We received the black version (available in
silver) of PC-TU200 and immediately liked the overall design because of its
simplicity. Front side only has one external drive bay, which has a lid with
spring operated with a push button for optical drive located on the power
button and reset button. Below is a attraction net for a 140mm fan for blowing
air into the removable frame of the chassis. Along the bottom of the case is an
eSATA port, 2 USB 3.0 and audio jack.
In addition to slots for behind I/O board,
the source, and two expansion card slots, the rear panel is almost a large
grill. The entire aluminum body seems extremely sturdy. Above panel provides
sure handle, and the bottom has four built-in metal legs and a dust barrier
screen for removable grill fit the graphics card fan. The two levers at the
rear open left and right panel when pressed.
Mini-ITX chassis is clearly aimed at the
smaller configuration, so we are satisfied with the 5.25-inch drive bay of
PC-TU200 only. We wish that the case is longer than 1 to 2 inches to fit a
wider number of PSU. According to Lian Li, the length of the maximum power that
PC-TU200 support is 5.5 inches. You are advised to use the PSU shorter module.
That is, PC-TU200 can support two graphics card slots 8.11-inch in maximum
Driver frame uses 4 latches near the top of
it to put on the rails and use the pink cochlea to mount the bottom. A
backplane for 4 3.5-inch drives makes it easy to swap, although 2 attachment
points in this framework do not allow the drive to reach the ports of the
backplane and requires different way of cable. However, for those want a mobile
Mini-ITX, PC-TU200 is one of the best choices and the most convenient we've
seen so far.
