Lian Li Mini-Q Series of PC Cases Welcomes PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F

Taking a break from the enthusiast and gaming markets, Lian Li has gone back to its Mini Q series of enclosures and has brought forth two new models aimed at HTPCs, namely the aluminum-wrought PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F.

With PCs coming in all shapes and sizes, enclosure makers always have to make sure that their product lines include all types of chassis.

Needless to say, high-end gaming and enthusiast-grade models often get the most media coverage and end up as the most expensive and intricate.

On the other side of the spectrum, or very nearly, lie the small form factor enclosures, designed to house mini-ITX motherboards.

It is this type of chassis that is used in the creation of HTPCs, and Lian Li has just brought out its two most recent models, the PC-Q09 and PC-Q09F.

The PC-Q09 measures 265 (W) x 110 (H) x 200 (D) mm and is constructed out of aluminum, the same as the PC-Q09F, only the latter has a different size, of 265 (W) x 124 (H) x 200 (D) mm to be exact.

They both are designed with a 2.5-inch bay meant to house either a hard disk drive or a solid state drive.

In addition, there is a single 5.25-inch optical disk drive bay, as well as a front I/O panel with audio ports and, more importantly, USB 3.0 connectivity.

What’s more, the PC-Q09 features and external 110W AC power adapter, whereas the PC-Q09F boasts a 150W model.

As for pricing and availability, the PC-Q09 will start selling next month, for $179 and in two color options, silver and black to be precise, whereas the PC-Q09F will show up in silver/black, red and white, each costing $129, $159 and $189, respectively.
