Conclusion: Apevia shipped the X-Qpack 2 CM500 case inside of the retail packaging, which was strong enough to survive the POW torments of UPS and still arrive looking pretty. The biggest appeal to these cases are the size, and since the retail package is both small and colorful, there is plenty of reason to believe that it would do very well on any retail shelf. The X-Qpack 2 series as a whole are some of the most attractive SFF cases I have seen.
Pros: Extremely lightweight chassis, Excellent ergonomic design, Display windows on three sites, Convenient retractable carry handle, Front panel USB and audio jacks, High-quality aluminum construction, Plenty of room for most component, Attractive design and very customizable
Cons: Cooling ventilation could be improved, Should color match LED fans to bezel, Needs replaceable bezel inserts
