Apevia X-Pleasure Blue Aluminum Case ReviewSagittaria - July 23, 2006
Everyone needs some pleasure in life and Apevia’s X-Pleasure is designed to fulfill your desires. The structure of the case is built from aluminum with an all-plastic front plate that allows it to weigh in at a very light 19 pounds. Not only it being very light for a large tower case, it is also designed to be stylish with its classic analog temperature and fan speed gauges. Like most of Apevia’s cases, it comes in various colors and today I will be reviewing the blue version.
Apevia, formally known as Aspire, was established more than seven years ago in March of 1999. It has now become a very successful and well known company that has a wide array of products under its belt, including fans, power supplies, hundreds of cases, and various other accessories all with the enthusiast in mind.
I find the X-Pleasure quite appealing and quite cool looking at first glance, not too flashy and not plain looking. I was very excited when the case arrived with its dazzling array of features.
The box was quite an eye catcher when it arrived on my doorstep, making me even more excited. There were numerous pictures of the case itself along with the specifications. It arrived relatively unscathed and upon pulling it out of the box it teased me even more to its unseen glory.
Taking the case out of its wrappings revealed its beauty. The front panel has a couple of two-inch gauges for fan speed and temperature, which are backlit blue. The chrome surrounding the backlit plastic is very reflective. The windowed side panel has a large handle with a lock and the large window panel is secured with black plastic pieces. The rear of the case is nothing special with the usual items and the non-windowed side panel is plain.
