Landmark's Quality PC Cases
We currently offer computers in several form factors, including mid- and full towers, desktop (horizontal) cases, micro-ATX (smaller) cases, media center cases, and cubes.
The Classic Mid-Tower
By far the most popular unit is the so-called mid-tower case. It sits alongside or under the desk, has room for expansion (additional drives and boards), and features a positive airflow for controlled cooling of today's hot-running processor chips. Although their eye-popping factor is minimal, our mid-towers are attractively styled.
We always prefer beige-colored cases because replacement and add-in components are easier to find, but can build black systems on demand. The Little Black Box shown above, for example, features silver trim, a silver DVD drive, and a calming blue glow from its quality cooling fan.
The Desktop System
Desktop PCs have fallen out of favor over the years, but they still have their enthusiasts. If space is cramped, then the desktop case is for you. It elevates your monitor to eye level. Featuring excellent airflow, ultra-quiet cooling fans, and ease of access to the drives, the Landmark desktop system lends a retro look to your workspace. The gizmo with the handle is a hard disk backup tray.
Full Towers: Our Biggest and Best
Need something larger than a mid-tower? Either Big Box or Silverbox is suitable for use as a server chassis or as a solid platform for your next personal computer. Users ordering these cases are those who want maximum airflow for their processor and components, room to work inside, and maximum expandability.
Surprisingly, these cases cost only about $20 more than our basic, very capable cases. Of course, if you're loading these up with components you'll want a heavy-duty power supply, and that can add another $25-50. But it's worth it, in our estimation, to build on a solid foundation.
You'll find a technical review of the Big Box tower here, and a similar review of the Silverbox case here. Don't get too hung up over the specifics of the reviews; we don't offer a choice of CX or LX models, for example, though we can furnish Big Box in either beige or black. The beige model comes with an optional left-side window (when available). And we reserve the right to put in the power supply of our choice.
More cases: Whatever you want!
These are not the only PC cases we offer. Here's a limited edition, for example, that commemorates the 20th anniversary of the manufacturer. (Who cares, right? But it's pretty.) Want it? It's available -- while it lasts -- as a $275 option in white, black, or silver. Don't snicker . . . it's a very well engineered design.
We'll display more cases here as time permits. They're constantly changing and evolving.
Please note that specific case designs are subject to availability.
