2 out of 5 eggs Beware. know what you are getting 03/26/2013

This review is from: APEX Black Steel DM-532-U3 Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Nice looking, good fit overall, quiet

Cons: Though I said good fit I did run into a problem. My WD Raptor does not fit in the HDD location, it is to wide. But I toss that up to the heat sink as much as the case. However, all of the drives bolt from the bottoms, not the sides. Not a problem for normal drives, however my Rosewill 5.25 to 3.5 hot swap bay only bolts from the sides. very frustrating. Also the drive bay doors break easily. Do not force them.

Other Thoughts: I give it a 2 because of the problems above and lack of info. Shouldn't be a problem for most but beware if you can't bolt your drives from the bottom. And there isn't much space inside, I would recommend against using any PCIE cards.
