APEX DM-387 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great design, stylish, not a difficult build, people like it.

Cons: The power supplies have been a problem. I've ordered 20 of these so far this year and 4 power supplies have failed on the build bench and another in a customer's home. That's a 25% failure rate - not acceptable. The only way to RMA the power supply is to RMA the whole case. Once the build is done, who wants to go through that.

Other Thoughts: A replacement power supply is available and has been, so far, very reliable: SL-300TFX - use the method of your choosing to search for it. They're about thirty-five bucks.

Our Build:
AMD FX-6300
Gigabyte Motherboard GA-78LMT-USB3
Crucial 8GB RAM Kit CT2CP51264BA160B
500GB Seagate 3.5" Hard Drive
Windows 7 or 8.1

APEX DM-318 Black Steel Micro ATX Media Center / Slim HTPC Computer Case w/ ATX12V TFX 275W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: We build custom computers all week long. Not only do my customers love this unit, so do I. Great cooling for a slim-line case, easy build access and after 5 builds, not one band-aid needed. Easy access front panels with FireWire. A sturdy, good looking case that stands on end or lays down flat. Everything you need for a Media Center PC build. Not recommended for a high-end build or gaming rig as the power unit is not strong enough for that. Makes a great basic build though. See "Other Thoughts" for build specs we are using.

Cons: The boxes arrive stressed but I blame UPS, not the manufacturer - and definitely not NewEgg. Even though the boxes are rough I have not had one broken case yet.

Other Thoughts: This build works great for us; our customers love it:
MSI A55M-P33
AMD A4-3400
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
LG 24X DVD Burner
Windows 8
- Add a Radeon HD Low Profile with HDMI and you're set!

Mach Speed Trio Stealth 7c 4.0 ARM Cortex-A8 4GB Flash Memory Memory Capacitive Touch Screen Internet Tablet Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I own a computer store and sell a lot of these tablets - my customers love them. They are snappy for the money and have a tolerable display that doesn't suck :) Note: Netflix will work on these if you install Netflix 1.8 or 1.9.

Cons: Out of 6 units purchased in the last 4 weeks one would not connect to wifi. RMA to NewEgg fixed that (thank's NewEgg).

Other Thoughts: Remember, these are not high-priced tablets so don't expect high-priced performance. However, for the price, these are great!
