With plenty of space and great airflow, the Z7 is an excellent entry-level case that holds its own against more expensive models....

Performance on this case is well within acceptable levels. The 4 included fans provided excellent air flow in and out of the case. The temperature on the LCD stays in the low 30s Celsius when it is put right at the base of the CPU. The fans are not...

Having never used a Zalman case before, I was a little leery about purchasing this case, but it had everything I was looking for to fit my $70 budget. Zalman is known for making quality cooling products and now it looks like they are making quality...

Overall, the Zalman Z7 Plus is an acceptable mid-tower chassis. It has some nice additions and features, as well as some areas where its lacking. The tool-free installation for the 5 1/4 bay drives and the PCI expansion slots are two great...

The Zalman Z7 Plus ATX Mid Tower chassis is a very decent chassis. Sure, no mistake here, we have seen better but they are more expensive as well. There are small flaws to be found in the chassis design, overall though it would get my thumbs up as...

The Z7 Plus's pluses don't quite make up for its minuses Zalman, a company better known for its CPU coolers than chassis, hasnt released a new case in a while, and its previous ATX-compatible entrants were not without flaws. But now...

Other minor beefs include the Z7s PSU location at the top of the case, not the bottom, plus the fact that you cant upgrade the USB 2.0 ports under the top panels lid. These quibbles aside, the Z7 Plus has a lot to like at a reasonable...

Whether Zalman's foray into the mainstream market turns out to be a good idea will depend on a lot of factors. However, if the Z7 Plus is any indication of things to come, they should do pretty well. First of all, the Z7 cases have a distinctive...

Zalman Z7 Plus has a very Spartan looks, especially when you compare it to other cases from Zalman. However, at a suggested price of only USD 75 (and will probably be found for less than that), we believe it will please the user looking for a case...

International Review By Clube do Hardware on

O Zalman Z7 Plus tem um visual muito espartano, especialmente quando voc o compara com outros gabinetes da Zalman. No entanto, com um preo sugerido de apenas US$ 75 nos EUA (provavelmente ele ser encontrado custando menos), ns...
