5 out of 5 eggsA Work of Art

Pros: -Beautiful design, the photos don't do it justice
-Compact, yet enough room to build a fully-featured system
-Decently-designed cooling/fan placement
-Placement of drives makes it easy to connect all with just one power cord
-Included optical drive and floppy bezels give the finished system a very finished, uniform look without obstructing access to drives
-Despite lack of window, looks really neat with lights inside, if you're into that sort of thing

Cons: -The included fans are obscenely loud, plan on getting new ones.
-As others have mentioned, the layout is highly unusual, and some video cards may not fit properly due to placement of the power supply. I didn't have a problem with my Quadro, but many higher-end desktop cards (not workstation cards) will be too large.

Other Thoughts: I spent a long time case-shopping for my new desktop system, and I'm glad I chose this one. It's compact, yet has enough room for everything I need in a desktop PC, and it looks awesome on my desk. While the video card size issue may be a dealbreaker for some users, it's definitely a great case in all other areas. Just don't be too attached to the fans that come with it.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit full sized video cards

Pros: A very solid case. Open and airy

Cons: Have to take out entire framework to mount CDROM and other bay items. With the forward mounting power supply, it decreases the room to fit cards into the case. Both my 8800 GEForce and the Radeon HD 4250 don't fit with the power cord to the cards attached.

Pros: Nice case

Cons: Listed dimensions are wrong. The 12 inches are closer to 17 inches. I bought this since it would have fit as a carry-on item. Will be returned.

4 out of 5 eggsFollow up after installation.

Pros: Still a solid case with great build quality; that has not changed. Subdued look but very attractive w. no annoying lights. All the ventilation points and fans work together very well to keep air moving inside the system. --- Thanks for the throw-back system speaker and floppy drive caddy. I am a holdout who loves his floppies and Windows 2000 needs one at the F6 driver point. --- I was also able to screw rubber feet on the sides at vent holes to sit the system on its side.

Cons: The unit accepted my Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L v.2 and full-height ATI Radeon X600 just fine. But the LED and power/reset cables could be too short on the odd board out there. --- I had to cut a portion of the strain relief on the internal powercord extension so that the C13 angle-plug could clear the sorrounding metal. (Removing the strain relief allowed for the cord to bend more sharply and eliminated bulk.) --- I had to add rubber build-up at the bezel's floppy button to reach the eject button on my FDD. I also had to mod the FDD with pliers and a toothed ziptie head to add bulk there as well. The face plate is designed such that it stops the FDD from reaching as far forward as it was need to make contact w. the bezel button.

Other Thoughts: The extra system noise comes in great part from the powersupply venting forward and towards the user's ears and not a wall. But I work in a datacenter sorrounded by hundreds of servers so this nothing in comparison. As others have said, you need the proper screw driver or an 8-inch phillips extension for your magnetic handle. --- Get all your tools and components ready so that the system gets build in one sitting.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst LL case, very impressed.

Pros: Arrived in intact packaging and in mint condition. Super expedient delivery just before the weekend project was to begin. --- The build quality is very good and the folds and joints in the metal are excellent. --- Plenty of ventilation and attachments for fans, which can be slowed down or replaced with quieter, beefier fans as needed. --- The motherboard face plate looks like it will fit my Gugabyte board after I lost the original.

Cons: None yet. This is my first case and I just unpacked it. If LL did their job, I won't have much to complain about and a lot tto praise. I have a grinder and a Dremel so there is little that can get past me that I cannot mod to fit. --- I have to get used to the unit venting hot air to the front, but so be it.

Other Thoughts: Thanks Newegg for the freakin' fast delivery. I ordered on Wednesday late afternoon and you got it here in time for the weekend.

3 out of 5 eggsNice HTPC Case/Poor Desktop Case

Pros: - Nice craftsmanship
- Perfect for HTPC

Cons: - Does not fit newer, larger video cards (e.g. 260 GTX)

Other Thoughts: I purchased this case to replace my abysmal Silverstone SUGO SG02-BF case I bought to build my own SFF PC around the i7 920. The layout and setup was great until I put my power supply, video card (nVidia 260 GTX), and mobo in. The power supply extended an inch into where the video card would go. If you are building a PC with on-board video or with a video card under 10.5 inches, the case isn't bad. Otherwise, avoid it. I RMA'd it and bought the Lian-Li PC-V351B and it worked great for such a setup.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Beautiful case, very usable once it's set up.

