ONLINE STORE PROFILE
Big008.com has been a well known online retailer of quality computer components for at least a couple of years now. One defined characteristic of this online company is it's selection of Lian-li cases (Even the hard to find ones). I had a glance at their profile and record on resellerratings.com , and was really impressed at their record and you can have a peek for yourself HERE . If you are in the market for a computer case, especially a Lian-li, make this one of your first stops, the service and selection is great!
The newest craze, the aluminum PC case, has swept the computer market like a storm. Everyone is praising the quality, the lightness and the lovely finish these cases have brought to the lucky purchaser's workstation. Shining in the forefront is the king and overall leader of this niche market, the Lian-Li. I myself have kept tabs on all the latest models and am amazed as to how many models, sizes and colours comprise the Lian-Li aluminum case lineup. Big008.com was kind enough to donate a sample of the Lian-Li PC-86 to introduce me to the premiere line of aluminum computer cases and to expose a model that hasn't got allot of attention on the net.
