The P182 is much closer to being a case for everyman because it's so much easier to manage the wiring. The changes were small, but the effect is dramatic. They show intelligent evolution and attention to user feedback.
At first appearance, there might not be much attracting a potential purchaser of a PC enclosure to the P182 SE over Antec's other offerings aside from the out-of-this-world paint job, but the work/showcase spotlight might be just the kind of accessory which nudges an interested party over the edge t

Awesome case. Worth every cent. I did change the fans to something quieter but the 1s that it came with are ok. Cable management is way to cool with case. Even without trying it cleans things up alot. Air flow is nice. Love the seperate area for the ps however your need to have a ps with longer cables or you will need to get extentions. Also a smaller ps as you have limited room. Fyi ocz evostream 720s cables are too short and barely fits due to its large size. Needed to remove the lower fan but thats ok as the ps fan is more than enough. Only weekness i see so far is the door hinges. Im just waiting for them to snap. Antec did drop the ball there. Still if you are looking for a awesome new case this is it. This review was modfied by poster c 04-12-08 05:42 PM

I just replaced my Antec 900 (awesome case, but it's a dust magnet) with this. This case is twice what I expected. I bought it at a local retailer for $199. I was hesitant to buy because the regular P182 was $149, but I DEFINATELY don't regret it. I think I'm gonna put a smaller power supply in, though.

I didn't buy mine from NCIX, as I found it at a better price elsewhere, but this is an absolutely beautiful case. I love it because it doesn't scream "OMGZ I AM FOR LEET GAMER". It looks gorgeous without the need for a plethora of blue LEDs (although it has three of them, 2 for hard drives, one for power). The interior is also black, unlike most cases. The cooling, out of the box is pretty damn good. Keeps my Q6600 at 24C, according to SpeedFan. Runs quite quiet as well. There are two 4-slot trays for a total of eight hard drives. These slots have silicon grommets to reduce the sound of hard drive vibration. The bottom of the case also rests on silicon grommets. This also helps reduce vibration, but makes dragging the case forward somewhat of a hassle. There is also a flexible snake light inside of the case. I have not had any use for it, but I'm sure some people out there will. When I first got mine, it wasn't handled very well at the post office. There is a huge gouge in the box, and there was a nasty dent on one of the side panels. I explained my situation to Antec, and they sent me a replacement panel free of charge , which I recieved within a week. It might be worth noting that there is a cable organizing feature on the back of the panel which the motherboard is mounted on. My only qualms with this case is its weight. Some people may have issues with power supply cables not being long enough. Check that your PSU will fit before buying a P182(SE)

Awesome case wouldn't trade it for any thing. It is every thing that I could of wanted in a case. The only thing that I am dissatisfied with are the Antec tri-cool fans they are great fans but not just the performance that I was looking for. All in all this is a great case and it surely deserves 5 stars.

I bought the p182 case which is similar to this case as far as interior is concerned. I have four fans running in this case and my temps for everything are below 30 on idle. It is extremely quite and looks so good you will just feel so grateful everytime you look at it. I suggest a power supply with large wires so you can feed them through the back of the case for clean wiring.
My door was damaged when it arrived, the steel at the top was bent forward off the plastic. I just put some glue behind it and bent it back as RMAing it back would cost $70+. You can see the steel has been bent due to the mirror finish but its not that bad. Would buy the case again as everything was perfect so this was the 1 in a million case that had a defect.
This case looks phenomenal, I can't believe how nice it looks. The mirrors just add that extra touch that makes everyone say "wow, that looks really good" The interior is well designed with every aspect though of to help reduce clutter and make everything easy to access and quick to take out. It offers a "wind tunnel" if you choose to use it (nullifies your ability to add hard drives in that area). The case fans are quiet, but can be set to go faster if desired, switches for the fans are located at the top in the back.
