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: The run around on the replacement parts will have me looking elsewhere as I'm planning 2 new builds currently.
Pros: I have 2 of these cases that I've used for pc builds. Wire management was good, lots of space and everything felt durable.

Summary: Recently a young man with few brains and lots of cash asked me to construct the ultimate gamer computer. I got together the latest and fastest extreme core2 intel chip with an asus striker extream MB. along with 4 gigs of the best Patriot ram and two EVGA 7950 gs video cards. Along with a liquid cooled system and two seagate 10,000 rpm hard drives. So far so good. Understanding that cases are a personal choice I send this young man in to get his case.
Pros: nice looking and Lots of fans
Cons: everythings else, Poor fit. poor design. lack of external drive bays.
