depends on what you want it for. That case cools great and is roomy. It's also well built thus being heavy. You can probably find one just as roomy that cools well for cheaper but maybe not as sturdy, but in the end are you going to stand on your case either? I mean are you looking for a case that cools well or what?

I think the Antec P150 / Solo are comparable cases, they match the theme, and are kind of seen as the improved P180. Slightly less roomy, but less problematic also. P150 comes with a good quality power supply so that's a very good deal for a case like that.

I want a well built case that will last at least five years easy. I also want something that is roomy and great for cooling. I have the 180 and am building one for someone and just was curious what everyone thought about cases.

I personally like this one. If you don't like the purple disk they are interchangeable so you can put any colored **** in there that you can buy from best buy. Also It isn't plastic at all. made with silver and aluminum. This is the case I am going to buy after I get my monitors.
