Cons: none that are really important. Yes i knew before ordering that a door has to be opened to access the optical drives.

Pros: Lots of room for cables and large video cards. No need to cram stuff. unique way of mounting and connecting hard d rives...and it works. Very quiet fans.
Comment:
This case is almost perfect as it is.

Cons: Wrong size screws for attaching drives. They fit very loosely, unlike the screws for the Antec P180 (which I also own).

Pros: Lots of space for drives, designed well for heat-sink attachment, plenty of cooling options.
Comment:
Case was fine, but I was not satisfied with Antec support. They sent me a replacement kit labeled P280 (despite the fact that I had given them the exact length of the proper screws), then told me that it was working as designed. If I knew that would be their response, I wouldn't have bothered.Anybody want two sets of wrong-sized screws?

Cons: None

Pros: Quiet, plenty of room for even the biggest of mother boards along with plenty of 3.5" bays.
Comment:
I bought this case to house my HTPC build.I wanted a quiet case.. for obvious reasons.. when you are watching a movie and don't have your surround sound on.. you still want to hear the movie and not the sound of fans.. this does the job.The three included fans are quiet and I even added two more noctua 120mm fans still quite and there is still room for two more fans.Space is generous with the ability to add up to six 3.5 HDD's or six ssd's plus it has two dedicated slots for ssd's plus space for you 5.25" drives.Design is perfect for the understated look. It may be big.. but it's not goddy looking. When the system is on.. the 2 little blue LED lights on the front are barely noticeable and the front panel door that hides the DVD/BLU RAY compartments is the perfect touch.I would recommend this case to anyone not looking for all the flash most gaming machines have but still offers the room for all the mother boards and graphic cards out today.If you are looking for a bit of flash they do offer this same case with a side panel window.

Cons: -Takes up a lot of space-no option for 140mm fan -side panels sorta flimsy-stock fans are loud

Pros: -Big enough for anything-cable management-simple design-dust filters
Comment:
While I am quite happy with the case and the boxing day deal of 79.99 got me to finally build my new gaming comp, the case is really big. It may hold everything, but it takes up a large part of my desk and the fact that the 3 stock fans are quite loud even when set to low. Cable management and space is quite nice, but just make sure your psu cables are long enough to take advantage of this. My cheap antec 650w cant route through the back and plug in so that was a bummer. Fan filters were a nice last touch, but I would recommend buying new fans if you want to have a silent case.

Cons: Hard drive screws too longBack of case is perforated

Pros: Steel Lots of room for cablesGood airflow
Comment:
Bought this case to replace my aging P182.The airflow is much better, the door doesn't restrict airflow like the P182 did and the air filter is larger plus easy to remove and clean. There's lots of room for running cables with tie down spots everywhere. The included TwoCool fans are actually decent sounding running on low speed. Because of all the ventilation holes in the rear I swapped the fans for Scythe Slipstreams, 500rpm for the exhaust and 1200 rpm for the front intake to help balance the case pressure and keep dust out. I'm not a fan of the plastic drive trays, metal would be preferable here. Also the hard drive mounting screws are about 2~3mm too long for my WD hard drives. I had to steal the screws from my P182 which have the correct length to seat against the silicone grommets. A couple of 12mm diameter washers would also work to take up the extra length.

Cons: -Negative air pressure-The drive cage plastic isn't as sturdy as steel ones from Fractal

Pros: -Build Quality-Simple Elegant design-Cooling
Comment:
I've been very happy with this case so far. Lots of space for fans, includes 3 exhaust fans. This leads to my complaint, there's a great front filter; however, the negative air pressure in the case leads to dust getting in from every vent, even the non-filtered ones. The other complaint is that the hard drive mounts are plastic and not as durable as the steel design from Fractal. Overall, great case, not the quietest case out there, but does a good job to prevent vibration noise, and cooling is great as long as you think about fan speed and placement.

I bought this to replace an aging Antec Sonata II. Some of the features I really like include:Quiet - this case is very quiet, much quieter than the case it replaced. It just makes computing that much more enjoyable.Great looks.Well made.Good cable management, it's a treat to be able to route cables out of site, and dress those that are visible.Plenty of circulation with the three included fans.Easy access to power and reset switches.A fabulous deal at the sale price of $70.

