  1. Lian Li has updated its Tyr PC-X500 premium-grade chassis to include various features that reviewers and fans requested when the product launched back in 2008. Answering criticism, the company has…

    Ouch....$499?? Can't imagine they'll sell a lot of these when there are a number of highly rated cases (both mid and full-tower size) that are 1/3 - 1/2 of that cost available.

    I must agree... way too expensive for nothing new at all in a mid tower.

    Never used an Lian Li...but I think if I was willing to spend that much dough on a case, I would get something like Antec.

    Anyone used Lian Li before?

    That is a tad on the pricey side, the design isn't really that great considering you can get a prettier Antec or cooler master for half the price and same specs?

    Lian-li has unmatched quality and manufacturing in my opinion, but I agree. That is way too expensive. I have 3 Lian-li cases, but when I built my new gaming machine this year, I opted for a Silverstone Fortress II. Still quite as expensive, but as someone mentioned, its a fraction of the price of this beast.

    And, in a HAF chassis which I love :D
     
  10. Lian Li stuff is WAY overpriced. They make nice towers, but for the cost you can just get a regular tower (which is fine) for like 60-100 dollars and spend the extra 400 bux on components.

    I'll happily stick with my Xigmatek Midgard-W tower, thank you very much.
     
  11. I've owned 5 Lian Li cases. Solid built cases. Price was always a major sticking point for most. I kept my eyes open and soon deals would be forthcoming and I'd buy one. The most expensive one I've owned is the last one, the all red, AMD gamer case. Great case, but I can tell that Lian Li has started using thinner aluminum to keep costs in line. As much as I love Lian Li, no way would I spend $500 for a case. One other opinion: If it comes down to Lian Li versus Antec, go Lian Li for the win.

    That's way too much money for a case. I could probably justify spending that amount on a high-end X58 motherboard if I wanted to go the Tri-SLI or Quad Crossfire route but definitely not on the case alone. Currently using Gigabyte Sumo tower and an older Thermaltake Xaser III super tower, no problems with either one.
