Has Antec made drive trays that support the newer HD screw positions (used by high platter count HDs)?

The current P280 trays would need to be retooled and there is no evidence on their website that they have been. So only two screws can be used which is not entirely satisfactory. The latest Antec case - the P110 Luce - does have revised trays that enable high capacity HDs to be mounted with four screws.

Hmm...the P100 is still for sale (Newegg has it in stock) and it uses the P280 trays:

If they want to keep selling the product and avoid returns, it seems to me they have to update. No?

Yes, Antec should have revised the drive trays. The P100 came out a couple of years after the P280 if I remember correctly and by then the need for a new tray design was patently obvious. Why Antec nevertheless proceeded to fit the outdated P280 trays to the P100 is not clear. Perhaps for reasons of economy. Maybe owners have just got by with two screws and have not pressed Antec over the issue.
