1 out of 5 eggsPoor power supply

Pros: Pretty to look at. Nice USB ports on the front.

Cons: Power supply is failing after less than 2 years and is not a standard size. Not worth the trouble. Also the 3.5" bay only accepts bottom mount screws. Cannot mount an icy dock 3.5" SATA mobile rack in the case.

Other Thoughts: Antec power supplies seem to have a very high failure rate and I used to buy alot of Antec cases. This one is my last. Planning to replace the entire case with something less expensive that uses standard sizes.

5 out of 5 eggsmy favorite slim case

Pros: Nice glossy finish
Power supply has more power

Cons: More expensive than other cases

Those applies to all slim cases:
I don't know why all those cases have space for floppy drive
If someone has only one SSD drive, lot of space is wasted

Other Thoughts: I tried about 5 slim cases i choose this one because it looks better than other and power supply has more power.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Small Form Factor Case

Pros: I chose this case for a family friend who was used to PC's of this size. It has a very nice aesthetic, the construction seems very solid and the exterior has a nice shiny finish (a bit of a finger print magnet but oh well). It comes with an integrated 350 watt psu which was great for building a machine on a budget. Also, the removable front drive caddy is very handy and easy to use. I was able to mount a 2.5 inch SSD perfectly in the provided screw holes.

Cons: Having said that, there was one issue which others have spoken about already and that is the cutout for the optical drive. For some reason Antec made the cutout in the front bezel slightly too big so the drive doesn't actually sit flush with the front of the case. This causes some of the blue light from the power LED to shine through. You can actually see inside the case but only slightly. For being such a nice case having this one glaring issue is kind of maddening to someone like me who has built many PC's, but at the end of the day it wasn't a big deal to the person who ended up using this PC. Minus 1 egg for the optical drive cutout issue.

Other Thoughts: For getting a sleek, aesthetically pleasing case with good build quality plus a power supply, this is a great deal. If I get this case again for someone else I will probably just leave out the optical drive.

5 out of 5 eggsaddressing other reviews

Pros: supplemental review

Cons: wish front panel was black

Other Thoughts: After reading some reviews I noticed the following comparison saying that this is the same as the Rosewill R379-M. It is not. The biggest difference is this one has a 80+ efficiency 350 watt max power supply and the Rosewill has a standard 300 watt power supply. A high efficiency Antec power supply is going to last longer then a generic power supply. Mine is going on 5 years now no hiccups and voltages still perfect.- it also runs cooler than a standard power supply since its high efficiency. In this form factor if you want longevity and you value your components, it's worth the extra $$ for the better power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC case

Pros: fairly cheap, easy to work on, very good power supply

Cons: would be nice if it came in all black

Other Thoughts: I bought this a few years ago, and recently decided to update it with a more current MB and processor. I went with an A8-6600K. I have an SSD 240 GB in this 8GB of RAM and it totally rocks and is almost completely silent. I saw people complain that no USB 2.0 on the front- who cares? I attach the external drives on the back anyway. The front I may transfer an occasional file off of a usb drive, but 2.0 is fine for that. The power supply is plenty, because with this APU I don't need a videocard. I have used this non stop with a e4500 processor since 2009, and it still works great with the new processor. I use windows mediacenter and have the HD homerun network 3 cable tuner. I use an external USB 3.0 2 Tb drive for the DVR storage. So easy to install stuff. I also have a blu-ray drive installed. This case by far is the best bang for the buck, dependable and perfect sizing.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent! but you may need...

Pros: Easy to work with, plenty of room inside, no sharp edges. See "Other Thoughts" below - you may need an adapter.

Cons: Could use addt'l fan... you might be able to rig one onto the top cover if you're using a stock cpu cooler - there is enough clearance for a 120mm but the grate will be somewhat restrictive. Also, lacks a vent on GPU side of the case.

Other Thoughts: You may need one of these: Link Depot Model POW-ADT-4P8 4-pin to 8-pin Adapter Cable N82E16812189527 as the power supply does not come with the 8-pin motherboard connector, only the 4-pin.

4 out of 5 eggsStill going with no issues

Pros: Compact case that is surprisingly flexible.

Cons: Power supply capacity is a limitation on overhaul.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case almost 4 years ago when I was building a compact home office PC. I wanted something small and sturdy because I move a lot... and it has held up very well! In fact, I just gutted the original build and put in a new lower-end i5. The only hitch is that the PSU in my version has just 2 SATA connectors. That might have changed, but beware. The fan was a little noisy at first, but it either quieted down or I acclimated. Might be too distracting for a HTPC.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Thought that I would update my previous review.

Cons: Alot
(see my previous review)

Other Thoughts: So since newegg wouldnt swap cases for something else I had to forge ahead and use these for a customer's build. I did find out why as soon as you put the harddrive in it will not close all the way. I originally thought it was hitting the front panel usb 3.0 ports. I thought that because these were just recently outfitted with usb 3 instead of usb 2.0. I figured that they just swapped out connectors without testing the fit. I thought that might be why there are ome good reviews here on newegg. I was dry fitting the hard drive and bent back the mounts when I noticed that on the side of the hard drive there were scratches right in the middle and that the perforations were different there vs the rest on that side. I looked closer and noticed that that the screw holding the front face on is made to fit through the perforation. which is just bad design. because it will hit the harddrive. So I unscrewed it and used nippers to cut the plastic way until the cage would fit. I still had to slot the holes and move the dvd drive up a few mm so it would sit flusth with the front. and drill mounting holes so the card reader would fit. Overall I would expect this from a 30 dollar case not a 100 case. Which is why I bought the 100 case. I contacted Antec by phone to be told that I need to sign up on the internet first an create a trouble tickit. 3 business days later i recieved a message back. He wanted to stating he needed a copy of my reciept. I sent a screenshot back and told him of the design flaw and due to the slow responce I was forced to modify the case and void the warrenty. 3 days later I recieved a responce that he was happy i solved the problem and that he didnt know how i was trying to mount the drive but it was obviously wrong. You can only mount the thing one way to make the holes line up. Anyway hope everything lasts now that the warranty is null and void.

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute junk

Pros: None

Cons: Wow where to begin. Oh I know new eggs replacement policy on this item is. Not refundable. So I can swap it out for the same pile of junk.

1. Screw holes for DVD drive rant aligned properly so the DVD drive sits back about an 1/8th of an inch. So a big ol gap all the way around.
2. If you install a 3.5inch drive the case won't close properly major flaw. (I wonder if they actually put a system in this thing for quality control.
3. No side holes to mount anything all bottom mount. So can't install a card reader. (One of the only reasons I bought this case external 3.5 bay.

Just sucks I have a customer that ordered two builds I decided to use these cases and am now out 250 bucks and will have to order two different cases in. Negating any profit at all and actually costing me money.

Antec should be ashamed of themselves.
