This review is from: APEVIA X-TROOPER Series X-TRP-RD Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: I am quite satisfied. This is a sleek, sturdy, roomy case. My personal feature highlights:
-The cable-routing capabilities of this case impressed me right off the bat. There isn't a single wire used therein that I wasn't able to conceal in the back. It makes everything look very tidy; I make a habit of showing off any build I put together to my buddies, but this one is truly my personal masterpiece thus far.
-Features what I like to call a "plug-and-play" setup: most of the parts installed just slide/lock into place, without much hassle like screws or jagged edges.
-The red/black color scheme is a personal favorite of mine, behind only green/black.
-I gotta say, while it's a pretty common feature nowadays, having the PSU mounted at the bottom is a great thing.
Cons: Only two things come to my mind after about a month of ownership, and to be honest, they don't bother me enough to drop any eggs from its rating:
-The 3.5" hard drives slide pretty easily into place; they don't need screws... but the connectors face the back. While this is preferential for concealing and routing your wires, I have a feeling that if I ever need to replace one of my hard drives, it won't be as easy as one would like.
-The fans that come with this case are pretty loud. They do move a lot of air, but as a home theater/media center PC enthusiast I tend to appreciate low-decibel cooling. This isn't a big deal to me though since I built it for gaming and not media presentation, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: Overall a great case worthy of five eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
