Good case with a few headscratchers

Pros: +Very clean looking
+Excellent build quality. Lian Li is top-tier in that area, in my opinion
+Love the many airflow holes
+Extremely light, surprised me when I picked it up

Cons: +Lack of specifications, at least here on Newegg, particularly the PSU. See "Other".
+Photos clearly show that it's able to be sat on it's side, but when I tried to install the feet, the side is missing the 2nd hole needed to fit them. In the end, I ended up having to cut the plastic piece off, just to use it in this configuration.

Other Thoughts: Here's the deal with the PSU:
It can fit and ATX PSU, but to do so, you need to remove the HDD/SSD mounting plate. If you do this, you can only fit in a single SSD comfortably. You could squeeze a 3.5" or second SSD, but things would be messy. Without the mounting plate, you install the storage device on the back of the case, by the IO panel.

Ideally, you should buy an SFX unit, however. With that, you could fit up to three 2.5" devices, or a 3.5"+2.5" combo.

Great quality, looks nice, compact, but AIO is hard to install

Pros: - Great quality. It's made with brushed aluminum.
- Toolless design
- Looks beautiful and expensive
- All the pros above fitted in a very compact space

Cons: - AIO fan/case fan is tricky to install. Make sure you've planned everything before you start!!
- No dust filter, seriously??? I'm lucky that the ones from my old case fit on this one, but you definitely need to buy your if you don't have any.

Excecllent Case

Pros: Let me first say that I have a love affair with anything Lian Li, there is a build quality unmatched by any other manufacturer. The edges are all smooth, the punching or water/laser cutting is perfect. The finish done with the anodizing has no compromise. The simplistic approach used by Lian Li is a real winner as well, there is nothing extra that doesn't offer a use or provide a feature. There are very few rivets used, almost all components come together with drilled, tapped and self centering screws which makes it easy to take the entire case apart and reassemble it without misalignment. This use of screws also allows you to remove parts you don't plan to use without drilling out rivets. Lastly, I love that the two side and top are help in place via snap-in ball studs instead of unsightly screws. Makes it very clean looking and allows you to remove panels easily simply by prying on the edge of the panel. The plastic inserts are replaceable if that break but I have never had any fail.

Cons: I wish this case came without the USB and mic/phones plugs. Perhaps a top cover that does not have the hole punched? Some folks will want these ports but I have no use. I remove the USB and mic/phones plug and covered that area with imitation carbon fiber vinyl, that's all you see through the hole in the top cover.

Other Thoughts: This case covers all the points I look for, especially the clean and neat look and finish.
