Antec has decided to bring back the sleek, aluminum paneled look of the Performance Series. First and foremost is the P Series is always about quiet PCs. The P280 has sound dampening material, silicone grommets, and a triple layered from door. Then we move to the air filter covered fan mounts, support XL-ATX motherboards, tool-less optical drive bays, and plenty of cable management. The P280 even has fan hubs to minimize wiring mess and easy installation/remove of a fan.
The Antec P280 chassis has an MSRP of $139.95 (€ 139) which makes it a very attractive option in the $100 to $200 price range. This may be the case you are looking for to last you for the next half a decade.
