Default Antec One Review Comment Thread

Antecís One may only cost $60 but it boasts a great feature set, plenty of fan options and the exterior design isn't particularly offensive like some competing cases. However, with Corsair's 200R and several other cases breathing down their necks, Antec has a lot to prove with this one.

Having built a few dozens rigs in this case, it's a very nice case, a solid choice for it's price.

Even compared to more fully featured cases like the Corsair 200r?

Would much rather have a 200r or even a bitfenix shinobi.

200R is perhaps it's biggest competitor right now but it's more expensive over here. Also the pictures don't do any justice to the Antec, it's surprisingly well built and thought out.

Looks fine to me. I wouldn't have any issue recommending one for a budget build if the price is right. That said I think I also prefer the 200R (though it has a few short falls as well IMO).
