    I don't know if it is the fault of the pictures but they scream Ford Ka plastic interior.

    The Lian Li PC-7 Mk III pretty much remains the budget king.

    Lian-Li is €30 more expensive, that's a lot when you're on a budget
    Comment from Rutar @ 2007/02/16
    not for what you get, there aren't many things where you can play in the Mercedes league for 30 € more
