Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Great Case, no 3.5" Adapter 02/16/2011

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Great Quality. Not funky looking, so I can use it for professional-looking, quality builds for non-gamers. Antec fans are always quiet and cool on the low setting.
Large enough to fit most new graphics cards, but smaller than my 900 (small enough so that people who are used to having a Dell or whatever don't freak out too badly when they see the size of it).

Cons: No 3.5" adapter for an external panel means ordering it separately from antec for another 1/4 the cost of the entire case. Or if you find this out when it arrives, like I did, and have to have it done by tomorrow, you spend hours cutting and bending the mesh panel so it looks professional, and using extra brackets from your other cases. Come on Antec, just include the 3.5" to 5.25" adapter. It will end up costing you more if you aggravate your customers.

Other Thoughts: If you are like me and don't like all the ugly, tacky, gaudy gamer cases that are out there, but you don't want cheap garbage, buy this case. As long as you don't need a 3.5" front slot (plan on spending another 25% if you do).

5 out of 5 eggs Great Quality and Value, no power cable 07/18/2010

This review is from: Antec NeoECO C NeoECO 520C 520W ATX12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Quiet, 80-plus efficiency, looks good (dark grey, sleeved cables), no obnoxious childish lights, single 12V rail (makes it able to power system with quad core, multi-gpu, 8GB ram, multi-hd, lights, fans, etc), Antec quality, great price on sale or in a combo deal or both.

Cons: No power cable. It is stated in the product page, so no eggs off, but still, everybody needs a power cable, and it is a small inconvenience to have to look for and buy a power cable separately. Come on, it probably costs like 10 cents to make one and throw it in. Don't start being cheap now, Antec, and try to tell us it's to help the environment. Try for 90 plus efficiency instead, and reduce manufacturing waste and inefficiencies.

4 out of 5 eggs No 3.5 to 5.25 bay adapter 07/18/2010

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good quality construction. Looks good - elegant, modern, simple, professional (no lights or silly kid stuff). Fans are very very quiet on low, and flow enough air to leave them on low. There is a place to tuck extra cables behind the hard drive area and holes to floor mount an SSD with no bracket. Plenty of screws, including thumb screws for hard drives.

Cons: Does not include a 3.5" to 5.25" bay adapter. It is sold separately, but not by newegg at this time. So if you have any kind of front panel (most of which are 3.5"), you will have to fork out about 1/3 of the cost of the whole case to get the little adapter. Would it have been too much to ask of Antec to just cut a 3.5" hole in one of the dummy panels for us and throw in a cheap bracket?

Other Thoughts: I used a 3.5" to 5.25" hard drive mounting bracket to mount my 3.5" USB/firewire front panel, and cut a hole in one of the dummy panels with a dremel. If you take the dummy panel apart and cut the plastic inner part first (as straight as you can), and then cut an X in the outer mesh looking part and bend the mesh inward (after you put them back together), you can make a professional looking, cheap alternative to buying the adapter, at the cost of some time and effort.
