Will Lian Li close down soon?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
Hello guys~~~

I find that Lian-li is not keeping with the times compare to Silverstone, Corsair and other brands.

The most innovative design is a05.. the rest are just hybrids.

They do not have casing with 200mm fans and their accessories are not that fantastic compare to Silverstone.

I have personally send them a few email on what I like even provided some drawings but they didn't even bother to reply my emails. (I draw them something similar to silverstone 09 before it even came out)

what are your opinion?

Closing down soon? How long have you been around the PC scene? Lian Li has been following its own designs and guidelines since they were born. Once in the time they were WAY ahead everyone, now most cases incorporate details and parts that they once pioneered in.

They aren't outdated. They have their own style, and anyone who appreciates it, will keep buying Lian Li cases.

And above all, they provide top notch (sometimes unmatched) build quality from their cheapest HTPC chassis to their most expensive EATX monster.

Quick detail: The case you own, the 05-FNB is easiest the midtower/mATX chassis they ever designed thermally wise.

They took the A05NB, which uses a front PSU design, reverse air tunnel, and inversed ATX board, put it back in the traditional array, and calling it a day. Thus making one of their cases with worse thermals.

I really want to buy a Lian Li case but their cases don't have any cable management solutions/grommets. frown.gif

that is why I feel they are not catching up with times =x thanks for proving me right.

I feel like my Corsair 650D (factory refurb from them for $100 shipped) is so much better than my K-62.

I doubt they will close down any time soon. With their near slave labor assembly system and massive selling price, their profit margins should be enough for them to be around for years to come.

It's a lot cheaper than it used to be, and certainly a lot cheaper than in other countries.

Taiwan Becomes More Competitive As Wages Go Down
Quote:
Since the 1990s manufacturing and other jobs have streamed out of Taiwan and into China. That’s depressed Taiwanese wages, leaving them unchanged in real terms for a decade.

One winner is Phison Electronics, a fabless flash storage device maker that has used its Taipei base to gain market share worldwide. Taiwan’s low wages for a developed country–an average of just $12,275 a year in the high-tech hardware sector–gives 12-year-old Phison an edge against rivals in South Korea, the U.S. and other developed countries.

Higher-than-usual unemployment among the country’s 10 million-strong workforce is probably also keeping a lid on wages. Taiwan reported a 4.4% unemployment rate for August, down from a high of 6.1% in August 2009 toward the end of the recession but higher than the 2.9% monthly average since 1978.

Good vid from tweak town showing the factory.
I cant see them closing down any time soon.
Not with the amount of money they charge.
