Excerpt: Honey, I Shrunk The Nine Hundred Antec is an equally well-known brand as Cooler Master and the rest. We have already tested one of their entry-level cases — the NSK4400. The Antec Three Hundred is a more robust and well-built case.
Summary: Antec Three Hundred is an inexpensive mini-tower case targeted to exigent users. Here is a summary of what we found about this case.
In summary, this case provides a terrific cost/benefit ratio for mainstream users looking for a small yet powerful case.
Excerpt: We find ourselves wondering how a company like NZXT can do a better job of creating a budget version of Antec’s gamer line than Antec itself. That’s not to say the Three Hundred is a bad case; it just has little that’s special.
Pros: Serviceable no-frills case; plenty of fan space.
Cons: No-frills means no frills; a bit cramped; minimal front-panel inputs; front fans are strictly BYO; no lights, no windows.
Excerpt: Antec has three premium lines of consumer computer cases in it's roster: Performance One, Sonata and Gamer. We've already looked at cases from the Performance One and Sonata lines and those cases left with many awards and high ratings. So now all that's left is a look at Antec's Gamer line of cases.
Conclusion: Usually when you buy a case that is cheap, that is exactly what you get: "cheap". This is not the case with the Three Hundred. What you get with the Three Hundred is quality construction, top notch aesthetics, and airflow to die for.
Summary: Overall, I was very impressed with this case. This case targets the budget crowd for only around $50.00 in US funds. Considering that cost, this case brings a ton of features to the table. Outstanding thermal performance at stock, with the ability to mount even more fans.
Pros: +High quality construction, +Low Price, +Included fans 120mm, 140mm three speed, +Mid tower size but plenty of build room for a full setup, +Cooling expandability Room for additional 120mm fans, +Overall ease of Installation
Cons: -No noise dampening, -No screw less features
