Choosing a case is always a momentous occasion. Once you have assembled your core parts that make your rig what it will be, you begin the search based on a few basic needs, and branch out from there. Mid-tower, full tower, SFF (small form factor), HTPC (home theatre PC), windowed, water cooled...the list goes on and on, limited only by your imagination and budget. Apevia currently has over 130 cases available to fit the needs of any system builder. The X-Jupiter Jr. S Type is a mid-tower and the little brother to the X-Jupiter S Type, which is a full-tower. The X-Jupiter Jr comes in two flavors, the G Type which has a windowed side panel, and the S Type with a 250mm fan installed in the side panel. It is currently available in four colors (black, silver, metallic grey and blue).
“Apevia Corporation is the new name for Aspire International Corporation which was established in March 1999. Due to lots of confusions between Aspire cases, Acer's Aspire Notebook systems and Aspire Credit Cards, the company decided to change the name to Apevia Corporation in June 2006. Apevia designs, imports and markets PC parts, including computer cases, accessories and peripherals, such as case fans, power supplies and matching color keyboard/mouse/speaker kits. In 2004, to ensure the products' quality and provide better services to its customers, Apevia consolidated the cases, power supplies, input devices, and accessories all under the Aspire logo (now under the new "Apevia" logo). From designing the prospective products to offering final products to its customers, each process is carefully and strictly evaluated to meet its highest standards and market demands. Apevia delivers reliable, quality products, competitive prices, steady supply and excellent services, as well as its commitment to 'total customer satisfaction.' ”
Upon first look, the box of the X-Jupiter Jr. shows the case contained inside. The box does double duty for the G Type and S Type cases as indicated on the respective front and side shots. By the dents in the box, it appears UPS dropped it a few times; we'll have to examine the case later for damage.
Opening the box reveals the Styrofoam packaging and case wrapped in plastic.
