Pros: There's not much to say about this thing. It's a shelf and it does what it says.
+ The manufacturing quality appears to be top notch.
+ Arrived in a well packaged box with the nice triple thick corrugated exterior.
+ Came with 4 very sturdy looking screws and cage nuts.
+ Lined up perfectly in my rack and doesn't appear to have any bends or dents in the metal.
+ One of the better prices for products in this range.
Other Thoughts: I doubt I will ever get close to the 50 lb weight limit on this item. I'm using it to hold my home networking gear that isn't rack mountable. So far it's a modem, MyBook Live, and a router.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Patriot Supersonic Xpress 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PSF16GXPUSB
Pros: Solid body, meets my expectations for a USB 3.0 device
Cons: The only serious con with this item is the overall width of it There's a considerable amount of unnecessary plastic on the sides that makes it wide enough to block neighboring ports. Eventually I tore the thing apart so that I have just the blue piece so that I could use it without a hub on my laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Simple, sleek, glowing, and quiet. I bought this because two of my friends have the same case and I love it. If you're looking for a subtle design with high quality construction look no further!
The stock fans are excellent at keeping my system cool and they are extremely quiet while they do it. The look created by the LEDs is a nice touch of ambience to the otherwise blackout look.
Cons: Cable management! Much like everyone else on the Internet I too am not a fan of the way Antec expects you to run cables. I've seen pictures of people's rigs from 2-3 yrs ago with smaller boards and VGA cards that look great, but modern day components leave little room for all the cables you'll end up with.
And speaking of large graphics cards, I ended up mounting everything in the case before my card arrived, only to find that I had to move the hard drive down a bay because its cables were rubbing on the card's heat sink.
My final, and smallest complaint, is the control switches for the built-in fans. They're only about 4 inches long and there's no way to adjust the speeds without opening the side panels. I've not had to adjust them yet, but if I ever do it's going to take longer that I think it should.
Other Thoughts: This is one of, if not THE cheapest cases on Newegg (cost wise). The constructions is great, and it's got enough room to build a decent system. The design is minimalistic compared to some of the over-the-top, space age looking towers available and that was a huge selling point for me.
I've seen many people who take out the stock fans and install their own, or liquid cooling systems, and it requires little modding. That being said, the simplicity of the case means it's extremely easy to mod and I plan on making some changes in the future.
