    Antec Inc., a global leader in high-performance computer enclosures, power supplies, and mobile accessories today announces the P100, a case engineered for quiet computing.

    The P100 is an ATX case that epitomizes cool, quiet, and sophistication. It features Antec's award-winning Performance One series design and Quiet Computing technologies that minimize system noise. In addition to 7 expansion slots, the P100 also supports two tool-less 5.25" drives and seven tool-less 3.5"/ 2.5" drives. With a great price-to-feature ratio, the P100 is the only economical case that delivers silence. A balance of price and features is achieved by combining Antec design standards with superior build quality. Together with the Smart Cooling Solution (S.C.S.) and Quiet Computing Technology, the P100 is truly in a class all its own.

    They're similar, but they aren't the same:

    • The front ports and switches are laid out differently.
    • The P100 has two 5.25" bays and seven 3.5"/2.5"; the P280 has three 5.25" and six 3.5"/2.5".
    • The P100 has a simpler motherboard tray.
    • The P100 supports ATX motherboards (7 expansion slots); the P280 supports XL-ATX (9 slots).
    • The P280 has a 4-fan power hub on the top-back; the P100 doesn't.

    Man that front door reminds me of the paper thin plastic Thermaltake cases. Sure hope Antec isn't going that route. They've always had good study quality cases for years. I never use them for my own builds but for other people I've used them quite often.

    I really don't see the need for removable HDD cages on this case. The case supports the longest GFX cards ever made (AMD 7990) with the cage installed? So what benefit would come from removing the front HDD cage?
