5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Works well, the length is nice for full tower cases.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: When you have a older case that you love but can't get parts, this switch can keep you using the case you love.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Power Switch

Pros: - Wanting to do an external power switch for my office/gaming computer, I decided turning the PC on without having to bend (bad back) under the desk would be ideal. So, using the Apevia power switch and a two pin extension cable, I rigged it so that the extension cable plugged into the mobo's front header, exited out of the back PCI bracket holes, up to the top back of my case, then the Apevia connecting to that, ultimately ending up on my desk for easy access. Of course, this is just one use for the power switch.

- Can be used for turning on open chassis computers, or powering up motherboards that lack hardware power buttons on the PCB. Also useful for doing mods to your PC if you're into that kind of stuff.

- Has a good tactile feel to it when pressing it in.

- Does what it's supposed to do, a momentary power switch that'll work for any two-pin motherboard front panel header.

Cons: - This is the second one I've purchased, as the first one, after a few months of use, broke. I was repositioning it (my switch is modded into an altoids container) and the tugging of the cable caused the solder joint to separate from the cables. Instead of fixing it with solder, I decided for the price that buying a new one would be more time effective. Since my scenario of using this is unique, I doubt yours will necessarily break any time soon, nor that there is an issue with the build quality.

Other Thoughts: - Overall, it's a good switch that accomplishes a simple job. Like previously mentioned, can be used in a good amount of situations.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Fine.

Pros: It is certainly long enough. Does what it is supposed to do.

Cons: It could cost less.

Other Thoughts: Power button on my case broke (also manufactured by Apevia, ironically), and I have been using a flat head screw driver for a few weeks.

5 out of 5 eggsLong enough!

Pros: Very long cable! I had a snapped cable to replace because of length issues. This cable is a lot longer than you will ever need but I like that, gives enough room to route it and tie it down if necessary.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Works as desired, what else can I say.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Arrived very quickly! It works great! Turns on an off! Old switch in my Coolermaster case must of had a short inside the switch I gather. Would press the power button and would turn on then turn right off about 2 secs later unless i messed with switch itself. But no longer any issues! Good little switch! Oh and length is good for a mid-tower. Might be to short if used in full-tower case thou.

Cons: Didn't figure out sooner that I needed a new switch and bought a new PSU when it wasn't the problem... Oh well lesson learned. Lol
