2 out of 5 eggsArrived damaged

Pros: Lots of Space - definitely a full ATX case, or real close and had no problem fitting in a GTX 970.
Lots of fan slots
easy to mount hard drives and disk drives.

Cons: My power supply
Case was incredibly damaged, and not from shipping. It had a passed QC sticker on it, but had a huge dent on the bottom of the case and the front face plate christmas trees were broken. I "fixed" it with gluing the christmas tree fasteners back on the front plate, but they broke after placing the front face plate back on.

Other Thoughts: Only getting 2 eggs because case was still functional, but damaged when I received it. I was unwilling to wait a week or two for an RMA as I'm stubborn like that, but I doubt I'll recommend this or buy again.

4 out of 5 eggsA bit disappointed.

Pros: -Roomy
-Good air flow

Cons: -Not very silent.

Other Thoughts: Silence was the most important aspect in buying my case, and this under-performed in that regard. However, the air flow is fantastic, I put the top fans into the front for positive air pressure. I needed to turn the fans on low to get them quiet, and I still get some "hum."

If quiet FANS were what makes a "quiet case", I'd have purchased something like an S340 with Cougar Vortex fans.

All in all I *am* satisfied with the case. The space is quiet luxurious, great cable management space, the removable drive trays are strong with silicone/rubber grommets, etc. It just didn't fit the bill in regards to "quiet", which was important for me.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case

Pros: Huge case with plenty of room. I was able to install a Corsair H100i with no problem and could still use all RAM slots and PCIe slots without any difficulty if I need to.

Cons: It's size can be a bit much for cable management. Trying to route cables can leave them just a little shorter then the need to be. This meant that some of my cables couldn't use the cable holes and still reach where I needed them to go. Cable extensions could fix this but I didn't want to have to wait for them to get in.

Also, be careful with the side panels! When i was recently working on installing a new cooling system, my dog (60lb husky) decided to lay on the panel when I wasn't paying attention and the panel is now slightly warped.

5 out of 5 eggsFar and away the best case I've ever owned

Pros: * HUGE, I'll never need to expand again!
* Comes with more screws of more types than you'll ever possibly need
* Comes with cable ties for cable management
* Internal passthroughs for cable management make all the difference
* Sturdy construction
* Tons and tons of toolless screws that work excellently

Cons: * The front door swings open if you tilt the case forward. It could latch harder.

Other Thoughts: If you have room for this case, buy it. You will never regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Cat Friendly

Pros: Awesome case. Great for a clean setup of cables and plenty of spaced compared to the P-180 Predecessor.

Cons: While a great case, it is not cat friendly. As all cat owners know, cats love to walk around or sleep on top of their case. The power button located on the top seems to be cat paw sized and unless you cover it with an object, your cat WILL power off your computer in the middle of some work, or worse yet, a raid. It loses an egg for all cat owners. otherwise, 5/5.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent looking case; extremely quiet. Much lighter than previous Antec cases like the P180. Great clean looking case. Antec Support was very responsive and agreed to ship a new front panel.

Cons: Case came with the front snapped off.

Other Thoughts: 1-2 weeks for the panel to be shipped from Antec is a little frustrating, but since this case was bought for internal use and not for resale, it's not a deal breaker.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case, great value

Pros: Case dimensions permit installation of most any video card(s) or CPU cooler. HD/SSD easy in/out. Cable routing options very good. Ease of access for PC building is better than most cases. Quiet enclosure with stock fans, still pretty quiet with WC, although pump is noisier than most fans at normal speed.

I was concerned about the 3x120mm stock fans providing adequate cooling. With an added 240mm WC taking up the two top fan positions I relocated the 2 top 120s to front of drive cage, so I now have excess cooling capacity.

Stock Antec fans are pretty decent. I have a 7-year-old Antec 900 that's run 24/7, fans set on low or medium speed, all four stock fans still functioning without any signs of quitting.

Cons: The side doors are large and have a slight warp/twist , causing them to spring right off the sides when you remove the second thumbscrew. Would prefer them to stay in place until I got hands on to lift out of way.

Bottom air intake for PSU precludes placement of the P280 directly on carpeted floor. Must use a piece of wooden board or something rigid to raise off of carpet. I went nuts and built a custom dolly with vent and casters sourced from local hardware store for ~25 bux. Better solution would be for Antec to include elevating casters in future P280 design revision, or even taller feet.

Other Thoughts: This is nice, quiet, adult-styled case. Received rebate in less than 4 weeks, no hassles, final cost <80 bux. An excellent value.

This is my second Antec case, and I like this one much better than the old 900 without the blue LEDs. The P280 is superior to the 9/12 series in terms of space/cable routing and possibly their equal cooling-wise if fans are added. P280 has front and bottom easily removable filters which may reduce cleaning frequency and cost of ownership in terms of quantity of canned air required to keep this box clean.
