Features:

The third chapter in the Quiet Computing story written by Antec-it's everything you've come to expect from the prestigious Sonata line, with even more upgrades and improvements. The Sonata III is whisper quiet when it comes to system noise while the new High Definition front audio ports ensure that your audio will be crystal clear. And the front eSATA connector allows for simple data transfer. It's all powered by Earth Watts 500 Watt power supply unit (PSU) which is equipped with universal input and Active PFC. This PSU is also 80PLUS certified making it one of the most efficient PSU's available. All that means the Sonata III is the perfect combination of style, silence and efficiency.

Pros
This is the same case we've been using for 5 years so every computer on the floor is the same.
Makes maintenance easy and swapping parts simple.
Cons
No front fan

Summary
This case has been almost the same for 5 years and I appreciate the continuity.
They've added USB 3.0 to the front as the one update.
Case is quiet and has no extra flashing lights or bling.
Perfect for business use.

Pros
price
quiet
Cons
little case management
collecting dust
Summary
bought this case with the 500w psu about 3 years ago on christmas sale at around $80. It works just fine. The lock function of the side panel and the front panel can be useful if you need it. There is only one case fan at the back, which works quiet so far in 3 years. One weakness is that you cannot do much case management with this case. But for a case bought 3 years ago at this price? I can live with it.

Pros
Quiet and convenient workstation case for home/office use.
Built in power supply by Antec and it's a adequate performer. Elegant looking case, suitable for general use application.
Cons
Case temp may get a little hot, better ventilation design is restricted by its rather compact design. It's a tradeoff. Not recommended for gaming which usually requires extra long video card + extra heat dissipation or 24/7 server stations.
Summary
It still remains a great buy for one looking for an easy solution at a general use workstation case at the get go.

Pros
It's very quiet! and it comes with a good PSU!
Cons
The price is sometimes way to high...
Summary
At 100$ this would be a no brainer for most of the builds I make for myself and my friends, but because the price keeps jumping back up I sometimes have to chose another case and it's a shame because this one is silent, it's well built and it looks nice!

Pros
Quiet, solidly built.
Cons
Power switch behind door
Summary
This is a nice, silent case. I love the cable routing and the drive bays. Cons: There is no provision from front USB3.0, I don't like the SSD mount, and the main case fan is not thermally controlled. It also irritates me that the power button is behind a door.

Still a fantastic case, would buy again.

Pros
Good Cost
Plenty of Room
Easy to Install
Cons
None so far
Summary
Just bought this over the weekend when it was on sale and couldn't be happier
Good size, good cost and plenty of room I installed it with the Noctua NH-D14 heatsink with no issues
The airflow is very nice and quiet

Pros
Screws Galore, quiet, very easy to work with.
Cons
I should have purchased one a long time ago...
Summary
I bought 5 of these towers for a new build for my Dad. Couldn't be happier with the provided accessories and options. My next case will be one of these.

Spacious, quiet, solid

None

Pros
Quiet
Good-Looking when shut
Excellent base power supply
Lock for sealing in components
Cons
Plain Optical Bay Area
Summary
Simple case, elegant when the front is closed, but an unfinished interior by the optical drives gives a feeling of cheapness. I trust Antec power supplies, so the fact that this includes a 500w unit, even if not used with this case is a good positive.

Pros
size
light weight
quiet
Cons
5.25" drive bay sticks out but a very minor thing
PSU wasn't modular, but you get what you pay for
Summary
Bought this for a budget desktop build because it came with a power supply. For the price I paid, it is a very good price especially since the power supply is decent enough to run low to mid tier setup.

The noise level is surprisingly low though this is only my initial impression of it.

Will definitely be purchasing this for my future builds
