Default Antec 200, looking promising.

This has a really nifty feature where you can plug a HDD directly into the front to back it up. That wins. Looks pretty ventilated too.

Check out the video here:

I've liked the looks of the antecs but just like the 300 this seems too small.

Might be alright for a basic build but it will be cramped once you start adding in sound cards etc,The only thing that looks alright about this case to me is the HDD plug

Well for a machine with a bunch of stuff, a case with room is a necessity, of course. But for general builds, even the 300 has enough space, but some people like having loads of space.

The HDD plug is awesome though.

im on my 2nd 300, i could agree that it could use some more room top to bottom and a few inches front to back.

but i would not call it small, its much larger than alot of cases that dell tosses at the average user. its a mid tower with a "mini" tower lable.

with that said, my next case will be larger, as this 300 is too small to support 3way gpu solution (the 3rd would rub against the psu)


as far as the 200 goes, the front panel looks bad to me.
but the rest of the case, looks like a nice improvment over the 300.
i like the whole behind the cpu, i like the fan switches on the back, the front hdd thing isnt anything i would use.

for $50-60 its a nice case.

YHA more rear end area would be nice. I like the cables behind the tray better, than off to the side

Looks promising, but what I didn't get was the hard drive in the front thing (in the video)

and nice for Cable Management
