This time I purchased eight of these cases to build PC for a school. My experience was much different than last time (see my old review below) with a micro ATX motherboard instead of an ATX motherboard. This is a beautiful, easy to work with case when using a micro ATX motherboard.
Putting a build together with the smaller motherboard is a snap. Antec supplies endless amount of screws and everything you need for the build. The excellent EA-380D power supply is included. There are lot of thoughtful design features like a bay to store the power supply cables that aren't used, rubber grommets for mounting hard drives to keep them quiet and no sharp edges to cut fingers on. The case itself is very nice looking and sturdy.
Here's a step-by-step for how I build with this case:
- Unscrew the two thumbscrews from the back, slide off the top and then lift off the two sides.
- Empty the screw bag into a bowl, lie the case on its side and screw in the motherboard standoffs according to the motherboard layout.
- Pop out the I/O shield (I still don't understand the purpose of this throw-away item) and put in the I/O shield from the motherboard.
- Install the motherboard, making sure nothing catches inside the ethernet jack, HDMI port, USB ports, etc.
- Install the CPU and memory.
- Slide the hard drive into the top 3.5" bay with rubber grommets and screw in one side
- Slide the optical drive into the top 5.25" and screw in one side
- Turn the case over to the other side and screw in the other side of the hard drive and optical drive. For the hard drive, this requires a magnetic screwdriver (or optionally, remove drive cage)
- Sit the case upright and untie the power supply, keeping the tie.Read more ›
I find the size of the case to be very nice, I have built systesm using Antec's NSK-1380, NSK-3480 and Solo cases. I would choose this case over the NSK-1380 and 3480 because the extras space inside makes them much nicer to work with, even though the cases take up more space. The Solo has a few more bells and whistles but you don't get the included power supply. This case is also slightly smaller than the Solo.
My only cons: I like that the finish of the case is matte and not shiny, it doesn't attract fingerprints like other black Antec cases I've owned. The downside is that the matte finish doesn't wipe clean as easily as a glossy finish. Also, the front USB ports were a bit wobbly on my case - not sure if that is typical or just on my sample.
One final item: The Antec website states that this case has USB 3.0 ports on the front. This was not true of my sample, however I suspect that Antec has created a new version of this case and the earlier (non-USB 3.0) version is still in circulation. The case was not advertised on Amazon as having USB 3.0 ports so this is not a Con; just be aware of the possibility in case USB 3.0 is very imporatant to you.
No flimsy "tooless" component attachment "features", just good old fashioned screws (supplied with cabinet).
As received from United Parcel Service, the outer shipping box appeared perfect, but when opened it was noted that the original factory box containing the cabinet was torn in several places with one large tear over a goodly sized dent in one side cover. This was obviously damage caused by the vendor and had to be obvious to him as it was being placed into the outer shipping carton before being turned over to UPS for shipping. I have seen other reviews describing this same problem. Was this vendor selling low cost "damaged at factory" goods and representing them as NEW?
Pretty much disappointed. W. W. H.
The top and side covers slip off and on very easily and all three removable covers are secured by just two thumb screws near the top of the case on its back side. The front panel snaps off and back on easily too. All the metal edges are nicely finished so you don't need to be cautious of getting your fingers sliced while working inside. The heft of the this case is nice and heavy so you feel like it is a quality product, even though the price is quite reasonable. Since I live on Molokai Hawaii, getting free shipping from Amazon on this PC case really made my purchase an even better deal.

Let's begin with the obvious, this is a full-sized tower, so if you are looking for something small to use as a HTPC case, this is not it. Read morePublished on December 2, 2012 by C. J. Alvarez
