Such a big enclosure brings such great promise. Let's see if the Nineteen Hundred from Antec has it where it counts.

Oh I was right about this being the case that you were going to "talk" about. Can't watch the review (no sound at work, I'll watch it later) but I've read it through and I agree, its like a 900D from 2002-2006. Its a shame about the build quality being nothing special, as the cases I've used by them in the past have all been surprisingly well built, albeit lacking in the ol' cable management department. I do like the exterior (mainly because I like the enermax case it looks suspiciously alot like) but it costs too much for what it is. Poor show antec, you could've done much better . Their Gx700 is an underrated case, this however, is not.

I was actually looking forward to getting this and the green mesh option really caught my eye but after reading the review and watching the vid I think I'll stick with my 540.

This case would of been great in the early 2000's.

Would have been a good (albeit) expensive introduction to modding though :P.

Indeed, Although it seems to me that the designers were smoking crack when they built this thing because it's a massive pile of horse crap, Looks so cheap and nasty.

In a world where removable modular drive bays are common place it's also baffling to understand why Antec have chosen to rivet there's in place.
It's "theirs" instead of "there's".

What we have is a subjective review of a case that could have and should have been great but fell well short of the mark.
I think the proper word is "objective", not "subjective".
Nice review though.

I'm guessing it'll be one of those case that look better/worse in the flesh. Its how most of antec's stuff is really.

It could have been awesome - just such bad use of the space and massively lacking in options / features.

This case is godawfull, £235 for this? The only thing it has going for it is size, that is literally the only thing this case has to offer. So many cases for much cheaper or slightly more that offer so much more, that are actually well built and not flimsy pieces of crap.

Antec, pls.

That bit where you constantly repeated yourself bout the switch and the lower side panel made me laugh. Great award too.
