Lian-Li Launches Economic Line of Cases

The global economic climate still sucks - and just because we’re hearing less about it, that doesn’t mean people have more money than they did a few months ago. Lian-Li is trying to bring prices down a little without sacrificing too much of the construction quality or attention to detail that Lian-Li is known for.

Boasting a completely tool-less design, the case is composed of an aluminum outer shell with a steel structure inside and a black interior. There are four different models in the line. Pictured here is the PC-K62 which has three 140 mm fans (1000rpm), one 120 mm (1500rpm) and a transparent side window. The chassis stands at 210 × 460 x 490 mm. This case features a black interior.

The price of the basic model should be about 70 euros (around $100), while the model in photos is expected to cost about 120 euros (around $171).

    those cases look pretty sick, but much like the Antec 900 series case?
    Might also look like the 1200 series

    I got my antec 1200 for $160 deal on newegg. I'm sorry but will not pay $300 on a case and I don't care its handmade. Antec has a great quality and I love it

    mlcloudXD. But wait.. $170 is "economic?" When in the world was that decided? Still, a LYa, it is kind of foolish to consider $170 to be "economical" but by Lian-Li standards that is moving in the right direction.

    Thanks for your insightfull comment AncientNoob. It reafirms my sad belife that its impossible to have an intelligient and mature open forum on the internet. Even with hardware Tech sites such as Toms.

    I have been thinking about building my own case, but I cannot find where to buy the front I/O panels for USB and Audio. Any suggestions?

    I don't understand why any of you should spend more than $40 on a case..I buy my cases at the mall - they come with a 500-550 watt generic PSU that typically lasts 3-5 years and the case even has lights and good air flow, I pay $25-$35 anytime I need a new case for some reason. I'd never spend over $50 on a new case. That's just stupid. It's about what is inside the computer, your raw performance.

    30-50 is alright for a case with no power supply. If you are gonna trust your important files, programs, and hardware to a $10 power supply, well good luck , because that is what you are running on. It is nice to have a decent case, that is quiet and has good airflow. Dont get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the 25-35 dollar cases if you dont need dependability.

    But 100 and 170 being economical? for who? Lian-Li? I bet its helping their economy lol

So I agree with you. However, like three0duster pointed out, I was a littly fearfull of trusting my computer to a cheapo PSU, so I upgraded to a nicer one. It's funny though, because I then used the cheapo 500W to build my girl friend a computer :)
