I think the side panel is absolutely hideous. Just like the last Armorsuit. Very un-Lian-Li IMO. Rest looks alright though.

I really like it, even the side panel. I'm really digging the interior design and colour. Looks like it would be a dream to build a system in. I'll consider buying it for my next build.

I'd prolly go to frozencpu or somewhere in the states that sells just lian-li side pannels and get one of the generic ones that would fit..... because the amd designed case is awesome

The side panel is pretty tacky, but otherwise looks pretty solid. Actually, the first thing that came to mind when I saw the picture was "Antec 1200".

Beautiful, but its a lot like Antec Cases, and I'm pretty sure Antec started this style, everyone else started copying it :P Anyway I never buy Lian Li, and probably never will, reason is because they are priced so extremely high

Cooler Master started cases like this years before Antec. The orginal Stacker came nearly 5 years ago.

Oh Noes they stole my idea!
I was going to paint my antec 900 in a black/red combination, black being dominant.
How could they.....

It does look good, but most people won't like the price tags
