Lian Li's Looks-Like-a-Spider Case Goes on Sale

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 28 comments

At CeBit earlier this year, everyone was talking about the Lian Li's Spider case. With everything raised up and easily accessible, the cheesy promotional video was easily forgiven (though not forgotten, see below).

Lian Li’s T1 mini-ITX Spider Test Bench supports mini-ITX motherboards, one 5.25-inch slim CD-ROM, one bog standard 3.5-inch HDD or SSD using an adapter and a standard ATX PS/2 PSU.

The gaudy red you see isn't your only option, also available are silver or – if you're really going for the whole spider theme – black versions. The angles of the four legs are adjustable and it stands at 272mm tall.

Hitting stores at the end of May, the case in black or silver will set you back $108 plus taxes. If you're going for racy red be prepared to pay $123 plus tax.

Extremely cheesy and slightly annoying ad for the case is embedded below:

    The add is enough to make me NOT want to buy it.

    And who does series benching on a mini-itx board?

    This thing is too ugly. Lian Li makes some weird stuff. I remember getting the fish tank panel from them years back. This is taking it too far. It looks cheap and almost agricultural. Antec did a better job with their Skeleton. This thing is too ugly.

    I imagine to keep you from possibly putting anything 'in' the case that could need real cooling.

    I could have sworn this was already on the market and it was just that no one cared.

    I'd have to agree, it looks as though Lian-Li put the most minimal effort possible into producing this dubious case. What exactly is the market for this? Someone who wants to put their htpc in an ugly erector set thingy?
    Bravo

    Lian Li makes good quality cases, used them for my last 3 builds. The windowless all aluminium black mid tower design is my choice. Most all of them are getting full 5 eggs at newegg.com

    Actually I was surprised to this come from Lian Li as they usually stick with basic but quality designs.

    It would be a great computer for a child 5-12+ something different that looks cool. They would just need to keep there hands off ;)

    Overpriced, like the rest of their cases.
