Zalman HD160 HTPC Case

Metku Mods
14 August 2006
  • Conclusion: I don't actually have anything bad to say about this case but I have to mention the lack of instructions. The looks are outstanding and internal design is as good as it gets, fans are silent and HDDs have vibration insulation. I can really recommend this case to everyone about to buy a HTPC case. As the remote and the display is clearly ment to be used with MCE, it would have been interesting to see how they work with it.
  • Pros: Looks, Silent fans, Card reader
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: The Zalman HP160 is a reasonably successful first try at a quiet, high performance HTPC case. The styling is quite nice, as is the basic build quality. The provided remote system works fine with Windows XP Pro, and it is MCE (Windows Media Center Edition) compatible. The volume control on the front panel was not tested; it works in MCE.

  • Summary: Today we would like to introduce to you a new HT PC case from Zalman. The case can be stuffed with quite an advanced configuration which could not only play media files, but also cope with the latest gaming titles which look much prettier on a big screen than on an ordinary PC monitor. Find out more about this new exciting solution from our detailed review.

  • Summary: With the HD160 Zalman is expanding their product range, this HTPC enclosure is of high quality and aims to deliver a good balance between cooling and noise generation; it has support for full size ATX motherboards, and comes with a VFD display and Windows Media Center remote control.

  • Conclusion: Even though it seems the case should be warmer due to the lower speed don fans etc the case actually performs better with Zalmans own cooler compared to stock coolers. I have on both the GPU and CPU a couple of degrees lower temperatures compared to stock but still they are alot quieter.

Zalman HD160 HTPC Case

DarkVision Hardware
21 February 2006
  • Excerpt: I recently had a chance to review Zalman's Home Theatre PC Enclosure HD160. It motivated me to go ahead and turn my own personal PC into a "Media Cener" PC. The entire chassis is 100% brushed aluminum and it sits horizontally which allows it to blend right into the rest of your home theatre equipment, and gives the system a very luxurious look. It comes complete with a volume control knob and a card reader panel right on the front of the case.

  • Excerpt: In typical Zalman fashion, the HD160 HTPC case comes to the market with impressive design elements, a rich feature set, outstanding materials and build quality, and the best cooling performance I've seen in this type of chassis. More importantly for a niche product like this, the HD160 can do its job in virtual silence.

给经典一个定义 Zalman HD160 Plus测试

ocer.net
15 January 2008
  • Conclusion: 我们测试了Zalman HD160 Plus的遥控功能,用户可以使用附带的遥控器在4-5米范围内进行开关机及点播功能,遥控器上的功能非常多,用户可能用到的一应俱全,并且按键是可以编程的。 真正强的是远程控制配套软件,用户可以设置常用软件的快捷按键,例如我们这次播放高清使用的PowerDVD,不过测试中我们发现这个控制程序与个别软件的一些功能不兼容,例如WINAMP,或许是因为版本和插件的问题。 LCD面板显示功能特别强,用户可以自行设置字体类型、大小、风格和屏幕亮度,在播放视频或者音乐的时候,这个LCD上会出现几乎所有相关的信息。...

  • Excerpt: Zalman er en forholds vis godt kendt producent, som blandt andet producere: CPU kølere, grafikkkorts kølere, passive køle produkter, PSU'er og meget mere. De har før lavet kabinetter men det har mere været rettet mod passiv køling. De er nu på markedet med et HTPC kabinet. Og ud fra billede på pakken, så er der tale om et særdeles pænt et af slagsen.
