Zalman MS800 Plus

techPowerUp!
21 October 2013
  • Summary: When it comes to Zalman, many may remember their incredible aluminum cases geared toward the high-end gamer or HTPC user. Times change and so does the case market. The MS800 utilizes traditional materials, like steel and plastic, but still manages to impress.
  • Pros: Great price in Europe, Four fans included, Three hard-drive bays are hot-swappable, Six fans, single-channel controller, Well-rounded I/O, Rubber mat on top of the chassis, Support beam for GPU or to install internal cooling fan, 5.25" to 3.5" drive-bay parts included, Cooling fan on hard-drive c...
  • Cons: A bit more expensive in the US—especially the non-Plus version, No grommets on motherboard openings, Expansion-slot screws at the exterior of the rear, Only three 3.5" hard-drive bays

Zalman MS800 Plus Review

maximum pc
2 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Zalman’s MS800 Plus aspires to accomplish much for its super-inexpensive price of a cool $100. And on paper, it does. However, a case is more than just its spec sheet, and the MS800 Plus is a perfect example of a chassis that looks a bit flashier on the printed page than underneath your desk.
  • Pros: Built-in fan controller; hot-swap bays; screwless 5.25-inch device installation; cutout behind CPU cooler on motherboard tray; many fans.
  • Cons: Unnecessary VGA guide; tight cable routing; drive-bay fan could be bigger; screw-filled PCI brackets; weak aesthetic; confusing top panel.

Zalman MS800 Mid Tower Case Review

ThinkComputers
28 March 2013
  • Summary: Final Thoughts All in all Zalman has a good case on their hands with the MS800. It is pretty large and has a great look to it. Being that big not only means you have a lot of room inside to work with, but it also means you can install longer video cards and quite a lot of other hardware as well.
  • Pros: – Sleek design, – A lot of room inside, – VGA retention bar, – USB 3.0 support, – Can install a lot of optical drives
  • Cons: – Can only install 4 hard drives, – No true intake fan, – No enough cable ties included to tie everything down, – Cabling is going to take quite a while to do it correctly

  • Summary: Taking into account everything we just saw with the Zalman MS800, some things impressed me, while other things bother me a bit, but I understand why it was done the way it was. Starting off with the good I like the styling, the shiny plastic is a bit much for me, but I like the design and layout.

Zalman MS800 Case Review

Hardware Secrets
11 February 2013
  • Summary: The Zalman MS800 presents some very interesting features, such as the unique support bar for holding video cards and fans, and the single-channel analog fan controller. It misses a few features, most notably the absence of a front fan. We think its price tag is right for what is has to offer.

  • Summary: Vi skal nu have rundet vores test af Zalman MS800 kabinettet af. Vi har for ikke så lang tid siden kigget på det lille og spænende ZM-T2 kabinet som også kom fra Zalman. MS800 er et noget større kabinet med plads til high-end hardware og som har indbygget fan-controller.
  • Pros: Fint og lidt specielt design, OK byggekvalitet, Støtte til grafikkort og blæsermontering, God plads inde i kabinettet, Fin byggekvalitet, Indbygget fan-controller, Fair pris
  • Cons: Køleevnen kunne være bedre (CPU), Harddisk monteringen, Kun understøttelse af 3+1 harddiske

  • Conclusion: Skoro już obejrzeliśmy z każdej strony, jak Zalman MS800 PLUS wygląda, przymierzmy kilka elementów komputera, by przekonać się, jak wieszaczek-podpórka może się nam przydać. Jak widać na poniższym obrazku, nawet długaśny dwurdzeniowy Radeon mieści się się tam bez problemu.
  • Pros: - duża ilość miejsca w środku, - dobre warunki przewietrzania, - wbudowany regulator prędkości pracy wentylatorów, - możliwość montażu bardzo długich kart graficznych, - gniazda USB 3.0, - świetne rozwiązanie z szyną do podpierania kart graficznych i "wieszania" wentylatorów, - spora liczba kanał...
  • Cons: - nieprecyzyjne spasowanie bocznych pokryw (tendencje do delikatnego brzęczenia), - błyszczące powierzchnie części plastików, podatne na odciski palców

  • Conclusion: O Zalman MS800 oferece alguns recursos bem interessantes, como a barra de suporte para segurar placas de vídeo e ventoinhas e o controlador analógico para ventoinhas. No entanto, faltam alguns recursos, como é o caso de uma ventoinha frontal.

  • Excerpt: Все новое — это хорошо забытое старое. История ходит кругами, и компьютерная индустрия не является исключением из этой закономерности. Несмотря на стремительное изменение требований к корпусам для ПК, иногда бывает полезно заглянуть на пару лет назад и почерпнуть там вдохновение.
