main Antec P183 Mid Tower Case

Introduction

Antec are a company that are prepared to make changes and revisions to products in order to further improve them and create top quality products. The P180 from the Performance One series was the first in a series and today we have the latest revision of this design – the P183. The P180 which was launched some time ago now was an instant hit, the P182 even better and hopefully the P183 that we have here today can improve upon an already highly impressive product. Antec have a great reputation for their cases so this should be of the highest order; let’s take a look.
