Antec Sonata II Reviewed (Verdict: Once You Go Black...)

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

We normally steer clear of commodity PC parts (except video cards, because, well, those make everyone happy), but I've had an Antec Sonata case for the better part of a year and am a big fan. It's quiet, it's nice looking without being fruity, and it wasn't expensive as these things go. Now Antec has the second generation 'Sonata II' out, with a even quieter design (they ditched those punched holes in the side) and a better power supply. If you're looking for a top-shelf case that might help your PC from sounding like a whirlwind, check it out (just don't plug in the eye-searing front LEDs).
