Engineering Blunder

Daniel H., Newegg
5 September 2012
  • Summary: Perfect example of high quality materials being wasted on extremely poor engineering. Definately might want to talk to some German Engineering Companies. I would not buy this case again.
  • Pros: Solid Materials
  • Cons: This is an engineering blunder. What a waste of good materials. Design does not accomodate cabling nor will it provide good cooling for internal drives.

Awkward Drive Placement, 2.5" drives don't fit at all

Bradley E., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Summary: This case has a "designed by committee" feel to it. It isn't all that small, but is cramped. It has some interesting design features that are poorly executed. For the money, there are better cases out there.
  • Pros: It is a relatively small case, though I think it could easily be another 1-1.5" narrower if they tried. Standard PSU size.
  • Cons: The drive placement is completely awkward. The bottom tray can't be easily unscrewed because one screw is directly below the CPU heatsink so unless you use a really short screwdriver it can't be easily done. Up top, there is another bottom-mount 3.5" tray with the same strange design. Putting a n...

Disappointment

Ronald B., Newegg
9 November 2011
  • Pros: It's beautiful, sleek and professional looking and the 380 watt PSU should be ample. It doesn't have cable length problems or sharp edges as reported in other opinions.
  • Cons: It's a disaster. The fan is a female plug and none of the two wiring harnesses can be attached. There is NO speaker wire for connection from the front panel connector to the motherboard. There are only two SATA connectors - one on each line that has the two mysterious female plugs. This must be a...

quiet, but awkward to work in

stuff, Newegg
13 October 2011
  • Pros: Case is quiet, as advertised. Rubber mounts avoid hard drive noise, and the large rear fan is nearly silent.
  • Cons: It's a disaster to work inside this case: - the edges are razor sharp. It's shop 101 to break the edge of machined/stamped parts, but Antec skipped that step. I cut myself twice removing the 5.25 drive cover. - the power cables are just barely long enough if you want to use the lower 3.5 inch mou...

Not for Beginners

Avery C., Newegg
29 December 2009
  • Summary: Not for first time builders. If you know what you're doing, don't expect this to be easy unless you go with a microATX PSU with adapter plate.
  • Pros: Antec makes solid cases. This is no exception.
  • Cons: This is my 4th antec case, but I've never dealt with such a small case before. First timers should stay clear. Experienced builders should be cautious if they intend to include an optical drive or a 2nd internal hard drive. -I took a point off for PSU compatibility. It's a microATX case, but it h...

Antec New Solution NSK3480 Black/ Silver Computer Case

Jan, pricebat.ca
13 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Antec tends to make solid circumstances. This is no exception. This is my 4th antec case, but I've in no way dealt with such a little case ahead of. First timers ought to stay clear. Skilled builders must be cautious if they intend to consist of an optical drive or a 2nd internal difficult drive.
