Good but not quite great ...

Bruce den Dulk, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • 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 ...

Did not match what I thought I ordered

Marc D. Leeke, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • 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.

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.

Wrong model of this case

Shawn, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • 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.

Not bad but not great

L. Wick, Amazon
13 March 2008
  • 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.

Antec Sonata III 500 Black Computer Case

Jillian, pricebat.ca
3 March 2013
  • 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.

Antec Sonata III 500 Black Computer Case

Syshe, pricebat.ca
26 July 2012
  • 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.
