4 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: Inexpensive, looks nice, plenty of room inside. Good ventilation. Satin black finish with a nice plain jane front panel. Nothing fancy here, it holds the components as advertised.

Cons: Side panels are a bit thin but are okay once the box is closed.

Update: Front panel USB board is not held in very well and has the tendency to slip back from the bezel. Easy to solve with a drop of super glue on the hold down slots. The USB ports have weak interiors and the inner tab will break easily, so be nice to the ports and dont put a lot of pressure up or down on them or you'll break the inner tab.

Other Thoughts: I removed an egg because of the weakness of the front USB board in both the mounting and the internal tabs. Othwise for the money it is a good value just treat it nice.

1 out of 5 eggsNot made for ATX

Pros: It's cheap. Like so cheap I'm not even going to bother to RMA it.

Cons: 1. Although it states it supports ATX boards there is only enough backing to really hold a Micro ATX down firmly. This case only has two columns worth of backing leaving the right side of the board dangling, which feels horrible when you are supporting it by hand as you try to connect things.
2. I don't even know where it is pretending an optional 120mm fan is going to fit on the side. Was this an error?

Other Thoughts: If you are planning on using an ATX board keep looking.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid it unless you have what you need

Pros: It's an absolutely no frills computer case

Cons: - No fans.
- Light-weight and flimsy.
- CAN NOT MOUNT FANS LARGER THAN 80 MM!!! (Yes, I know the specifications say it can, but it can't without drilling new holes.)

Other Thoughts: Look, this is a cheap tin box. It's too cheap to return, so I'll eat the cost, but the fans I ordered won't fit, the description doesn't say it can't take 120 fans and it's got nothing else at all to recommend it. If you want to build a QUIET computer, look elsewhere. This won't cut it. Your fans will be too small and have to run too fast to be quiet.

I'll order a new case with at least the capacity to mount fans but I'm getting really tired of buying cases that are utter junk - this is two in a row. I know this is cheap, but they said it would mount a 120 MM fan on the side (at least) and it won't. Not even close.

So it goes in the trash and I order another one and I'm angry as hell about it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, cheap case

Pros: Lightweight
Simple Design
Cheap
Nice, squishy power button (very satisfying to press :D )

Cons: Flimsy

No space behind motherboard for cable routing, not even sure what right panel is for other than screwing in drives

4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: * Light-weight
* Clean appearance
* Smaller than your average mid-tower
* 4 USB ports on the front, and they're stiff too

Cons: * Not good if you intend to replace parts often - you'll probably end up stripping the screw holes if you do
* Flimsy metal. I've seen worse but it doesn't take much to warp the frame.
* Though the USB ports themselves are stiff, the mounting of them is pretty loose
* Aside from this only shipping with 6 mounting brackets, there isn't much room for a full-sized ATX board (with 9 mounting points) and several drives.
* If you have a 3rd party CPU heatsink, you'll have to take the motherboard out to mount it.
* The side panel that shipped with my case doesn't match the one in the images.

Other Thoughts: I bought this tower because it was on sale and the motherboard I was going to put in it only required 6 mounting brackets. That being said, I have sufficient space to add as many drives as I want. I knew the dimensions of this board were fairly limiting to any serious PCs, but this computer involves cheap parts I put together for a Hackintosh, so it works for me.

For what I need it for, this case does the job just fine. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a cheap PC that involves a motherboard with 6 mounting brackets. Otherwise, at its full price, this case isn't very good and will not suffice for any PC that involves many drives or large expansion cards.

If you luck out and get the side panel shown in the images, this case can offer some decent cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsWhat you need to know

Pros: Came quick, no dents or missing parts, under $25.

Cons: Here's what you REALLY need to know. There are NO fans in this case to start. Order up a few when you order this. It's been awhile since I've bought a case that didn't already have at least two fans in it and I had to scrounge a pair when making the swap to this case to reclaim a desktop..so get the fans, you'll need them.

Secondly, even with a miniATX board, you'll be hanging a row of mount holes unsupported. The support bump (apparently using an "H" triggers a Newegg filter..lol) doesn't go all the way, even for the smaller MBs. Plan on it

Other Thoughts: Both sides come off this case so why they point the hard drive cages back into the motherboard is beyond me when you can flip them and access from both sides like better made cases. Why anyone is still orienting hard drive cages that way is beyond me. It's stupid, lazy design.

But it's still a $25 case, looks like office cases and functions fine beyond the caveats mentioned above.

5 out of 5 eggsGood case

Pros: It's roomy and easy to get into to work on/install parts in. Holds plenty of drives too. Would recommend to a friend and have.

Cons: Front audio port broke but everything seems to work fine besides that.

3 out of 5 eggsFor the money, not bad.

Pros: Good for the money. Seems to be cut to proper dimensions. Fair quality

Cons: Problem here was that even though the box seemed fine, one door of the case was badly bent out of shape, bad enough that it couldnt be bent back into shape.

5 out of 5 eggsBasic box for your goods.

Pros: This is a good box. I have had it over a year and no complaints. Plenty of places to put fans.

I would buy it again.

Cons: As noted before, mine came with the front usb ports upside down. They all seem to work fine though. Just one of those things.

Other Thoughts: Not bad for a cheap box. Definitely better than cardboard!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bargain

Pros: 1- Three day Premier shipping turned out to be *two* days
2- Fast order/shipping processing
3- Arrived intact
4- You can side mount a 120mm fan (holes lined up)
5- Large/stiff power button
6- Four USB ports on front (mine are not loose)
7- Although its a mid tower there is plenty of room

Cons: 1- Thin gauge (all cheap cases are)
2- A 92mm case fan will not fit on the back (80 & 90mm will)
3- Not enough brass motherboard risers included for ATX motherboard
4- One zip tie included??
5- Case speaker is a short waiting to happen ( I did not use it)
6- USB ports are mounted upside down; however had NO effect on my wireless Logitech K400r keyboard

Other Thoughts: At $24.99 you can not expect a high quality case, but I have always had good experiences with Apex. Luckily, I am using a micro ATX motherboard and already was aware of the upside down mounted USB ports. It was a pleasant surprise to see a 120mm fan will line up on case's side vent holes. Although some have stated the power button is mushy and USB ports were loose mine does not have these two issues. All wiring is plenty long enough too. For a basic pc, HTPC, or even a budget gamer build this case will work nicely. If I had not discovered a 120mm fan will bolt up to side vent holes I was going to take out my drill/bit to modify this case to fit a rear 92mm case fan. I like it...
