Cable management. All of their cases (especially around the $100 to $150 price point) have atrocious cable management. Internal USB3.0 of course but don't make it an uber long header that can reach out the back of my case and back in.

Just because they responded doesn't mean Antec will do anything about what you say. Most of their cases still lack acceptable cable management, perpendicular drive bays, tool less 3.5" and 5.25" systems, 7+1 pci slot design, ect, ect. Those features are just the basics, too. If they ever want to get back in the game they'd have to completely scrap and redo their entire chassis division, which is what they should've done a while ago.

The 2 new cases they have coming out, the P280 and 1100 actually look like decent cases. Course I thought the Lanboy Air was an interesting case as well so I might not be a good judge on cases .

Thanks for posting the photos.

It's about time they make a case that one can point the PSU fan downwards that'll actually draw fresh air and it looks to be filtered - my oh my Antec must have been working overtime to include these things - lol!

Looks like from the one interior photos that it has some decent cable management.

I'm looking for a case without a front door that has the Power Switch, etc,.......on the front top.

Let's see how these really are once they come out with their reviews and pricetag.

EDIT: looks like the Power and Reset button are on the top/top not on the front panel = fail for my wants.
Oh well looks like another company will get my business then - lol!

I wish manufacturers would quit destroying side windows with fan mounts.

FusterCluck, that last image is interesting. It shows more than two extra inches ABOVE the motherboard. I've been asking for that in cases for a long time.

Indeed, that is really nice to have for internal radiators. I really like what i'm seeing in the P280. The only real feature I don't see that I would like is having the HDD/SSD bays be removable for longer GPU's if you have them.

Love my 1200 as well but their cases have become stagnant and boring. It's time to change it up a bit antec.

I'm gonna repeat what others have said:

Cable management.

Less plastic on the gamer cases.

Support for normal PSUs (fan intaking from the bottom).

Besides that, maybe drop the doors? They have flashy gamer cases and minimalistic cases with front doors, nothing minimalistic without a door. I know a lot of people hate having to work with a case that has a door.

Painted interiors (they already have that on Dark Fleet series).
