agree, the ONLY issue they've fixed is the fan in the middle of the lower compartment.

everything else goes to the saying of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
-the door is ugly
-where's the top wing gone?
-if you going to make it like p180mini. at least put a 200mm fan on top
-why lower the PSU stand?
-it'd be as noisy as other cases without the nice door and the grill

Antec made the P183 ugly.

Sonata looks decent. Would still prefer the older one though.
The sonata and P182 were supposed to be slim cases that looked nice while still having good airflow. Now, after adding vents, they're no longer the good looking cases. You might as well turn it into an Antec 1200 mini.
