External appearance – up frontThe front of the Antec 1200 features meshed drive bays - with, astonishingly, room for 12 devices in total. With thick black plastic edging on both sides of the front, the chassis retains a purposeful look.
The operating end of the Antec 1200 has seen some improvement, with the buttons and ports coming forward to the front of the chassis, neatly fitted into a sloping panel at the top. The usual fare is here - twin USB 2.0 ports, plus mic and headphone sockets, along with the now more-commonly seen eSATA port.
Power and reset buttons have been placed at opposite extremities - the reset on the left and the larger power button on the right.
