1 out of 5 eggsMy last one of these..

Pros: Fit all of my components...

Cons: Put all components in, went to pick up from the handle. the top panel snapped right off breaking the tabs that connect it so its been hanging there the last couple years, forgot to write a review.
If you buy it dont buy it for the handle./.

5 out of 5 eggsMost portable Micro ATX case I've ever seen/used!

Pros: Super portable, perfect size, HANDLE ON TOP! Clean look. Lots of fan mounting options.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Been looking for a cheap micro ATX case that can fit a GeForce 970 GTX in it and run cool. Most importantly it had to be super portable and the handle on top is what sold me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for a LAN gaming system

Pros: Reasonably priced.
Nice simple design.
Good construction.

Cons: I haven't had any trouble with these cases, no cons.

Other Thoughts: You can take a micro-ATX board, an AMD or Intel processor and make a nice portable gaming system for LAN parties.
I suppose you could also set up a diagnostic system to take on-site for network/server service (but I imagine laptops have the corner on that market).

4 out of 5 eggsApex case was solid but their team was not

Pros: The case was great for my mini gaming build. My card fit nicely and the HDD space was great for fiting a 120mm fan behind it. The case was solid and overal dull and not sharp at all. the handle feels super awsome to carry. And installation of paarts was easy.

Cons: There are a few cons to this case though... for one and very big reason when they assembled this case I recieved the WRONG side panel. It was supposed to have a small hole with an 80mm attachment option. Instead I got a very large holes everywhere side panal. There is absolutley no cable manegment space whatsoever so be prepared to tuck it behind the bay drives. The case is also much larger than I expected it to be...

Other Thoughts: but for the price at which i got it on sale its decent and looks good

5 out of 5 eggsApex 381 Looks Great

Pros: Nicely designed/engineered product. Looks clean and simple. Meets basic function requirements. Comes with rear exhaust fan. Nice black paint and shiny plastic combo.
Inexpensive. Its 16" x 16" x 7.25" ??? so its not terribly small.

Cons: Threads for side panels are too easy to cross-thread. Must remove all of the breakout expansion slot covers before installing motherboard. Power button is a little flimsy. No cable space behind the board.

Other Thoughts: It's very light, getting the panels back on properly and not stripping the threads is tricky. I swapped in a set of thumbscrews I had. Definitely remove the expansion slot breakout covers first thing. Power supply should be modular if possible cx430m or like.

5 out of 5 eggs23 bucks for a capable case

Pros: • The Handle
• Compact
• Far sturdier than expected from a $23 case
• Inexpensive

Cons: • There truly is very little space in there
• The power button gets stuck often, needs a jiggle to loosen it.

Other Thoughts: This bad boy helped me keep mobile. I put it behind my drivers seat and go all over the place with it.

It is a capable and truly impressive little case. I recommend this case, even if you aren't trying to save money.
