Summary: Have used a lot of these cases to build systems, for some reason, my ASUS main boards don't like interfacing with the front panel USB ports ... as a matter of face, every time I plug into one of those ports my system will freeze and reboot ...
Summary: The case did not have crome front band as displayed in the add and did not have the Sata port as shown. Kind of misleading but I really do not have to have all of that. Just would have been nice to get what was shown.
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.
Summary: I ordered this case last week, looking forward to having the 2 front USB 3.0 and 1 eSata port. I received the case, which correctly states it is the Antec Sonata III 500 and it only has 2 USB ports and audio jacks on the front of the case. No eSata port.
Summary: My Sonata III 500 arrived with a broken door. It looks like Antec will replace it, but I'm really disappointed with the quality. I had never ordered a name-brand case before and I was expecting something better than a generic.
Excerpt: Excellent 500w Energy provide incorporated. Swappable bays. Simple aesthetics. Reusable front air filter. Place for SSD. Black case is much uglier/drab in real life that the silverish depiction. Low cost plastic door that encloses bays doesn't close appropriately. Not especially quiet.
Excerpt: - Solid construction- Reasonably excellent style- Massive enough to accommodate most elements - That stupid, flimsy plastic front door!- Poorly-fitted side panel, cheap rails, etc.- NOT A QUIET CASE!!
Excerpt: I just built my 15th or so machine based on the Sonata platform. It's a incredibly quiet case, artful, minimalist, functional, and excellent for the program builder with its ease of assembly. Hard drives mount on gel vibration reducers. Energy supplies are 80Plus certified.
