What does less than $100 get you among todayís selection of cases? Believe it or not, there are quite a few options like Corsair's Carbide 200R and BitFenix's Raider come immediately to mind. Antecís One is their newest entry into the low cost market but its price of just $60 makes this one of the least expensive entry level enclosures around.

By building upon successes that can be traced back to the original Sonata line (an enclosure which literally defined a while generation of products), Antec is hoping the One will appeal to entry level gamers who would rather spend their money on higher performance components instead of a larger options.

When shopping for a case, not everyone is looking for unlimited water cooling options, tons of interior space or space-age materials. Many of us tend to shop for a good balance of features, durability, looks and price so thereís a huge cross-section of the market that should greet the One with open arms.


Antec has designed the One in such a way that it looks relatively neutral, although the gaping front grille may be a bit off-putting for some. It does however boast plenty of fan options, tool-less hard drive installation and enough horizontal space for most graphics cards.

With that being said, several sacrifices have been made in order to hit such a low price point. The One is on the small side, the expansion slot covers have to be permanently removed. But that doesnít mean Antec hasnít put forward a winning design.
