5 out of 5 eggsSecond only to Z5 plus

Pros: It's an awesome case for the money. It's almost too spacious for me.

Cons: If you are looking to buy this, just spend the extra 10 bucks and get a Z5 plus. It has a side window and another fan included. The price difference is more than compensated by the extra LED fan you get with the Z5.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

Pros: Very good case, simple design, sturdy, has enough room to put everything I want in and some more, dust filters on almost every vent, has two possible SSD bays. Pretty much everything you need for a good case.

Cons: If you have a non-module PSU, you're going to have a bad time with cable management. There is not much room on the bottom of the case to put your excess power cables.

Other Thoughts: The power cables are my only grief since I got a non-module PSU. Everything else, I'm very satisfied with. The case itself is not very heavy and works with most mobos. I love the simple design that the Z5 has. When I first took off the front panel and top panel (not the side panels) to get a look at the optical and floppy drives, I had to use a little more force than I wanted (I didn't know if it was meant to come off at first).

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: Very nice layout. Plenty of room behind motherboard to route cables. Black inside and out. Front panel connectors were long enough to work with my MSI mATX motherboard. Hard drives install tooless and face the connectors behind the motherboard. This is a great case for the money. Fan mounts on the bottom, top, and front and includes some mesh filters on the front.

Cons: The rear fan only has a molex connector so it can not be speed controlled by motherboard. The documentation included does not match the actual layout of case and overall is lacking. If you've put computers together before you'll figure it out but I was cussing it.
Tooless 5.25 bay setup is not documented and required some trial and error to get them to let go.
The screws the manual says to work with the MB standoffs are too large and will strip out. Use the small "A" bolts.

Other Thoughts: The case is very light and thus feels cheap. It looks nice and imho is adequate for any build I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsITS A GREAT CASE AT A GREAT PRICE!!!

Pros: I am very happy with this case especially at the price it goes for. I love the mounting of the 2.5" drives. The case has plenty of room and made cable management very easy. It does everything that it is supposed to and came with everything that it was supposed to. The screwless attachments for the drives made it a breeze to snap on and put where you want them. I love the look of the case. Has a nice lay at the top I can set my cell phone in while charging. I would recommend this case to anybody.

Cons: NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: Newegg got the case to me quick. It only took like three days and I was happy with this.

5 out of 5 eggsBest in price range

Pros: 1. Fairly solid design
2. Good cable management
3. Bottom mounted power supply
4. Great looks
5. Doubt you could get better for the money

Had lots of cases ranging from $20 to over $200 over the years, and this is a nice case regardless of the low price tag.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Box was slightly damaged from shipping but case was not harmed.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic but audio ports don't work.

Pros: Good airflow
Many fan mounts
Great build quality
looks great

Cons: My audio ports didnt work and still dont. Not that i need them but just took a egg for that.

Other Thoughts: Defiantly is a good case. And worth the money. The one thing i will have to complain about was that the motherboard mounts were a little weird and didnt line up with my board good? I dont know if it was my board but i dont think so.

3 out of 5 eggsgood case

Pros: Good case, excellent cable management, has lots of room eary to work with. Has dust filter which helps keep the dust out. I like the all black interior. I do like the fact that it has a place for 2.5 SSD drive no bracked needed. It worked great for my build

Cons: I give this three stars..
1. The hard drive rails are junk.. I broke one of them trying to put it on. Once they are on they are hard to get off the drive without breaking them.
2. The power button is not very good. It wiggles and the switch tried to come out of the power button socket.

3. Did not come with a top 120mm fan as advertised
4. Could have had more drive bays.
5. The 5.25 to 3.5 front panel cover does not want to stay in place when you take the cover off.

Other Thoughts: make sure you have the drive rails on correct before trying to mount the drives becasue they will only silde in on one side and they are hard to get off without breaking them.
The rest switch is fine but the power button is poor. Thinking about calling Zalman to see if they will send me a new front panel. Power button works but could have been designed better. If you use a 3.5 inch card reader make sure the slot cover is on good it sometimes pops out of place. Bad think is I broke a set of rails so If I ever want to put more than 2 3.5 inch drives in I am short one bracket

4 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: fantastic cable management, fantastic fan placement, plenty of room for nearly anything you'd want to put in a case. also the face/top plates come off with ease without having to removing the side planes.

Cons: only thing i can say that would be considered negative is the power and reset button, i dislike the design of them.

Other Thoughts: i was after a case with great cable management and cooling, this case excels with both. if you're unsure on this case and features because of the price, don't be it's quality product.
