Antec Updates the Three Hundred with a Plus Two James White January 25, 2012 Press Release This is one of those “I knew this would happen eventually” kinda updates. We all new the +2 would be applied to the Antec 300. Once again the update brings an older case in the modern market with smart updates to the design and feature set. Introducing the new Antec Three-Hundred Two. This case is not out to wow you with fancy features like fan controllers, sound dampening material, LED lights, or hot-swap bays. Instead this case looks to impress with the essential features in a long lasting durable design. You get the cable management, removable washable PSU filter, six tool-less 3.5″ internal HDD bays, three tool-less external 5.25″ bays, two 2.5″ bays (dedicated for your SSDs), and eight expansion slots. This is all tightly packed into a mid-tower. The front I/O has audio in/out, power, reset, and two USB 3.0 ports (backwards compatible with USB 2.0). This case is the very definition of no-nonsense design. Not one square inch is wasted on pointless aesthetics or features to just brag about. At an MSRP of $79.95, this is a case that will last for too many years. If you are in the market for a case and longevity is the number one requirement, this is it.
