Summary: Case requires long leads from your power supply since its mounted at the bottom of this really tall case. Cable management is GREAT!!! Soft grommets and folded edges everywhere, no sharp edges. This is a VERY SOLID case!!!!
Pros: Beautiful clean Design when door closed. Large, wide and tall Case, big plus for water cooling or large cpu coolers and long GPUs. not all GPU's will fit, HDD cage is not removable that i can see. Supports Huge CPU cooler (coolermaster Hyper 212 with both Fans). Lots of wire management space behi...
Cons: Door only opens from right to left - not too bad. Magnetic door catch is not that strong - door barely stays closed. *Header connectors for LED's and power buttons are too short to be run through wire management to the front lower edge of a typical ATX form factor MB, much less the back lower edg...
Summary: This is my third Antec Case. I had P180, P182 and now P280. I decided to replace my p182 because two front usb ports very lose because of heavy usage. Also P280 was on sale and it offered TWO 2.0 and TWO 3.0 USB ports. I was disappointed when this case arrived and when I powered on.
Pros: - Cable Management - Many Drive Bays - Roomy - Power, reset, and USBs are easily accessible now compare to P180 and P182.
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'
Summary: If I didn't need these amount of PCI slots for the machines I built, I would of went with a Fractal Design Define R4 for a similar price. They are quieter too.
Pros: Great price for such a spacious tower. Definitely does not lack the airflow capability.
Cons: cheap fans. I bought two of these, and out of 6 total fans, three of them have started making loose bearing style noises and I replaced them with cheapo cooler master fans that have yet to ever fail me.
Summary: As I mentioned, the back left foot is misaligned, so the case does not sit flat. I would return this case and try and get a new one, but that is too much of a hassle. I guess I loved my P183 too much and expected this to be better, but it simply is not.
Pros: Great design. Very spacious. Lots of place for fans, HDDs, etc. Great cable management. Doesn't have any useless rice/junk features. I didn't want a case that has stupid blue LED lights or a huge side panel window; this case is sleek and mature looking. Power/reset button on top is a welcome chan...
Cons: I guess I'm a little disappointed with this product. For starters, the case doesn't sit flat - the back left rubber foot is off by a little bit and the case will wobble if you press it. It seems like the bottom of the case got bent to cause this. My previous build used an Antec P183. I guess I am...
Summary: Submitted: 1/3/2014 but receive at 1/16/2014 (and i haved pay for express). And the case have little damage. but i don't return it because i don't want wait 2 more week. but i am disappointing about shipping.
Pros: really nice case
Cons: nothing about design, but disappointing about shipping (see "Other thoughts" )
Summary: I wish this had the foam from the front door was on the case panels. Probably would be better for the sound dampening then the thin little material they have now. Can't really test this since I don't know what a naked p280 sounds like.
Pros: The case is stylish, although I like the look of the p180 better. The blue indicator lights are low-profile and are not obnoxious. I'm not sure if the sound dampening material is doing it's job, but it has a nice feel to it and I'm sure it can't hurt. The filters are easy to change. Also the case...
Cons: The feet annoy me. One of the grips came unglued. Then one of the feet came off. Upon further inspection, the feet themselves are not attached well at all. It is a big deal to me, but gives me an excuse to put wheels on it. The wire management grommets are annoying as well. They are easy to separ...
Summary: Case was fine, but I was not satisfied with Antec support. They sent me a replacement kit labeled P280 (despite the fact that I had given them the exact length of the proper screws), then told me that it was working as designed. If I knew that would be their response, I wouldn't have bothered.
Pros: Lots of space for drives, designed well for heat-sink attachment, plenty of cooling options.
Cons: Wrong size screws for attaching drives. They fit very loosely, unlike the screws for the Antec P180 (which I also own).
