I'd go the 690, but that's because I don't like having to open doors to access my optical drives. I use them quite often!

The phantom is pretty.
The 690 is easy to work with.
I own both cases.
The Phantom is my current build.

I love my 690 II. I like it's basic outward appearance and the fact that it's not gaudy looking like most new cases. and it has great cable management,tool less drive bays,dust filters and good water cooling support.

I bought the 690II basic because i didn't need the two extra 5.25 tool less bays and the top hdd dock. but I do wish that the basic came with the 3.5" to 2.5" hdd adapter as I'm going to buy an ssd soon. but that can be bought from cooler master for cheap.

gotta go with the 690 II, im using it as my main right now, the case doesn't strive to have any fancy looks on the outside..but the inside is all business. i like to think of it as a 'sleeper'
