Sturdy, roomy, and noisy, and a few other caveats.

private, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: Its an "okay" case, not a great case. It is sturdy, it is not too much trouble to install a system in it. Drive installation is not very convenient, you will need a screw driver and cabling a lot of drives might be tricky. The distance from a more or less typical power supply to an ASrock motherboard was at the limit. In my opinion, it is too noisy to use as a workstation. It might be a very good choice if you are building a server.

Plastic feet are of awful quality.

Dan B, Amazon

  • Summary: Everything about this case is well made except the feet. It has been less than 2 weeks since I received this case and I regret not heeding the warning of the reviewer that had commented on the poor quality of the feet on this case. First of all, I am upgrading from an Antec case that is at least half a decade old. This old case had RUBBER feet that held tightly on to the case TO THIS VERY DAY.

Dented case but intact box?!?

Kevin D., Newegg

  • Pros: Looks like the product advertised. Suprisingly lightweight. It's Antec. Looks like there's some toggle-able fan controls on the back.
  • Cons: The case I just received has a significant dent on the top. The box it shipped in was in good shape. This would seem to imply a failure in QA, or that my case was an open box. Both possibilities are disappointing. I'm a bit alarmed at how light weight the case is. Being a proud Antec P180 and Solo owner, both cases were heavy and had good acoustics. Rather than the multi-layered doors of the P180, the P280 uses a thin pad of material inside the door for sound dampenin...

  • Summary: lots of room, looks nice and decent cable management, however the case feet and HDD trays are about as durable as twigs and ive lost one drive tray already, and completely replaced the feet. cooling is good, though you may wind up cleaning it often due to the negative pressure design, and the built in fan controller is as cheap as you might expect at the price charged for this case.

nice case with silly things

hh, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: Case P280 is well build but if you are using Asus z9pe_ws dual processor mb then carefull, there are two fixing pillars can make a short on your mb and damage it. also there are not enough mounting holes for this mb hence one end flexes and when u r pushing the RAM in, it can get bend a lot. The other silly thing is the hardisk holders. There is a plastic thing goes accross making pluging in the 90 degree power connections immpossible.

  • Summary: Jag fick ett måndagsexemplar med repad front, felvända fötter och distanshålen var så dåligt borrade att färre dsitanser än önskat fick användas. I övrigt väldigt bra, men jag fick som sagt ett måndagsexemplar som antagligen inte är representativt för chassit i allmänhet.

  • Summary: Jag byggde ihop en dator åt en kompis för ett drygt år sedan med detta chassi då jag har ett gammalt P182 själv som jag är mycket nöjd med. P280 borde ju vara ännu bättre tänkte jag... men icke! Fördelar: * Massor av plats för kabeldragning, stora moderkort/grafikkort, vattenkylning etc. * Hål på baksidan av moderkortsplåten så man slipper skruva loss allt om man vill byta CPU-kylare (det tycker jag största nackdelen med gamla P182).

  • Summary: Jag har haft klassiska P180 sedan det lanserades. Ett chassi med många brister, men också många kvaliteter. Det var med förhoppningar om en avsevärt förfinad konstruktion som jag beställde P280, något som tyvärr inte infriades i den utsträckning jag trodde. Positivt: + När det gäller placeringar av kontakter, genomdragshål och dylikt så är det en kraftig förbättring.
