Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Though this case is not setup for the best of cable management, with a few zip ties, cable extensions and small fingers i was able to easily incorporate cable management inside this case."
_
"I saw some complaints about cable management but if you put the time and effort into making things neat there is plenty of air-flow."
_
"Cons:- Cable management... not so great in comparison with contemporary cases."
_
"The right side removes to find a few cable ties, however I found them to be pretty useless because they are only located behind the harddrive bays, rather than behind a raised motherboard tray."
_
"(A 5.25 drive installed in the top bay might pose a problem for some PSUs with shorter cables.)"
_
"There is good space to tuck away excess cables and cable lengths."
_
"They are really accessible, have lots of space, lots of places to put the parts, nice for routing wires cables, and there is a lot of good ventilation."
_
"The cable management is pretty good, better than I expect for a $50 case."
_
"The cable management is great (you can hide wires behind on the side opposite the motherboard) and helps for unobstructed airflow."
_
"Pros:Great sizeLooks greatCons:Odd cable managementPower supply intake is on the bottom, meaning it sucks up air from the floor, making your power supply dusty if left untreated."

Case

Case:
"This case however doesn't come with the front fans which was a bit of a disappointment, but other than that very solid construction and it is the case i turn to for a budget build."
_
"It is not a large case and was not always easy working in, but this is the size I wanted."
_
"This means that unless you cover it yourself or add enough inward-blowing fans to pressurize the case, the front fan filters will be useless; it will just suck dust and hair through the side vent."
_
"This case claims to be a gaming case, but its missing some very, very crucial features that all gaming cases should have, budget or not."
_
"I find these cases very easy to work with."
_
"This is a very good case."
_
"Great cheap little case."
_
"I upgraded my computer (custom build) and my old custom build needed a home since it was perfectly fine as a server back up, so picked up this case."
_
"Love this case."

Installation

Installation:
"Its better than installing two fronts fans that increase annoying humming sound and doesn't really cool that much to justify noise."
_
"- I like the front-top mounted headphone and USB but I made the mistake of installing my DVD in the top bay and now the tray is always batteling with cords."
_
"Oh yeah, you can fit a Radeon 5770 graphics card in this case, however, I recommend that no HDD is in its way, cuz you need at least an inch to plug in a 6 pin or 8 pin PCI-E cable; if I had to guess, I would say the maximum graphics card that you can install inside the 300 is at least 10 inches if no HDD was blocking it, but I'm not 100% sure, so I recommend you at least plan ahead before installing a huge graphics card."
_
"My graphics card was sort of awkward and so it was pretty tight during installation but this rig should GENERALLY be big enough for all your impressive components."
_
"However it is made with very good quality, installation for computer hardware is very easy, and it runs very quiet."
_
"The top 5.25 plate pops off by hand and ODD installation is very easy."
_
"It isn't flashy so don't think you're going to impress anyone with it but it has a lot of space, ease of installation, and good size."
_
"*Lots of Thumbscrews make installing components quick and easy."

Power

Power:
"The power switch seems to be a little flimsy, but does the job."
_
"This one had a dead power switch so it won't turn on my computer."
_
"Unfortunately, it did have an odd wiring connection for the power led in the front, so I had to leave it unconnected."
_
"Only complaint is that the power button seems a little flimsy--but it has held up so far."
_
"The power button seems a little flimsy.3."
_
"Yes...It's bare bones, has to have a power supply and fans bought for it but the configuration is phenomenal."
_
"ATX motherboard fit well right above power supply."
_
"The two USB connections at the top are great, they are USB 2.0; the headphones and mic are there as well along with the power button and reset button."
_
")- A little thing, but the power button is pretty chinzy."
_
"My only wish is that instead of a molex 4-pin power adapter and a dangling speed control switch for each fan, they go with a motherboard power connection so the great software available these days could control the fan speed automatically."

