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. We heard absolutely no resonating noises from the case and although P180 Mini is only a micro-atx size case there was enough space for multiple hard disks and 5.25″ devices. This all comes for a cost.
Summary: As we mentioned at the beginning of the review the Antec P180 is a computer case that has a few years on it (released in 2006), but this case is still is a viable choice for anyone looking for a new well designed case. While the Antec P182 has some major improvements made to it and sells for about $20.00 more, you get basically the same case for a few dollars less and you will still have one of the best cases on the market.
Conclusion: The Antec P180 Advanced Super Mid-Tower can be classified as an excellent economical case or entry level server for any individual looking to upgrade. The black base and aluminum highlights position this case as a great purchase thanks to the simple yet aesthetically pleasing design. Antec continues to develop a classic chassis design that has made its older models popular but at the same time offers some subtle improvements for this new revision.
Pros: Aesthetically pleasing design, Price, Front mounted dual USB, Firewire, Headphone and Microphone ports, Built-in fan filters and air ducts, Removable drive cages, Sound proof side panels, Plenty of storage capacity, Sturdy chassis construction
Cons: Extremely heavy, No removable motherboard tray, Cable management can be challenging, Swing away door feels flimsy and cheap, No PSU included in package
Summary: The Antec P182 is a genuine improvement on the P180. The core features of the P180 are retained, the wire management is vastly improved, and no new glitches are apparent. That it's also more water-cooling friendly obviously broadens the appeal of the case, and the internal gooseneck light is probably an attractive feature for most potential buyers.
Summary: The Antec P180 Case is not the newest case from Antec, but it's still a fantastic product. The side panels and front door have an innovative three-layer design which has excellent noise dampening properties. This makes it one of the quietest mid-tower cases on the market so it's perfect case for a near silent build. Watch the video to find out more.
Summary: In Zeiten des kommerziell betriebenen "Kauf-Moddings" werden so manch falsche Gedankenansätze vor allem in den Köpfen von Interessenten verankert, die sich bisher mit der eigentlichen Materie des Case-Moddings noch nicht befasst haben. Fehlen die handwerklichen Fähigkeiten, freut sich oftmals die Industrie und es wird vermehrt zu Fertiglösungen im Gehäusebereich gegriffen, die schon ab Werk kräftig mit bunt blinkenden LEDs ausgerüstet sind und dem stolzen Käufer das...
Pros: Dezentes, Puristisches Design Außen, Innovative Kühlungstechnologie (2 Kammer-System), Hervorragende Silent-Eigenschaften, 3 vorinstallierte 120mm Lüfter, Viel Platz für zusätzliche Peripherie
Excerpt: Cases say an awful lot about you as a computer user. Those out there with the clear sides and all that electric blue lighting seem to send out that “I know what I’m doing when I work on my computer, now leave me alone because I’m busy researching worm holes and quantum physics”.
Excerpt: Antec is well known for producing some of the most acoustically advanced enclosures around. In fact, Mike Chin, SPCR's editor, has twice collaborated with Antec to create the P180 and the NSK2400 — both of which incorporate low noise design features based on tried-and-true SPCR knowledge.
