WHAT WE LIKED:

Great design, sleek looks, quiet, LEDs that are not super bright, tons of room behind the motherboard tray, space for E-ATX boards with 9 expansion slots, room for 2x SSDs AND 6x HDDs, space for up to 7 120mm fans, room for a 2x120 radiator, rubber case feet, vibration dampers for HDDs, unique SSD mounting options
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Could use an extra cable routing hole near the bottom of the motherboard area, cable routing grommets still pop out of the tray, why are the power LED wires shorter than the rest? Knockouts?!
 
BOTTOM LINE:
The Antec P280 provides loads of features for a price that won't bust your wallet.
