5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with it

Pros: Looks good, well built, good location and number of ports, very quiet with fans on low speed (on case switch - very nice), nice features besides.

Cons: Only one during build - number of mounting points for mobo.

Other Thoughts: I deliberated a long time before deciding on this, and do not regret it at all. The biggest factors that made me decide on it were all the good ratings and the usb & audio ports along with the drive bays. This is a great case for a desktop with room to grow, well made and shipped with no problem. Was only surprised by the fact that it only had 5 mounting points for the board, but that's not a big deal. I highly recommend this case, it's worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Case Ever

Pros: Comes with everything standoffs, mounting screws, ect, ect allot of cases don't include much nowadays. The best thing about this case is how zalman includes thumb screws for the motherboard!!!!! this has to be the best and easiest way to mount a motherboard, other companies should learn from zalman, this is the second zalman tower that we have used and will continue to use this brand as they clearly know we the consumers want. Oh and it has a two fan, fan controller.

Cons: Only issue is some of the clips to get the top bezel off were almost impossible to reach, ended up using a flat-head screw driver and some good ole elbow grease. Another issue was that we couldn't use the top most 5.25 bay because the front i/o cables were in the way and the drive couldn't slide all the way back because the top front fan was in the way, The cd drive was an average length so not like it was a longer cd drive. No biggie I guess that they are assuming the top bay will be used for add on like fan controller or media card reader.

4 out of 5 eggsGood case... could be better

Pros: + Nice, simple plain-jane case.
+ Nicely finished inside & out.
+ Plenty of wire tie down points
+ USB 3.0 with recess area for portable HD's
+ Power button has a nice feel to it

Cons: - Tray for 3.5" devices such as media card reader doesn't work too well
- 5.25" area blocks air flow to inside the case
- Top cover tabs suck. Should be a similar mechanism as the front cover. Already broke one of the plastic tabs (fix this, and I would give it 5 eggs)

Other Thoughts: Sure, it doesn't have tool-less mounts, but, a poorly designed tool-less mount is even worse (I experienced them before)...the old fashioned way still works, especially since I'm not constantly swapping components

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice Case

Pros: Very weel made, not cheap and flimsy like many cases. Excellent cable management. Bottom mount PSU. Plenty of room. Looks Great. Probably the nicest case I have ordered in a long time and I build at least a couple computers a week. I will be getting more of these for sure.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: only slightly more than the Z9 and much nicer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case, worth the money.

Pros: Side Panel, Side Panel, Side Panel, the fact that this case looks nice in the front and has a great design WITH a side panel makes it a steal***

2 USB 3.0's/2 USB 2.0's (the 3.0's are nicely placed at the top with a little indent for hard drives and any other devices you may be using, which is nice)

Comes with almost silent case fans that shine through the SIDE PANEL <333333. Nice roomy area for my GTX 660 SC. I love this case so much its just perfect, I thought I was settling but trust and believe, it settled for me :')

The case came with everything I needed and replacement pieces in case anything happened, also provided me with zip ties for my sexy cable management.

There's even a nice little side slot for an SSD holyyyyyyy.

Cons: the thumb screw at the top right was hard to take off, but I just got my little trusty wrench and got it out.

Other Thoughts: Would be nice to see a tool-less method of getting in my drives, but other than that, everything's good.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good deal!

Pros: Fairly sturdy, Well made!
Nice moderate size, big enough, not too big.
Looks like a computer case should, won't scare small kids and pets.
Enough fan mounts/ ventilation for most builds.

Cons: Break away expansion slot covers. Buy at least they provide a couple of REAL slot covers if you should need to cover up a mistake or change your configuration.
Have no idea if this case would be appropriate for multiple graphics cards, many disk drives, the biggest water cooling setup you can find, but I don't care.

Other Thoughts: At the price I paid, this was a real bargain! $48.99 before a $10 rebate. So I may have purchased this for a net of 38.99. I had originally purchased a comparable case from another POPULAR manufacturer but returned it because I opened the box and the front bezel fell off. Glad it did, as this case has a much better construction (that was a 5 egg case, really?).
This will be used as part of a VM host build for database lab work, windows, linux, etc. Should be just about perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case!

Pros: Had plenty of room to put all of my components in. It even fit my HD 7950 graphics card in. This case comes with 3 fans which is pretty awesome and they are actually nice quality. Came with all the screws you'll need. Cable management is pretty good. A very nice window to see all components. Removable fan filters are also nice.

Cons: No 2.5" sleds
Once PCI backplates are removed there is no going back.

Other Thoughts: for the optional bottom fan make sure your psu isnt too big or else you might have trouble installing a 120mm fan.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased!

Pros: Very spacious -- no problems fitting an ATX board. Lots of hard drive bays. Nice finish, looks pretty fancy. Lots of easily-accessible USB ports on the case, good fans. 2.5" solid state mount on the right wall of the case.

Cons: Only comes with one hard drive sled, but that's not a huge deal. Also, watch out for the I/O shield -- I almost lost a finger :P

Other Thoughts: I was very pleased with this case. It's sturdy and of good quality. There's plenty of room for installation, and I was happy that both side panels are removable. Cable management is pretty easy with all of the various holes for routing. I was surprised by the blue LED -- I guess I didn't read the tech overview closely enough! It's nice though -- not too bright, and a nice shade.
