3 out of 5 eggs Nice case, but... 11/22/2009

This review is from: NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros:

Nice looking case, easy to work with and the door swings open to the right, good if your PC is always sitting to the right. Thumb Screws for the main side panel.

Cons:

The screw holes for the side window and handle (on the inside of the main panel) are primarily stripped and don't stay on. I'm going to try and fix that with super glue or epoxy to keep the panels together.
Also, if you have a high RPM CD/DVD/BR drive, you WILL hear the vibrations (which is overcome with vibration dampeners (Like the Thermaltake A2384 Noise Dampening Kit).
The rear 120mm fan is slow and doesn't move a lot of air (mine starts off at around 700rpm and caps at a little over 1100rpm), so you might would want to get a new one with better air flow.

Other Thoughts:

If you are starting off building computers, this is not a terrible case to use, but save another $10, or so, and get the NZXT Guardian 921, it's a better case (I built my Bros PC with this case) and has some noise/vibration dampening features (and should also be better quality).
