Unimpressed

Hood, Newegg
13 February 2013
  • Summary: I hope the power supply doesn't go out, I'll probably have to trash the whole box as I doubt there's a replacement available. I would not purchase again.
  • Pros: quiet nice looking
  • Cons: Overpriced. Case fan cable and power LED cable are too short to reach on my motherboard (GA-Z77N-WIFI). You'd expect better from a premium price product. IMO, the design is not very well thought out.

Not enough power

spentonbargains, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: My system worked for 1 week, then quit because the PSU is not powerful enough Fans quit working, then whole system quit working. also, cases with 120mm fans are quieter, but this one isn't terribly loud. Took the video card out, (which was only supposed to pull 35W) and the fans started again.

Nice case but not so good PSU

Vince, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: I like this case very much but unfortunately the PSU seems to be weak, my old Dell 120W PSU produces much better voltages than this 150W rating. The PSU produces slightly lower voltages almost across the 24-pins, especially the standby pin-9 VSB only comes up to 4.80v, which causes the motherboard...

Frustrating Cable Design

Michael C., Newegg
28 October 2010
  • Summary: If you suspect you'll have cable length issues, check out item N82E16812186072 (SYBA cable SY-CAB65008). This should give you just enough length to overcome the design flaw.
  • Pros: Small. 150w PSU was just right for the configuration I came up with. Case looks nice sitting in an entertainment center along side other A/V equipment.
  • Cons: Not terribly high quality. Case bends and flexes easily. The big deal breaker - the cable lengths are terrible. It seems like they just came up with random lengths of cable and started slapping things together. Looking at your motherboard from behind the real I/O panel, if you have a PSU connecto...

Just because it says Antec

Anonymous, Newegg
8 October 2010
  • Summary: I should perhaps be kinder to Antec. Mini ITX cases are problematic, and case design lags far behind mini ITX in general. But this is just not thought through. The power in to the PSU is simply ridiculous. The front panel wires are 1/2 to an inch too short to allow any sort of elegant routing.
  • Pros: on the outside doesn't mean quality on the inside. Pros: It's small
  • Cons: Poor quality and design - particularrly the PSU. I have to have my wires "just so" or no go. One look and you realize this was designed by Bozo the Clown. The power in cable has to do some crazy limbo, with sharp bends - a fail point a 4 year old could see. The same fate awaits the USB front pane...
