Antec P182 Advanced Super Mid Tower

Introduction

Introduction

Antec have been producing quality PC products for a fair number of years now. Last year we took a look at one of their higher-end cases, the P180b . Today i'll be looking at the P180's younger brother, aptly named the P182.


Packaging

The packaging on the P182 was very close to the packaging of the original P180. On the front we see an overview of the case and some blurb outlining the case's main selling points, while the back portrays a more in depth description of the chassis.

The box had been rather battered during its trip to me. But thankfully, the packaging was sufficient to maintain it in good condition. As you can see the case is held in place by large polystyrene surrounds, with a cardboard cover keeping the case secure. For that additional protection the metal on the case was covered in a sticky backed plastic to prevent scratches.

Package

Included with the case are a few accessories. Firstly there's 3 fans. They are the same Tri-cools that the original P180 used. These are excellent fans which have a 3 way switch that allows you to change the RPM of the fan. There's the 'spoiler', manuals and some curious metal bars that hold a fan in place. I noticed that with the P182, that Antec havn't bothered to print a new manual... instead they have just included the old P180b one. It's not really that much of an issue but Antec could have at least printed some new covers. Also included are the rails that secure the various drives into their bays and enough screws to build a house.

It's a hard case to criticise tbh, although I'm not a huge fan of the looks it's still a nice looking case.

Glad they sorted cable tidying too Quote
