4 out of 5 eggsWrong size

Pros: Seems like a perfectly good case to work with. Low hassle, good price, etc.

Cons: Not large enough to fit long video card (e.g. GTX275 OC from MSI), bumps into hard drive cage. Also, the PSU only had 1 PCI-E power run. All in all, the case is fine, but the case and PSU here was incorrect for my build.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple case, no cut fingers.

Pros: Inside it's Antec with it's rolled edges that make it a joy to work in. Everything is where it should be so cable management is easy for the simple systems this case is meant to hold.
The PSU and case fan are SUPER quiet. I had to put my hand over the back a couple times to check that they were actually on.

Cons: I can't think of any. It's a case meant for a simple system so if your are looking for something to put an elite gaming system in don't buy this one.
The same goes for the PSU. It's awesome for a basic setup, but don't expect to run quad crossfire or anything like that.

Other Thoughts: Newegg did it again! SUPER FAST shipping! I placed the order and got it 2 days later using only their standard shipping.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes the job

Pros: Extremely sturdy, built like a tank with the KISS principal. (Keep it simple stupid). Has everything you need with nothing you don't. Looks great for a modern workstation.

Cons: I installed two different brands of optical drives, both were a lighter shade of black. Also there was a noticeable gap between the optical drives' and card reader's bezel, which took careful installation to even out-- but it was still noticeable.

Other Thoughts: Great looking simple case for the money. I'd rather spend the extra cash on sturdiness and a decent power supply than a case with extra bling that won't hold up in shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Great Look. Nice & Clean. I added a fan in the front which really gets air moving through the case. I like the design of the sides and top. You remove two screws and pull off the top. Then the two sides come off easily with no additional screws. Much nice than screws for each side like I usually deal with.

Cons: A little small inside when routing wires, but not a big con really.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Excellent case quality. One of the few very professional cases that I use for builds for clients. Strong, cool, and quiet. Vibration reducers drive mounts. Variable speed 120mm fan. Great quality and efficient power supply. This PSU is completely adequate for dual and quad core CPUs. Quiet and stable. I have run it with quad cores with GPU's in the 9600GT - GTS250 range. Should be fine for that. Check out this site for realistic PSU requirements: http://www.antec.outervision.com

Cons: The front port USBs are very rough. Felt like some of the paint got in them or something. The front panel was a bit loose (could slide up and down 1/8" or so) on the two that I got, not sure if that is a manufacturing change or what. Not a big deal though. Pricier on Newegg.com than other places (when not discounted). Front port 80mm fan not included. You will lose at least one drive bay when using cards as long as a 8800GTS or GTS250. Longer cards like the GTS 260 will simply not fit.

Other Thoughts: Comparisons to the NSK 4480 (I). They have added front port audio connections, removed the CPU "tunnel" that was on the case side (i found it annoying anyway), the front panel was a rough black paint finish. Bezel behind remains silver... Good look. The rest is identical to previous version.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Basic Case

Pros: Relatively small and fits a full ATX board

Cons: A bit pricey for a basic case.

Other Thoughts: I needed a case that would fit in a small cabinet, but fits a full ATX board. This worked fine. For the price, I think the case should offer more, maybe front panel 1394 or ESATA.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff!

Pros: This is a REALLY nice case, very nice looking, suitable for home or office environments, and solidly constructed with easy open top and side panels. The front panel is made of a sturdy, pliable plastic, unlike the brittle stuff used in most cases in this price range, and the power and reset buttons feel solid, with nice tight springs and a sturdy, brushed metal look. The interior of the case is spacious and without sharp edges, with a removable 3 1/2 inch drive caddy with rubber grommets for noise dampening, a 120mm fan in the rear for quiet operation, and an optional 80mm fan in the front. It comes equipt with a decent 380 watt PSU, but with only 17 amps on the +12v rail, it's probably not suited for hardcore gaming, more than adequate for a casual gaming rig, though -- the case is also sold without a PSU, so gamers are still in luck :)

Cons: The 5 1/4" drive caddy sits a little too close to the mainboard (less than 1/8" between them), so installation was a bit hairy -- I kept banging the mobo against the chassis whilst mapping out the offsets. This isn't a huge issue, but it stuck out in my mind as I was putting the thing together. I'd also like to see a version with only 2 5 1/4" drive bays -- I know a lot of people like to run two CD/DVD drives along with something like an i-panel or card reader, but knocking two inches off the height would've been nice.

Other Thoughts: I love this case and would buy another if I had half a reason to :)

5 out of 5 eggsGood quality

Pros: I like how easy to open the case is - undo 2 thumbscrews in the back, slide off the top, then the sides slide out too. It's secure if you need it to be, and still easy to take apart. The case and power supply have plenty of space and connectors for hard drives and other accessories, and the hard drive bays all have rubber gromets on the screw holes to help reduce vibration.

Cons: One little nit - one of the screws for the second hard drive bay is kind of difficult to get in. It's kind of a drag because all of the other screws are easily accessible. You also have to be a little careful when putting the sides back on to make sure that everything slides into place right.

Other Thoughts: Note that the built-in fan has a manual 3-speed switch, but is not capable of being controlled by the system. The low setting has proven to be quiet and plenty of cooling for my needs, though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case & power supply

Pros: Great case design, simple, sturdy, functional and the fit & finish of all the parts is excellent. I like the storage area at the power supply, it makes it easy to tuck away extra power cables. It has great airflow with added side & front fans. It's just big enough for a full ATX board but there's no wasted space. Rolled edges on the sheet metal, I didn't get any cuts during assembly. Best packaging I've seen, it arrived in perfect condition. The plastic case front is sturdier than I'm used to, I've had it on & off many times with no problems. My MB, CPU, video card, 2 HD's and video capture card draw 120 watts 24/7 and I've not had any power issues.

Cons: It's no big deal but I would have preferred 90mm fan mounts for front & side. I can't complain too much, the 80mm fans I installed are keeping my Core2 E8400 CPU running 40-42c with the Intel stock cooler.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Antec 80+ power supplies for two years and haven't had any problems in PCs running 14hrs/day 5 days a week or the ones that are always on. This is my second build in an Antec case and they've been a welcome step up from the cheap cases I used to buy.

I'm impressed with the quality of Antec's packaging too since cheap cases usually arrive damaged. Antec uses thicker cardboard and just enough flexible foam inserts so the cases came with no holes in the outer box and no damage to the cases inside.

I think Antec has just the right balance of good quality and reasonable price. Considering that the 380w 80+ PS included with this case sells alone for fifty, this is a good deal.
