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...

4 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Cheap and does the job. I was expecting the case to be made out of some low grade construction paper but it actually isnt too bad for a 20$ case.

Cons: Fairly weak materials. the case should be fine as long as your not moving it around frequently.

Other Thoughts: People who are giving the case 1 or 2 eggs are forgetting its 20$ for a PC case. that's like buying a smart car and being upset it doesn't perform as well as a Lamborghini

3 out of 5 eggsATX is too big for this case

Pros: Light case, cheap. Plenty of room for smaller boards.

Cons: The case does not have screw holes for stand off screws on the right side of ATX sized mother boards. It still lines up with 6 other holes. Still powers on, just a weird issue. Apex needs to re-think their labeling.

Other Thoughts: Other than the size mishap, its a case. It does what its supposed to do.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for the money

Pros: Cheap, nice looking (better than the pics) and great functionality. No sharps edges and construction is quite good for a sub $25 case. Holds plenty of HHD's. 4 USB ports. Love the flexibility of four 5" front drive bays and a 3.5" front drive bay. Holds two 120mm fans on the side.

Cons: Does not include any fans. Front and exhaust fan support only 80-90mm. No SSD support (you will need a bracket). No USB 3.0 port

Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised by how nice of a case this is for being under $25. The front is a glossy finish. It is still a no frills case but it looks higher-end and is fairly solid for the price. Plan on spending extra, however on fans and SSD bracket.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's alright

Pros: I was really surprised at the quality of this case, given the price of it. It came in and wasn't bent, no screws missing, and the weight was light. I liked the USB2 support, given that my motherboard doesn't support 3.0.

Cons: Extremely sharp, I didn't even realize that my hand was bleeding until I saw some drops of blood on the floor. Be careful when handling this.

The front panel is pretty cheap, and the USB ports are upside down. The audio jacks make a static sound whenever you plug a headset in, had to plug it in the motherboard jacks to get it to work right. It's also hard to plug USB devices in, it's like trying to stick your wiener through a Cheerio.

Other Thoughts: If only the front panel was better I would give it another egg, the sharpness is something I can handle if I had more care.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: This case has a few good things going for it. The mostly metal design provides a sturdy structure and a clean black very average look to it. Lots of mounting options for fans has provided my system good airflow. Other than that your paying a cheap price for a very average case.

Cons: This case also has its fair share of issues. Most of them I have found are in the front usb and audio ports. First off the usb ports in my case are upside down which isn't a huge problem but it drives my ocd insane. The next issue is when you have a usb device plugged into a front port the front audio port has a large hum being output, easy fix (use a sound card or motherboard audio or don't use the front usb ports) but there is one huge problem, after about 3 months of using the case when I went to plug my phone charger into a front usb port and the whole fixture slid back so I popped the front off pushed the fixture forward again but the problem is it wasn't do to a loose screw they were both tight and now unless I am very gentle this happens every time I plug something in. Other than that be careful of the edges of the metal on the inside of the case, I cut my self pretty bad when building my computer.

Other Thoughts: Great case for a first build, it is very cheap.
