Antec Dark Fleet DF-35 Mid Tower Case Review

Conclusion
Overall I’m not really impressed with this case. It lacks some simple features that even $50 cases have now-a-days. While the sleek design and unique features to make this a nice case, the DF-35 misses some of the basic features that cases should have in 2010.

The DF-35 has an MSRP of $139.95, but it can be found online for around $110 at your favorite e-tailer. This case, in my opinion, isn’t really a cost-effective case. While it does have some nice features, it still lacks the basic fundamentals of a case for this price range. Overall ThinkComputers would like to award the Antec Dark Fleet DF-35 Mid Tower Case 7 out of 10 score.

Pros:

  • Hot-swap support
  • Two front access doors
  • Fan control
  • Sleek design

Cons:

  • Lacks basic “tool-free” installation
  • Front bezel isn’t easily removable
  • Cheap expansion bay covers (not reusable)
  • Unnecessary motherboard I/O plate
  • No User Manual
