Pros:

Decent cable length, durable design. Unique appearance, easy to customize, pretty easy to assemble. Excellent ventilation. Neat temperature gauge. Cool bright LED fans. Supports all sorts of hardware, much universal. Wow.

Cons:

Upon first inspection, I noticed that the PCI bay covers in the back are connected to the chassis and once you remove them once, you cannot put the covers back on. This could get annoying in the future, and if you plan on removing your GPU, sound card, etc. now you'll have to worry about dust getting into your system. Fitting the I/O shield on the case was a task and almost resulted in me breaking the shield. Also didn't like how the case didn't come with 2.5" HDD mounting capabilities (I had to order the enclosures seperately). If your motherboard has any front panel headers on the bottom left corner of the mobo (when mounted, right above the power supply), you'll run into cable length issues. I had to order an extension cable for the front panel HD audio because it was a few inches away from reaching. Once my entire computer was assembled and was ready to power on, I realized that the front panel power button was defective. I thought it was my motherboard's headers, but after reversing the connections with the reset and power buttons I could get the reset button to power the motherboard on just fine. When I did this, the power button did not reset the computer as it should have. Not only is this a real PITA, but it isn't what I would have expected out of this case.

Now I'm debating on whether it's worth it to disassemble everything and RMA the case with Apevia or to just suck it up and use the reset switch as the power button :/ Maybe if I choose to keep it, I'll try to repair the power button myself by removing the front panel and resoldering the button's connections. Meh.

Other Thoughts:

I would give the case an extra egg if it wasn't defective out of the box; it's a shame because I really like the case and was interested in keeping it for my build. The cable issues can be worked around, but a defective power switch sort of drives me away.

Manufacturer Response:

There is one spot for a 2.5" hard drive, at the bottom under the 3.5" bays. You'll have to screw it to the bottom of the case, though. The user's manual should show how to do this.
For the cables, you can cut the tie holding them to the case body, which should lengthen them enough to reach the appropriate plugs on the motherboard.
For the power switch, you can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.
