Nice case 03/28/2014
This review is from: APEVIA Black SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-BK/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
A low cost well-built case. Despite the cons I listed below I like this case and would buy again.
This is marketed as a HTPC case. Apevia needs to lose the silver buttons which detract from a fairly decent looking case. The front facing firewire port is useless as my new ASUS motherboard doesn’t have this port. The front USB 2.0 ports should be USB 3.0. The blue led is a bit too bright for me. I ended up using electricians tape to partially cover it. I was shorted a couple of standoffs but was no big deal as I had spares.
If you use your own power supply make sure it’s modular as there’s not a lot of space to tuck those extra cables.
