    Review: Antec Rockus 2.1 Speakers

    Short version: Not bad, but the “3D” effect isn’t very compelling, and the lack of extra features makes the $200 price unpalatable. Read More

  • Antec's New Rockus 2.1 Desktop Speaker Set Promises 3D Sound

    Antec's New Rockus 2.1 Desktop Speaker Set Promises 3D Sound

    Antec is mostly known for their PC cases and components, but a lot of those manufacturers have been getting into other games over the last few years, and some, like Corsair, have actually come up with some really well-reviewed audio gear. Antec's soundscience rockus system (yes, they have it in all lower-case, because they're emo) was just announced, and hopes to put itself onto desktops around… Read More

  • Some classy-looking PC cases in latest from Antec

    Some classy-looking PC cases in latest from Antec

    Antec, perhaps the most popular PC case maker around, has released a couple cases which are actually quite tempting. I see a lot of gaudy cases about, but these, particularly the P183, are understated and classy. They look as if they have plenty of room, too, although it isn't as adventurous as Corsair's debut case. Read More

  • Antec Skeleton case – verdict: inconvenient

    Antec Skeleton case – verdict: inconvenient

    We saw this Skeleton case from Antec around a while ago, and although I was intrigued, I was also concerned at the design decisions that would have to be made to accommodate its open-air design. Would they nail it or blow it? Unfortunately, according to the thorough reviewers at Hardware Secrets, they blew it. Not only does the case’s fundamental design invite catastrophe in the form of… Read More

    Antec ‘Skeleton’ open-air PC case

    You guys! Look at this thing! It’s the Skeleton, a PC case from Antec unlike any other PC case you’ve ever seen before. At first glance, I mistook it for a little Weber grill. ROFL! It’s not available yet – coming soon, though – and there’s no pricing information, but here are some quick stats to prime your pump. Four drive bays – two external 5.25-inch… Read More

    So after a long day running around the LVCC it was time to head off to a 3:00 p.m. meeting with iRiver. I was looking forward to this meeting since I set it up and thankfully I was not disappointed. Read More

  • Update: Antec Nine Hundred Very Quiet

    So yesterday I mentioned a review from XYZ Computing on Antec’s Nine Hundred gaming desktop case. The big black box is loaded with three 120mm fans and one of Antec’s Big Boy 200mm fans, which the site reported, and in turn I did too, as being “not very quiet.” Well, now I’m starting to wonder if XYZ even turned the fans on. Three other reviews make it a point to… Read More

  • Antec Brings Spot Cool Fans to American Market

    This is a rather “cool” idea (HAHA!) from Antec as a way to keep the hottest parts of your computer from going nuclear. Do-it-yourself computer modding is getting more and more insane as processors get higher clockspeeds and thus hit higher temperatures. The threat of burning out your proc or system board is very real, and geeks have taken to the problem with ingenuity, with everything… Read More

  • Antec Notebook Cooler S: CrunchGear Review

    Last week at DigitalLife, we had a chance to talk to computer power supply/accessory/enclosure manufacturer Antec about some newly released and upcoming products. One of these was its USB-powered NoteBook Cooler S. At first site we were pretty unimpressed with the looks and design of the device. However, despite a couple shortcomings, it’s a pretty great little device that turned out to be… Read More