Cons: There are two smaller system fans in the rear, above the mobo panel. Because they're so small, they are also LOUD. It's not too bad in a desktop PC environment, but if you intend to use this as an HTPC (it's not designed for it) replace those fans. The PSU is hard to get mounted correctly, and once you do it makes it nearly impossible to access the screws to release the 5.25" cage. Also, it comes with a floppy bezel in the bottom 5.25" bay. Why? Why no plain bezel? WHO HAS A FLOPPY ANYMORE?

Other Thoughts: I agree the 3.5" mounts arent rock solid. There is a catch to hold them in their rails though. It's not very obvious, and the instructions are horrible. One 8.5"x11" sheet, identical on both sides (one side is Chinese).

4 out of 5 eggsNice HTPC

Pros: Lian quality.Very flex-able

Cons: Tight fit for most (Full ATX Mobo) Need sound deadning pads.I really did'nt like the layout of the Hard Drives on the side because they make a (LOW Frequency Humm) being on there sides so chek this out I use 4 Notebook hard Drives 2 in RAID-0 1 for downloads and 1 for Media Center movie storage all in this unit here>>StarTech SATABAY425BK 4 x 2.5" SAS/SATA RAID Backplane for 5.25" Bay.all from Newegg.Hard drive setup is this Seagate Momentus 7200.2 ST980813AS 80GB 7200 RPM<<RAID-0 and 1 of the same size for Downloads and for Movies>>>Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9500420AS 500GB 7200 RPM. Powered by Intel E8500 Wolfdale CPU and Vista x64 with a Imon soundgraph VFD display and a Evermedia TV tuner its quiet and run cool with no problems none at all.

Other Thoughts: I use this as one of my HTPCs. The best fitting full ATX mobo I found to fit this case is the DFI (Bloodiron) mobo and yes it is a full ATX mobo I even install the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45.and a DFI LANPARTY DK P35-T2RS both fit but was a tight squeese.but the Bloodiron fits well.and i use a SILVERSTONE ST50EF-SC 500W ATX because it is a (Short Cable) model thats why it has the (SC) in the model number.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, but not the Perfect HTPC

Pros: It is a beautiful desktop case, with a brushed aluminum finish like I have never seen in 16 years of building computers. Fits a full sized ATX motherboard with a good amount of working room for a desktop case. Pre-tied cable routing, and additional plastic snap ties to keep things clear and clean.

Cons: The power supply mounting. The Power supply mounts in the front, using a dedicated extension cord and hides the switch mounted on a power supply (if your P/S has one). This compounds with the fact that the power supply will cover the screws required to remove the 5.25" cage, and basically makes mounting a 5.25" drive an ordeal that includes removing the power supply. System fans are cheap and loud. If your care about noise, just buy new fans as part of your order.

Other Thoughts: The only difficult part of this system to swap and upgrade will be drives in the 5.25 bay, and I suggest this is done in the very beginning of a build. I am disappointed by lack of tension in the tool-less 3.5" HD mounts, and while the general mounting idea is ideal for a case of this type, I would like to see some sort of a screw or catch to secure the drives. While I appreciate this cases compact design, I would have preferred it to be just about 1" wider so it could sit even in a home stereo rack. Despite other reviewers claims, this isn't really a HTPC case, and due to its diminished width, I could never sell it to a client who wants it to sit nice in their entertainment center with the rest of their audio equipment. This was my first Lian Li, and despite their prestige and exterior beauty, I will probably stick with Antec in the future. Their cases just "work better" on the inside.

5 out of 5 eggsLian Li

Pros: If your looking for a high quality, low profile case for a HTPC that can still fit a full size ATX M/B (max size: 12"x 9.6") then this is it. Lian Li continues to impress me with high quality cases. I have a Mid Size case, the 65B Model I bought about 5 years ago still kickin'. Awesome!

Cons: none really...

Other Thoughts: Not really and con but I thought it was alittle heavy. I think its because they used a heavier gauge Aluminum for the top and bottom covers. But, it more less shows me that their made very well. I was actually impressed with how much room there was to put things in when I was building it.
