The New Antec One Case Available Now James White February 10, 2012 Press Release We have discussed in the past a number of new cases in the entry level price bracket, but a few brands have shied away from this market. Well Antec decided it was time to throw there hat into this ring now with the release of the Antec One. The Antec One is the new Antec entry level case with some impressive bullet points. These include three 5.25″ ODD bays, five 3.5″ tool-less internal drive bays, bottom mounted PSU, and perforated mesh face construction for additional airflow. This is all complemented by a sleek functional design at an MSRP of $59.95 ($54.95 at Newegg.com). Now some of you may recall Antec has two cases in the entry level price market in the form of the VSK and Two Hundred. I will be blunt and just say I plain don’t like either of those cases. The new Antec One on the other hand seems like something I can recommend to people who need a king’s quality on a pauper’s salary. This should be a great partner in crime for the Antec 302.
