Excerpt: I've got to say, for the money, you don't get a better case than this. It doesn't have features that some of the expensive cases have, such as tool-less assembly, but for the money, it is easy, clean, and solid in construction. My company has bought over 50 of these and we've only had maybe one arrive dented or damage. Antec is a company that specializes in cases above anything else. Trust in their design!
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet, Reliable
Summary: Decent basic case, but I expected a bit more quality from Antec. The metal is flimsy, bends really easy and can vibrate from the fan if it gets bent while building. Could probably find a more solid case for not much more $.
Pros: Cheap case, good price.
Cons: Quality not very good, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: *Update* I initially gave this case a 5 star review (see orginal review below), but it just got demoted after working with a second one. The thin metal was bent near the rear case fan, making the I/O plate not fit in right (and I couldn't correct it). And two of the motherboard spacer holes are stripped because the metal is so thin. I'm not willing to use this case for client builds anymore, and would give it 2 stars if I could be bothered to find my order #.
Pros: Inexpensive. Reasonably classy looking.
Cons: Thin metal causes multiple issues (noted below).
Summary: for the price and includings gift keyboard and mouse nothing else can beat. people complain the metal is sharp around the IO shield and PSU. it's not as sharp as knife but just don't slide too quickly with finger in that area. after install everything i realized there is a small cut on arm but no big deal. once put together it is extremely safe and sturdy. there are some holes which you can route the panel connectors and sata cables to keep them out of airflow's way.
Pros: -decent build quality, -very good paint job, -front panel is well made and looks awesome, -connectors are of very high quality, -light overall yet very rigid side panels., -front audio out has no static at all, better than my thermaltake level 10gt. but that could be because of the motherboard (H61M-P31/W8)
Cons: -no thumb screws anywhere even the side panel, -the fan is moderate sound. recommend move it to the front as intake. better thermal and less noise., -use the smaller screws (not the psu type) for the motherboard mounting. took me a while to figure out as there are many different type of screws included and some are not familiar type.
Summary: Denna ANTEC datorlåda är lätt att arbeta med då man bygger en dator! Inga svårigheter att få dit nätagg, moderkort (m-atx), hårddisk, optisk enhet. Möjligen att det kunde ha fått vara ytterligare någon millimeter längst ner, då moderkortet jag valde har en expansionsplats längst ner, som jag förmodligen aldrig kommer att ha nytta av pga platsbrist. Dock kan nog ett tunt kort fungera.
