Lian Li has been coming out with quite a few cases aimed at the small form factor crowd over the past couple of years and they all are feature packed and quality made. The PC-TU200 is no exception, it has a ton of features and of course is made to last. Like most all Lian Li cases the PC-TU200 is made completely of Aluminum and has that nice finish we are used to seeing on Lian Li cases. It comes in both black and silver flavors. I really like the side panels on this case. They are tool-less and work extremely well. It will be interesting to see if Lian Li will use this system on other cases.
You can sure fit a lot inside of this case as well. You have room for four 3.5-inch hard drives or two 2.5-inch hard drives as well as a single optical drive. Another plus is the case supports normal ATX power supplies up to 140mm and expansion cards up to 310mm! That means you could actually fit a video card in there! The only thing that is really limited in the CPU area, you can only have a CPU cooler that is 30mm high, so that is something you are going to have to consider when purchasing this case.
Other great features of this case are the front USB 3.0 and eSATA connections, large 140mm intake fan and carrying handle. The carrying handle makes it easy to take the system with you to LAN parties and other events.
When it comes down to it the Lian Li PC-TU200 is a small form factor case done right! Overall ThinkComputers gives the Lian Li PC-TU200 case a 9 out of 10 score.
- Lots of room inside for storage
- Cool side panel release system
- All aluminum
- USB 3.0 and eSATA
- Carrying handle
- Not a lot of room for a CPU cooler
