Another good looker from LL.
Aluminum LL is always good.
Innovative clamshell design for easy access.
Side panels finally slide on and use thumbscrews, unlike my PC-Q11B which uses eight tiny screws per side.
Big exhaust fan right behind where a tower CPU cooler would be.

CON
So right now it can take PSUs high enough wattage for dual graphics cards, but can only physically fit a single graphics card no longer than around 7". Really?
If front was vented, could have had a nice direct route through a tower heatsink. As is, air has to make some convoluted turns.

MEH
Could have gone SFX PSU since it is impossible to fit enough hardware into this chassis to need more than 450W.
I understand it is to fit the board horizontally (like a Prodigy or SG05) but the case is rather wide.
.

One reason to use ATX is because there are simply not a whole lot good SFX PSUs on the market right now. And if they are good they are pretty noisy...

But i agree there should be a bigger version that fits high end cards!

I like it, just wish it was a little longer for 10+ in graphics cards, but it's not really a case meant for that type of PC I suppose.

Actually, if you want something a little more capable: http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-v358/

Yup that seems to be their "bigger version", i don't really like the design as much on the v358 though...
