Great Personal PC Case
Strengths: Great airflow though case; very quiet, speed controllable fans; Removable 3.5" drive bays; and power/reset button and port(USB/1394)location.
Weakness: The blue LEDs are a bit bright. Floppy Drive adapter.
I would have to say that when I bought this case I was very excited about it because of the great reviews it had and that my current system is a heat nightmare (55C sys. temp. w/ old case's side cover on). But as an engineer in the aerospace industry, I was skeptical about it's design for air flow. I thought the power supply would be starved for air and have heat dissipation issues. I was...

I would have to say that when I bought this case I was very excited about it because of the great reviews it had and that my current system is a heat nightmare (55C sys. temp. w/ old case's side cover on). But as an engineer in the aerospace industry, I was skeptical about it's design for air flow. I thought the power supply would be starved for air and have heat dissipation issues. I was absolutely shocked, after 1 month of use, this case keeps my system about 15C cooler than the case it was in before, and there are still 2 locations for extra fans not being used and the power supply shows no overheating issues at all! The fans are whisper quiet and there is a breeze that comes out of the 200mm top fan!
I had no issues with graphics connections as mentioned in other reviews. The 5.25" floppy drive adapter was mildly difficult to install, but worked well enough. The removable drive bays for 3.5" drives made hard drive installation quick and painless. I have been building computers for 6-7 years now and I would say for a personal PC case, this one would rank up there with some of the Lian Li cases as far as aesthetic appeal and cooling efficiency.
Wiring is not difficult, but take a little more planning than normal to get all the cables tidy due to the unorthodox power supply location.

Strengths: EZ setup
Weakness: Pervert advertising blerb. "Now you can own any noob ever spawned" Are they selling to Jeffery Dahmer?
Great cooling. Cool Startrek Borg spaceship presence. I am assimilated. I don't really like that the power supply is on the bottom. I have a Corsair HX520 that normally sucks air from the bottom. It must be mounted upside down.

Hands down THE BEST case I've ever owned!!!
Strengths: Looks cool, incredible cooling, solidly built, 200mm fan!
Weakness: dust magnet, a bit expensive, DVI flaw, 200mm fan hard to find
Wow! This case is awesome! Two 120mm fans in the front blowing right on the two harddrive cages, one 120mm fan in rear and one HUGE 200mm fan up top to exhaust heat, and an optional 120mm fan on the side and on the top HDD cage for extra air movement. Conveniently placed buttons and ports on top. Handy slot for storage. Only thing is I can't put external drives on top of my PC anymore b/c I would...

Wow! This case is awesome! Two 120mm fans in the front blowing right on the two harddrive cages, one 120mm fan in rear and one HUGE 200mm fan up top to exhaust heat, and an optional 120mm fan on the side and on the top HDD cage for extra air movement. Conveniently placed buttons and ports on top. Handy slot for storage. Only thing is I can't put external drives on top of my PC anymore b/c I would block the 200mm fan. Many people who have seen my case in my room have complimented it.
This case will get dirty quick, due to having no filters. I take it into the garage every 2-3 weeks and blow it out with my air compressor to avoid dust buildup, so no problems for me there. The old revision of this case has a flaw in which a DVI connector will not be able to connect if your video card sits in the first open slot in the back, which mine doesn't. Antec has quickly remedied this issue, I think, and recalled the old versions off store shelves. Owners of old revisions have also reported finding resolution by calling Antec. I have not called them, so I can't say how they would take care of you. Look for rev 1.01 under the UPC on the box, that should be the new revision.
As always, the case went on sale the week after I bought it, PLUS there was a rebate...DOH!!! I bought it online, so the return hassle was not worth it. I wanted to wait for the price to drop at first, but a case like this is hard to resist. I also worry how I would replace the 200mm fan if it ever goes out. Antec sells it (it's called Big Boy 200) for $25 plus $9 shipping...a bit expensive, I think.
But overall, I have no regrets getting this case. It is easily the best case I've owned. My other case is an Antec Super LanBoy, so I'm very happy with Antec products so far. So buy this case, it goes on sale occasionally for $60-$80 after mail-in rebate.

Antec Nine Hundred Case
Strengths: Case is nice and sturdy. It comes with 2 front 120mm, 1 rear 120mm, and 1 200mm fan on the top. All the fans comes with 3 speed control switch. This help cool my temp down by 5-10C.
Weakness: The power supply is all the way at the bottom. Make sure your power supply wires are long enough to plug everything in. It is somewhat loud if you put your fans on high.
Antec make great cases and power supplies. I never had any problems with any of their products. If you looking for cooling, I would recommend the nine hundred. If you care about silent pc, I would recommend the P180.

Antec 900 Review
Strengths: 1. Top control buttons and ports. 2. Removable drive cages. 3. Ventilation and cooling. 4. Aesthetic.
Weakness: 1. Needs a magnetic screwdriver (otherwise extremely difficult to install drives) 2. The length of the cords from the power/reset button and USB/firewire port on the case is short.
Overall a good buy with a nice professional look and sturdy built. However, please note that you do need a magnetic screwdriver if you are planning to buy this case.
