I would like to thank Antec
for supplying the review sample.
We are taking a look at the Antec P380 chassis today. Having reviewed Antec cases in the past, they always seem to bare some sort of positive surprise. It will be interesting to see whether Antec's higher-end case can deliver on that as well. This chassis can be considered a full-tower case, and it does employ different materials.

Antec ships the P380 in a fully colored cardboard box, which is rather unusual these days as most case manufacturers are moving to simpler boxes instead. On its front is an image of the chassis, and the rear details the P380's features with images for additional clarity.
Both sides of the box have carrying holes and additional images of the chassis.
Two foam spacers hold the P380 in place, which, unlike Styrofoam, can survive a fall. A plastic bag has been placed over the Antec P380 to keep fingerprints and scratches during the packaging process away.
