1 out of 5 eggsMy 2nd case and STILL a bad PSU

Pros: 1) Size
2) Sturdy, feels like quality
3) Low power (when it actually turns on)

Cons: 1) Poor air flow
2) Power On LED way too dim. I have to either lift the thing up or crawl under it to see if it's turned on.
3) HD Activity LED hard to see unless you're directly in front of it.
4) Only turns on when it feels like it.

Other Thoughts: This was actually my second ISK300-65 case. The first case had wires that were too short, but the problem was with the PSU. It had a mind of its own and only turned on when it feels like it. After the power had been cut, like from shutting down, it didn't turn back on. It sometimes takes hours until it decides to play nice and turn on. I've tried unplugging the power cord from the case and from the wall outlet to no avail. The only way it actually turned on was to hold down the power button while I plugged in the power cable. Of course, then my motherboard refused to POST until I ripped the whole thing apart and ran the board with a standard sized Antec ATX PSU which has been working flawlessly for several days now. So back to what I said earlier, this is my 2nd case. This one has longer wires which is nice, but it has the same possessed PSU that only works when it feels like it. Judging by the reviews I'm not the only person with this problem either.

1 out of 5 eggsAntec won't respond

Pros: Would be a great case if it would power up.

Cons: DEAD.... Antec promised a replacement, but won't respond to any emails.

Other Thoughts: Antec quickly responded to a previous review and I thought, "Wow, these guys are 'OK'!...". So after a week of daily e-mails as per their request on this forum, I have had ZERO response. I can only assume that they have a policy of responding here to make other buyers think they care about issues and will work with paperweight buyers to resolve issues. So far the ONLY response I have gotten is their quick response on this page that they would replace my lemon.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Wayne,

We're sorry things have taken a while but please be assured that we have looked into this case and haven't forgotten about you. I believe our customer service supervisor has been in contact with you so I hope things go smoothly. Should you have any further concerns, please write us at VIP@antec.com. Thank you.

1 out of 5 eggsBELIEVE the reviews

Pros: Great size, Decent Quality, Nice Fan

Cons: BELIEVE what people say about the power supply..... I didn't, and I have a BRICK. The little thing WILL NOT come back on if there is a power failure, unless you remove the power connection from the MOTHERBOARD!!

Other Thoughts: I built this for one of our employees and she LOVES it when it is running... it runs 24-7. But if there is a need to turn it off or there is a power disruption, it is a paperweight. It is incredible to me that a manufacturer obviously has an issue but continues to sell defective products.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi WT,

I'm very sorry that you're having issues with this case and we'd be more than happy to assist you. Because you're not able to power back on your computer conventionally, we ask that you email us at VIP@antec.com and we'll troubleshoot your situation or discuss options for replacement. Thank you for your patience.

1 out of 5 eggsBad power supplies

Pros: solid case good ventilation

Cons: cheap power supplies.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 8 (eight) for our office. 4 of them have very touchy power supplies. Any type of power cycling with render them unusable for 2 or more hours. some days they wont turn on at all.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Drew,

I apologize for the issue you're having with this power supply. We'll try to diagnose the issue and rectify the situation for you. Please send us a message at VIP@Antec.com and we'll assist you promptly.

1 out of 5 eggsUnstable power supply

Pros: - Compact and solid build quality
- Good ventilation and speed control included for case fan.

Cons: - No option for 3.5 drives
- Front panel and power supply cable lengths are not long enough for ideal cable management.
- Power supply is very unstable. After building my system and installing the OS, I could not with any certainty perform a power cycle. If I shut down and attempt to boot the system, it simply will not power on. Resets are generally fine but on multiple occasions, doing a complete power cycle would require me to wait a couple of hours before the system would boot again. If this is what I am experiencing from this case in less than two days of using it, I can only expect it to be all downhill from here.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Because issues vary on a case by case basis, please contact us at VIP@Antec.com and one of our team members will be happy to assist you.

5 out of 5 eggsGood ITX case

Pros: -Build Quality
-Ventilation
-Power supply supplied

Cons: -Front door is a little quirky and cumbersome

Other Thoughts: Best case for an ITX computer. However, I would go the micro-atx route over doing this again.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks nice and clean, fairly easy to assemble, plenty of room for a mini-itx board, two 2.5" HDDs & a slim optical drive. Stand for holding the case on its side is a nice touch.

Cons: Assembly can be tricky, especially routing SATA cables from the motherboard to the drives on the drive caddy. No mounting holes for WiFi antennas, which is pretty much a must-have for cases this size. Stock fan can get kinda loud on the highest setting, but you'll probably never need to set it that high.

Other Thoughts: I have mine set up with an i3 (65W, stock cooler) and a third-party mini power supply (160W), and it is both cool and virtually silent even under full load. The only way I can tell if it's on is to check the (thankfully) dim power LED, it's so quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsGood and compact

Pros: Well thought for those motherboards with integrated CPUs.
Discrete blue (almost too discrete) status LED at the front.
Can use the included stand or under monitor, as you wish.

Cons: The I/O shield provided with Intel D525MW mobo did not fit perfectly with this case. However a bit of metal filing and I got it smoothly installed. I understand this can be a frustration for people not wanting to fiddle with components and tools.

Other Thoughts: Using this case to house my personal Apache Httpd/Subversion (running on Linux From Scratch SVN from late March 2011) mini server. Still running nicely after nearly 9 months uptime. Did not notice major difference on electricity bill. 65W PSU for the win.

4 out of 5 eggs-1 Egg for HDMI frustrations

Pros: Small, generally well-built, pretty

Cons: HDMI port of installed PCIe card is exceedingly difficult to get to, power LED almost non-existent

Other Thoughts: First time I bought this case it stopped working (PS failure) after about 2 weeks. I won't deduct an Egg because that kind of thing just happens. Was really frustrating nonetheless because I ended up paying $40 for shipping (case to me, back for RMA, new case to me). GRR.

Second case (so far) works fine.

Tiny complaint: The power LED is almost invisible, which makes it difficult to tell is the system is powered on when you're not using it.

Large complaint: I installed an nVidia GT 430 PCIe card and the design of the case wouldn't allow me to plug the HDMI cable into it. I had to take a razor blade and shave the plastic end of the cable right down to the metal to make it plug in properly. Not a deal-breaker for the case, but such an easily avoidable oversight in case design is annoying.

Small complaint: no case ventilation for the video card. The fan is (literally) about 1/8" from the side of the case. I'll have to drill holes in it - can't return it then, hope this case doe

5 out of 5 eggsNice little case

Pros: Size. Low, to no noise. Compact thoughtful layout.

Cons: No 3.5" drive; but you know that going into the purchase.

Other Thoughts: This is a great small case. The 65Watt power supply is enough for my Intel Atom D525 board which idles at 22 watts and only a few watts more under load. The top fan does all the necessary cooling on low, and is completely silent at that speed. That fan is the only one I used on my build and all temps are low.
