Pros: Good quality power supply. I brought this for my new DVR build. Nice and quiet.
Cons: It's not modular. I wish I noticed this before buying. There's not alot of room in a HTPC case. This means you got to be creative stashing the unneeded cables.
Other Thoughts: Handles my power requirements without breaking a sweat.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does what I want it to do without breaking a sweat. Handles HD video easily.
Cons: The supplied fan could be better.
Other Thoughts: Brought this for my HTPC and paired it with a ASUS Z87-EXPERT MB. No need for a video card - I just use the HDMI output on the motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA Black SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-BK/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: A low cost well-built case. Despite the cons I listed below I like this case and would buy again.
Cons: 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.
Other Thoughts: 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.READ FULL REVIEW
