It's an awesome case, I'm getting the same thing but with a window. With windows they run around $270 .

And here's the Lian-Li page on it:

I have the P180, so here are my thoughts: Its a nice case, but it has some problems: First off, there is WAY to much plastic in this case for my likeing. The top of the case is plastic, the side pannels are plastic with aluminium plateing, the front door is plastic. Also, if you want a case with a lock, dont get this case. It has a lock, but because the door is plastic, the lock does not do anything, really (if someone wanted to get in, they could still get the door off with out much trouble).

I have the Antec P180...and it's pretty nice but I think the design could use some work, as cable management is really hard.

Also, I agree with SoaDMTGguy completely about the lock, it's pretty much useless.

I personally like cooler master cases. There's the Praetorian, the Wave Master, the Centurion... Not sure if the first two have a lockable door, but the last does not. Also, there's always the Chieftec Dragon. I would suggest those or a Lian-Li or Antec.

I've always liked Thermaltake Cases. The Xaser Armor is a great full-tower, but I would reccomend spending the extra $20-$30 for the aluminum, it weighs half as much.
