Pros: Product seems to work well.
Cons: Complied with rebate instructions to the letter. Got notice of invalid UPC. Apparently I'm smart enough to send in the right documents, but dumb enough to get played by Seasonic's rebate scam.
Buy their product if you wish, but prepare to pay sticker.
I build often, both for friends and my own. For this recent build I received my other rebates from ASUS and PNY no problem. Seasonic couldn't make it happen. So Seasonic, that makes you incompetent, or willful criminals.
Cheers to Seasonic's wiz-kid in Finance that came up with the "cheat our customers" business plan. The $20 you kept from me (and I presume many others that don't take this seriously) will keep me from buying Seasonic in the future.
This review is from: APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
Pros: Plenty of room inside w/ micro atx m-board. Top mount ports. Handle makes moving it around convenient. Build went smoothly. Padlock tabs were easily bent back into case to keep them out of the way. Used top 5 1/4 bay to store extra power cables. As equipped (see build below) pretty quiet.
Cons: Very little documentation w/ case - no biggie for me, but a noob would have trouble connecting front panel cables to m-board. One egg off for that.
Other Thoughts: Great case! Built as a replacement to an old iMac for parents who needed basic web, e-mail, iTunes, etc. Space is at a premium and this little case was perfect for their workspace. Went with other posters' advice and added a 120mm fan to the front.
