“How did Antec become the world's #1 brand of high-performance computer components?
The year was 1986. Starbucks had only a few stores. Don Johnson was actually cool. The average PC had less memory than today’s mobile phones. And in Fremont, California, a little company named Antec was born. Antec’s first employees never imagined that their upstart firm would rise to the very top of the high-performance computer components industry. But rise it did. And rather swiftly, too.
So what can Antec do for you? That depends on who you are. If you’re a computer user, and you’d like to upgrade your existing computer or build a new one yourself, we’ve got the computer cases, power supplies, cooling fans, lighting components, and accessories that you need. If you’re a system builder or VAR, we’ll help you deliver reliable and cost-effective systems to your customers. And if you’re a retailer, we’ll help you reach an explosively growing market: namely, “do-it-yourself” computer users who enjoy building and upgrading their own computers.
We’re headquartered in Fremont, California, with additional offices in the Netherlands, Europe. We’ve also established distribution partnerships throughout Australia and Southeast Asia. So you’ll find Antec products in over 25 countries. But no matter how large we grow, we’ll never forget our mission: to give you the power you need to create the computer you really want. That’s the Antec way. That’s the Power of You.”
Antec has this to say about the Fusion:
“Fusion, the newest member of the Veris family of enclosures, seamlessly blends Quiet Computing, versatility and impeccable style to media PCs. Utilizing an innovative three chamber thermal design and Quiet Computing features like vibration-dampening silicone grommets, it is so quiet you won’t have to relegate your media PC to a closet to make out the softest passages in your favourite movies or music. Combined with a highly-efficient 430W power supply with active PFC, you can rest assured that the Fusion will be a good citizen on the power grid even as it quietly records your favourite shows.”
Up for review today we have the Antec Fusion, a case from the Veris range, designed specifically for media center applications.
If you haven’t heard of Antec then you don’t deserve to call yourself an enthusiast, as they are one of the best and oldest case makers around.
So now that Antec’s credibility has been established lets get on with reviewing the Fusion!
