Absolutely not worth the money compared to other cases

Summary: The case functions just fine, and I wouldn't say its a horrible case, however the bottom line is you can get so. much. more. at the 90 dollar price point that I could never recommend this case to anyone anymore and even felt the need to write this review and give it 3/5 stars.
Pros: I bought two of these cases, one for my personal PC and one for my brother. The cases were great at the time, however after owning them for 3-5 years and seeing the evolution of case design and standards I felt I needed to leave a review on this case, because in my opinion, this case does not deserve a 5 star rating. There are SO MANY cases that you can get for this price ($90 or even the sale price of $70) that are significantly better. PROS -Great airflow, seriously...
Cons: Where to begin? I feel like the case industry has just moved on and has much higher standards than when this case first came out. Things such as tool-less installation, better cable management, better support for things like radiators, etc... all come standard on many cases, even at the 50 dollar price range. Regardless, this case has some issues that make it something I would never use for a new build. 1. The drive bays are attached to the front fans and come out as ...
Pros: I had previously owned the Antec 300 and although I was satisfied, I I had some minor gripes about the case. A friend of mine swears by Antec and this product was rated very high, so I tried Antec's high end case and I must say I am very, very pleased. Even though it's a mid tower, the case is very roomy and is very easy to disassemble. I was able to assemble my new computer in under an hour because of how easy it is to fit all the pieces into the case. The airflow is...
Pros: This is the case to have. I like how you can interchange the bays, that is great. The side panel with the window is great. Which I prefer myself. The motherboard fits easily into the case with no problem. I like the power supply that is on the bottom and the Atec power supply that I installed looks great. It is the case to have.
Summary: This is my second rig built using an Antec 900. The first one has had no problems for 7 years, but the recent version I bought in November has faulty USB 3.0 ports on the front. One doesn't work, and the other doesn't register as a 3.0 port. A little research determines that there have been several problems with the 3.0 USB ports, most related to faulty hardware.
Pros: Good airflow, room for big cards, quiet
Cons: Faulty USB 3.0 ports, Poor customer support, difficult disassembly
Summary: This case has been my workhorse for 8 years. I am building a new system at the moment and am planning to reuse this case to house it. Definitely going to consider liquid cooling, air filters, and anything else that can get the noise down a bit.
Pros: The case has lots of room for expansion and airflow. The design works well with having the power supply mounted at the bottom and a large fan at the top of the case, allowing the heat to rise and flow out of the case. Top fan is effective at lower settings and runs pretty quiet.
Cons: The 120mm fans on the front, back, and side of case can be very loud. Lack of filters in the case cause a LOT of dust. Changing out a drive can be a struggle because you have to remove both side panels and unscrew thumbscrews which don't alway fit in the holes provided.