Price

Price:
"After assembling the whole computer, it turns out that the few dozen small screws that were packed with the standoffs don't actually seem to serve any purpose anywhere in the case...Secondly, the standard size drive-bay case screws that were included with this case are complete cheap junk."
_
"You can still use one, though, if they're too tight.5) There are no bits sticking out to be snapped off when carrying the case.6) The rubber feet don't peel off when you're trying to position the case on the floor, so you're not left with a hair-covered pad that won't stick anymore and a wobbly computer.7) It's about as inexpensive as it can get without descending into the Cheap Worthless Junk class of cases."
_
"The Antec 300 has a nice black finish to it on the exterior (interior is gray) - the 300 has a nice design, it's not over the top, just a basic design; the structure of the case seems very solid and reinforced, however the front panel, which is removable is very flimsy and feels cheap (it's plastic)."
_
"Most of the cases on Amazon, Tiger, or at my local computer shows for this price are flimsy sheetmetal or plastic."
_
"Basically, if you are looking for a full-sized AT case with a clean look that is a snap to build, the Antec Three Hundred is hard to beat for the money."
_
"Therefore, if your PSU has short leads, it's tough to keep a nice sanitary wiring layout (worst case: the leads on a cheap PSU may not reach)."
_
"Great cheap little case."
_
"Good Product, Good Price, Good Service"
_
"This seems pretty popular but it seems like the price is going up."
_
"Both of my computers were built in these cases because they are perfect, cheap, and subtle looking (not wacky like some of the game cases out there!"
_
"For the price you can do a lot better, I recommend the Corsair 300R."

Quality

Quality:
"My only complaint is the poor quality of the ON OFF and RESET switches."
_
"good quality"
_
"Tons of room and good build quality."
_
"Good quality metals well worked and finished."
_
"I will say, however, that of all the budget cases I've owned, this is far and away the best, highest quality one I've seen yet."
_
"The quality is outstanding, and the performance is too."

Screw

Screw:
"A screw head broke off clean while I was screwing my optical drive into place--the screw was only about 1 3rd of the way screwed in and broke while applying light, consistent pressure."
_
"After assembling the whole computer, it turns out that the few dozen small screws that were packed with the standoffs don't actually seem to serve any purpose anywhere in the case...Secondly, the standard size drive-bay case screws that were included with this case are complete cheap junk."
_
"It turns out that these standoffs were made to work with standard size drive-bay case screws, and not the small screws that you'd normally expect (and were packed in the same baggie...) Very annoying."
_
"The only problem I had was with the layout of the motherboard mounting screws which did not line up with my motherboard mounting holes in two places."
_
"The only thing I was upset about was that I had to use screws to put the drives in, while I prefer snap design."
_
"It's free of any sharp edges and comes with plenty of handy thumb screws, making a build out very easy."
_
"If you remove the front panel, the header is held with 2 screws so swapping these out would be nice if you have a motherboard that can accommodate USB 3.0.Those two items are very small, what you get though is a great case for a very, very low price."
_
"It also comes with a ton of screws, which I found very nice."
_
"Pro: Understated black aesthetic; tight tolerances; rugged construction; no delivery damage; plentiful thumb screws; 120mm & 140mm fansCon: Fans are not controlled by the mobo, so during the computer build you need to elect whether to set the fans manually to low, medium or high."
_
"Antec supplied an adequate number of case and drive screws and motherboard stand-offs."

Speed

Speed:
"The only complaint I have is with the included fans which have a 3 speed switch instead of being thermal."
_
"It will get dirty and dust accumulates real fast, so be sure to clean it every 2 weeks or so."
_
"So if you're looking for the most affordable tower for the best performance and don't care about being able to see all the stuff inside(no plexi windows) then this is the tower for you! "
_
"Either way this is a very well built case with 2 front , 1 rear, and 1 top case fans with adjustable speeds, very sturdy and has a easy removable dust screen in front case."
_
"Also, the two fans have lo med high speed controller switches for easy adjustment."
_
"The quality is outstanding, and the performance is too."
_
"The build in fans have 3 speed controls on them which is a nice little touch in my opinion."
_
"Out of the box it would be perfect for an above average desktop system, since this particular build was going to be used for gaming and built more for performance i just slapped on some front fans and the case now has amazing airflow that will even accommodate mid-degrees of overclocking (if desired).Draw backs: the interior of the case has some edges and corners of the sheet metal that are left pointing inwards and are very sharp."
