Lian Li PC-O5SX Review
I really like the design, and I have a lot of love for Li Li, but that is damned expensive!
Thank you for this review!
glad to see a desirable case.
pity I don't need a case right now, or I'd snap it straight up.
If you do need a new case, please do buy and find the extra money to buy the nice looking ones, or we'll be back with ugly after ugly again
What's the absolute longest Gpu you can fit in?
Wow!! what happened to the pricing of these?
According to the press release for these back in December the top of the range PC-07S was the one going to cost £280
The pound has dropped in value, but no where near enough to warrant a near 40% price increase.
How chuffing much is it now going to be?
Quite nice but had a look at the micro-ATX & ATX versions & they only have support for 1 expansion card, should have at least 2 for SLI/crossfire.
fantastic case, but taking the piss with the price
I agree. It's a beautiful case, but a lot of cash.
Sadly that is madness.
Sates price is borderline obscene then gives 16/20, is that a typo?
In an age where Fractal Design are releasing quality (build / aesthetics / materials) case for £70-80 where on earth have they pulled the price tag for this thing from?!
Same place Nvidia pulled a nearly £1k price tag for a single GPU from...a small and smelly place, but turns on some people with more money than brains.
For a design piece to go on display, I would much rather have the GamerStorm TriStellar from DeepCool.
Fractal make great cases but, to be honest, they're hardly inspiring to look at. Having said that, the price is horrific.
Yeah the In-Win 901 is better looking case ...and £120 cheaper.
Someone at Lan-Li didn't do their market research.
While it's a nice looking case, I'm with the masses on this one that the price seems completely out for that product.
If I'm going to be paying £280+ for a case then I'd rather take my money to Caselabs for something with some customisation.
Edit: I'd expect it to be providing something new that makes it stand out to warrant such a price hike, simply saying it's aluminium and glass isn't enough to add an extra £100+ premium.
That Value for Money score looks a little high I understand that it's a quality case, but is it really 16/20 for value for money at the thick end of £300?
£300 and no happy ending...
I don't get all this price gawking?
It's a high end case, most likely operating on low sales volumes, meaning you need larger margins to cover costs and make a worthwhile profit.
As for comparisons to Fractal, come on, really? You're comparing this glass and aluminium show piece to a steel and plastic black box?
It's a product, there are no requirements for the price to be low. If you don't want to pay that much, you just move on and go elsewhere, that's how a market works. What's the point in gawking about it? If the idea has merit, then presumably somebody else will come in and make the budget version that everybody seems to want.
Makes even less sense to start comparing it to a caselabs monstrosity. Those things are just big boxes with lots of options, they're not even that well made.
InWin is a good comparison. The 901 or 904. They have some glass. Much cheaper. I couldn't really advocate the design personally. It looks like a desktop case stood on some funny legs. Sounds awkward to use also.
