The ABS Tigas has a price tag of $499 plus shipping; this officially makes it the single most expensive case ever reviewed at Legit Reviews. Is it worth the price tag? Well that decision is yours and yours alone; budgets may vary. Now, is the Tigas a very well built, classy looking case that has the features that any enthusiast would want in a case for storage, interior space, and the almighty quiet factor? Oh yeah.

!!
Its a LIAN LI PC-77A the only difference is the disk bay system. The whole design is more than 2 years old.

Not only isn't cheap, but is a COPY of another product (probably licenced). I bought my lian li for about 240€ an year ago.

You can check the pictures in lian-li's site:

It looks like he's right. Still a nice case however and even though I'm a huge Lian-li fan, I'd buy whichever was cheaper.
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 @ 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R
2x1gb G.Skill DDR2-800 4-4-3-5
eVGA 8800GT SC with Akimbo cooling Kit
WinXP Pro
Dell 2405fpw @1920x1200

All wrapped up in a Lian-Li PC-G70a

Similar yes, same no.

The backplane, the mobo tray, fully anodize, the front fans, the front drive bay access door, selective hard drive start up, the sound deadening material on the doors, the way the doors attach, the rear cage trays. are all different.

It could vary well be made by Lain Li for ABS, but its similar, not the same.

Don't get me started on whats a clone/based of what, only so many ways you can put stuff in a case.
