This review is from: Antec Performance One Series P193 V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: This case is the best computer case I've ever owned. It's very quiet, all the stock fans have separate control switches for speed which you can change to match your needs for airflow/quietness. The case itself is very heavy which is a pro because weight dampens vibration (noise) along with the double insulated side covers and soft rubber feet, this thing is nearly silent with the fans on low. I also enjoy that all air inlets are filtered (including the big 200mm fan on the side). As far as light goes, some people prefer a lot of blinking lights and windows with illuminated components. If that describes you you should go with the Antec twelve-hundred. I however use this thing in a room with a projector and light pollution can become a problem, but not with this case. The front door blocks all light from the drive LEDs and slightly masks the HDD activity indicators. The only light that really shows is the power LED which is very small. There is a lot to love about this case.
Cons: The 120mm Tri-Cool fans are (or were) a bi*** to find when I bought this thing 2 years ago. I had to send it out to Antec to get a replacement. They were very helpful and they replaced it for free with no hassle since it was still under warranty. This may not be a problem any longer since these cases have been out a while.READ FULL REVIEW
