Summary: Once Zalman H1 case comes to the U.S. this will probably be obsolete, but who knows when that will be. Zalman fans should definitely go check that out. With that said, while I still have this case I also went ahead and purchased the Corsair 550d, NZXT Guardian 921, Bitfenix Prodigy M and Prodigy ITX cases. Corsair 550d is a lot more expensive, but as far as quality I love the Z9 Plus just as much.
Pros: 1. Still one of the best in its price range and even better than some higher priced ones. 2. Sufficient ventilation for fans. You can add a lot of led fans in there to make it look amazing. 3. Despite having been released for a while, it's still the best looking Zalman case.
Cons: 1. I've purchased a lot of Zalman products and I never had to complain about a single product, but when I did email them to ask a question, even after a week I got no response. They should work on improving their customer service. Their U.S. phone # disappeared too o.O;; 2.This Z9 Plus kinda needs an update such as a USB 3.0 3. I don't need three 5.25" drive bays. A smaller micro ATX version of this would be so cool and probably be the best mATX case ever. Only a day ...
Summary: C'est le meilleur boîtier de moins de 100$ que j'ai acheté à vie. Zalman nous offre une excellente facture et un beau travail d'ingénierie. Je le recommande à tous, même pour un premier montage, vous devrez par contre porter une attention particulière lors du démontage des panneaux suppérieur et avant pour éviter de briser les attaches en plastic. Boîtier solide, léger et visuellement très intéressant pour un prix très abordable même à plein prix.
Pros: Qualité de fabrication, espace, ventilation efficace, qualité visuelle, fan controller, afficheur de température
Cons: manque d'information sur le démontage des panneaux suppérieurs et avant.
Summary: This case is a great value. It's my second time using it for a budget build for friends, and it does the job every time. For a case in this pricepoint, its got a cool design, a useful front panel with temp display, fan speed (if you use it), 4 USB ports and your audio. Hard drive installation is nice and quick once you've screwed in the rubber noise dampeners. There are some nice spots to mount an SSD (2 that I noted).
Pros: This case is quiet a great case as it has good air flow the design is quite nice there is an option to mount SSD drive behind motherboard an it has a nice cut out at the back as well. case comes with rubber washers to prevent HDD vibration as well for the PSU over all it's a good buy.
Cons: Well some of the fans are pretty loud so consider changing them to a fan of your choice or get some rubber fan silencers if you want a quiet system
Pros: *Cheap for the quality *Sturdy built *Plenty of space for cable management *Nice airflow *lots of extra features to take advantage of, such as temp display, and fan control. *4 usb ports right on front *Looks cool with the blue lights
Cons: *Had a hard time mounting the 2.5 in hdd in the hard drive bay, had to buy another five dollar part but other than that no complaints
Summary: I just purchased this case to update my comp Because my old case couldn't handle the length of the newer Video cards. I must say for the price I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Great case with nice fan options(4) and a temp led read out on the front fan filters, ect. Lots of room for my future upgrades such a liquid cooling & newer Video card. Lots of room behind for cables.
Summary: I love this case. Clasic yet modern. Lots of airflow to keep components cool and room to add more fans if needed. The room behind the mobo is generous enough to hide all of my extra cables from my non- modular PSU which keeps things neat and tidy when viewing through the window. The internal case temp. display and the fan speed control are nice touches so if things start to heat up you just crank up the fans (2) which by the way are very quiet and blue led lit.
Pros: Looks, 4 fans, temp. display and fan control and decent room behind mobo to hide cableing. Very nice exterior finish.
Summary: I am very happy with this case i just got it and had it for a week it is very nice and big, very sturdy and well built lots of good quality materials,also does very good on cooling my video card doesnt go much over 70 degrees where as my old case kept it running at 100 and overheating it.
Pros: Very good cooling has 4 very silent fans even at full power, can control fan speed, temperature lcd, supports big graphics cards, good amount of slots for dvd drives and other...also good amount of hdd space, good cable management lots of tie slots, overall just very good
Cons: I have no cons with this case it is very good
