This review is from: APEVIA X-TELSTAR-JR G-Type X-TSJGT-GN Green SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The color and overall look of the case.
I haven't managed to break it yet, but then again I haven't had it long and I'm gentle with it.
It's not at all cramped with what I've got in it, and there's plenty of room for wire management, once I get around to it.
Oh, and it's pretty!
Cons: People have said the fans are loud.
The USB ports are upside down, it's just a little annoying.
The external 5.25 bay slot covers were hard to pop out on mine at first.
The gauge isn't blue. An odd con I'm sure, but when you buy a case based on looks, if one part is just plain ugly, then it's rather upsetting. My gauge is an ugly purple that just mares the green-blue-black color theme of the case.
The gauge also has to be read from basically dead on, any angle and it becomes hard to read.
Other Thoughts: As noted in other reviews, the color is a bit different from the pictures, it's actually more of a kelly green instead of a lime green. Still a pretty color.
About the loud fans, I keep a fish tank in my room and I can hardly hear the fans over the filter of my fish tank, so I've never really minded.
This was originally supposed to go on my desk, but has since been moved to the floor, to my left. The front USB ports, headphone/mic jacks, and fan controller are just out of reach and the gauge can't be read from up here. But I'm also glad the gauge isn't in my field of vision.
Knowing what I do know, I'd have gone with the silver version of this case (to offset the color clashing) or RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black ATX-612WEB (the other case I was looking at before getting this one).
