USB 3.0 front panel connectors not working and crappy customer support

57Strat, Amazon
28 March 2015
  • Summary: Other than the USB 3.0 front panel ports not working, this is a really nice case. I called Antec customer service and was left on hold for 3 hours and I finally gave up and hung up. Then I filled out a trouble ticket on the Antec customer support webpage but haven't heard back from Antec.

This is a nice quiet case with plenty of room to work with

Beau Steward, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a nice quiet case with plenty of room to work with. I definitely liked the cable management available in the case, allowing me to make the cleanest interior I have done in a computer build.

Poor quality control

Anonymous, Newegg
21 February 2015
  • Pros: Great looking case that gives me just what I need without any unnecessary frills.
  • Cons: My experience is almost identical to other recent reviews with regard to the side panels. The thin, sound dampening polycarbonate layer arrived almost completely off on both sides. I pressed them back on, but they peeled off again. Two of the drive brackets had gotten loose during shipping and we...

They keep making themselves look bad

Brent S., Newegg
18 February 2015
  • Summary: This would have been a 4 star product until I dealt with their support. While I haven't had to fight with them I have had to keep after them to make sure this eventually gets resolved. I would not expect this build quality from a case that will run you nearly $130 once it's all said and done.
  • Pros: Nice finish, clean design.
  • Cons: The product quality seems like it's on par for a $60 case. The drive bay inserts that you see on the side of the case (4 little oval plastic pieces) are very flimsy. I removed them all and 1 of them had a clip snap off. The other 3 had visible white stress marks on the plastic and you can tell th...

Clean design, Poor QA and support.

Brent, Amazon
18 February 2015
  • Summary: I had a few minor issues such as the sound dampening on both case panels being curled up. I also had some broken drive bay inserts. I contacted support and 4 weeks later I had 2 new side panels. There wasn't much padding in the package so both side panels were damaged.

Where is QA?

Brian L., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: I really like the design of this case and hope Antec can bring their QA back.
  • Pros: Very good design.
  • Cons: Quality control is very much missing at Antec. The computer case was shipped without the rear fan. Two the side rails were out of the holder on the bottom of the case, one was hidden behind the back panel. One of the header pins (power) was out of the connector.

Great case if you want something relatively plain and dead quiet

Davey, Amazon
7 February 2015
  • Summary: This case is great. I have two of them. The understated look is great and it's very very quiet. I replaced the fans with some PWM fans and run them off of a Y-adapter on the aux CPU header of my ASUS Z87 motherboard. The stock fans were quiet but just ran at a constant speed.

I will never buy another Antec product again

Anthony B., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Summary: The formatting for the first review I left got all messed up and their were some mistakes, so I am writing this again. Antec's customer service is rude and obnoxious. I ordered this case from Newegg and it's supposed to come with 4 side rails for installing 2 optical drives. Mine only came with 2.
  • Pros: The case is fine but only comes with 1 fan. I ordered 2 extra fans to install in the front.
  • Cons: Was missing 2 side rails for mounting a second optical drive.
