A lot of people with computers worth even up to 3000-4000$ don't want to invest in valuable PC case.
Then their PC case is not in same class as their hardware, maybe they not bother with that, maybe they don't understand that...
But material for all high end PC cases should be aluminum. Steel produced for toys and cheaper products for house is not premium material for PC cases.
Situation is even worse when you know how much cost real Lian Li in USA.
I saw PC-O9, PC-O8, PC-O12 for 190-200$, their price is double in Euro in Europe.
PC-O12 costed 170$ on Newegg discount last 7 days. PC-V3000 cost 299$. Case is 450$ in Europe.
I don't understand that.
I notice that aluminum Lian Li cases are much more asked in Italy, Germany, France, UK then in USA,
and price in Europe is always same, maybe small discounts.
I understand that guy who buy Ryzen and 5700 XT and invest 1500-1600$ in PC no 300-350$ for case.
But someone who buy i9 with 10-12 cores, motherboard worth 500$... etc look weird if case worth 140$.
Because aluminum is material he deserve and his hardware.
Aluminum is used for many many things and we deserve PC cases from him because inside is not products worth 500$ to someone buy material for 15$ and build case from that. Case is first what you see and case should be nice and to nicely present hardware inside.
Aluminum cases are overpriced, but everything in PC industry is overpriced.
I saw and other aluminum cases, but Lian Li production process and building their cases is best in this industry.
They used to work with aluminum and specialized in that and it's not same when you buy their cases and some other when decide to build case with 3 times higher price because it's aluminum and continue to produce steel cases.
