3 out of 5 eggsWhat's the deal?

Pros: Decent ultra-low-end case
Used to be cheap
Decent space

Cons: No longer for sale in its value class
No fans
iffy steel
frustrating usb design that encourages accidental shutdowns/warm boots
New pricing scheme is rediculous

Other Thoughts: I bought this case a year ago just over $20 all-in, and it was well worth the price. For $35, I'd expect it to be made of titanium, not thin, sharp, highly-flexible steel.

Did steel just become a precious metal investment commodity, or something?
Why, when China faces economic implosion and gas prices are the lowest in 15 years, does the cost of buying and shipping a cheap Chinese case rise by 55%

Newegg, we still love you, and we understand why huge, heavy cases no longer qualify for Premier, but why does suddenly nothing qualify, and why does all of it suddenly cost so much more? We all love the cheaper hard drives and memory, but they don't really do consumers any good if we can't get a decent price on anything to put them in.
We're not asking for the moon, just some common sense and continuity.

3 out of 5 eggsNot pretty, gets the job done.

Pros: Inexpensive, serves its purpose

Cons: Ugly as the day is long

Other Thoughts: General statement about all Apex cases - they generally feel sturdier than other budget offerings, have little perks like removable drive bays, etc. and they are among the least attractive product line currently available.
This case is no exception, and underscores the need to hire only designers who can actually see the design themselves.

2 out of 5 eggsWould not purchase again

Pros: Price, only bought this case because of a combo deal.

Cons: -No cable management.
-Case is very cheap and flexes easy.
-Did not come with enough hardware (screws) for even a disk drive and HDD. Only enough for one or the other.
-The slots for PCI and such at back are metal brackets that have to be broken off and cannot be s c r e w e d back on. So if you ever remove a sound or network card you just have a hole.
-DOES NOT COME WITH ANY FANS AT ALLLLL. I will admit I did not read if it did or not but that is because I literally have never bought a case that didn't come with at least 2 fans. So half my fault for not reading but at the same time WHAT THE?

5 out of 5 eggsCheap but decent case

Pros: Comes with more than enough screws.
Comes with an in-case speaker (Audio).
Cheap for the case itself.
Has LED light bars for HDD and Power On/off (Vertical lines on the front of the case).

Cons: Some metal or alluminum is SHARP try not to rub against it you may get a cut.
Other than that the only other con is that the front fan doesn't have a vent for air flow (I'll be drilling one in for mine).

Other Thoughts: Pretty decent overall.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Case

Pros: The two vertical lines on the front panel of the case light up blue, if facing the front of the case, the left one is the HDD light and the other is just the power/message light.
Case is fine for the price.

Cons: No fans included, but you should know that when buying it.

Other Thoughts: put an 80mm fan on the side vent, 80mm fan on the back and front where the HDD goes. Not sure how much air fllow the front fan will provide as there is no vent in front, besides the space in between the front panel and case.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive Case!

Pros: Bought this case for a client and I was very impressed. Nice blue lights on the front, there is a lot of space, decent airflow. Came with plenty of screws.

Cons: Can easily cut yourself if you slip while installing a component so be careful. The metal can be sharp in some places.

1 out of 5 eggsThe Cons Out Weigh the Pros

Pros: low cost, and it has USB 2.0 with audio jacks in the front.

Cons: Connectors for the power switch and reset switch were in pieces when I opened the case. I ended up soldering on new connectors from an old case. The case itself rattles (it sounds like its going to explode) whenever my CPU or system fan gets up to speed. I ended up using weather stripping along the sides where the panels go on. That seemed to fix the issue, kind of. The last complaint is the lights on the front. Maybe its just me, but when you have on light strips that are the same color going up the opposite sides of the case, you'd thing they would be on at the same time. With this case, that's now how it is. The HDD lights are on one side while the power lights are on the other, so it looks like it has a lose connection seeings that one side sits there and blinks while the other is on continuously.

Other Thoughts: I wish I would have spent an extra 10 dollar on a different case. This is by far the worst case I've ever used.
