1 out of 5 eggsIts the button

Pros: it's your average case.

Cons: I have bought hundreds of Antec case over the years and most of all them the power button breaks. The comments here about the button is correct, cheap plastic.

Other Thoughts: After years of buying Antec products I am changing to another manufacturer. The quality control has gone down as well as customer support, also had a problem getting a rebate, ignored emails, a women from their office even hung up the phone on me when I was trying to get it resolved.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor Power Button Design

Pros: A sturdy case. Lots of room for hard & DVD/CD drives. I like the hard drive mounting. 380 watt power supply good enough for most builds. The flat front is better than the earlier models of the NSK cases, when trying to plug in USB devices. Front USB 3.0.

Cons: The power button has a design flaw. [I have complained to Antec, but never heard anything back.] Have used hundreds of the NSK cases, but quit getting them because of the power button issues. In several cases the power button did NOT work right out of the box, which is frustrating to build a system then unable turn it on.

Other Thoughts: I get around the power button problem, I would unplug the reset button cable and plug the power cable to it.

3 out of 5 eggsThey Used to Make Them Better

Pros: Rubber grommets for hard drive bays.
Nice layout, plenty of space
Good Power Supply
Professional Look

Cons: The front panel used to be painted and had a nice look and feel. Now it appears to be straight unpainted black plastic. I know it sounds silly, but this makes the case look and feel cheaper.
Received slightly damage. Although it didn't appear to have any real cosmetic or function effect, on inspection one can see these problems. The front panel is loose at the top and can be pulled out. It was also cracked where it meets the chasis. The panels had a couple points where they were bent, and had to be bent back to regain full functionality. I wouldn't have docked points for this if this was incurred during shipping, but it wasn't. No damage to the box, clearly was packaged this way.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if Antec is outsourcing for the manufacturer of this case now, but whatever the case, the quality appears to be lower than what it used to be 3+ years ago. I have purchased 4 of these cases over the years, and I am disappointed to see that the quality has gone down so much.

On a side note, I don't list this as a con because you will be lucky to find a case with anything much better, but the fans are not all that great. I swapped them out for some Fluid Dynamic fans by Arctic cooling, not the greatest fans out there, but they are at a great price.

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty Power Button Design

Pros: Quiet, light, but stout, strong case, decent power supply (better than entry-level) for most builds, lots of room in the case for air-flow and drives. No frills, but easy to work on. Rounded edges on everything (no sliced fingers). Nice large case fan to help reduce noise with variable speed adjustment.

Cons: Terrible power switch design. I've built nearly 100 machines with this case and in the past year several of them have had this failed power button issue. I only got warranty satisfaction out of Antec once and even that was like pulling teeth and took weeks. I ended up repairing the buttons myself by filling the conical cosmetic button back with the head of a large screw and hot glue and then hot gluing the switch arm back in place to the rear of the bezel, all the while eating the labor costs, of course.

Other Thoughts: This debacle made my company look less reputable. It's hard enough competing with the mass manufacturers, touting quality and longevity without having customers calling up saying they think their machine is dead. As such, and with the higher quality of other power supply manufacturers, my company is no longer dealing in Antec products. After nearly 15 years of doing business almost exclusively with Antec for cases and power supplies their lack of expedient warranty support turned me off. And while sourcing separate cases and power supplies is more expensive, the quality and design is better and warranties are hopefully better serviced.

4 out of 5 eggsSwitcher-Roo

Pros: The case has all rolled edges and is actually designed. I took the entire case apart which was easy to do. And I could see the true fit and finish. The front comes off with 6 flexible tabs and you can get to the power switch and put in a new one. You do not have to throw the case away. Antec will send you a new switch for free -- they did for me when I asked.

Metal is thick enough to see it is not a recycled beer can. Rubber grommets for the hard drives. 3 speed fans, 120 mm rear fan and 80mm front fan. My case was the older style so I could put an 80 mm on the side panel. Decent cooling for an normal/average computer build.

Cons: The system really wants a total SATA build as IDE cables are fussy trying to reach the upper bays for a DVD. The upper horizontal cross member (stiffener between the two sides) really needs more relief to pass the cables up to the top bays.
The 380 Watt Power supply has 2 rails (17/17 Amps) and works fine with a average non-gamer computer.

Other Thoughts: Overall a nice case. It is a little funky to take the top off and then then 2 sides. And you have to watch when you put the sides back on they go on properly.
I paid less than the 95 dollars I have seen listed. 95 dollars is too much money for this case in today's case choices.

5 out of 5 eggsTried and true-this case is around for the duration

Pros: I bought this two years ago, in 2010. The case fan is adjustable and very quiet, the ps fan is completely silent.
I just upgraded some components this week, and was pleased to see this same case is still available and going strong. Access and build quality are really impressive. This may be the last case I buy for a long time.

Never had any issues with the power supply. I have had two SATA HD drives and one SATA DVD drive installed. It's a pretty basic system with onboard video with a triple core AMD, so I don't hit the ps very hard, and it's worked great for two years.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I have an MSI 890GXM-G65 with an AMD triple-core AM3+ cpu (neither available any more). After upgrading to an SSD and relocating the case to the top of my desk, the stock AMD fan was way too LOUD! So I installed a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED CPU cooler. It's a huge CPU cooler, but fits perfectly in this case for size and airflow, almost like the two were designed to go together.

5 out of 5 eggsProfessional Case

Pros: Quality power supply, good air flow, sturdy metal, professional appearance, modest footprint. This makes a great case for machines in a professional settings. I've built five machines using this case. All are operating well.

Cons: I can't think of one.

1 out of 5 eggsSwitch Broken as Designed

Pros: I have used these cases for over two years for system builds building probably close to 100 systems. I like the design of these systems and they are one of the few systems that use 80PLUS power supplies.

Cons: The on/off button uses a plastic arm which can fracture and break, even with light and little use. It is NOT user replaceable so the entire case needs to be replaced.
My failure rate was probably close to 20% and damaged my reputation for building reliable systems. I just replaced one this weekend and I gave the customer a nice Lancool K56 case instead and an XFX 450W PSU 80PLUS PSU. I just couldn't bring myself to let the person down again and it cost out of my pocket but it was the right thing to do.

Other Thoughts: What can I say? A lovely product with a fatal design flaw that any five year old could see was a problem waiting to happen. A plastic arm for an on/off switch? Glued in and not replaceable?

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

I certainly apologize for this issue. Please email us at VIP@antec.com and one of our reps will get in touch with you promply to figure out a way to resolve the situation. Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsSilence

Pros: Nearly silent case for a good price. Power supply adequate for non gaming . Fits a very large CPU cooler

Cons: USB 3.0 on front not 2.0. would've been a plus if my MB had the internal conection for it. HD rack should be turned 90 for easier access.

Other Thoughts: Full ATX is tight but doable
