Lian Li had a very strong showing at the Sands, including showing the limited edition PC-888 chassis. There will be fewer than 100 units made, each going for approximately $600. These chasses are virtually hand-made because of the intricate metalwork required to build the steps and shape the panels.
The PC-P80 Spider case was last year’s CES model, but it’s still available for $600 on NewEgg. The unique expansion bay locking system has been brought to a few other cases, as well.
The PC-P50 Dragon will sell for $200 and features a laser etched dragon brooding over the case’s window.
The PC-B70 and PC-B71 are very similar, except that the B71 has a toolless hard drive cage with a SATA hotswap plate. Check out the video below for an external shot of the case. Both have insulated side panels to keep the heat down and excellent cooling throughout.
The PC-Q7 is a new ITX case which will retail for less than $40, perhaps the cheapest Lian Li case ever. The XB-01b is similarly priced, but is meant for a new home for an XBox 360.
The C38 and C39 are new HTPC cases, both featuring remotes, but only the latter featuring an included PSU.
Lian Li also introduced a series of NASes, one two bay and one three bay.
