Over the past few years we have seen quite a lot of evolution in the case designs that Lian Li offer. With every release it seemed like they were aiming to solve a problem with case design, or enhance other areas as much as possible.

The PC-TU200 is a compact case which is designed to offer maximum flexibility, performance, ruggedness and portability.

Bundled with the case we get a detailed manual, and all the screws/items required to build a system in the chassis. There is also a speaker for those motherboards which do not have one built on and a USB conversion wire is present too.
