I love my P180, since it has been so versatile for me when upgrading, i have not had to replace a genuine awesome case, As the P280 has similar features it would be a considerable nice upgrade for all P180 lovers. My Antec power supplies has been superb in my DIY server cases, no hiccups or issues.
I always like Antec's 900 and 1200 cases, never got around to buying one because I got a Stacker 810 for pretty cheap. But if I were to buy one now, I would probably get a 900 or 1200. My brother had the 850 quattro or w/e they were called and it was a pretty good power supply. I like their HCP line though, might get one of those.
Still running my Antec Sonata III, well built product that I've never felt like I needed to upgrade. And bonus for making 80 Plus Platinum power supplies with wattages for normal non-hardcore-gaming folk.
I rocked my P180 then went to the 900. Power supplies have been top notch but most of all when I contacted customer service when I lost the particular screws for the 900 cases they shipped em to me on there dime. Quality customers service make me choose their products every time.
Antec has been for me, a really good value. The company seems dedicated to high quality and diverse and cost effective products. The cases, fans, and PSUs are reliable and quiet. Never had a problem with Antec quality. I tend to go with the larger cases for the extra room, cable routing, and airflow. I really like the tool-less case designs and modular PSUs which save a lot of mess, time and headache.
I need these because my current powersupply is almost as old as I am, and I live in constant fear of it blowing up, taking out the building I live in and all of my files, many of which I've been to slack in backing up.
Plus, my LianLi case uses funny threaded thumbscrews, which I've lost, the power supply keeps sliding around whenever it gets moved. Its just not safe.
So I really need anything I can get.
Plus, thanks to Antec and you guys at H for a contest that us New Zealanders can enter
I have an old Antec case... I've put it through the ringer... busted the door off, dented scratched and rusting... but its been dropped, under water kicked sat on and left outside. all that considered... its in good shape.
I have a lil antec PSU in my HTPC... it works... dont realy know its even there... so it gets my thunbs up.
I like Antec, not just because of the good quality cases and PSU's. But actually their environmental approaches such as cardboard protection for packaging, and making the first affordable mainstream Platinum PSU's (Earthwatts platinum). Go Antec!
I own a DF-85 and a True Power supply and have never went back. I praise their stuff because my case was affordable and I can stack it up with drives and it stays quiet and the power supply has trucked on for over 2 years without making a peep and the combination has seen 4 rebuilds and the only thing i kept was my case and my PSU.
Thank Honey Badgers for Antec for how much money they have saved me, they just take what they want.
From the SX1030 to the Eleven Hundred, every Antec case I've used over the years has been perfect. Their designs and innovations have carried the industry forward and will continue to do so in the future.