Cons: don't have a window, however the windowed version is on the 2013 product list so :D

Pros: Perfect silent case ;)Front audio with great insulating (no interference and not wanted sounds coming trough headphones)
Comment:
I bought this case from another retailler as the price was better at that time, but i can say, this case is simply awesome, great silent operation, easy to clean the filters, no trouble getting my rig in and the front audio port is simply awesome, great shielding as i use Siberia V2 for gaming and HD555 for music/films and my previous case was doing some interference noise form front ports and this one doesn't, so just a perfect product Could come with a window but it's on the Antec to do list so ;)

Pros: Sleek DesignLight WeightSpot for H100/H100i
Comment:
Just got this case today and started to install all my components into it. This case has tonnes of room to store cables in behind the service panel. When both panels are removed the case weighs almost nothing and its so easy to turn and move when installing the Mobo and PSU. Lots of room behind the folding door for HDD fans, and good clearance.For $90 Totally worth it.

This case is amazing. I have been a long time user of Antec cases, and this one doesnt disappoint. The added fans are a must for high end gaming parts, and its very quiet even with all the fans on high. I love the fan adjustments on the back. The harddrive bays are well designed, with rubber gromets for reduced vibration. I have used 3 of these cases now and I will keep using them. At a sale price of 90 bucks its a steal in my opinion.

I bought this as an upgrade to the p182 and I am extremely pleased with it. The cable management is extremely easy and incredibly tidy. The case is incredibly spacious. I never felt like it was a challenge getting anything to fit. The PSU intake from the bottom is a great idea and the filters are making sure my case stays dust free. If you are looking for a sleek, quiet, high performance case, this is the one to get. You get every penny you pay for.

Cons: Rear fan speed controls difficult to access.

Pros: Quiet case, easy to remove fan filters, bottom psu filter removes from the side, front usb2 and 3 ports. Door opens all the way around the side of the case. Good provisions for wire routing and securing.
Comment:
One of the cleanest installations I have ever had, things have come a long way since my last case. Sound damping is really good. Fan power distribution board a nice touch, keeps rear chassis fan wiring clean. Speed switches are a little tough to reach and actuate on the back of the case, but that's about all I can say bad about it.

Cons: The blue LEDs for Hard Drive and Power indicators are irritating, I unplugged the Power LED and wish the Drive LED was another colour. Watch out for the cable length on your Power Supply, I had to run the cables across the front of the board to get to the Aux Fan block and the CPU Aux block with a Seasonic S12II.

Pros: Great looking case and front door swings right around to the side if necessary. Very quiet, more drive bays than a motherboard will ever have connectors for.

Cons: -no standoff holes for xl-atx mb bottom row of screws-not much space above motherboard-no easy open sides (like corsair 800D)-cheap plastic thumbscrews

Pros: -aesthetics-solid construction-size (fit's an xl-atx mb in a case that fits under my desk!)-easy to work in-inexpensive-good airflow-extremely quiet-large space behind motherboard for cables-easy to remove fan filters
Comment:
I am very pleased with this case so far. Extremely easy to build in with the wide open concept. I had a Corsair 800D and even though it is massive it would not fit my Big Bang II motherboard. Nicely fits in the Antec although there is no spot to screw in the bottom row of the motherboard standoffs. With the same gear in the two cases the Antec is far quieter and the thermals are equivalent so far. It even had room to mount the Corsair H100 water cooler. I moved the two original fans from up top to the front of the case in front of the drive cage. Only problem is I was unable to plug in the fan controller power as the H100 blocked access but I would rather have them on the motherboard anyway. Also I was unable to use the 12 pin access hole top right of motherboard as the cable would not fit through with the H100 in place.Overall an excellent product for a steal of a price ($90 price matched) thanks NCIX:)

Cons: Very big (if you have limited space) Minimalist design (if you like flashy)

Pros: Lots of space, rather quiet, sufficient cooling, good looking.
Comment:
For me, this is the perfect case. It is very large and can easily fit multiple Video cards and whatever else you need. It is very easy to work with and includes USB 3.0 and 2.5 mounts (so SSDs don't need a mounting bracket).Personally, I love the minimalist design (I've nicknamed it "the fridge") but some may wish for more lights and whizzles. Also, the case is very large compared to a standard case, so make sure you have enough room. This review was modfied by poster @ 09-08-12 04:17 PM

Cons: power/reset buttons at the top

Pros: Quiet, light, lots of room, nice cable management, easy access drive bays, screwless ssd bays, and thumb screw and rear slots.
Comment:
Was surprised at how the quiet the case was with all the fans I have running (5x120mm case fans all running on high, 2x100mm gpu fans, 1x120mm cpu fan, 1x120mm psu fan) and am thinking of putting one more where it allows two internal fans. I also like how there are 2 screwless ssd bays and thumb screw rear slots, makes things a lot easier. Good air flow too with the cable management system compared to my old P180.However, I don't like the power/reset switch at the top because like i did on my P180 i put my headphones and other junk on it :(Would definitely recommend this case.
