The aluminum surface looks great, of course, but it does encourage you to use thin cloth gloves during the installation process. Our sample had some annoying dust in it, so I decided to thoroughly clean it after taking my first few pictures.

Lian Li's PC-Q30 is truly unique, and I really appreciate yet another case from the company that doesn't follow mainstream convention, especially when it's well-executed like this one. You can love or hate the aesthetic, but you have to admit it's different, just like the chassis I reviewed in Take The Train: Lian Li PC-CK101, Built, Tested, And...Driven?

    Lian Li proving, again, that they're a little less sane than everyone else...

    I kinda like it, nice concept. There's too many boring PC cases!

    Doesn't quite do it for me. Good for them for trying something new, but it's not something I'd buy.

    I like it. Then again, everything is better than a laptop.
