I had realistically lower expectations, but am pleased

Summary: Anyway I really like the case but again I was looking for a simple stylish silver case. I would say the main plus I am seeing right now is it is fairly quiet and does not seem to get hot or loud with gaming.
Pros: This is my 3rd PC build in the last 8 years so I have some ability, but in no way am an expert. I had a budget in mind and decided to cheap out a little bit on the case - trying to keep it around $100. My last PC had this giant black plastic looking case so I wanted to try a case that would match...
Cons: It had everything I needed but then again I was looking for a basic, elegant looking, non a giant plastic gaming type of deal that I previously had. I guess the only con was it does not have a clear window on side - I looked to see if there was one that I could add later but I did not fine one yet.
Summary: Even though it has a few problems, the case is too unique and great looking to give it anything lower than 4 eggs
Pros: The case looks amazing, the build quality and the feel of the brushed aluminum is similar to that of an Apple computer. if not better. Was easy enough to set up other than a few gripes Also since the case is made out of Aluminum it sort of acts as a giant heatsink, basically, it stays very cold i...
Cons: I have a few nitpicks about the case and a larger problem: - Rudimentary cable management - Fans aren't the quietest things in the world, front 140mm whines a bit - Mounting a CPU cooler from the back without having to remove the mobo will be impossible for some motherboards because one part of t...
Summary: - I did not use or even test out the included fans. I installed a couple Noctuas right away. - This case looks great, in my opinion. I don't like most gamer-styled cases out there, and this is a very nice, classy, subdued design.
Pros: - High build quality. Everything just fits so well - no jury rigging or forcing pieces needed at all. - Adequate cooling. 2x 140mm intake fans in the front (only one fan+filter included). 1x 120mm exhaust fan in the rear (included). Two holes with rubber grommets are right under the fan space for...
Cons: - The USB ports and sound jacks on top are of mediocre quality. When I plugged in a USB cable or audio cable it just felt...odd. I don't think they'll break off or anything, but they do not have the same high quality as the rest of the case. - No optical drive bezel is included. Lian Li sells a s...
Summary: I went from an Antec P182 beast that I absolutely loved. But it was old and dying. This case is not a proper replacement, but I do not regret buying the Lian Li. I was expecting it to be a little smaller, the specs are correct so I am not putting it in the "Con" section.
Pros: Lightweight design, decent cable management opportunities. Clips seem to be constructed well and intuitively. Minimalist design is exactly how I wanted it.
Cons: The top rear fan hits the protective grate consistently. I have taken it off and troubleshooted to what I could, but with no luck. I will likely have to bend or take of the metal cover so it does not continue. It also squeaks whenever moved. Overall loud case.
Summary: I'm using an older Thermalright 120 cooler on my CPU that requires at least 161mm of clearance in the case to install properly, so the PC-9N was on the short list of cases for me. I'm happy to report that it fits well here.
Pros: Roomy, lightweight, superbly constructed, lots of room for big video cards and tall CPU coolers, stunning to look at.
Cons: "Flimsy" isn't the right word, but this case, being all-aluminum, does have some flex to it that might be disconcerting if you've only had steel cases. It is not weak by any stretch.
Summary: Side panel gets hot when video card is fully loaded, I have the EVGA 780 Classified version so there is no space to install extra side fan, which is crucial for video card cooling.
Pros: This is my first Lian-Li case and I loved it. Always wanted to try this brand but ended up getting other case due to price. - Great quality aluminum materials all around the case - Light weight - Power bottom and USB port located at top for easy access - Anti-vibration design - Large video card s...
Cons: - No top fan installation port - Only 3x 3.5 HDD and 1x 2.5 HDD slot
Good features and quality materials but lacks of care in assembly

Summary: Initially I thought my case was an open box item due to the many visible scratches on the inside and the pre-installed motherboard standoffs. Newegg told me the case was brand new so I suspect it is was the lack of care at their assembly plant. The exterior was flawless, so I did not RMA it.
Pros: -sleek, modern looking -extremely light for a mid-tower case due to rail-mount design -excellent build quality -rubber anti-vibration grommets for fans, power supply, side panels, and hard drives -ability to mount up to 5 fans -ability to change orientation of hard drive cage -quiet fans
Cons: -many scratches on inside of case -pre-installed standoffs and no tools included to remove them -small heatsink motherboard cut-out (had to remove my motherboard to install cooler back plate) -many sharp edges (partially shredded my Corsair flat cables) -lacks room behind motherboard tray to hide...
Summary: This is my second Lian-Li case and I am disappointed. I was very happy with my first Lian-Li case, it came without any problems. That's why I bought my second Lian-Li case. However, this second Lian-Li comes with two problem, I feel very very sad that I lose some confidence with Lian-Li.
Pros: High quality, with very good layout and design ( This is my second Lian-Li case)
Cons: 1. The front fan is not functioning 2. The screws for lock latch do not match, not way to lock.
