Page 2, paragraph 2, first sentence:

"At the top is another cutout with a 120mm exhaust fan."

Should be 140mm. Then you'd need to take the "also" out of the first sentence from the next paragraph, too.

Nice quick review there. Honestly, shipping deals and sales seem more important than a case's MSRP, especially in the budget range. They can make an otherwise meh case very attractive. Case in point, I bought the Two Hundred v2 from Newegg for $35 shipped during a sale a month or so back. It's easily worth that price.

The hot-swap bay is novel, but honestly, how many people carry around naked 2.5" drives? Is that a common practice? I'm a fairly techy guy and I never do that, nor do my friends. We use enclosures. The case's bottom 2.5" mount is much more interesting and useful.

Having built computers in both this case and the Three Hundred, I think I'd recommend the Two Hundred v2. They're priced the same — perhaps Antec is phasing out the non-Illusion version of the Three Hundred?

The $60 space is full of competition. Many of the cases there would be great if you could get 'em for $50-60 shipped. For whatever reason, the Centurion 5 II doesn't show up in that search, but it's probably the best value at the $60 price point right now with great cable management and two good fans.

Thank you very much for pointing that out. I corrected it.
