I would like to thank Antec for supplying the review sample.
We have previewed the chassis before launch and now have the final version in our test labs. It will be interesting to see what aspects have changed between the pre-retail and this one and we will base this review on the preview, but expand it to give you a proper look at the production unit. Here is what Antec has to say about their newest chassis:
For new builders and seasonal system integrators alike, everyone will find something to like in Antec’s One. This enclosure is stocked with features any builder will value at an attractive price – ample cooling, USB 3.0, tool-less 5.25” & 3.5” drive bays and bottom-mounted PSU intake with air filter – so that you can put your PC together with ease and get to the fun stuff. If you’re looking for high quality PC essentials at an affordable cost, then this enclosure is the One for you.

Antec, like most other manufacturers nowadays, ships the ONE in a plain brown cardboard package with a simple image of the case itself on the front and a blow-up diagram on the rear, along with some specifications. Both sides hold additional images of the case.
The case is held in place by to fairly compact foam spacers and protected from smudges and fingerprints by a thin plastic bag. All this is quite adequate for a chassis of this price range.
