Antec Two Hundred (200) V2 Case rated Great by 3dGameMan.com

Video Review #1162 Summary

Sponsored by: Antec
Review category: Cases
Manufacturer info: More info

Antec Two Hundred (200) V2 Case might be a budget case, but it has lots of features and great styling. They include one 140mm fan and another 120mm, but another three optional 120mm fans can be installed. There lots of drive bays and a hole on the motherboard tray for the coolers retention plate. If your need an affordable mid-tower case, this one might just be up your ally!

This is the case that won't let you down for anyone who see's the simplicity in building a computer with standard components' and understands that gaming computer world and being intellegent really has no bearing on the size of the pocket book. looking for that P.D.Q. and wanting to retain the natural processes of becoming a computer builder on a consumer based level without getting lost in the selfeshness of the business. and detouring thyself from the business there of. (for gaming perposes). You build that and you get the credit. Others see the value in that!

One thing I could see myself doing is drilling some holes for cable management :) I love that they include a dust filter. It's a decent case and would use this for a budget system.

The front looks so much to me like the chrysler symbol.

That does seem to be an important measurement.

Aside from style what sort of features would a $200+ case offer that a budget one wouldn't?

Normally a 200$+ case will be made of better sturdy materials, they provide more room for water cooling and smooth off any sharp edges. Truly the value is in the eye of the beholder and perhaps the price of the company name. Just look at those Lancool cases made by Lian-Li, they are 98% as good, cheaper, but will lack the name badge and perhaps some cutting edge features.

Better case from Antec, but still lacks in some areas. Why does the front look like darth vadar?

Looks like a great budget case with a lot of bang for the buck. They could have included one or to two more fans for the front but ok - it's a good product nevertheless.

The way Antec puts there headphone jacks and usp ports always make case looks to me. I also love the bottom of the front look. Sorta a spider web look to me. Idk why I care because I wouldnt want to remove it really.. but is the front dust filter removable?

Double boxing works, but there really should be no need for it, if couriers weren't so rough with parcels.
