The PC-A04 is 188 (W) x 386 (H) x 460mm (D) - going by the Lian Li website this includes the case feet (this could be wrong though).
The R2/R3 is 455mm high with feet so the Lian Li is significantly smaller.
Edit: £86.99 @ SpecialTech and £76.98 @ OCUK.

Any who really needs that many HDD bays?

TAG: The Define MIni is actually of thicker steel than R3, and the top panel will not be perceived as flimsy.

Iron reacts with the oxygen of the air and forms oxides of iron or rust. It happens readily but you do not see it readily with naked eyes. It takes some time for the rust to be thick enough. (like the brown formation we know of as rust) Rust formation slows down because the initial layer prevents the oxygen and iron from getting in contact and reacting. With a good painted case (and most of them are galvanized) however it would take several years before any signs of 'rust' would be noticeable and even ages before your case collapses because of rust, unless you have your case outside in the monsoon 24/7 (I would worry about the hardware inside it more) the case would be fine.
