Legit Reviews gave it their Recommended Award which is no small feat. They made special note of the generous amount of space in the case and the styling. They appreciated the move forward in features while maintaining the classic Performance One design.
Tweak Town gave the P280 their “Must Have, Best Value Award” and had some glowing comments for the case.
“ This pricing puts it head to head with quite a few of the more popular case choices in mid towers, and I have to tell you one thing. If you are in the market to buy a mid tower chassis, the Antec P280 super mid tower chassis is indeed a chassis worth the wait, and I suggest you do so to get everything you deserve for your investment and much, much more than what the others are offering!”
Anandtech just went online with their review and while they don’t give awards any more, they had some very high praise for us.
“Antec's engineers made an awful lot of changes when they designed the P280, and it's fantastic to see the kind of innovation here that I used to expect fairly regularly from them. They took a lot of the best ideas from existing designs and applied some of their own, and the result is an enclosure that in many ways feels like a grand experiment. If you like tinkering with your system, I probably couldn't recommend the P280 enough.”
“The Antec P280 Case is the perfect option for a quiet computer build. With acoustic dampening material inside, this case will reduce any computer noise to a minimum. The overall design, build quality and styling is great and it's not going to break the bank. There's lots of drive bays, fans, cable management and much more.”
“One Hundred and forty US dollars may sound expensive for a mid-tower case, but the Antec P280 is more than a simple mid-tower case. With nine expansion slots, it fits the needs of the high-end user who otherwise would have to buy a big and expensive full-tower case. For users looking for the features present on this product, the Antec P280 provides a terrific cost/benefit ratio.”
