Pros: The biggest Pro is Cost. For the money, this case does the job. I have used this case for several computer builds now and have had no complaints over several years. The case dissapates heat well for a smaller case. The case is light and sturdy.
Cons: - The case can be a bit tight inside if you are using large graphic cards or multiple graphic cards. - If you are a big overclocker, you might want to go with additional fans than what the tower comes with. Or go Antec 900 for serious air flow.
This is now my favorite mid-size case - wish I'd used it for other builds

Summary: I'm using this case for a file server so I wanted a no-frills type setup that was well-built and reasonably priced. This case fit the bill. For this type of setup though the front audio jacks were not necessary. I would rather have had more USB options and even a reset button.
Pros: Well built and sturdy. Easy to work in. Really liked the way the front and side panels hinged in place rather than the tongue and groove style I've seen. Also impressed with the ability to remove the front panel completely (it was not tethered to the case with wiring).
Cons: No internal speaker for the motherboard. Not impressed with the position for the 2.5" drive directly behind the motherboard. There is lots of room in this case does the drive need to be in a place where you must remove the motherboard to get to the drive?
Summary: If you're not sure which case to buy just get this one. I really don't think you will be disappointed. You will be able to use this case for years to come.
Pros: I have purchased several of the older models of this case and the improvements to it are really remarkable. For this price point, this case is freaking amazing. It has lots of room to work. Quick snap on rails to slide in 3.5" drives, quick release locks and buttons for optical drives, USB 3.0 fr...
Summary: I love it when a company continues to improve on a great design instead of throwing the baby out with the bathwater every few years. I don't see any changes for cost cutting, only to make it better. There is no flimsy, iffy, flashy nonsense about this case.
Summary: Ok, this is amazing... Everything I have fits in here and you can fit an h100i in here if you wanted to... I was looking for a case that could support my CPU cooler, the hyper 212 evo, and this gets the job done... This case is definitely great for overclockers because it has great airflow...
Summary: added a front intake fan and this thing is chillin, great airflow, kinda wish the hard drive rack was removable to allow better flow if only using a single SSD setup, had a micro-atx board in this case and it looked tiny so really made for atx boards imo.
Pros: No sharp edges anywhere inside and out - awesome quality, included fans have 2 speeds (hi-low) and can be adjusted in the back-exterior, plenty of room for more fans and cable management is easy with the cut-outs
Summary: This is the first case I came across that asks you to mount the SSD on the case chasis. For ~10 minutes, I was looking for a mounting bracket to no avail, and then realized that the four screw holes at the bottom of the case were actually for SSD. I guess this is not really a con.
Pros: The case is HUGE and WIDE, mostly because it has a lot of space behind the motherboard mounting plate, to allow more room for cable management. It is built like a tank and the quality is top notch. I didn't see it mentioned anywhere on Newegg's product page, but the case actually has two fan cont...
Cons: I wish the interior of the case was black, instead of the plain looking of steel. Also, you know the place where all the PCI/PCIe brackets are attached to the chasis in the back? They're already secured with screws, so it's kinda weird that Antec decided to add one more bracket on the top to secu...
Pros: This case is great! It was $40 after rebate. Sturdy construction. Easy assembly with no tools necessary for hard drive bay install. The case has excellent cooling. The wire management system is fantastic! A+ job Antec! LORD bless you!
Summary: I love this case. I have the previous release of it and it has been significantly improved. Tons of fan options. Filter that covers the entire front face and an added filter on the bottom below the power supply. These filters WORK and keep dust out of the case!
Pros: Quite with all fans in place Runs cool Works perfectly with the following hardware: HeatSink and fan - N82E16835103108 Ram - N82E16820231797 850w PSU Case - N82E16811129180 EVGA GTX 980TI Superclocked ACX cooler Two areas for SSDs that don't need to be mounted in the 3.5" bays
