APEVIA X-JUPITER-JR G-Type X-JPJGT-AL Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is my second Apevia case that I have purchased from Newegg since 2006. The other was a full tower case tha I am veryy happy with. (discontinued)
The side panel fan is huge (260mm I think). Two diffrent temp sensors and gauges are built in (CPU and HDD temp). The case is relativley light and does NOT require any tools to install drives. A built-in latching mechanism is used for this.
(see below).

Cons: The case utilizes a pressure/latching mechanism to hold drives in place. This is an innovative design but makes it impossible to secure the drives with screws. The floppy drive still moves a bit if pressed! The drive bay assemblies are fixed and cannot be removed so the drives are only secured from one side.
This overall size of the side panel fan is a bit imposing and reduces the amount of internal (side-to-side) clearance by a couple of inches. This in turn limits the size of the CPU fan that can fit inside a loaded case. The CPU fan should be a low-profile type unless you remove the side panel fan.

Other Thoughts: This case could be dramatically improved if the drive bays were removable (like my full tower case) and that drives could be attached with philips-screws in lieu of the pressure/latching slider bars.
There is NO front fan. I doubt it is possible to install one. The hard drives are mounted "sideways" with the rear of the drive facing the side panel door. So you may need longer HDD cables to reach the motherboard.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Well built and easy to install.

Probably more power than I need
until I upgrade the video card.

Cons: All connectors are black.
This may initially be confusing.

No rear fan or manual fan adjustment.

Other Thoughts: The various 12 volt bus lines are NOT labeled. This would help a lot when you are trying to balance the load among the various lines.
For instance, you would (ideally) want to connect your video card to the bus line with the lightest load.

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KVR533D2S4/1G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As noted by other reviewers
this memory is a GREAT compliment
to many of the DELL Laptops.
No BIOS changes are required.

Cons: May be tricky to install due to layout in underside of Laptop.

Other Thoughts: Installed as additional
memory in a DELL Inspiron 6000.
Now running with 1.5 gig
using Windows XP.
No problems.
