I concur. I hate the exteriors of the 200 / 600 and prefer much more the 300/900/1200's. Nothing tops the p18x series though. So elegant and clean. I want a computer not a carnival.

I completely agree as well, although a part of me thinks the P18x series cases look like mini-fridges.

omg, a antec 300 with a fan controller and a plastic(?) window.

Those front intake dual fans are just terrible, I specially hate it when you use a cheap fan on it, it triples the dba of the original fan with all those grills and a filter . And still no cable holes......

Excellent eye! ...and you're right, zero space for cables I neglected to mention that.
