Top of the line
Pros: Really a well thought out design, top quality workmanship. I really love the minimalist design. I have a dual-CPU server board in the case with 8TB of RAID storage and a massive GPU. Plenty of space and everything is staying very cool. I was suprised how quiet the fans are, even at full speed. I really like the simple, but effective drive mounts.
Cons: Although pretty much everything attaches with thumb-screws, you still need the occasional screwdriver.
Other Thoughts: Newegg does a great job at getting stuff delivered fast. They are always faster than other equipment dealers I use.

Superb Aluminum Full Size Case
Pros: - Aluminum
Cons: - Heavy for Aluminum Case (doesn't bother me, but worth noting)
Other Thoughts: Overall an excellent case. I am very pleased with this purchase, as I feel it was well worth the high price tag. There is a little room for improvement, but a superb case when it comes down to it.

Beautiful but bad
Pros: I purchased this case because I liked its simple, yet elegant appearance, and it could accommodate all my components. I thought the front cover would make it quieter. I was wrong in that regard.
Cons: This was the third computer I built in the space of six months with essentially the same components. I used two to three 15k rpm serial scsi drives in a raid 0 for software, swap space, etc., combined with three SATA 7.2k drives in a raid 5. The vibration from them in this case produced an acceptable sound level. The problem is the way they are mounted. The side mount screws have rubber washers that are inadequate, and therefore transfer the vibration to the vertical metal plates that support the drive compartments. These plates are too flimsy, and vibrate themselves, which seems to be the source of the noise generation. I contemplated remanufacturing the case, but then decided to use it only occasionally for testing new software, and when I had a lot a number crunching. (All computers are used as engineering workstations, with no games.)
Other Thoughts: I know the noise is a fault of Lian-Li case for two reasons: (1) I did not have the problem with the same drive setup in an Antec P180, which was very crowded with all the drives, and a Thermaltake Armor MX, which looked somewhat geeky to me. (2) I sequentially pulled the drives but kept them connected. Sound levels progressively went down.
