Antec LanBoy Air Case is a breath of fresh air! It's very unique and innovative which is commended. With it's open air like design it looks like no other case on the market. This case is lightweight, up to 15 120mm fans can be installed, there's lots of drive bays, has a removable motherboard tray, radiator can be mounted at top and a lot of other excellent feature. If you own this case you have bragging rights!
Excellent review Rodney.Very nice work.Your reviewing capabilities have reached a new height.Thank you.
Dust isn't exactly easy to keep down even in a clean room. I dust my whole house probably twice a month and I still get lots of dust. Having a cat doesn't help, either. Fortunately my case has dust filters, so there's pretty much no dust inside my computer.
You still get a lot of dust because you're suppose to dust your house at least once a week. That's how we do it in my house.
holy crap. 15 fans in total?! this is just a bunch of fans held together by a tiny bit of plastic and steel, and 15 inch graphics card?! you can probably use that as a weapon.
This case needs dustfilters, i got 1 dog and 3 cats D:
dustfilters, air cans, how about cleaning youre room..
Great case, wrong color
We offer the Lanboy Air in blue or yellow in the US. Red will be coming within the next few months.
Now that I think about it, I don't think I would like this case much. First of all, there are too many screws that need to be removed to take off the side panel. I would like to see a pull-out latch on case side panels implemented more often, something like on the Antec Sonata II and III cases, where you don't need screws at all, or even the push-buttons like the Obsidian 800D.
Also, I can't stand to see a modern case that has no eSATA ports. I also don't like how you can see through this case. It defeats half the purpose of cable management.
Also, I think the FAA would probably want to regulate anyone who puts the maximum number of fans in this case, because it will probably go into helicopter mode.
Edit: As for the rear fan, I would think that if you wanted an exhaust fan you could simply flip the fan over, but I don't see the point in a case that has this much ventilation.
I see lots of questions asking why all the fans are intaking air and none are exhausting air. It's because this case has positive air pressure.
With the ridiculous amount of ventilation on this case, there is no need for exhaust fans anyways!
Did anyone notice the intake fan on the back, are they not supposed to be exhaust?
Complete garbage. 6 thump screws to take off the side panels. Motherboard tray isn't really removable becuase you need to take off the entire back panel. Fans on the motherboard side is useless if your going to use the cable management. Cable management is useless for looks in this case becuase you cans see right through it to the messy cables in the back that are supposed to be "hidden". No dust filters anywhere on the case when over 50% of the case is mesh??? << WTF? They honestly expect to sell these at $200? To whoever owns this case has the right to be made fun of for wasting $200!
you a hole pay attention to this vid
It would be very nice to see if they would include dust filters along with all the mash. The mash is of course great for air circulation, but I think that your PC will be very dusty after a short time
The case looks really nice, but you have to take out a lot of screws just to take out the side panel and the motherboard.
Only need filters on the fans with positive air pressure.
Correct me if im wrong but i think this is the longest video review on a case that i have seen.
Seems like its got everything.
Question: Does the Yellow version come with yellow LED
edit: nevermind i just checked. it has blue LED's
lol @ everyone with their Dust Magnet comments. I certainly share those sentiments.
Review the Corsair AX series! ?
Very innovative indeed, good job Antec for leading the way in this style of a case. This case does have some shortcomings, but it's great! Other companies will surely follow with new and improved ideas based on this free air design.
I imagine you can make some simple filters for the intake fans. 5 or 6 intake fans with filters should create enough positive interior pressure that very little dust gets in, even through those gaps between the modular panels.
Nice review Rodney! Very correctly rated as 100% KA.
Its a Kickass Dust Magnet Rodney!
Even with no dust filters that would be easy to clean imo
Yea easy but you will need allot of air cans for that case.
Its a DUST MAGNET!
to hell it is not!
watch the product tour on youtube!
But you'll probably have a lot to clean. More than just a few dustfilters.
But no dustfilters I guess and also lots of gaps for dust to enter.. I would've bought this if they thought about the dust issues..
again positive pressure! it does not need them! if you are so worried about dust buy the other 10 fans that will blow it all out and get the 200cfm ones to then you really wouldn't have to deal with dust!
The Antec LawnBoy PC DustCage LOL.
NO ITS A DUST MAGNITO
.....another one bites the dust.....
btw this case is awesome.. but i have to clean it every single day to keep dust away
The yellow heavy steel mesh looks maybe ugly to some being a rather pricey mid tower resembling a Dyson power tool, but that's just a personal preference. This product is unique however being the first fully modular case. The motherboard tray is removable but unfortunately dust filters are not included. Dust filters would of been preferred considering it has the potential for 15 120mm fans making good airflow at the cost of the added noise, but to some people that isn't even issue. Overall this a Great product. Till next time take care.
This looks amazing, is it really light? Enough to transport well? I always wanted one that does, just in case. Also there is another modular case, it's silent with no fans and the design of the case was made by a car company. I forget the name of it though, it was around $800 though.
TT level 10
Since Im a Fan-a-holic, I must buy this case!! A case that supports 15 120mm fans!!
At first I thought this was a joke. But after watching the video my mind was blown. The practicality of this case is immeasurable. From the modular mesh design to the suspension rails for the HD... it may look like a toy but from a feature and performance point of view this case blows a lot of other top of the line cases away.
looks like a DUST MAGNET to me Rodney
does it have dust filters?
Now this is a case I'd buy!
Looks awesome and seems rly good!
I wonder if you could install radiators on the rest of those fan slots?
That would put this case over the top for myself.
Are you going to keep this case for yourself Rodney?
Oh my...it's like K'Nex all over again!
I LIKE IT!
Oh wow I cant wait to get my hands on one of these cases... I want to measure around and see if it's possible to fit a 360mm radiator on those side panel parts... even if it meant no optical drives it would be okay with me!! I really love the support for the 240mm rad @ the top too however getting creative and fitting a massive 360mm water cooling loop inside a MID tower case like this... oh mama the cooling possibilitys!!!
I agree with 100% kickass product.
Very interesting. I'm calling my buyer first thing in the morning to get some in to the store.
To bad theirs no green one 8(
Whats the point of opening the box from the bottom? I dont see how it is any easier than opening it from the top.
It has some pretty nice features and it looks pretty good, but with all those unfiltered vents, this case will be a huge dust magnet. Im not so sure I like the hard drive rails either.
This case looks REALLY nice. I hope to see more of its kind.
Rodney! You forgot to say this, "And thankfully, the motherboard tray is Removable!"
I would assume that the hard drive mounts would cause the HDD's to vibrate, making them fail easily!
Ok, now this is a badass case. When I do my next build this will have to be included. One question though, are the blue(or yellow) pieces steel or plastic?
