5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Just got this case to make my 1st mini atx computer for my wife, who just gets on the internet mainly, its pretty nice little case. Lots of screws tho, can be alittle tricky pluging in everything and making it look nice, but overall i love it, she loves it, i hightly recommend this case, if they still make it? I might have gotten the last one lol?
Oh ya slide out mother board tray is freaking nice feature.

Cons: Alot of screws, cd metal plate covers can be slight pain to take off and put back on, no biggy. Wont take any eggs for for screws, this case is just awsome, i love it, you will to!

Other Thoughts: Maybe side display panel? See the insides.

4 out of 5 eggsWrong Color, Lots of screws.

Pros: Looks nice, fit everything well, quiet so far.

Cons: They sent the wrong color... Maybe because they ran out?

Lots of screws. When someone states in a review that there are MANY small screws.. they aren't kidding!

Other Thoughts: I wish I knew how to get the black paint off... If it gets scratched or perma-etched by finger grease.. I'll figure something out =0D

3 out of 5 eggsExtremely Annoying Case, Looks Pretty

Pros: - Aluminum Finish looks great
- Light
- Small Size
- Fans are huge and cool very well
- Quiet
- Portable for LAN parties
- Slide Out Motherboard Tray (see cons)

Cons: - Interior Design is a mess. 3.5" Hard Drive Bay with fan behind it is one of the worst designed I've ever seen, you have to use anti-vibration rubber grommets in conjunction with thumbscrews and both parts come off easily or don't slide well onto this "track" that they've put in place. There's no easy place for an SSD (no 2.5" bay) and even with a 3.5" adapter like I used it doesn't go on the track well. I basically put one screw on each side which secures it fine but it's not ideal IMO. Also, if you put a hard drive in the top track, the lian li fan is jammed right up against the SATA power connector. Thankfully the fans have fan grills on them but this is just bush league.
- Doesn't fit a tower cooler of any kind, you'll need low profile. I bought a relatively small Rosewill 92mm tower fan/heatsink and it's heatpipes just barely pushed into the power supply so it was a no-go. The design could have been slightly different to accommodate this, even in micro atx.

Other Thoughts: Just a few more cons - Side panels require a zillion screws as others have mentioned just to get it off. They also look chinsy, if you have any cabling that isn't fung shuei'd, it may bow the side panel out. It looks like someone took some cardboard and put it on the side. Also, they don't provide a lot of screws.

OK, all complaints aside, the tower once assembled and kinks ironed out looks great. I really do like the aesthetics, and it's extremely light for a LAN party. It fit my micro atx motherboard and full-size video card just fine. Still, it's easily one of the most annoying cases I've had to build in, and I've got two other machines running in a similarly sized Thermaltake LanBox Lite. For my first foray into Lian Li, it's a bit of a disappointment, although at least it looks nice.

5 out of 5 eggsSmart style!

Pros: Very nice looking. All corners are square and the box fits togther sqaure. The brushed finish is well done and it just looks really nice.

You can fit a real heat sink on the CPU and the forward fans are large and a rear two is also nice for hard drives. Nothing shoddy or cheap about this. Extra screws and a polished finish!

Cons: It is small but theoretically you have 6 bays to put hidden stuff into. The slide out tray MoBo tray is nice but it helps to think through the assembly. The docs are thin but the pictures are good.

You can't fit an 850 watt ATX power supply inside but almost. The lines coming out the back hang up so don't buy a small micro power supply as it will fit a small ATX supply.

The metal is very light so handle with a little bit of care if you need to deliver this on a nice desk. It can scratch easily. Think through the assmebly as these small cases require things done well.

Other Thoughts: If you need something attractive and well made this one is a good choice. I got it with a typical newegg deal and am quite happy.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall footprint, but everything went in

Pros: All Aluminum design. Every panel comes off. Everything fit in I wanted, even a HD6950 10 in card with two PCI power pins on top of card. Two 2TB drive and a SSD drive. Fits onto a standard AV rack or console. Supports FULL atx powersupply I've got RaidMax 850W PSU.

Cons: VERY cramped, expected. The rear HD fan can't accommodate the power/SATA cable for the HD, so I'm not sure why they even bothered with that fan, this was removed on my build. You had to, if you want your HDD plugged in. My SSD is floating in one of the internal 5.25 bays, which I don't mind. Slightly noisier than my HTPC build but I think that's due to HD6950.

