    That's decent. I've seen them at $99 w/o rebate.
    It is a heavy case, 31# empty, and shipping can add to the cost.
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Yeah, I would grab it if there was an alluminum version for the same price. I like the sleek look.

    An aluminum P180 wouldn't be as quiet, so don't get your hopes up too soon.

    Its definitely a pretty heavy case (around 20lbs empty) and cabling is a pain!
    It blocks airflow unless you take a long amount of time with a drill modding it.

    Rebate ends 23rd March

    They're trying to clear stock. At first the there was a rebate ending 18th and now its been pushed further.

    Here's a P180 clone that supports dual PSU's and it's alum.

    It's suppose to be my next case

    I like my p180, provided that it doesn't fight with the rest of my parts (it won't boot when everything is in there)

    Anyone wanna trade a modded p180 for something?

    Excuse me.
    http://www.antec.com/specs/P180_spe.html Net/Gross, 31/36lbs.

    I don't want to insult anyone that uses the P180 but it is heavy, has weak door hinges, the front door can/will warp, the side panels can/will seperate.
    Yes Antec will offer free replacement parts. Sheesh!

    I await the Ultra case that is based on the YCC-61. It will be like the Akasa Eclipse 62. It will be wide, light and all panels will be removable, leaving a free standing aluminum frame. Talk about a snap to work with, slide out tray and dual 120 fans.
    Worth a good looking over. http://www.badcaps.net/

    Wow that is damn heavier than I thought.

    I was guessing from having lifted it up a 200m steep slope recently...

    I'll look for the Ultra case you're mentioning GY, sounds very good but I didn't know about it before you mentioned it
