2 out of 5 eggsP155 Poor Design

Pros: Solid construction, sturdy, plenty of cooling

Cons: No place to hide cables behind main board, hard drive juts out all the way to the side panel, no room for a tall CPU cooler, cheap hard drive rails.

Other Thoughts: What this case could have been! had the designers just opted to give it a half inch of extra space on either side. And those cheap hard drive rails! I tried to remove them to remount the hard drive in another position, and they snapped!! I would never buy another of these cases!

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome case

Pros: Great quality and features at this price point. Solid. Great styling, Not to flashy. Plenty of room for average build. I have 3HDD and 1SSD. A Xigmatek Gia cooler (verry tall), A full size motherboard. MSI 7850, 2 optical drives and all fits nicley.

Cons: Could use a little more room behind the motherboard tray to hide wires, but is sufficient.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat first build case

Pros: -plenty of fan space
-roomy with plenty of cable space behind the motherboard
-convenient and easy drive bay setup

Cons: -kinda wish the side panel was larger
-the front usb 3.0 hookup needs to be run through the top of the case, out the back and then plugged into a usb 3.0 hub on the back of the case, which is somewhat tacky
-the manual is extremely minimal and doesn't really help me distinguish parts
-the PWR switches on the front panel that plugs into the motherboard doesn't distinguish the + or - end
-depending on the phone you use, the top spot for it isn't large enough (does not accomodate a Galaxy S4
-the sides bow out slightly, but not nearly enough to render any bad remarks.
-mine was off center, and i have to use postcards to stabilize it.

Other Thoughts: hey i know that it looks really bad to be able to list a lot more negatives than positives, but this is a great case for a new builder. it comes with a lot of good features for ease and convenience, despite the minor flaws.

4 out of 5 eggsCool Gaming Case

Pros: Looks like a premium case for a gamer that wants to show off. Great built quality and really well done paint job.

Cons: Restrictive fan vents. Not so great included fans. USB 3.0 front panel ports requires a too-short, fat ugly cable to be run along the top, out the back, and into a rear port on the motherboard - absolutely horrific design.

1 out of 5 eggsBe warned

Pros: OK case for the price, no problems except now the power button is broken. Which will require another case.

Cons: Overall a decent case for the price, caught it on sale with a rebate for around $40 after rebate. Unlike some users they did honor the rebate.
However the power button is now broken, which seems to be a common problem with this product.
I have emailed zalman and am waiting for a response. The toll free number the Zalman rep keeps posting on newegg for these complaints is NOT IN SERVICE.
Why keep posting an out of service number for customers to call.
I can only guess it is to make themselves look like they are actually available to customers. I do have an email in but expect no response if my experience is like so many others.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. Next time I will avoid Zalman altogether.
Save yourself the trouble and buy another brand. Zalman quality is poor and customer service is poor as well.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear valued customer,

We sincerely apologize for the issue. Please contact our customer service e-mail support.usa@zalmanusa.com or via toll free number 1-888-925-6266 for further assistance.

Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent good price case case

Pros: everything fit inside the case well. power switch worked without problems. fans is quiet. case is overall quiet. I am running only the rear single fan and have a AMD FX 6350 with a cooler master aftermarket 212 cooler and the case is silent. I am not overclocking so that cpu fan is bearing spinning. I believe that you can make a case quiet by using a good cooler. Lots of room inside the case. SSD mount was very easy and convenient. You don't need a special SSD bracket to mount the SSD with this case.

Cons: top panel fit and attachment to case is loose and feels cheap. case feels light and a little flimsy at first but when you put all the components in feels more sturdy

Other Thoughts: got it for 30 dollars after the rebate and i consider it a good deal at this price range. If you are after a quiet case you can go with this one provided that you go for an aftermarket heat sink.

1 out of 5 eggsPower switch problem

Pros: Cheap, cheap nothing but cheap.

Cons: It has power switch problem. The power switch is sticky. When I press it in to power up, it does not pop back out. Then power switch will be permanently stuck. Sometimes computer doesn't turn on.

Other Thoughts: I requested the RMA replacement part but they sent a defective part. I asked it again then they never replied. A horrible company. Zalman USA won't honor their warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsGood budget case!

Pros: 3x 120mm fans and are pretty quiet at 100%, window, and leds! This case has a decent mount of room in it. Wiring management is really good too so you can show it off! have had this case since February of this year and no problems. Bought this case because it was fairly cheap and because it came with fans.

Cons: The only con i had was around the outside the case where the the power supply sits, had a little bend in the mounting bracket where the power supply screws to..not really a con because its thin metal and was easily bent back without issue.

Other Thoughts: I am thinking about getting the cooler master 212 evo. If anyone has used the cooler with this case let me know please!

1 out of 5 eggsCheap & Cheaply Made

Pros: It's cheap. I got it for $25 after rebate. It is also light. For the price, it offers a lot. It has 3 fans and 2 sliding side panels for easy access to CPU fan installation and cable management,

Cons: This case feels cheap. The case bolts for my ASUS motherboard are too long. So it does not hold the mother board firmly to the case. I had to add a couple of washers to make the bolts work. It's a bad start!

Within a week of my computer being build, the power switch was sticky. When you press it in to power up, it sometimes does not pop back out. A week later the power switch is now permanently stuck. What a pain!

Check other reviews on Zalman cases. Be ware that this is a common problem - stuck power buttons! I thought Zalman was a quality brand? Well, certainly not when it comes to cases!

Other Thoughts: I've built several computers for the family over the past few years and I usually use mid or high end cases. This time I decided to spend less on the case and put more money into the CPU/MOBO. When I saw the Z5 Plus going for $25, I thought "WOW" - great value. This turned out to be such a mistake. What a headache. What a pain. STAY AWAY!!! I did call the Zalman Support and they told me to fill out a form on the website to get a replacement power button. Well, we'll see how long that takes and whether the replacement button is any better.

If I have to dismantle the entire computer and put the computer components in a another case as a permanent solution, that will be a royal pain in the rear end!

This case has been nothing but a headache. Do not buy. It is not worth it. There are much better value cases from other companies such as NZXT

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case for $60

Pros: *comes with three fans (2x LED)
*has USB 3.0
*black interior
*has fan controller
This is a great budget case. Exactly what I was looking for. Definitely recommend this case. All black with an all black interior w/ blue LED fans make it a winner

Cons: ONLY CON:
* the USB "header" isn't an actual header, its just a regular USB plug. Fortunately there is a small notch at the back of the top bezel so you can route the cable to the I/O, which makes it fairly discrete.
