  1. Although there's no shortage of mammoth full tower desktop chassis, very few enclosures cater specifically to LAN-goers. Considering the stringent attributes and relatively niche market involved, that should come as…

    So, this is a "ruggedized" version of the PC-Q08. Similar dimensions (but a little taller), similar internal spacing, swaps out the 120mm fans up top for the handle. The Hard drive bay railing is different too, but probably still uses the same rubber grommets. I'd be willing to mess with it if I managed to get my hands on one for free/to review, otherwise I already have my PC-Q08. I'm VERY WELL practiced in working in this size of a case, and even the Thermaltake A30 is bigger on the inside than the PC-!08 and likely this case. =p

    You need to reviews things you can get yourself first. After you`ve eventually garnered the attention of enough people(consumers), you can ask companies for free samples to review based on the hopes that your reviews will bolster that product`s market and sales. Kinda like how a site such as Techspot ``for example`` :eek: operates. Basically, don`t indirectly (yet not at all subtly) ask for their stuff for free, especially when your only reason is to do stuff they`re already doing and have put in the time to get to that point.
  4. This is the internet... Your rational arguments have no place here.

    Thanks for an intelligent comment, somewhat a rare thing from a Guest user nowadays. XD At any rate, that was not my intention, but okay, please do believe what you like, as I'm sure the indirect (yet subtle) condescending tone helps you feel good about yourself. =)

    I am afraid you are reading too much into my comment as well. I really do love messing with ITX form factor cases for my own personal use, but there's no way I'd get another one like the PC-Q08 unless I did get it for free (okay, maybe I should use the word "gift" instead? =p) or my case failed/broke (unlikely due to Lian Li's generally incredible build quality). I like trying new things so I try not to get the same case twice for a new build.

    That being said, It'd be cool for Techspot to pair this case with one of the new ITX motherboards that are coming out (like that Zotac recently posted) and do a double review.

    A half height briefcase shaped and sized case would be awesome.
  7. Hey, it's the guest that made the initial attack. It was entertaining writing that for some reason, I don't know why.. You're right, I was reading too much into your comment and my entire argument was based on facts that were not supported by anything but whimsical speculations; I even thought that to myself when I was writing the bit. Anonymity has an interesting (well, not that interesting, really) effect on people. You have no idea if it really is me or if it's just another anonymous person impersonating me. Who am I? lol [*queue clip from Austin Powers: Goldmember* Scott: "You are causing me SERIOUS MENTAL TRAUMA!" Dr. Evil: "Ohh no,.. I don't know.. Who am I..?"] XD
