The name Lian-Li is synonymous with quality; their years of award winning case design, attention to detail and the sought after aluminum construction are what have made this company's chassis' so desirable. The Armorsuit PC-P50 takes this formula and delivers an professional looking mid-tower that employs superb craftsmanship and elegant aesthetics into one simple package.

The case offers its unique, completely tool-less design that makes the installation process very smooth. Lian Li have also added cable management spacing in most of the right areas to allow for clean internals that won't inhibit airflow and have eliminated all the sharp edges which is a common complaint with the thin material of an aluminum case.

Temperatures are kept in check by two 140mm exhaust fans, along with the usual 120mm intake and exhaust units and they have added dust filters over the front panel for easy cleaning.

The only downside to the case is that Lian-Li reverted back to a front-to-back mounted hard drive system. In a smaller case this means that the drive cage needs to be pulled out of the front and really puts a wrench in the quick and smooth installation process which is bound to cause a bit of hassle when adding hard drives later on. We would have also liked to see more than just three hard drives.

Ultimately the case rings in at around $200, which isn't unreasonable for an aluminum mid-tower but it isn't cheap either. Lian-Li offers a one of a kind design with a second to none aluminum construction and an attention to detail that is rarely exhibited in the chassis market.
