Pros: Purchased Z11 for an AMD FX8150 ESXi build. Great value for the money given the amount of included fans; Have multiple SATA drives (No RAID) for VM's
Cons: Case design awkward; HD installation required tools; No internal USB 3.0 headers requiring front panel USB cables to be routed through expansion card cover slot and connected to motherboard; Front panel difficult to remove and required to connect cables for power/reset buttons and LEDs; Rebates denied due to no proof of purchase which was sent and scanned by Rebate center in provided link to original documentation (No QA); Email address provided email@example.com....
Summary: Zalman makes great products, just do not expect support if something breaks. I wish I could purchase from Cool Master or Corsair instead but Zalman has the best value. Poverty has consigned me to be a Zalman customer forever! Try not to be like me. If you are financially able, buy from a different company.
Pros: The pros I am experiencing are detailed in other reviews. 2 things I have to add though: 1. Beautiful Case Like most cases, the pictures you see do not do them justice. The Zalman Z9+ is no different. I bought this case expecting a step up from the cardboard box I had been using. It is more like ten. I was not ready for the size and gracefulness of it. Even the video on the product description page does not give a good representation of how this case looks. Pulling it...
Cons: The case itself is very satisfying. The company that makes it however, treats customers horribly. I am a loyal customer that has purchased over 5 Zalman devices. I have purchased 3 Zalman cooling devices and a case from them previously. For a customer like myself, you would expect a company to try and resolve any problems I may have. Zalman is not such company. One of the computer fans in my case arrived broken. It would make a horrible clicking sound if I plug it in....
Cons: Like a few others on here Zalman does NOT honor their rebates..So if you buy their case don't expect to get a Rebate.You will be told they never got it. Newegg should not allow Zalman to get away with it...should tell Zalman to honor rebates or they will not sell Zalman products!
Pros: looks cool,good cable management, temp preview works and so do the usb,MOBA fits in nice and clean.
Cons: Well whenever i want to turn on my comp it will turn on for 5 seconds max then shut off so i decided to try and short it and it worked fine plugged the wires and everything in correct from the front faceplate and turned on power supply computer turns on for 5 seconds then turns off so now i'm stuck with this nice looking case that doesn't even work:( pretty lame having to short my mother board to turn on my comp
Summary: I wanted to love this case, but the flimsiness of the metal makes it unacceptable and I plan to return it.
Pros: Good ventilation with plenty of fans and room for more. Wide enough to accommodate Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler. Both sides open and there is room for cabling behind the MB.
Cons: The metal is unacceptably thin. After adding and removing a video card, the hole, which is used secure cards to the case, was completely stripped. It is now impossible to keep the card firmly seated. In other words, each card can only be secured once. If it is ever removed, it will be impossible to secure it to the case. Furthermore, the metal coverings for the cards cannot be replaced once they are removed. So now I have an unwanted opening in the back of the case.
Excerpt: Из коробки: Встроенные вентиляторы очень шумные и с подсветкой. В спальне крайне нежелательно устанавливать системный блок, заснуть не даст. Покупка новых вентиляторов обошлась еще в тыщу рублей.
Pros: Не нашел ничего выдающегося. Просторный, но разве это можно отнести к достоинствам? Ведь я изначально выбирал форм-фактора midi-tower.
Cons: Не ведитесь на маркетинг. Внешне корпус дешевка. Отвратная система охлаждения. Одноразовые аллюминивые планки на задней части корпуса.
