Apevia X-Telstar Red/Black Case Review

Conclusions:

I'm somewhat at ends after using this case. The front panel door mechanism is flimsy and fragile, a front panel tab is already broken and the front panel overall just looks inexpensive for the amount of money spent. I'm also disappointed with the lack of a front intake fan and the side panel fan design is something that was less than ideal for the look of the case - it really reminds me of a sunflower. However, the gauge and built-in fan controller are quite nice, but it looks like you're paying for the gauge and the front panel went out of the window as a result. Now that I think about it, the gauge is not particularly useful - only for looks. The analog dials are too small to be of any use and the only things really readable on it are the temperatures.

Honestly, I cannot recommend or mark this case as poor. On one hand, this case does have a nice window, gauge and an interesting design. Yet on the other hand, the case front panel is definitely not the greatest of quality. So, if you like the design, size, looks of the case and don't mind spending a bit more, then the X-Telstar is for you.

 

Pros:

  • Cool gauge
  • Window
  • Interesting look
  • Built-in fan controller
  • Large and roomy

 

Cons

  • Flimsy front panel
  • No front intake fan
