Performance wise nothing has changed between the P180 and the P182. You can get a refresher of cooling results with the P180 here. The P182 still has the same goals, provide great cooling performance while remaining as quiet as possible. Cooling performance is exceptional considering the noise level (or lack of) In most cases you give up cooling for silence, or give up silence for cooling, that’s not the case with the P182 (or P180 for that matter)
..In the looks department the P182 is still one of the classiest looking cases on the market in my opinion. If you are looking for a little more "bling" Antec offers a special edition of the P182 that includes mirror finish stainless steel side panels and a black anodized interior. Or if that’s just not enough for you, keep an eye our for the P190, a steel, dual power supply behemoth of an enclosure.
..All in all this is still my enclosure of choice, it looks great and performance is top notch. There is not any other enclosure currently on the market that I personally would choose over the P182. Antec doesn’t skimp on quality, and that’s obvious in the Performance One series enclosures.
