This review is from: APEX TX-381 Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX12V 300W Power Supply
Pros: Handle on the top is nice. Overall design is simple and elegant... As elegant as $50 with a power supply.
Cons: Metal is thin and the case panels dent easily.
Over the years they must have switched manufacturers for the front side USB cable pigtail to motherboard. The cable is too short to reach most motherboard USB connectors (they are normally located at the bottom of the motherboard). If you have a aftermarket graphics card plan on cutting the case roof from the inside and cross your fingers its long enough.
Some of the edges are sharp in the cage area for the CDROM and hard drive. If you plan on tucking cables into an open bay watch your fingers and the cable so you don't shave the sheild on the cables.
Other Thoughts: PS I own 2 of these cases one I bought like 3 years ago and one a few days ago.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: cheap and fairly fast
Cons: Old of the 10 or so I've ordered for customers I've discovered they have a 35% failure rate. One of my customers is coming back with his second dead one after less than a month of use... I will never order this model again.READ FULL REVIEW
