- looks sharp
- thin
- easy setup
- quiet
- included PSU = value
- kinda wish the green and pink headphone jacks in front were black or metal.
- while small, the case is still deceptively long
- video card options very limited (due to being slim)
I am not an experienced PC builder, but I had no issues with this case. Flip up drive bay made installing the HD easy. Included PSU is ample for my AM1 system. Piano black looks sharp and build quality seems solid. Included feet hold it up solidly should you choose to go vertical. Would definitely buy again for HTPC or kids all-purpose / gaming PC.

Great for HTPC Setup
Front panel may be easy to scratch in the future
Bought this case for an HTPC setup. Some older reviews complained about a noisy 80mm case fan, but I haven't needed to change it because I'm actually quite happy with the supplied fan. I only hear the fans spin up for 2 seconds when the system powers up, and that's probably the CPU fan; other than that it's quiet.

I'm running a Celeron G1610 + Gigabyte B75M-D3H in an HTPC setup.

It looks decent with the front cover closed. I'm thinking about adding a blu-ray drive in the future, but for now there's no need to open the front panel.

Sleek and compact, front USB ports, nice hinged cover to hide CDROM bays and USB ports. Includes 275watt power supply and very inexpensive.
275 watt power supply was more than enough for me, but maybe not enough for some people
I'm super impressed by this case - if you're looking for something inexpensive but quality, and don't mind only having 275 watt power supply this is perfect. I was building servers with just a motherboard, RAM and processor, so the 275 watt power supply was more than enough. I highly recommend this case - it feels quality, looks professional (I ordered the glossy black model) and is dirt cheap.

small, quiet, decent airflow, looks sleek
would be nice if the USB and front audio could be hidden as well
Used for POS cash register machines. Small, quiet, and cool, and it fits the bill perfectly. Doesn't look half bad either. was surprised at how quiet the PSU and included case fan is.

Colour and style
Front door opens and closes cleanly (stealth-magnet clasp)
Low profile limits expansion
Power supply limits total system power
Case fan and PSU fan are a bit noisy at stock
Matched this case with one of the new AMD A8 3850 APUs and mATX motherboard, and it has not disappointed. As has been said before, this case is a bit of a tight fit for whatever you're installing - the tray that holds the drives closed down just above the main power plug on my motherboard (MSI A75MA-G55), so the install was a little exciting. However, once everything is in and cleaned up, it operates as a pretty tight little package. I outfitted the case fan and (extremely accessible) PSU fan with speed controllers, which quieted the otherwise noisy units down - they only needed the edge taken off to remove any whine. Unit runs cool, even under load the stock HSF doesn't spin up much past 2500 rpm, and my Kill-A-Watt says it hasn't pulled a peak past 110 Watts in 2 months, so I think the PSU will be just fine. I think this case complements the new AMD APUs perfectly, as the ventilation is set up perfectly for an integrated video solution, and the A8 has plenty of horsepower for what I want to do with it. Would purchase again.

Solid build, everything fits well.
Fan is a bit loud.
I bought this case to use for a server. It has been working well for nearly 2 months. The mobo fan fit in fine. The fan is a bit loud but I am using it as a server so that doesn't really matter. Haven't had any issues with the front panel as others have mentioned.

Low price, sturdy construction.
Function follows form here, so air flow suffers.
Back in 2002 I built my wife a computer using a case called Antec Minuet. This case appears to be a direct knockoff of that case, without the glossy paint and metal trimmed face. This case is much cheaper so who would expect a nice paint job like that of an old Antec?
This case is sturdy enough and easy to work with if you're experienced. It isn't ideal for a first build, but hardly any small form factor cases are.
If the power supply is anything like the Antec it ought to last about four-five years before the capacitors will need replacement. Certainly a heck of a deal, like all the Apex cases I have used, especially when on sale.

small form factor
will PSU last long?
noisy fan at full speed
I bought this to build my home lab, due to small form factor it is space saving, and I am running diskless on some builds, so it is perfect for me.

In BIOS, tune down the system fan speed, no more jet engine noise level.

I do hope that the 275W PSU will last for at least three years, keep in mind they are running a few hours a day.

- Price
- Elegant simple design
- 275w is more than enough for a basic PC
- Fits only one hard drive
- PSU wires are a nightmare for wire management
I bought this as an office PC and so far it hasn't disappointed. I really like the design and the front cover. The 275W might be of questionable quality, but as long as I don't draw maximum amperage, I think this thing will last a while.

Experience: 2 Days
small and slim, somewhat quiet, includes PS, fantastic price
only 275w power supply, slight vibration noise, exhaust fan could be quieter.
Really loving this case, fits into any cheap build budget unless you need a case for gaming. 275w doesnt seem like a lot, but with new hardware being so much more efficient you really dont need more. Runs an MSI H55-E33 / i3 540 combo no problem.
Looks wise, the case is nothing special. Pretty clean front panel, front flips out to expose the optical drive or 3.5" if you put something there.
The exhaust fan is a little noisey, could be quieter. I have also noticed that it makes a slight humming noise, but it seems to be related to vibration noise coming from the tiny rubber feet. I'm going to put in some sound deadening material inside to see if I can silence the vibration. Still, for $43 I cant complain.

Also, dont know if anyone has noticed, but this case is pretty much identical to the Antec Minuet 350. Only differences are 350w vs 275w power supply, front flip and the Antec has an e-sata on the front.