Other Thoughts: Since Diablo III came out, I had to upgrade. The weakest link being Videocard. But I still wanted a small footprint, low power HTPC style box that will fit in my AV rack. Most Slim desktop states it will accommodate a 11inch Video card, YEAH IF YOU DON"T plug in the PCI power!!!! This was the only box small enough and able to acommodate everything I wanted, even 4TB of disk space!!! No the prettiest but works for me.

4 out of 5 eggsI love it, and I'm also afraid to ever open it again

Pros: - very compact for the capacity it has
- quality of construction seems good

Cons: - internal hard drive bay only closes with creative choice and routing of connectors
- sliding motherboard tray will sometimes only close with creative routing and sequencing of connections!

Other Thoughts: I'm basically just writing because after putting in a GTX 285 card, I think I can say what the largest card this case can handle is. 267 mm long and the various power and sata cables have to be squished against the front of the case to get through. And as for height, this card's top is in line with the top of the full-height card bracket, but with the PCI-X power connectors attached to the top of the card, you have to make the connection with the tray half out using the little space where there's a gap in the bottom of the internal hard drive bay, then flatten out the wires running into those connectors by bending them as much as possible while you close up the tray. Final connection was the front audio -- snaking it's way through the whole case to get to the opposite corner it needs to go to -- which can be made with the tray sticking out no more than about 2 cm.
With all the other components crammed into this case it feels like it's about to burst at the seams, but it works great

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is a perfect Micro ATX case to make a high end gaming rig. Has enough room to put in a 7970, multiple HDDs, Blu Ray, and I was even able to stick in a 120mm radiator for water cooling. It has a ton of space for a case smaller then my sub woofer. It also runs cool, which is very impressive.

Cons: The clearance between the side of the video card and the support rails is very tight. I had to remove my video card's heatsink to install the card and motherboard. Once I got them in I then had to blindly install the heatsink while everything was in the case. It took a little longer then I expected but I can't complain all that much. I'm sticking a 7970 with a dual fan and 5 heat pipe HSF into a mirco ATX case!

Other Thoughts: I was able to shove a high end, water cooled desktop into a micro ATX case and have it run near silent, very cool, and have enough room to add more stuff later. What more can I ask for?

5 out of 5 eggsSweet little case

Pros: Smallish, high quality, looks great. Fun build.

Cons: not a con for me, but if you are getting this case you will definitely want a modular power supply.

Other Thoughts: I bought this so I could hide it away in my ikea bookshelf. It has the perfect dimensions for doing so and looks great. The build was actually fun as you had to really pay attention to how you route the cables (i guess i like a challenge). I highly recommend this case if you are looking for something a little different. It is a little bigger than it looks in the pictures, but not by much.

4 out of 5 eggsgood for low power, quiet server

Pros: Sleek looking, quiet (silient) oepration due to 2x 120mm Fans, Additioanl quiet fan at the rear for coling hard drives, light weight due to aluminum construction. Roomy case with good space for airflow, drives and accessories.

Cons: No quick access to case - need to remove many small cone head screws. You need to pretty much take both sides of the case off to work on it - mostly for wire management - so lots of little screw to keep track off that I'm afraid I may lose and that are not any sort of standard PC type screw that you may have around from other builds. Also the back area where you can load 2x 3.5 inch drive with a fan right behind them in the carrier feels like a bit of an afterthought and working with the fan every time you access drives in the rear bay is a bit of a nuisance but it is a good use of space in the case and does get you 2 more drives that are pretty well cooled which is a good thing.

Other Thoughts: Another issue I had that can't really be held against the case since it’s a bit of an odd ball thing I did the 5.25 to 3.5" adapter (meant for loading a floppy in the case) doesn't actually let the floppy drive through the 3.5" opening and in fact has about a 1/8 inch overlap on top of the floppy drive which I can understand was done for aesthetics. My build used a 3.5 inch to 2x 2.5” SSD hot plug adapter so I needed to manually file the shroud to get my SSD hot plug adapter in there. So far happy with the build and my client is happy that they have a silent ‘mac looking’ server with a lot of power for running 6 remote desktops (terminal services) rather than a large industrial looking HP or Dell server.

3 out of 5 eggsLian Li PC-V351A Black Case

Pros: The case is everything I expected.

Cons: Case screws: since they have to be removed for most hardware service and they are easily lost, it would be nice to have been supplied an extra set (12) of these small easily lost screws. I have not found replacement screws from Lian Li nor NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: I would buy another V351 if the case screw problem is ever resolved.
