Solid Case 4/14/2017 1:14:43 PM

Pros: -Plenty of room for all components. Was much bigger then I thought it was going to be. Super is not just for marketing scheme.
-tool less design, exceptions are of course power supply, fans, and motherboard.
-Easy removable fan filters
-Very easy cable management
-Very good Air flow.

Cons: One of the plastic heads on the case cover screws was broken into many pieces. Not that big of a deal but I did replace them all with metal thumb screws.

Overall Review: Would buy again, and recommend this case to others.
add some more case cover screws

1/ 5

Pros: None

Cons: - I had this case for little under one (1) year, and the USB 2.0 cables that were attached to the front hub turned on fire! Thank G*d (Apparently this word can't be said here? LOL) I was at home right in front of it, and that I wasn't sleep or away from home!

- Antec rep Peter Teo attempted to resolve this issue by sending me THREE (3) additional usb hubs in the mail. In other words, when these inevitably turn on fire I can replace them again, yay! Well, that's as long as myself or others don't die in a house fire, that is a very reasonable solution! I wrote him weeks ago and asked him if these were of the same quality that was originally made for this case, and he never even responded! Which brings me to:

- Terrible customer service

- Terrible warranty policy

Overall Review: If you want a computer case that will turn on fire in under a year, and potentially kill you and your family in a house fire - shop Antec!

Don't worry, if you make it out alive they will be sure to send you a couple USB hubs of shady quality for your troubles.

Antec, u really need to enhance quality control !!! 4/19/2016 5:26:16 PM

Pros: It is a super Mid tower so have enough room for
- Cable Management
- Many Drive Bays
Very thick side panel compare with my Corsair 780T
Dedicated slots for two SSDs
Cheap buying when shell shocker deal 59.99+14.99(shipping)-$20usd(MIR)

Cons: A case failure in QC:
- one of the top fans failed when its FIRST start up (I have the video in my phone)
- the plastic ring on one of the side panel screws completely broken into pieces when I use my fingers to tighten it on (I can provide photos)
Antec, you must be kidding me ...

Overall Review: Very disappointed, not recommend for anyone else!
I just need a case without transparent side panel for my home server and came cross this deal, appreciate Newegg's shipping speed.
Be subverted my strong impression of Antec "solid, reliable", you really need to enhance your quality control!

Dent on top of case 12/30/2015 11:11:01 AM

Pros: - Nice looking functional case.

Cons: - Damaged
- A little larger than expected

Overall Review: Much like another reviewer mentioned my case also had a significant dent on the top. The shipping box was in good condition.
This would seem to imply a failure in QA, or that my case was an open box.

Great Case 12/29/2015 1:26:26 PM

Pros: Bought this a year ago so this is after some using. It's big, has room enough for everything, the three included fans on LOW setting are quiet, it fits the CM Hyper 212 EVO with room to spare, good cable management.

Cons: No cons

Overall Review: After 6-7 months the status led on the front stopped working. One email was enough for a replacement to be sent, no questions asked.

Adequate Case, Overpriced 9/29/2015 7:10:33 AM

Pros: Large grommets and backside opening for cable routing.
Uniform coloring (all black).
Easily accessible/removable filters for cleaning.
Dedicated slots for two SSDs
Good space for HDDs
USB 3.0 ports
Strong magnet to hold the front cover

Cons: Somewhat cheap construction. Coming from the P182 this case felt and is definitely cheaper in design and construction than what Antec used to make.

Case feet are cheaply made and can easily fall off or break. Front door feels cheap.

Power and reset buttons are oddly placed on top away from front panel.

Drive cage is not removable.

120mm fans instead of 140 (given the current market of cases and this price, it's a valid gripe).

Sound dampening compared to the Antec P180 series is horrible, but those cases were built like tanks.

Recently, my audio jacks broke (I was plugging in a pair of headphones and they just fell into the case).

Overall Review: I bought this case in 2012, iirc. At the time it was a pretty good case, but it has not aged well at all compared to other offerings out there. Other brands have popped up and become popular such as NZXT and Fractal that offer a **much** better value at lower price points. Unless you can buy this case for cheaper than a similar Fractal, NZXT, CM, etc (and unless you're enamored with the design), I'd recommend against getting this case.

Dented 5/5/2015 11:43:15 AM

Pros: Solid case; huge mid and metal in all the necessary places. Perfect for users without the need to look at their computer's insides.
Metal is thick and heavy.
This is a great looking case; the more I look at it the better it looks.

Cons: Received with small dent on top; I am not concerned with it, but it would freak out users who want perfection. It is small, perhaps 3mm in size and on the edge. Painted so maybe it happened before production? It was packaged very well so it appears to be a QC problem. I don't want the hassle of dealing with returning, but something to keep in mind next time. I like Antec, and if this wasn't a needed computer build I would return and ask Antec to replace.
