    The build quality is much higher. And is is a better looking case. At least I think so.

    yea a lot of these cases you really can't appreciate the quality of material and build until you see them in person. lian li cases are far greater quality then most cases

    the Antec SX 830 SOHO was built like a tank, served 3 builds of mine, its too narrow to fit larger coolers today.

    Not convinced it is worth the difference in cash. Convince me.

    I've modded both of those cases several times so I know them well. The Lian Li Armoursuit PC P80 is probably a little over priced, but the fit and finish and engineering and design are the height of what you can expect from Lian Li. If you like ALL aluminum cases (no funky plastic trim bits) and you like Lian Li styling it's a no brainer. The A1200 is a great case with much potential for modders and even bone stock is a very well thought out and built box. It's also very heavy and it's got plastic trim. If you are a modder and think about how to change color on cases plastic trim negates the ability to powder coat everything. It's a great case for the money. But certainly not "the best" full tower on the market. It's been eclipsed by Corsair's 800D IMO.
    kciaccio and erocker say thanks.

    I'm going to quote my own post to spread more love around, since I CD unintentionally goaded me. Man, if I'm ever real flush I'm kicking my 700D to the curb for one of these bad mambojambas.
