Antec P183 Advanced Super Mid Tower

Introduction

Introduction
 
Founded in 1986, Antec have grown into one of the best known manufacturers of PC upgrades, enclosures and components. Based in Fremont, California with offices around the globe, Antec have been working on becoming the market leader in providing efficient, quiet and reliable products.  Today for your visual pleasure, I have the privilege of taking a look at one of their latest products - the Antec P183, successor to the P182, which was reviewed by Graham Newton and received the OC3D Recommendation back in 2007. Will the new Antec P183 live upto the family name?

Nice review Wesley Is this your first one or has there been one before? Can't remember.

Either way nice one.

Looks a nice case.. I'm far from in the market for another case at the mo, but it's nice to have a choice of quality cases in the mid range category.

The Antec PXXX cases are a love-hate thing. personally I do not like the look, but they are very functional

It's a very nice case, apart from the cut outs, just makes it look ugly. The P182 was good looking but the new ones are horrible.

Still, very functional cases and look good. I now prefer door-less cases but they are alot better than the 900/1200
