Now let's talk about the sweat shop some more please. I liked that discussion alot better, it was much less painful.
Majority of OCN members can't get that people don't think like them. It's a simple thing called preference. Honestly, I would pay the premium for a Lian Li case just due to the overall design. I love how simplistic yet functional their cases are.

I agree with you there completely.

The ATCS 840 is a very competitive case and whatever feature it lacks is most certainly made up for by it's price, so no it is most certainly not apples to oranges as Lian Li does not have it outclassed in every way... Sorry.
Yet in terms of looks, almost any Lian Li will win, that ATCS case is really ugly with that extended front bezel IMO, they should of used a door with holes on the side, ala Lian Li.

For me, it was more that he was stating false "facts" about Antec 1200's and HAF 932's being better in terms of build quality, etc, while they're build quality is beaten easily by Lian Li, it's still usable to an extent and beats Lian Li in the Cooling department easily.

Aesthetics is entirely subjective you even acknowledged that when you tacked on the "IMO"...

Man you are so gullible. Say that to all the people who purchase luxury products. When I purchased a Lian-Li I searched for other manufacturers Full Tower Aluminum cases before making a decision. I compared each one by design, feature, functionality and price. In the end, I purchased a Lian-Li because in the feature, function and price category it bested all other manufacturers Full Tower Aluminum cases. Why did I not compare Lian-Li against other Full Tower Steel cases? Shouldn't it be obvious by now? Because they're not in the same class!



Go ahead and hold me against my CM comparision but there's more than one manufacturer out there that makes Full Tower Aluminum cases. You can continue turning a blind eye against all other obvious comparisions to support your claim that Lian-Li is overpriced, but in the end, I know my money was well spent compared to other manufacturers Full Tower Aluminum Cases. Heck, Lian-Li is a steal compared to Zalman's Mid-Tower Aluminum cases priced at $400-$450 a pop. Maybe you should start bashing on people who purchase Zalman cases?

In the end, it's all about preference. Don't force other people to agree with what you like or what you think is good for them.
Why are you ignoring the fact that no matter what material is used they are all computer cases? aka apples to apples full size case to full size case. your aluminum does nothing for performance and apparently lian li thinks aluminum is gold so they charge an arm and a leg for a case made of it. If you can buy a steel full tower case that has the same or even superior cooling as to your lian li and cost less then HALF the price i really dont see what argument you have here.

Yes i understand its personal preference and people will buy what appeals to them but dont come in here and say your $400 lian li full tower case was worth every penny (or a STEAL LOL) when you could have purchased a $130-$150 steel full tower and accomplished your goal of a case which is house your hardware and keep it cool.

Your zalman attack is the same as your other failed comparison, have you ever seriously seen ANYONE buy ,recommend or run a zalman case here? i havent.

In the end Lian Li cases do not offer anything extra over their much cheaper competition to warrant the massive price premium IMO. there will be people that agree and disagree with that statement but in your wall of text posts you have yet to prove it wrong and keep dodging and finding excuses or competitors to compare to justify the price.

Eh? Please quote me saying that the antec 1200 and HAF are better in terms of build quality. better yet define build quality and how lian li's build quality helps it perform better.

Well, not those two, but you did mention the CM690 and the Stacker I think, my nets acting up and going slow at the moment so I can't really check.

Okay, Build Quality in that its going to work well no matter what you do with it, Lian Li's can be thrown down a steep hill and still be usable, whereas my CM couldn't survive a fall off a waist high bench.

True.. True, hence why I said IMO, but they look like they tried to rip off Lian Li (The Simplicity), but didn't want it to be obvious (adding the weird front panel thing)

Lol so in the event that you go hiking with your full size computer case you claim the lian li case will survive being thrown down a steep hill! I find this hilarious. Go test that out for me please, remember to video tape it for massive lolz.

So your saying I should acknowledge that a car made of steel is the same as a car made out of carbon fiber? According to your flawed logic, no matter what material is used a car is just a car?

If what you say is true please give everyone here a factual explaination on why companies like Thermaltake, NZXT, SILVERSTONE, Zalman (mid-towers) charge more for their FULL TOWER Aluminum cases than Lian-Li?

It's worth every penny to me, maybe not to you or someone else. Are you a Facist? It seems it's either your way or no way. It's like saying, "Why spend thousands of dollars on a Louis Vuitton bag when a plastic 'Thank you' bag does the same thing?"

LoL, it is obvious by now you have personal bias against Lian-Li the brand and the people who use it. End of discussion. Go celebrate with your steel case and leave us Aluminum case lovers alone. Can we get back on topic?

1. Carbon fiber for a car would greatly increase its acceleration due to much lighter weight, aluminum for a case however has zero impact on performance. FAIL! are you going to come up with a legit comparison?

2. Because they know they can fool a handful of people like yourself that will click the "sort by highest price" button and click buy.

3. LOL.

4. Hi.

5. I like the way Lian Li's cases look, very clean and professional looking. but yes i have something against their pricing, just like i wont run out and buy that new $90 zalman cooler when i can buy a $40 Xigmatek cooler that cools better for less then half the price.
