The P280 is presented in a large box with a depiction of the case on the front and round the back significant features are listed along with the technical specifications. Inside, the case is covered in a clear plastic sheet and held in place via dual polystyrene pillars.
Antec P280 packaging is eye-catching
Taking the P280 out of its packaging you will instantly notice similarities with other cases currently on the market but the P280 actually lends its assets from the original P180/P182 which originally introduced this minimalist approach to case design. Both side panels are solid, as is the front panel which is part plastic, part anodized aluminium.
Those who have a leaning towards cases that are discreet in their styling will favour the P280’s professional asthetics.
