Very Nice Tower

Mike C., Newegg
3 May 2015
  • Summary: My video card is 10.5 inch ling. It has about 1/2 inch spare. I knew it was be bit tight. I checked to make a sure. It did fit very well inside of the tower.
  • Pros: I like the design and just right size.
  • Cons: It was bit tight inside but most of hardware fit inside.. It was not really con.

Good Quality As Usual

Zhanxi D., Newegg
27 March 2015
  • Pros: Reasonable price for mid tower case. I am looking for a not big size mid tower and Antec Sonata is perfect. I have used Antec Sonata computer case since 2004. This one is newer than my existing case, and its quality has been transferred from old generation to new generation.
  • Cons: None.

Quiet, Well Built, Nice Drive Rails and Door

Terry M., Newegg
17 March 2015
  • Summary: This is a "quiet" case - if you need "super cooling" get a case w/ multiple front 120mm fans and a big top exhaust (my Antec Three Hundred gets the job done but is MUCH louder). For a non-gamer build this is the perfect balance between cooling and quiet - I love the "internal" 120mm fan that draws...
  • Pros: A very classy looking case - nice USB 3.0 update to the Sonata III (which I also have). The best 3.5" internal drive trays I've ever used - they mount 3.5" drives from the bottom (so be aware for 2.5" adapters). Great door (which I need this to keep little fingers out). I like the old style top m...
  • Cons: The only real problem I've had with these cases is the new motherboards that have "90 degree" SATA ports that come off the back edge of the board - this case has two cutouts that line up with the MB and allow SATA cables to pass behind the 3.5" drive bays (perfect) but some full size MBs don't li...

Bad choice for major gaming graphics cards!

Brian Cayton, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Just found out the case does not handle big graphics cards like the GTX 760, because the cards are over 10" long and this case only allows 9.5" graphics cards. Its best for average gaming computers and if you leave your computer on all the time and dont want sound emitting from it.

Simple and Effective

Dwight B., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Power button is behind the lockable front panel which is inconvenient for users that like to power off their machines frequently. I didn't notice when I ordered it because I was focused on the interior layout. On the upside you (or your pets) are unlikely to accidentally power off the PC.
  • Pros: ORGANIZED This is an excellent simple case. I was able to keep wires tucked out of the way on the two units I built with this case model despite not having a modular power supply. NICE HARD DRIVE SLOTS The drive bays are accessed from the side rather than front-to-back which allows you to remove ...
  • Cons: Only one side panel can be removed. I would have preferred to be able to access cable-routing areas by removing both panels. (And the likely uncommon desire to manage hard drive cables without removing the entire hard drive unless it was possible to install the hard drives backward, but it didn't...
