    out of the two i prefer the P183, Although on the proviso that you never open the bay doors!

    So as a Server case it wouldnt be too bad, can i assume there is massive ammounts of space in the P183 to fill with Hard Drives?

    As for the P193, humm....not even a dark corner of my basement will stop me thinking about that "growth" on the side. ill give creit where its due tho, it was a nice attempt. it just needs the "growth" on the other side and the P193 will have stubby wings! :lol:

    A damn shame. I was thinking of upgrading my ageing P180 to a P190 for the increased room, but a) it looks like it barely got a release without any PSUs, and b) is out of stock everywhere anyway.

    glad i bought my p182 at £80 one and half year ago. :)

    so p193 is now the same size as p183, just with an added side fan??

    Makes me wonder if I should splurge out money on the P182 as quickly as possible after all, even though it's risen in price here of late.

    Are they going to be selling the 'filters/blanking plates' as extras? I'd put them in my 182...
    193's side is an abomination, I'd say an Engineering solution rather than Design.

    What the **** happened, did Antecs designers defect to Coolermaster or something? (just look at how sexy their new high end cases all are) Antec's designs are on the wrong side of ****ing ugly by several hundred miles lately, they just have all been looking cheap and crappy

    Well this is just two more places I don't have to spend money on!
    These weren't released - they escaped!

    The CP-850 power supply has been on sale for awhile, and the P193 is on sale in some countires. Please have performance reviews of them.

    One of the things I instantly disliked about the Mini P180 was the door design. Now they've repeated the unclean look on the mid-tower. :duh:
