As I write this, Amazon has no information posted about what this Antec Solo "Quiet Mini Tower Case" is. So, as a stop-gap until I can get some pictures posted and a proper review written, here's the information directly from Antec's spec sheet:

Case Dimensions: 17.5"(H) x 8.1"(W) x 18.5"(D)

Drive Bays: 8
- Front Accessible: 3x5.25", 1x3.5"
- Internal: 4x3.5" or 3x3.5" with HDD suspension

Expansion Slots: 7

Cooling System:
- 1 rear (standard) 120mm TriCool Fan with 3-speed switch control
- 2 front 92mm fan mounts (fans not included)

Main Board Size: 12"(W)x9.6"(L)

Weight (net/gross): 25.3/30.3 lbs, 11.5/15.7 K

Motherboards: Standard ATX (web site says also microATX)

Special Features:
- Internal mounts with rubber grommets
- Optional HDD suspension system
- Poly carbonate side panels to reduce noise
- Advanced cable management system
- Front USB/FireWire Ports

Package Includes:
- 1 Tower Case
- 1 set of screws and motherboard standoffs
- 1 Installation manual

I've provided Amazon with a link to Antec's product brochure, but it hasn't shown up yet. Go to the Antec site (obvious URL) and navigate through Products -> Enclosures -> LifeStyle Series -> Solo for more information.

In a nutshell, this is a very nice, black, heavy, steel (not aluminum) mini-tower case designed specifically for quiet operation. Some of the highlights are 1) the sound deadening insulation on the side panels, 2) an included drive suspension system for decoupling the hard drive from the chasis, 3) a 120mm low RPM exhaust fan, and 4) the ability to add your own, quiet, efficient power supply (I'll be adding a Seasonic S12-430).

Wanted to add my own little review of the Antec Solo case for people so that it may help them. I ordered mine with free super saver shipping. It arrived in 3 days, shipping from Pennsylvania to Raleigh, NC.

It was shipped in a large cardboard box with packing paper stuffed between it and the retail box. The manual can be found inside the upper case holder.

After taking off the plastic, a stunningly beautiful case is revealed.

The case has thumbscrews for the left side panel that do not disconnect from the panel. This way you can't lose them. The right side panel is held by regular screws. I first found the loose drive rails and took them out of the case. I installed the power supply. You have to hold the PSU in place and screw at the same time; because there is very little metal to hold the it in place. I screwed in 5 more motherboard mounts for my standard ATX MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (I already had the CPU and cooler installed). Then, I dropped the motherboard down onto the mounts. It was a very tight fit to drop it down. You cannot fit both hands on either side and drop it down. I had to turn the board diagonal to fit it down there and even hold it by the CPU heatsink for a second. No damage though.

I then hooked up all the case cables for the front. They were excessively long; however this came in useful for me with the audio and firewire cables for which the ports are at the rear of the motherboard. The cable management hooks were an incredibly useful feature.

I then installed the optical and floppy drive. The front bezel can be removed by pushing the 3 black tabs through the left side towards you and swinging the front bezel towards the right side of the case. Then lift up and it comes off its hinges.

This case, the Antex Solo, is a good choice for a medium duty computer. Every aspect of the case exemplifies quality, from the finish on the exterior to the provision of a cable management area to the drive mountings. About the only thing to complain about is the lack of a motherboard tray. The SOLO is the black version of the P150 and comes without a PSU. The color is very black with a very high gloss finish. The front panel is silver plastic with black trim. It swings open to allow access to the two 92mm intake fans with their washable filter and behind those, the bank of 3.5" drives. You can mount either four in the provided trays with their acrylic mounting grommets or three suspended in elastic bands. There are four slots for 5.25" drives one of which has an adaptor for a 3.5" drive. These slots are exposed to the front. The front panel also features two USB ports and one FireWire port, mic and headphone plugs, the power and reset buttons (indirectly lit with blue LED) and the drive indicator with its blue LED. The left side panel comes off with the unscrewing of two captive thumb screws to allow access to the main bay. There is adequate room for just about any PSU, I used an Antec NeoHE 550. At the back there is a mounting for a 120 mm exhaust fan. There are 8 expansion slots. The right side panel also removes to provide access to the cable management area. This consists of a series of hooks to wind up excess cable on before it goes into the main bay for connection. The construction of the case is steel and soundproofing coatings have been added to the major interior surfaces. The one aspect of the case I felt could be improved was the lack of separation of the PSU from the main bay so it would not be sucking up hot air to try to cool itself with.Read more ›
