Default Antec Three Hundred?

I found an Antec Three Hundred listed on one of my local computer store's website for only 430HKD, which is about 54USD. It's like a little brother to the very popular Antec 900.

Any thoughts? I might consider getting this over a Cooler Master 690 or a Cooler Master Centurion 590, which are both actually about 10USD more expensive here.

Looks pretty nice. I have the 900 and my only gripe at all is that cable management is very difficult.

The 300 looks essentially like the 900 minus the 250 mm fan on top and the buttons relocated to the front. I think I would choose it over the 690. My 900 with all fans on low is very quiet and cools very well, that looks as if it would do the same.

I just hope cables are easier to handle...

look up a youtube video of cable management for the 900. It is a nice way and i wish antec did it themself because the cable management is a pain, and i got 4 HDD's -.-

Also the 900 doesn't come with a side fan -.-...
