Antec Product Support (?)

Mike H, Amazon
26 March 2013
  • Summary: The case arrived missing drive bay covers and the rack of mounting rails. The front USB 3.0 ports do not work as 3.0 and must be converted to 2.0. This converter cable was not included. You must customer support to get cable. After 45 minutes waiting on the phone Alex answers.

Grounding Issue

  • 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.

Good case but BIG problem could damage system

S. Roberts "scroberts3", Amazon
21 February 2008
  • Summary: There is a very big and annoying problem with this product. It does not adequately discharge static electricity. If it has been running for a while and you, or your pet, brushes up against the metalic insert on the front of the panel, you can discharge your energy and crash the system.

25 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Eye-catching exterior. Challenging drive trays with silicone grommets for isolating drive vibration.Antec Consumer Service has historically been really responsive. In general, Antec appears to strive for excellent and very good design.Unfortunately in this instance, I really feel they fell short. 1.

Antec Sonata III 500 Black Computer Case

Zelig, pricebat.ca
14 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Pros are SIDEWAYS Tough DRIVE BAYS and SCREWS TO HOLD IN PCI CARDS. I wish all cases had been made this way. The front of this case is very flimsy and the locking front door is flimsy and useless.

  • Excerpt: Genuinely nice seeking case. Easy access to internals. screwless mounts for HD's and cards. Good filter on the front air inlet. About six months soon after getting the case, i noticed that it would reboot if I touched the front usb ports.

Feature-rich but poor design

Nick Finch, Amazon
25 August 2008
  • Summary: The Sonata III looks quite refined in piano black but it is really just a gloss-painted steel tower case with a plastic front. It is very cramped inside and large parts of it are rivetted together, making access from the front panel and the second side panel impossible.

  • Excerpt: Kann mich meinen Vorrednern leider nicht überall anschließen. Würde eigentlich 2,5 Sterne vergeben. Der Gehäuselüfter ist auf Stufe 3 unerträglich, auf 2 immernoch laut und auf 1 grade ok. Was fast noch mehr stört ist aber das hochfrequente Rauschen des Netzteillüfters.

  • Summary: Nja, vet inte om det var värt pengarna ja la ut faktiskt. RIKTIGT krånglig installation av hårddisken (man skruvar i hårddiskarna från undersidan, istället från sidan). Visst, riktigt robust och snyggt chassi, men jag vet inte om det var värt pengarna, som sagt. Nätagget fungerar bra, dock.
