I recently ordered an Antec P280 case and was very disappointed. I came from a Cosmos 1000 and love the solid feel and look of it. Not only was the P280 damaged (going to rma) but it just felt cheap. It feels like a downgrade.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

The Cosmos 1000 is a full-towe case that costs $220+ case and the P280 is a mid-sized case for $120. There will be weight differences that can be misconstrued as a quality decrease and there will be quality differences in cases with that much price difference. Take a look at the Rosewill Thor, the Thermaltake Element V, the Antec DF-85 or Antec 1200. In the mid-sized arena you can take a look at the Fractal Design Define R3; it will be similar to the P280 in weight/design quality.

I dont think you can do much better than this for bang on the money.
