[PG] Antec 200 V2

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Antec Two Hundred V2 is made for basic users. We installed fairly high end hardware with a big CPU cooler and it
handled all of it nicely. Though, cable management is a big issue. Absence of cable management holes make interior look very cluttered and also effects airflow. A couple of holes would have done the job.

Case come with gray interior, this isn’t something many people like. Black interior is essential these days.

Antec did a very good job by putting a hot-swappable 2.5” drive bay on front. This feature isn’t found in most of the basic cases these days.

I understand they are Pakistani, but if they insist on writing in English I wish they would go over their articles before posting them... Affect =/= Effect

As for the case, that front looks extremely out-of-place... Just doesn't belong IMO.

Still as ugly as the first one.

U-G-L-Y Antec's got no alibi, it's UGLY! damn, its UGLY.

Damn, why would someone buy this over the CM ELite series, or over the cooltek K3 Evo?

While this case doesn't seem to be THAT bad, a quick search on NCIX showed me that for about 20 bucks less you can get the coolermaster elite 330 case. With that said, what was the point of this case then :S

It's only $15 cheaper than my Solano, and my Solano blows this thing away in every regard. At the price its listed for, and the quality of the case, I can't see this selling at all. Theres simply too much competition in this price range for cases that are far superior to this case. I think its a hands down loser.

I knew how cheap,crappy, and overpriced Antec was the day I traded in my Antec 900 for a CM 690 II. This thing just lowers the standard.
