Far and away the best case I've ever owned

Quinn P., Newegg
5 September 2014
  • Summary: If you have room for this case, buy it. You will never regret it.
  • Pros: * HUGE, I'll never need to expand again! * Comes with more screws of more types than you'll ever possibly need * Comes with cable ties for cable management * Internal passthroughs for cable management make all the difference * Sturdy construction * Tons and tons of toolless screws that work excellently
  • Cons: * The front door swings open if you tilt the case forward. It could latch harder.

Not Cat Friendly

Thomas S., Newegg
28 August 2014
  • Pros: Awesome case. Great for a clean setup of cables and plenty of spaced compared to the P-180 Predecessor.
  • Cons: While a great case, it is not cat friendly. As all cat owners know, cats love to walk around or sleep on top of their case. The power button located on the top seems to be cat paw sized and unless you cover it with an object, your cat WILL power off your computer in the middle of some work, or worse yet, a raid. It loses an egg for all cat owners. otherwise, 5/5.

Dan S., Newegg

  • Summary: 1-2 weeks for the panel to be shipped from Antec is a little frustrating, but since this case was bought for internal use and not for resale, it's not a deal breaker.
  • Pros: Excellent looking case; extremely quiet. Much lighter than previous Antec cases like the P180. Great clean looking case. Antec Support was very responsive and agreed to ship a new front panel.
  • Cons: Case came with the front snapped off.

Excellent case, great value

Todd H., Newegg
26 July 2014
  • Summary: This is nice, quiet, adult-styled case. Received rebate in less than 4 weeks, no hassles, final cost <80 bux. An excellent value. This is my second Antec case, and I like this one much better than the old 900 without the blue LEDs. The P280 is superior to the 9/12 series in terms of space/cable routing and possibly their equal cooling-wise if fans are added.
  • Pros: Case dimensions permit installation of most any video card(s) or CPU cooler. HD/SSD easy in/out. Cable routing options very good. Ease of access for PC building is better than most cases. Quiet enclosure with stock fans, still pretty quiet with WC, although pump is noisier than most fans at normal speed. I was concerned about the 3x120mm stock fans providing adequate cooling. With an added 240mm WC taking up the two top fan positions I relocated the 2 top 120s to fron...
  • Cons: The side doors are large and have a slight warp/twist , causing them to spring right off the sides when you remove the second thumbscrew. Would prefer them to stay in place until I got hands on to lift out of way. Bottom air intake for PSU precludes placement of the P280 directly on carpeted floor. Must use a piece of wooden board or something rigid to raise off of carpet. I went nuts and built a custom dolly with vent and casters sourced from local hardware store for...

Its big

Gene G., Newegg
17 July 2014
  • Summary: The shipping was very fast and got here in good shape.Thanks again Newegg for another good job.In my opinion you people that work for Newegg are #1.
  • Pros: Its big but I knew that before I bought it.I have a MSI Z97 MOBO,MSI GTX 750 Ti which is long but no problem,1 SSD,2 HDD,1 DVD burner,750 Watt PSU and besides the 3 fans it came with I added 2 more 120s.Going by the gadget on the desktop it runs between 120 and 130 f.Overall it is well made,the side doors dont flex,it is very quiet.There is still a lot more room in it for more stuff.
  • Cons: When it arrived the box showed no signs of damage but when I got it out of the box one of the feet was broke so I called Antec and I explained the problem and it went out in the mail the next day and was here the day after that.Im not going to deduct any eggs because Antec was very good about taking care of the problem.

Very quiet, rock solid

Drew U., Newegg
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I had issues getting the faceplate for my motherboard to sit correctly on the back of the case so my mobo is basically hanging open in the back.
  • Pros: This case is very quiet and stays cool! I've had it for a little over two years now and has survived two moves with me. I would definitely buy it again though I wish it came in a slightly smaller form factor - I have an SSD, an HDD, and a DVD-RW in it and it just looks empty. Solid constructions, tons of space inside, great looking, ports on the front, just love it.
  • Cons: It's very heavy which is either a pro or a con, depending on how you look at it. Annoying to move around.

Dented case but intact box

Zhi L., Newegg
13 July 2014
  • Pros: nice case with plenty of room and nice cable management
  • Cons: Same as other reviewers have pointed out, the case I just received has a significant dent on the top, and some of the paint even came off, but the box it shipped in was in good shape. I am not sure the reason behind this. I hope that this is not a refurbished item being marked and sold as 'new'

Can't think of a real flaw

Say G., Newegg
5 July 2014
  • Summary: Have 1 at home, 2 at work, easiest to work with case I've had so far.
  • Pros: Plenty of room, very easy to work with; padded, slide-out brackets and cable holders abundant. Muffles noise just fine. Room/cable management contributes to decent airflow.
  • Cons: Might be a little larger than whatever size you imagine it is.
