Summary: Great case, I have used it for over 5 years now and I have had no problems. I really like the fact that it has air intake filters to keep dust and other particles out. The split level case with the power supply apart from the motherboard cuts down on the noise and heat. Wire management can be a bit of a hassle but it is not too hard to work around. Lots of places for 120mm fans, and lots of space for addition drive.
Summary: This is the most nonfunctional piece of *&*&*(!. The plactic slides on the side panels broke several times. The top fan vent slides on and off too easily. The swinging door plastic pivots also broke. If you don't purchase an antec power supply you will have to purchase extensions for just about all your connectors. One of the two front panel usb ports broke.
Summary: Don't get me wrong, see the title of my review, this is a beautiful case. I absolutely adore this case. This is the best case I have ever seen let alone owned. My disappointment with this case comes in Antec's decision to place the power supply at the bottom of the case. I love having the power supply and drives in their own compartment, the issue is having to pull power cables over the motherboard to the connectors.
Summary: Got this case for a new build with an EVGA 123-YW-E175-A1 nForce 750i SLI FTW 775 Mainboard - Retail , Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Quad-Core Processor, 2.40 GHz, 8M L2 Cache, LGA 775 processor and an Geforce Gtx 260 Pcie 2.0 896MB DDR3 2PORT Dvi 576MHZ Far Cry 2 graphics card. Overall this is a pretty good case. Installing the mobo was really easy, and it is very well designed in terms of cable management. Just make sure you have a PSU with cords that are long enough.

Summary: Unlike most aluminum cases this is sturdy but is not at all quiet and, in fact I have to boost my speakers in games just to get an effect and it is a loud wall vibro to the nieghing neighbors too. Don't get it because it might be quiet the wall insulatters are only useful in an enclosed environemnt.
Summary: The Antec P180 is one of the best constructed computer cases I have seen at this price point. The points I liked about it are: 1. Attractive and well made. Layered steel and plastic walls are durable and help deaden fan sounds. 2. Unique configuration places power supply at the bottom of the case in away from the CPU. The power supply sits in its own chamber. This dramatically reduced the heat level in the main motherboard chamber (at least in my rig). 3.
Summary: The guy that said, "Oh, another thing you should know, it doesn't have any front panel LED. So you don't know when the system is accessing your hard drive and if it weren't for the sound of the fans you could not tell wether the computer is on or off. I guess that's a minus." is wrong. There is at least one blue LED light for the HDD activity right above the reset button, and another one above the power button that is not active on my machine.
