A lot better looking than pictures suggeWhen many see the P193 the 1st comment is "the side fan, it's ugly!" I think Antec would be better making the case 2 inches wider. BUT.. the case is blacker than pictures show, and it's honestly better looking than you'd think!
I considered the Coolermaster RC1000 range before this. The P193 includes better cable management (decent room at the back!), better fans (the 4 are relatively quiet on anything but high, and shift a decent amount of air), and has good front ventilation (the front may be less sleek, but it needed air!) for your HD's.
So why this and not a P183? Simple.. this is deep enough to use full length cards like bigger Nvidias, and still use the middle drive bay - with room to spare!
A word of caution. Even with the side fan on the outside my Noctua NH-U12P heatsink JUST fits. It actually makes contact with the side fan, but doesn't impede it. If your heatsink is even 2mm taller than this Noctua it won't make it. So check measurements if you have a huge heatsink!

Great Airflowthe huge 200mm Fan on the side door is the first thing you should see this has its own dust filter and a speed setting of high, medium or low.
The airflow seems superior to that of the P182 (I have a P182 in the house hold), This is a big case over the P182, lengthways mostly.
The only issues I have is my OCZ 600W PSU doesnt have long enough cables to reach the CPU 4pin motherboard connection, In the end I had to wire my own extension in (through impatience of ordering one).
Actually, the PSU cables in general where perfectly suited to fitting the motherboard but only if it was at the top so the PSU being on the bottom make a little bit of wire pulling and modification (for me).
Also although the case is brilliant at keeping things cool (and relatively quiet) anything but the lowest fan speeds will make the thing hum like a server, so not as silent as it boasts.
All in all a great buy but a couple of design flaws (not any different the the P182) hence the 4 and not 5 stars.
