Anyone found a re-seller for the red or gold one yet?

This case was just reviewed on Bittech:

Quote:
While it’s not on sale yet, the PC-888 is set to retail for in excess of $500 (ex. Tax) or £420 (inc. VAT). Frankly, that pricing is pretty insane even for an exclusive limited production product, and the fact that the PC-888 still has some pretty obvious flaws, especially with its very poor cable management and limited capacity for custom setups like watercooling loops, makes it a little harder to stomach.

The mediocre cooling performance only rubs salt into the wounds and there is no way that the PC-888 represents acceptable value for money. While we do appreciate the costs associated with doing a limited production run are high and have to be passed off somewhere, now is probably not the time to expect customers to pay through the nose for something that's fairly average in some respects.

But for those who’ve been hooked by the unique design and look of the PC-888, the crazy price won’t matter too much. For your ludicrously huge investment you’re getting a case that only a handful of other users around the world will ever have and in a world where individuality is so precious, for some that’s worth the price.

For all its faults and mental price tag though, the PC-888 does have some redeeming features. The blue anodised aluminium really is a wonderful thing and the whole case is very well put together and solid, a real return to what we expect from a Lian Li chassis after some recent disappointing offerings. There are also plenty of small touches to make you feel a little better about your massive purchase, with the colour co-ordinated hard drive handles, inbuilt card reader and excellent fan controller all working in the PC-888’s favour.

For those of us with our sanity intact though, it’s not enough. In fact, even if the PC-888 was the coolest and easiest case to use in the world it probably still wouldn’t be enough. Paying over £400 for a case is just nuts, even when you discount the fact that it’s outperformed and under featured in comparison to other premium cases like the awesome Cooler Master ATCS 840.

While we appreciate the exclusivity involved in its ownership there’s few or none of the benefits you’d expect from a high cost exclusive purchase. Stay in a five-star hotel and you’ll get five-star service. Buy a Lamborghini and you’ll get a super car arguably worthy of the price tag. Buy the PC-888 and you’ll get a decent chassis that, underneath the unique design and blue aluminium, is no better than a much more affordable case.
(instead of posting a new thread in hardware news, I'd rather just post it here)

I have one of these. I looked at it for over a year and when the last one I could find on the continent was left I bought it."NCIX from Canada. There were some left in Europe but I wasn't gonna pay that shipping!
It looks absolutely beautiful sitting on my desk! With that big window you can see all that Kick ass hardware. It had a steep learning curve and the wires have to be placed just so. But I've built a lot of gaming rigs so It was a challenge I took with pride. Expensive yes worth it? To me absolutely.

It's as individual as me. No boxes here just a vacuum cleaner Lolz I replaced all fans with 150 Deltas added lighting removed the hard drive cages for better airflow, lowered the front intakes to the bottom for better air across the gpu's .
Sometimes you just have to be you and ignore the nay sayers. Anyone who.s ever seen it especially in the evening has been awe struck but design & implementation of kick ass hardware

Good Luck

I had it too, for the price I paid, I was expecting a better experience.




Cable management was horrifying, but having one of the most unique cases of all time, it was worth it. I sold it to someone who is giving it a good home since I'll be leaving shortly and wont have any time to enjoy it.
