    Nice review.
    Good job to Lian Li being innovative.

    Wow this is actually very neat, however this is something I would probably build for myself if I ever had a case this insane!

    Did you read the conclusion?

    Show me one other company which is willing to create such a product. Sure, it is no test bench, sure it may not be cheap, but it is truly unique. And that is what will sell it. Sure, not in big volume, but for those who want just what the T1 delivers, a spider as an ITX chassis. For those, no other product out there compares or will do.

    That deserves something, right?

    Wow. Just wow. And 150 Euros? I feared, as its a Lian Li special case, it would cost an arm, a leg and one of your testies to get one.

    In fact I find that so cool, I'm going to buy one. When, and if, its available here. As a HTPC for the new flat. Oh yeah.

    show me one practical use for it other then epeen? Look i love Lian Li and im all for "open encloses" but this product is just stupid and expensive. Its not even a chassis, its two metal plates with legs. Best part about it is if your a little intoxicated one night and you bump into your desk its sitting on you better be ready to buy a new rig when this thing goes crashing overboard lol.

    Kudos for the unique design, it goes for a separate niche market and as such we cant really judge it like other cases.

    Its like art or special production runs of super cars expensive but in a separate market.

    Decent all it needs is reinforced legs.

    I have to disagree with that argument. If you want I can ship you a box of my poo and call this the Poop 1 ITX case (P1). It will be truly unique. I won't make many (can't poop THAT much), I'll just make them for those who want what my P1 delivers, a pile of poop as ITX chassis. For those, no other product out there compares or will do. (Until some elephant steals my idea).
    Feel free to replace my poop 1 idea with tree 1, pool cleaner 1 (yes, an ITX case in the shape of a pool cleaner) or basically just open up a dictionary and pick any noun.

    I can't imagine it being very practical, you buy a mini ITX board for its small size, this basically breaks that. It's a gadget, I fail to see it as anything else.

    Nice review Darksaber.

    Interesting and original product but to be honest, not very practical for me. My cat would either attack or hump it... :twitch:

    Aye whilst I have to say I love the case myself ( wouldn't buy the damn thing but would run away with a display or something) You should rate the cases in the same way as the other reviews.

    Should be based on a number of things just not one thing

    Aesthetics
    Usability
    Price
    Features

    : ]

    Still I liked the review as well just the scoring system is confusing if you suddenly rate a case like this high just for the uniqueness of it.

    Thats like giving a Lambo Gallardo a 1/10 because its hopelessly impractical and basicaly only good for driving in a straight line at fast speed which you can't because then you either total it or loose your license.

    This Spider case plays ina different league of cases. You can not compare it to standard boxes as much as you can't compare a Gallardo to a Corsa.

    Thats why I find the score justified, altho I would've given it slightly less but then again I haven't seen it in person.

    Silly comparison in my opinion, firstly this is a box, just a box it has no components, it uses aluminium which is actually a very cheap metal, Lian Li are massively over rated in my opinion anyway, sure they're cases are made nicely, but not that much better then other cases.

    It is no in a different league in anyway shape or form it just has a cool shape.

    Simple as that :laugh:

    Well thats my point, really. You can't compare something designed to be practical to something that is designed purely to look good.
    Subaru Forester - A jeep solely designed to drive around in a forest and not get stuck.
    Any supercar - Designed to turn heads and look good in your driveway.

    You'd never compare those two directly. But both are cars, aren't they.

    Ah well anyway, I have my opinion, and you have yours :p

    And maybe because I'm rather tired my arguments make more sense in my head than they do in reality.
