Antec does it again! The Solo offers maximum room for your drives without
resorting to a full sized tower. It boasts room for a staggering four internal
3.5" drives. Not content there, it integrates four 5.25" external drives by
removing the rarely used 3.5" external bays. If you want any of the external
bays to be 3.5", a simple adaptor can be used to seamlessly convert them.
Naturally, it includes two USB ports, a Firewire port, and two audio ports
located on the front of the case for easy access. Made with the toughness of
steel, yet you will have no worry about accidental cuts or scrapes as all edges
have been folded over to prevent that dangerous razor sharpness.
The tray supports all standard ATX Motherboards up to 12" x 9.6", with 7 PCI
expansion slots in the back. The system comes with a 120mm adjustable speed
TriCool fan to be used in the back of the system.
QUIET COMPUTING TECHNOLOGYThe
Antec Solo features the latest in noise reduction technology, including
dual-layer sound deadening panels and a suspension system that makes hard drive
noise a thing of the past.
PIANO BLACK FINISHWith
the beautiful piano black finish, the Antec Solo looks no more just a bulk of
steel and plastic. The decent and elegant appearance makes computer systems
built with the Antec Solo carter to those particular tastes.
FLEXIBLE EXPANDABILITY WITH UP TO 8 DRIVE BAYSThe
Antec Solo provides four external 5.25" drive bays (including a 5.25"-to-3.5"
HDD adapter) and four internal 3.5" drive bays in tray mount mode or three
internal 3.5" drive bays in suspension mount mode for flexible expandability.
ENHANCED COOLING SYSTEMThe
Antec Solo features a 120mm Tricool fan with a 3-speed control to achieve the
optimum balance between quietness and cooling. Two front 92mm fan mounts are
provided for optional HDD cooling.

convenient front I/O panel enables easy access to two USB 2.0 ports, one IEEE
1394 port and two audio ports.

This is a pretty solid case. I bought it when I built my current desktop a few years ago and have been very happy with it. It's very good at sound isolation and has good airflow considering it's backed into a corner (with some rear clearance under my desk.
Very heavy case so don't expect to move it around too much. Feels very solid and sturdy. Paint not as fingerprint happy as I originally thought (they disappear 5 sec after you touch it). Access to harddrive bay is a bit of a hassle since you need to open case, open front panel, remove filter, unscrew door. Front USB ports built VERY close together so don't except to use the other one if your device is wider than any standard usb cable.
I wanted a well built traditional looking case providing good ventilation and sound deadening for my new build. I am very happy with the purchase and result. The Diamond HD5850 I ordered only just squeezes in (I wanted the reference design to restrict length to 9.5 inches, but the card I received was longer. NCIX states, "Actual product may not be exactly as shown" in small grey letters). Replaced the Tricool based on reviewers comments concerning noise.
Build by NCIX; Antec Solo case, Enermax 625W Modu82+ PSU, Noctua 120 & 2xNoctua 92 case fans, Asus P6X58D-E mobo, Intel i7 930 CPU, Noctua NH-C12P SE14 cooler, 3x2GB Corsair XMS3 CL8 RAM, Intel X25-M 160GB HDD, 2xWD Blue 1TB drives in Raid 0, Diamond HD5850, LG CH10LS20 Bluray DVD reader/burner, Diamond TV wonder 650, ASUS Xonar DX7.
I bought my P-150, the Solo's sister three years ago. It's been great with an E6600 and Asus P5B Deluxe combo with Noctua cooler and fans. I'm considering my i5 and i7 upgrade options. The P-150 (Solo) will still be my case.
bought this two years ago for my main rig and havent looked back. this is a fantastic case! it is very easy to work on and very well built. cleaning and changing things is a breeze, the side panel comes off with thumbscrews(that are attached so they dont get lost), the front clips and swings open, the drives have trays and clips so you can pop them in and out easily. lots af space for everything, very good airflow, quiet and very stylish to boot. this is a case that will survive through many builds, highly recommended.
