Amazing case

This case offers a great premium look and is just so quiet due to the noise dampening features. The actual chassis is very sturdy and solid and the door will last for years and years, maybe even through a nuke attack its that strong. Airflow is better than expected too, and the inside is a delight to work with, it oodles space and is very well contructed.

One of the best cases on the market for a more professional look.
10 out of 10 for me.

Really good

This case is fab. Looks very stylish and feels very sturdy. Inside is all painted and has no rough edges.

Only criticism is that the USB and audio header leads are short making it tricky to do some decent cable management.

Other than that, this case gets 5 stars.

What a bargain

I bought one of the 280's recently to replace my Sonata 550, which had gotten too small for many modern video cards.

The 280 is as you'd expect from Antec, well thought out. and solidly constructed, and it feels very roomy when working on it.
The fans work well, whilst being very quiet, and the cable management options mean you're able to hide most of the cabling (even when you've got 6-7 drives) out of sight, and where they don't interfere with the airflow in the case.
The ability to clean the dust filters without opening the case up is a nice touch to make maintenance easier.

Overall a very nice case, and one I'd not hesitate to recommend to friends.

Perfect

I love this case. Everything fits nice and tidy inside and its subtle on my desk. Cool and hardly makes any sound with my overclocked i5 inside.

Great Case

Upgraded to the commodious P280 from an old Sonata that was getting a bit rickety in its old age.
Case is well put together and had no issues with any of the fittings or finishing, although I understand others have experienced some issues.
Definitely recommend making sure your ATX and ATX_12v connectors are long enough if you plan to route cables behind the tray - my 12v only made it at a stretch over the gfx card... or considering buying extensions.
Only other issue is that the front top-mounted far is a bit noisy compared to the other two, but only when you switch it to the faster setting using the provided back-panel-mounted controller. It looks as though it lacks the structural support afforded to the rear-most fan and can cause a noticeable hum. Did try to move it to one of the front fan mounts, but you'll need a 18" extension lead if you're going to connect it back to the controller.
An excellent quiet case if you don't want a window and lots of light shining out of it...

Great case

I recently upgraded to the P280 from an old trusty P160 which was a great case just getting a bit long in the tooth.

The P280 is so easy to work with tons of room, and having room to pull cable behind the motherboard tray is so good compared to the old P160.

All the fans in the case are quiet and as long as the fans you add are also quiet ones this case will be great for your ears.

If you are looking at a roomy case with good cable routing capabilities and good air flow you wont go wrong with the P280

Get One

Ordered one of these for my New GTX680/I7 3770k build and all I can say is:-

"GET ONE"

So easy to install components and cable management is superb

Great buy

Antec do it again

Purchased this to house a 3930K based system cooled with a Corsair H100. Lots of room inside good cable management and very quiet. Knocked a star off because the finishing on some of the fold/rivets at the bottom rear of the case are not aligned.

 
Erik 2012-01-16

Love this case

This was replacing a previous Antec case which had been noisy but the fans on this are so quiet. The case seems to have loads of room inside and it is so easy to fit disks inside.

Worthy P Series Case

Was eager to get my hands on one of these after having had a P190 back in the day, which was definitely the best case I ever owned - besides the cramped insides which caused me to get rid!

I have only just kitted out my Cosmos S with a full set of AP-15s, and I still took the plunge. A decision I am more than happy with.

Great sound dampening, oodles of cable routing on the offside - around an inch of space to play with - and of course all that room! Rivets look a little amateurish, but the case feels rock solid and is very light considering its size.

The HDD bays are well designed, although the 5.25's a little confusing until you slide something in there and will only work with full-length bay devices unless you remove the clips - which by the way come off in one piece unlike those in the Cosmos S.

Definitely need a 24v extender for this one if you're routing cables around the back, but beyond that a near-perfect case well worthy as an upgrade from any of the P series cases.
