High quality case
Pros: Unsurprisingly, this case is very high quality, and surprisingly light. Lian-Li has a reputation for building very good cases, and this is an example of why. It's roomy, very well finished with all of the edges rolled over, and well designed.
Cons: There are only two things about this case that bother me. the first is that in order to access the 5.25" drive bays, you have to open the front door which houses the intake fans. This was clearly a carefully thought out design decision, and the layout is this way to provide maximum airflow, but it's still somewhat of a bother. The other thing that bothers me is how thin and flexible the side pannels are. This isn't a problem once you've got them on the case, as the whole thing is very solid, but whenever I take one off to work inside the case, I feel like I have to be extra careful with the pannel so I don't damage it.
Overall Review: This is the first Lian-Li case I've owned personally, but I've worked with cases by several manufacturers, and this is one of the best I've had the pleasure to work with. I considered the P-60 due to the price difference, but am glad I went with the P-80. The extra space inside makes working in this case wonderfully easy, and as the basis for my new i7 gaming rig, this was the right choice.
Fast disk, if it works
Pros: Fast and stable in a hardware RAID on an LSI-9266 in a Linux server.
Cons: 2 of 10 disks arrived DOA. Newegg is very good at issuing and processing RMAs, so no problems there.
Overall Review: While these drives are cheap, it's not a bad deal, but that we had a 20% failure rate out of the box, it's unlikely that we'll order more of this particular drive.
