my roomate's aunt makes $83/hr on the laptop. She has been without work for 8 months but last month her pay was $8682 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site...NuttyRich.com

I've been a huge fan of Lian Li cases, and just bought my fifth or sixth one. But it may be the last if they don't stop clowning around, and get back 'on track' (in a much less literal way).

Lian Li needs to actually listen to PC builders' needs. Their whole last generation of motherboard trays has the CPU-cooler backplate cutout in the wrong place. Their tool-less drive locking mechanisms get decidedly mixed reviews. Their cases are cramped, and don't include enough cable-management options. And they don't offer modular drive cages that would allow installation of the longest graphics cards. These are all standard features in other manufacturers' low-end cases, never mind the premium models.

I still went with Lian Li for my new PC because I do like their clean, simple designs, and their elegant ALUMINUM construction. But they need to start building on those strengths, or the world is going to leave them behind.

It's a novelty item for PC builds and nothing more. Don't over react and just respect the fact they're willing to go outside the box compared to some of the other companies out there.

There's out of the box, and a different box altogether. Like was mentioned below.. Lian-Li has lost their way. Don't they have anything more important to put their development crew working on?

If you look at what they've done thus far, their collection is nearly twice as big as the next makers catalog of cases. Lian Li cases simply do not wear out that often to be worried about creating the next great thing.

Yes, they still leave a few things on the table to improve on all of their designs. But the variety of choices kind of makes up for it. Few will ever make the perfect case. If Lian Li makes the perfect case, it would be hell trying to get our hands on one.

It's an interesting design, but the gimmick ends there. I don't see anyone not specifically designing their computer area around a case like that, being able to take advantage of HAVING a case like that. It's like having a really cool car, but not being able to drive it. You can tell people, "Hey, it really moves!"... but never actually be able to show them. Not very practical to have your case moving all around while trying to use it either. Taking it to events to show off poses it's own challenges as well. I would be interesting in seeing it, but wouldn't consider buying.
I like Lian-Li in general, but haven't really found anything they have that pulls me to choose them over, say, Cooler Master. I DID consider Lian-Li back when I was considering a phase change cooling solution, since they had a specific model and addon for that. Now though, each to their own. I'm currently running a HAF932 and used a CM Mystique before that.
