Dent on top of case

Anonymous, Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: Much like another reviewer mentioned my case also had a significant dent on the top. The shipping box was in good condition. ... This would seem to imply a failure in QA, or that my case was an open box.
  • Pros: - Nice looking functional case.
  • Cons: - Damaged - A little larger than expected

Faulty

Iang, dabs.com

  • Summary: Case good except for case fan that didn't work. Antec most unhelpful and required fan to be returned to Rotterdam at buyers expense for testing and possible replacement. This for a £5 fan! Not recommended.

Beautiful case

David B., Newegg
11 March 2015
  • 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...

Low Quality

Sung P., Newegg
19 February 2015
  • 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.
  • Cons: - Not Quiet Computing anymore -- Noisy - Low Quality - Cheap Plastics - Cheap Fans

  • 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.

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'

Cheap fans

Marc C., Newegg
8 May 2014
  • 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.

A Little Disappointed Coming From the P183.

Alex S., Newegg
30 April 2014
  • 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: While this is a solid case well built and well thought out storage. The lack of fan spaces make this a low end gamer case or home server case.
  • Pros: Solid Case, Intelligent Storage Bays. Quality Finish. Spacious.
  • Cons: Limited Fan Bays.
