Cons: needs USB 3.0 not 1394 on front
Other Thoughts: I'm hoping Apevia will update the front panel with USB 3 otherwise I can't complain about the case for this price. I've been using these for years now and other than a bad power supply here and there they really are a value. Love the small footprint.
And one other suggestion, instead of the Hard drive temp probe I suggest relabeling to GPU. I only use SSD's now and now attach the HDD probe to our Quadro cards. Not that it is really needed but I bet many others are going SSD now. We use these in a tool and die shop.
Pros: Price and features. 500w PS. temp LCD's, attractive, cooling fans....
Cons: cheap packaging for hardware. Deserves 5 eggs but this one made me mad all because of a little plastic bag.
Other Thoughts: I've bought at least a dozen of these for our shop over recent years. This one came with the little plastic bag of screws emptied out into the whole thing. What a mess. I could have RMA'd but instead spent a half hour taking off the front panel and even removed the PS to shake every last screw free. Apevia, please consider upgrading the packaging.
I agree these cases are made of light weight alum but when they are buttoned up they are quite sturdy and for the price you can't beat it.
Pros: cheap price
Cons: no digital DVI cable included
Other Thoughts: this is the first time I bought LCD monitors (dozens in the last 10 years) that I didn't get both the vga and dvi cables. fortunately I had a couple extra to fill the need but I was surprised.
My first review was not posted by NewEgg, I complained about free shipping. We'll see if they post this one. I've been a long time fan of NewEgg but....
