Default TheTechLounge reviews Antec Nine Hundred gaming case

"Antec has built their reputation and great following by making conservative cases with outstanding build quality and a mind for acoustics. Even their portable, LAN-centric designs are utile and relatively subtle.

The gamer case market is flooded with lesser names and less expensive, if garish, enclosures. What Antec doesn't do often, is change. When some people say timeless, others say dated. Their innovations rarely permeate through to the outsides of their cases, and itís safe to say theyíre not likely to fix what ainít broke.

The Nine Hundred is a gamerís case; itís a surprise to see them drive with the body kit, phat pipe and ground lights guys. Will it deliver on the good construction by which Antec has made their name? Is it at all possible for it to manage the kind of silence that theyíre renowned for?


How will the Nine Hundred do with the stylings? I can't really rate it on its looks. But I can tell you if it has style over substance, if it's industrial design or just surface excitement and bling. Will it be edgy or hokey? The case is at a price point where many competitors can beat it with over-the-top trim and of course, inexpensive construction. How does it compare?"
