Excerpt: If you have not heard of Antec before you must be living in a cave or somewhere remote. Antec is one of the major players in the case and power supply market. At one time or another many of us have used one of the cases.
Conclusion: In case you’re in a need for micro-atx sized case P180 Mini might be the one for you. Conservative clean looks, marvellous interior design, good cable management and many other features this case has to offer are only the beginning.
Summary: Finding the right chassis for a system build is like setting up the foundation before building out the design of your computer and working your craftsmanship into the intricate details of component selection and configuration.
Conclusion: The Mini P180 gets above average marks for presentation. Maybe it was a random freak of nature that UPS delivered it to my door without a scratch, but it looks like the packaging can stand up to some abuse without damaging the product.
Pros: Rigid construction, Classy and subtle looks, perfect for the target market, Flexible cooling options, top and rear exhaust with speed controls, Superior cable management, Inside looks as good as the outside, Isolated chambers for PSU and motherboard, drives, Quiet operation, 200mm fan is a cut ab...

Excerpt: Most custom-built PCs today have gaudy cases, with flashy blue neon lights, and LED fans. Antec is taking a different approach with the new minimalistic Mini P180 mini-tower case, which builds on top of their award winning P180 and P182 cases in a compact design, perfect for LAN parties.
Pros: Excellent cable management., Nearly silent., Stylish black interior.
Conclusion: The Mini P180 is a welcome addition to Antec’s Performance One line of enclosures and stands up well against its larger siblings. It’s a sleek and stylish case with a lot of features packed into it.
Conclusion: Altogether the new Mini follows the footsteps of the previous P180-series cases very carefully. The good ventilation that allows even the hottest running components to be used in the case, the composite side panels and the vibration dampening mountings for the HDDs do their part in making even a bit...
Pros: Good ventilation, Quiet, Dust filters
Cons: Heavy and large for a mATX-case, Removal of the bottom dust filter

Conclusion: Bočne stranice se otvaraju na klasičan način. Moramo pohvaliti kvalitetne vodilice za bočne stranice pa je tako skidanje i vraćanje jednostavno i brzo. U Antecu su vodili računa i o organizaciji kabela tako da postoje brojni otvori kroz koje moguće provesti kablove od donje komore (gdje se nalazi...
