I pre-ordered this case, When receving the case, found out missing parts, bad QC,
some mobo standoff and one HD side bar missing, I called Amazon, they offer to take it back,
but the case is fine except the missing part, so I tried calling Antec, I am glad I did, I could speak to a representative in reasonable short time, very helpful and courteous, and I received the missing parts in the next few days,
excellent Antec customer service,
unlike Thermaltake, I purchased a Armor+ case, one rubber feet missing upon deliver, tried to contact them, Thermaltake never replied, so my Armor+ case still sitting on 3 rubber feet, although Armor+ is a great case even one feet short, but Thermaltake's customer service sucks, if anything missing on their product, there is no remedy, except returning to Amazon, Amazon is the best in taking care of problem.
After missing parts problem resolved promptly, I am extremely satisfied with Antec LanBoy, as well as Skeleton I purchase previously,
Antec has great customer service, and is trustworthy!

After being a PC user for more than 10 years I finally decided to take the plunge and build my first rig from scratch. The case is the last item I ordered from as planned. I already tested the system to be up and running before I put the components into the case. I also downloaded the installation manual from Antec's Web site before the case was delivered to familiarize myself with the procedures. I realized that there are almost endless possibilities with this case. To keep things easier for myself as a novice, I shot for the more 'conventional' set up. It took me a couple of hours to finish in the end. Some of that time was spent figuring out some nuts and bolts but generally the set up was straight forward. With all the excitement I managed to lose one of the pre-installed thumbscrews for a side panel. I meant to order a spare one from Antec via email and they sent me two for free. Hats off to the guys at Antec. I've been using the case ever since. Though I'm not a heavy gamer I pretty much have the PC on all the time when I'm home. It's working without a glitch and I don't reckon there's a problem with dust. Great product and service from Antec!

From installing the motherboard, to navigating a built pc, this case is a true joy to work with. Major awesome features:

1) Power supply slide out tray -- This made adding a power supply a ton easier and faster. And when the unit needs to be upgraded, it will be a snap.

2) Thumbscrews on everything -- Need to get access to a section in the case fast, this design makes it possible. Almost every screw that you will access can be manipulated with just your hands.

3) Lots of fans -- 15 possible 120mm fans!!! Whoa, this is some very serious cooling. The case comes with 5, and they are the two speed 120mm variety from Antec.

4) Straight path to the motherboard -- With this case you have direct, full access to the motherboard. No lips, sharp edges, or overhangs. The motherboard tray is removable but I doubt anyone will need it. Makes installing, or working with the components a snap.

5) Motherboard tray -- It has a hole in it! The spot where your proc will be mounted, there is a hole so that the dans will be able to cool the underside of your processor mount.

Bummer points:

a) Toolbox needs a real screwdriver to access it -- It fits snug, but when at a lan party, if not screwed in, you might loose it. These should be thumb screwed on.

Great case! Building this box to move around. So far love the handles, and how easy it is to work on the box. You won't be disappointed.

Initially I salivated over this case, the PROS: (1) obvious air flow, (2) modular design, and (3) general aesthetics left me extremely impressed and wondering why other companies hadn't incorporated more of Antec's winning design. I remain positive about the case; however, I could not use the case for it's original purpose for the reason's highlighted below; however, i was able to find a h20 cooling option (or I would have returned the case). I'll explain the reasons below that render the case a poor fit for some builds (mostly beginner to advanced h2o).

(1) Almost entirely *plastic* construction
- case wants to slide on most surfaces (must add sticky feet)
- somewhat limited options for mounting radiators/fans for liquid cooling (2 bay pre-built the only real option IMHO) Thermaltake BigWater 760 Plus CPU Cooler - CLW0211
-> Only 3 5.25" bays, which will be fully utilized by dual bay liquid + standard optical drive.
- somewhat lacking in durability, definitely lacking in protection from nearby physical play (kids, etc) and drink spills/spray (apparently a concern for some folks)
(2) Limited (or no) options for liquid cooling
- especially true for pre-built options like corsair H##'s)...DO NOT plan to use these (Not enough room above most MOBO's for internal placement, (partial) external just NOT possible.
- completely adhoc/custom liquid cooling can be made to work (120 or 240 rad on top with tube entry via add-on card thin tubes.

In the end, the case remains an attractive and reasonably priced option, and I'd certainly consider for a semi-mobile case...perhaps for a college student. The plastic makes it somewhat mobile.

Hope this helps, the reviews were noticeably lacking in the drawbacks of the case. The positives you can read in depth from the other many reviews.
