Summary: Overall this is a good, solid case...though I expect no less from Antec. I have two builds with their 900 case(my favorite) but when with this one for my wife's system due to the cat sitting on top of her case. The power buttons and usb connectivity on top of the 900 wouldn't have been good in case the cat accidentally stepped on one of them.
Summary: The case is really great for the price, but... This is the first Antec case I have purchased that wasn't five stars and that is because the extra brass standoffs supplied in the zip lock bag were actually too small on the diameter of the threads. Couldn't tighten, just spun! Boy was I hot! The standoffs in the plate for the motherboard, when moved around, securely fit the pre-drilled & tapped holes.
Summary: We're building two computers, one for myself, and one for my son. I've had Antec cases in the past, and have been very happy with them. This case is no exception. It has plenty of room, and a good cable management area behind the motherboard. The only thing I would have liked to see, is a thin rubber seal over the cable management holes. They don't need to be the grommets, but at least something to cover the sharp edge of the metal.
Summary: Nice solid case. Plenty of room. Cables can be hidden behind the mother board. Easy to access hard drives. Power button seems flimsy and is easy to accidently press with your leg. Antec stands behind its products so one call and the will probably take care of any issues that arise.
Summary: I rather like Antec (and CoolerMaster) cases. This one was great and its subdued looks were great for my dad's office / gaming PC I built for him. Great cooling and great price and lots of room for a top-tier GPU. Why four stars? My only gripe, really, was the cheap feeling power button. I'm rather picky about how the power button feels on a case, and this power button feels cheaper than most cases I've dealt with.
Summary: I own five of these. Stopped purchasing alternative brand/models. I was disappointed that the last unit did not ship with 2.5 drive rails, but I had to mount them to the case behind the mother board. Odd and bloody annoying. Nice to have the option to mount to the case, but previous versions of the box shipped with at least one 2.5 drive bracket to be installed the disk drive bays.
Summary: I am delighted with this case-its big and retains many of the features that Antec has used in the past but discarded in newer and more expensive cases. The wonder is that they can keep the price so low. The case material is a heavy guage metal. it has provision for enough optional fans, it has a removable panal behind the the CPU so that one can check the quality of the CPU fan installation and add another fan behind the CPU, it permits servicing of hard drives by just...
Summary: Some of the changes to this case were not improvements over the original version, i.e. HDD mounting. It is still a decent case -- more openings for 120mm fans and better for bottom mount PSUs, but I believe Antec has opt'd to retire this line. Quality control leaves a bit to be desired, too. I have two of these cases and one has the front panel USB 3 ports flipped upside down. Probably would have noticed but this is where I plug in my USB WiFi.
