Conclusion of the Lian Li LANCOOL II Review
Lian Li has already caused a sensation with the LANCOOL One and has done many things right. Nevertheless, there were still isolated points in the first version which needed improvement. With the second version the manufacturer has now put a shovel on it. By renouncing aluminium accents, more money could be invested in other areas. The LANCOOL II is high-quality processed and offers a lot of features. It not only has an attractive front panel with RGB lighting and glass side panels on both sides, this midi tower also offers a lot of space, a modular fan frame, practical flaps for the power supply tunnel, cable covers on the back and three pre-installed case fans.
Only the volume of the unregulated fans and a non-existent decoupling for 3.5″ hard disks are to be criticized. Moreover, the empty opening for the optional USB 3.1 type C port in the I/O panel disturbs the visual appearance a bit. However, since Lian Li most likely didn’t want to exceed the magic 100 euro limit, a standard USB type-C port was no longer feasible in terms of price. If we finally consider the advantages and disadvantages and include the purchase price of 89.90 €, the Lian Li LANCOOL II can definitely convince us and gets a clear recommendation to buy.
