As I've said in many previous reviews, silence is very close to my heart, so it's always interesting to see and hear the new "quiet" cases. Antec also has a long history on this area with their Performance One- and Sonata-series of cases, and the...

Over the years we have seen many new products come onto the market from Antec and every now and again they release a fresh updated version of an existing product. The Solo II bears no surprises that its predecessor is the original Solo case that was...

The Solo II is a very nice, solid case which manages to keep the hardware inside quite quiet. It feels like a quality unit and has pleasing aesthetics. It is, however, rather expensive for a mid-tower case. It does look and feel like a high-end case,...

After spending some time with the Antec SOLO II, I'm going to say that we have a winner in loser's clothing. This may cause a few people to pass it by if they see it on a store shelf, but hear me out. On one hand, users will get a super-solid case...

Overall, Antec has done a great job at redesigning the Solo for the Solo II. It offers some of the same features that many loved in the original while making it more modern and useful for today’s case standards. There is certainly a lot in the case...

What constitutes a perfect chassis? Different readers will have different opinions, but for many of the HEXUS staff, the perfect chassis would be one that's not too big, not too brash and not too loud.That criteria would explain why we've taken a...

The Antec SOLO II is as quiet as they come. The new Antec TrueQuiet fan remains silent even on the highest setting and it requires a closer inspection to discern between the fan speed changes. Adding two more TrueQuiet fans for intake will...

Antec has a strong pedigree in low to mid-range, no-nonsense cases, and the Solo II we have got our mitts on here shows Antec can also throw their hat in the higher end case market as well.However, as price tags increase in the case market,...

Antec Solo II is well balanced case for homeuser. It has enough space for both larger graphics cards and fanslots are well placed. Cooling with stock fans is more than enough for your everyday computer, but high end users might want to add an extra...

Quality (30% of the total score) Although the Solo II is a very simple looking case, the chassis design is sophisticated and the materials used of very high quality. It may look like any other tower case, even somewhat frail considering that the top...

Video Review: The Antec Solo 2 Case is a elegant looking case with lots of great features. It's all black, lots of drive bays, fans, tool-less design, hole on motherboard tray, cable management holes and more. It also has acoustic dampending...

The original Antec Solo was a landmark in quiet computing, and remains a very nice case, even today, six years after its launch. The Solo II brings many expected upgrades like a motherboard tray cutout, USB 3.0 (with a proper internal 20-pin header)...

When it comes to sound, the Solo II only slightly better than it's predecessor the Solo. A 120 mm True Quiet exhaust fan helps to keep noise down and temperatures lower. The build goes slower than other mid-sized towers due the layout, but the layout...

If you're looking for a new quiet case that you can fit some large parts in then the Antec Sonata Series Solo II is worth a look at with an MSRP of $129.99 and 3 year warranty....

When we reviewed Antec's Sonata IV recently, we found it left a lot to be desired. Antec had updated their Sonata design, but barely, and the enclosure as a whole felt grossly behind the times. Apparently some of Antec's engineers agreed, because...

Antec SOLO II to obudowa zdecydowanie bardziej udana w stosunku do poprzedniczki. Producent tym razem ustrzegł się większości drobnych niedociągnięć i przygotował urządzenie kompletne. Trzeba zwrócić uwagę przede wszystkim na bardzo stylowy, elegancki...
