Conclusion: With everything being taken into consideration, I can’t give any awards to the Antec GX700 today as I feel there is room for improvement, but it isn’t far off from being excellent and for £59.99, you really can’t go wrong if you’re in the market for a budget enclosure.
Summary: The first impression of the Antec GX700 is awesome as its military green and black color scheme really strikes a cord. It also offers incredible value by clocking in at just above the 50 EUR/USD mark with a fan controller and three fans right out of the box.

Antec GX700 Case Review: Just What You Can Get For $59.99
22 June 2013
Conclusion: One sentence needs to really be repeated over and over again (just as it has been in the preceding review): the Antec GX700 is $59.99. Without that, it's tough to put this case into perspective. The core of the GX700 is pretty much all good news.
Summary: The Antec GX700 Rugged Gaming Case is a product gamers will love. It has a military theme and loaded with excellent features. They include two 140mm fans, one 120mm fan, more fans can be installed, dust filters, five 2.5" or 3.5" drive can be installed, 240mm radiator can be installed and much more.
Excerpt: If you've followed the market for computer chassis the past few years, you will perhaps have noticed that one of the big players remained pretty quiet in 2012. Antec, always a respected brand for its chassis and power supplies, appeared to take a breather last year.
Conclusion: No case design will ever be for everyone, and our gut tells us that the specific theme of the GX700 will probably deter more people than it attracts, but at least it's not just another plain black box.
