Exceptional Damage

Edub, Amazon

Mike H, Amazon

No eSATA front port

Zoltan the Gypsy, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: This is a nice case, but not quite as advertised. Antec has changed the specification without changing the model number. Units shipping lately have two USB 3.0 front ports, not the two USB 2.0 + eSATA ports as advertised.

Super Quiet Home Server Case

Jim, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The Antec Sonata III 500 case is dramatically quiet with use of only one 120mm fan. The cabinet is well designed with lots of room for connecting hardware. The price was reasonable considering I no longer hear the server while it is working. Thank You

Grounding Issue

omuomu, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: Mine had a grounding issue which apparently has been solved. I contacted Antec- they sent me the middle piece (formerly chrome, now black), no instructions, no information. Ridiculous. I bought a NZXT, problem solved.
