Summary: It's a really solid case. It housed everything I wanted it to. My only gripe is that the PSU is mounted on the bottom, whereas I'm used to putting it near the top of the case. I guess thats a personal preference though. I suppose that may help with cooling the PSU... anyway, solid case.
Summary: Nice case and lots of room. Love the black mesh that is on the front. The power switch seems to be a little flimsy, but does the job. The fan on the top of the case is controlled by a 3 position switch. If you leave the switch on low the fan will not spin and makes a intermittent whining sound. I keep the speed on medium and works fine. Both fans are quite and seem to work well.
Summary: Mounting a card-reader (that is the form-factor of an old floppy) in a 5¼″ bay requires a suitable bracket that also allows it to be mounted forward so the panel is flush with the outer case. Looking at others that claimed to support card readers, I was dissuaded by reviews of poor quality. Then I found this one, and indeed it is well made, out of heavy gauge sheet metal and is in fact more robust that strictly necessary.
Summary: It's designed for the Antec 300 case but I adapted it to my Corsair 500R and it looks and works great. The front mesh closely matches the mesh facing on the 500R case. I first had to lightly grind off the small metal strips of mesh that were bent over the sides and then reduce the overall width by shaving just a smidgen of the plastic as well. The lock clips for the face plate don't quite match the depth of the case facing so it doesn't lock into place.
Pros: Does just what it is supposed to do after some modifications.
Cons: From what I'm reading, it sounds like it needs some coaxing, even with an Antec case. I spent about an hour getting the adapter to work for me but, since my case is not an Antec 300, I expected to have to make some modifications.
Pros: Best option I could find to mount an internal USB Card reader in my NZXT Phantom case. Faux wire mesh is somewhat similar in appearance to the Phantom's 5.25 bay covers. Only other viable option was a rather cheap looking plastic adapter that would have cheapened the overall appearance of an otherwise attractive case.
Cons: This is designed to match the Antec 30300 case, and as such is not a perfect fit for my case. The front bezel does not attach to the tray which the 3.5 in. device is mounted on. Also, the device tray does not have holes in it, so you will need to drill two small holes in order to use the tool-less mount in the NZXT. Make sure you measure accurately the depth of the tray before you snap on the front bezel, as it is slightly wider than standard and is a pain to get back...
Summary: I bought this case to replace a very old one I had from back in the single core days, that just wasn't cutting it any longer. I have to say I couldn't have been more pleased with it. The setup and the airflow of this case is fantastic! I live in a very dusty area which in turn means constantly dusting out the internal components of the computer.
Summary: I purchased one of these antec 300's around january of 2009 for a intel i7 920 build and pretty soon I'm going to buy a second one to do another build out of spare parts I have. These cases are a excellent value in feutures and in design looks but does have a few cons to keep note of.
