     Today we received a pleasant surprise package from Antec, their new addition to the "Performance One" series, the P182. The P182 is much like Antec's original award winning P180, but with some new innovative features that we are very happy to see. I'll admit it, the P180 is one of my favorite cases ever. The P180 is a very high quality case, built beefy and strong, with some of the best features I've ever seen in a case, and it just looks great! Sometimes a good computer case reminds you of your favorite car... So with the P180 being one of the great computer cases of all time, it's a good thing the P182 is simply a better version. Let's have a look at the Antec P182 and see just how much better it is than the P180.
