Simplicity at its best: Lancool PC-K62 Casing Review
We managed to get hold of this pretty interesting casing. On first look, it does resemble some of the common cases, windowed side panel, vents in the front, and a rectangular build. However after trying it out, we’d say that it has more to offer than cases in its category.
Now, some of you might still be thinking what’s so interesting with some relatively unheard-of case company when compared to the big names like Antec, CoolerMaster, and Lian-Li? Well, Lancool is actually affliated to Lian-Li, but they have taken much effort to draw the line clearly between the two brands.
Lian-Li as everyone knows, makes premium quality aluminium cases for enthusiasts, but these cases do not come cheap compared to the steel cases of CoolerMaster. Lancool plugs this void, and now you have Lian-Li innovation and quality at a lower cost with their line of steel (gaming) cases.
Here we have in our lab today is the PC-K62, one of the highest-end products from Lancool. Let’s take a look at the specification list before we check out the casing proper.
