The new P280 from Antec is a mid-tower case (or “super mid-tower,” as the manufacturer calls it) with nine expansion slots, allowing you to install XL-ATX motherboards and four dual-slot video cards. It is part of the Antec Performance One series, which brings several features to reduce the noise produced by the PC. Let’s take a good look at this new product and determine if you should buy it.
The P280 has a very sober look, and both panels are solid.
The air filter for the power supply fan is accessible from the left side of the case, which makes it easier for you to clean this filter. On competing products, this filter is removed either from the rear or the bottom of the case, which means you have to move or lift your case. (Depending on your configuration, it may be very heavy.)
