3 years running 24/7 as my pfSense box..

Nicole H., Newegg
24 March 2016
  • Summary: My pfSense build: [-] This case [-] ASRock H61M-DGS [-] Intel Celeron G530 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G530 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics [-] G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS [-] (2x) Intel...
  • Pros: [-] Very affordable and very reliable Power Supply. [-] Using my Kill a Watt and confirmed by my UPS unit, it pulls a whopping 18 watts (full build for my pfSense in the "other" comments) [-] Well built and everything I needed fit perfectly in it. [-] 3 years of running 24/7 in the washroom (wher...
  • Cons: [-] I could do without the silver two-tone, but, it's stuck up on a shelf in a wash room, so...

Good for the price

Peter S., Newegg
15 February 2016
  • Summary: Overall, I felt this case was fine. I just feel the front wasn't designed properly - seems like it was designed without being tested. I'm not feeling confident the PSU will last long. Otherwise, this is just fine for an office PC.
  • Pros: * Sturdy metal, and no sharp corners * Relatively easy to work with. * Plenty of expansion room for such a small case * Looks decent
  • Cons: * Front buttons are very stiff * Pressing the front buttons will somewhat flex the plastic; feels fragile * PSU seems to run pretty hot * Exhaust fan has good airflow, but is somewhat loud. Not all motherboards can regulate the speed of it. * Not much of a con, but there doesn't seem to be any th...

Terrible design, flimsy, piece of junk

Anonymous, Newegg
22 January 2016
  • Summary: - This thing is awful, just terrible - Requested an RMA since it's a terrible product and my estimated return was $0.81, what a great deal that is. Might as well resell it online at an auction retailer instead of returning it. Won't be buying anything through here again.
  • Pros: - The cons outweigh the pros so much so that I can't think of any pros.
  • Cons: - DVD drive bay door doesn't lock in place, just flops - PSU blows hot exhaust directly at CPU heatsink making it work twice as hard - It's basically a slim desktop tower, way too much empty space - Screw threads are too big so motherboard sits loosely (don't use it vertically)

The best low profile gaming case ever

Albert F., Newegg
12 January 2016
  • Summary: A must have if you want to have a solid portable gaming case but want to use a micro-ATX board. And the cooling is fairly good. I don't recommend high profile CPU coolers due to the lack of width here.
  • Pros: Very easy to build in. I threw in my motherboard, graphics card, and SSD in 20 minutes and I really like the lift-able cage for the hard drives. Solid design and the build is very good. No issues with my power supply yet either ways.
  • Cons: Maybe sharp edges? I don't know but there could be some close calls? Pretty dense for a case but at least it's not flimsy.

The Poorest Made of Cases

Mark O., Newegg
20 December 2015
  • Summary: Six cases bought... not one was perfect out of the box! 1. plastic retaining clips broken off the front face 2. front decorative covers fell off (not secured properly) 3. audio plug was smashed and one prong broken 4. flip down door on the CD/DVD slot had a missing spring on the hinge. 5.
  • Pros: If I was comparing this case with many others on the market I would have no pros about it.
  • Cons: I can't tell you where to begin. I bought 6 of these for a project and not one case was delivered intact and completely without defect. I should have known that while I was unpacking them I heard pieces inside the box. Things don't fit correctly in this case and just in general I want to be able ...

keep looking

John C., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Summary: Typically, I'm forgiving and easy to please. Keep looking, this one falls short on too many points.
  • Pros: Slim size, I like the power button. Gauge of metal is adequate, not super cheap or flimsy. I won't go so far as to say there's "cable management" but there is a nice spot to tuck most everything away behind the optical/HDD rack.
  • Cons: No switch to turn ps on/off. Also, ps lacks ATX 12V (8 pin) power connector that has been required by every mb I've ordered in recent history. Thankfully I had an adaptor. Also regarding ps: fan grill has large gaps, had to open the case twice to reroute cable that was falling into the fan. Optic...

Nice case, good design

Benoit L., Newegg
5 December 2015
  • Summary: I can only see this case being used in low profile builds. Other than the side panel being a little snug, I had no issues with it.
  • Pros: -Small and Simple -Lots of room to work (you can remove the ODD mount)
  • Cons: -Front panel has a tight fit, was hard to take off

Buy the Apex case instead

Erik M., Newegg
25 October 2015
  • Summary: Just buy the Apex case. Same thing and no carving necessary. Haven't had it long enough to see if the PSU holds up but the same one on my Apex has been running for 3 years now.
  • Pros: This is an APEX DM-387 with a different bezel on the front. Fan is quiet though larger than the included one on the Apex case.
  • Cons: Same cons as the Apex (though I did find a Startech card reader with bottom mount holes). However, the front bezel sucks. It's super flimsy, broke the drive door fast (replaced pin with part of a toothpick). The biggest issue though is that the dimensions for the optical drive are way too thin. I...

Scott Walters, Amazon
28 August 2015
  • Summary: access panel would not seat evenly, really gaudy in person, not good build quality, I disliked it at first sight has a power supply and lots of space, real upside there, just not the case for me
