Summary: Final Thoughts
The PC-Q06 is one cool little test box. No one can argue at the sleek style and quality of the PC-Q06. We’ve come to expect this from Lian-Li. The case is designed to give you easy access to your motherboard, memory and video card and it does just that. When you are constantly switching out parts it is nice to have easy-access to switch out parts.
Pros: Sleek style, Quality design, Perfect for MiniITX motherboards
Cons: No easy access to power supply, optical drive or hard drive, You need to remove 6 screws to take the side panel off, Opening on the back is not large enough for all cables
Summary: And for those that have no need for benching mITX motherboards you will be happy to know that Lian Li also makes an attachment motherboard tray allowing for the fitment of an ATX motherboard. This is an optional piece of course and we will report back as soon as we find a retailer selling them, as we will definitely be picking one up.
Conclusion: A test bench needs to be well-constructed and sturdy enough to withstand constant hardware replacement. It should also allow easy access to its inside components, or it defeats the purpose of having an open air test bench. While the Lian Li PC-Q06 has excellent build quality and pleasing aesthetics, it fails in a few crucial areas that would otherwise make it a great test bench.
Summary: Die PC-Q06 Test Bench von Lian Li hinterlässt einen sehr gemischten Eindruck. Positiv ist, wie man es von Lian Li gewohnt ist, das sehr schlichte und edel wirkende Design sowie die Qualität des Materials und die Verarbeitung. Die Thumb Screws für die Steckkarten und das Mainboard sind für das häufige Wechseln der Komponenten sehr praktisch und auch der Staubfilter für das Netzteil und die USB 3.0 Anschlüsse in der Front fallen positiv auf.
