Product on Review: Performance One – P280
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Antec
Street Price: £110-120
For a while now Antec have channelled most of their efforts into the production of gamer cases which cater for those who lean towards computer chassis that adopt more of a garish approach to case design. Antec’s Performance One Series which features the much loved P180/P182 and P183 has seen no additions until today. Today we see the successor and next instalment to this popular enthusiast series named the P280.
The P280 continues the minimalist and discreet styling whilst offering up-to-date functionality from USB 3.0 ports and XL-ATX compatibility. Can this new addition to the Antec’s enthusiast category build on the successes of a popular series? Let’s find out!
Antec’s take on P280
Sophisticated and cutting-edge, the P280 emphasizes the ease of use, quiet technology and unparalleled performance characteristic of Antec's Performance One series. This advanced enclosure comes equipped with features that will maximize your PC experience, from Quiet Computing™ panels & HDD drive bays, to grommet-lined cable routing holes with ample space behind the motherboard tray. The P280 accommodates motherboards up to XL-ATX and includes nine expansion slots to support up to four 13.0" / 330 mm graphics cards. And with convenient tool-less optical drive bays, easy-access front & bottom PSU intake air filters, two front panel USB 3.0 ports and an affordable price, you get an elite enclosure that will last you for builds to come.
