Antec Sonata: List the things that drive you mad about it

Okay, so after much researching, I went with this case back in February '05.

Beautiful...just absolutely beautiful exterior finish.

Marvelous innovative swing-panel design.

Awesome quick-release tensioners voiding need for superfluous mini- screws to stabilize drives.

Just a couple MAJOR BRAIN-FARTS.

Fixed Right panel. So you can't remove and dust behind the mobo.

Perforations, allow dust to be deposited on whatever surface lies beneath. On [R] it is the mobo, PSU wall, and drive bay walls. On [L] it is the same drive bay walls, and one of the horizontal support beams.

Dust deposition on the drive bay front mounts, and the front vent.

Strangely enough for what I needed, I decided even-though I'd never be able to EASILY clean under the mobo...I would still get this case.

So...just a quick poll.

Should Antec give those of us who were the guinea pigs on this brain-fart a trade-up credit, to get the Sonata II.

Maybe they should give them a vacuum cleaner and a dust rag.
