Default Antec Updates Mid-Range Six Hundred V2 Case

Let's play a little game of spot the differences. Antec has announced this morning its V2 version of the Antec Six Hundred case, which for those keeping score at home, makes four cases that have received "updates" and of course new prices so far this year.

As much as people hated the original Antec 900, IMO it was the "best" Gamer case Antec has made to date. They seem to only get uglier.

Default Seriously Antec?

I just went to the Antec website and compared the feature list of both cases, and the only difference between V1 and V2 is that V2 has an external hot swap 2.5 inch bay, whereas the V1 has a 3.5 inch hot swap bay. Also, the V2 now has one bottom mounted spot to internally put a 2.5 inch drive.

This makes me sad.
