Antec Adds Two Chassis to Performance One Series

Antec has officially launched its P183 and P193 chassis as part of its Performance One series. While the units have been talked about for quite some time, the official launching was done on Tuesday.

Antec has retained the dual-chamber innards and other design features of its highly popular P182 and P180 chassis in the P183. The new chassis measures 54cm x 20.5cm x 50.7cm, weighs 14kg and offers seven expansion slots and 11 drive bays. These include four external 5.25in bays, an external 3.5in bay and six internal 2.5in bays.

Almost look-alikes, the major point of difference between the P182 and the P183 is that the latter offers only two fans as standard instead of the lower-front chamber, upper-front chamber and middle chamber fans in the former. With the exception of a 120mm fan at the rear and a 120mm rear up top, all other fans are now optional extras. To compensate for these, the chassis’ vents have been widened and additional vents provided on the front door to improve airflow.

Changes have also been made to the chassis air filters, while the mount for the optional lower-chamber fan has been moved next to the hard drive cage. This opens up space for installation of longer PSUs. A front-mounted eSATA port and additional support for Antec’s CP-series power supplies has also been added to the P183.

The P183 and P193 units are expected to retail at £125.81 and £146.83 respectively.

The difference is not enough to warrant the extra £35 over the model with it

I have used my 223BW in both digital and analogue outputs, and can honestly say I see no difference, DVI *might* be slightly better, but as Ham said, not enough for £35. If it is really bad I can easily RMA it anyway.
Got an email from Ebuyer, expected delivery date was Friday but latest email hints at Monday, so fingers crossed it is the latter.

Its hard to appreciate. Just on the Dell I have in front of me now, there is a remarkable overall difference between the quality of the dvi and vga. I switch between the 2. 1 for the Mac OS on the vga (web stuff) and the other Vista on the dvi (gaming).

*Unreal Voice* T-T-T-Triple Post!

23" in the post :D £135, so I can buy one now, and maybe another later. I tried dual on World in Conflict and Supreme Commander, was damn pretty, but I doubt it works with FPS

its "the next thing" this 16:9 lark. Or is it 16:10? Basically its apparently the new standard, albiet an early example that just uses VGA.

pfft, replacing 19" Dells in work all the time for newer HP or Samsung 19" screens "cos they're newer".

Hard to explain to people that although it's older, the other 2 new ones aren't gonna improve anything.

They look new, they're clean.. glad it's not my money :D
