    Ew, Zalman just keeps getting worse and worse with these hideous blingtastic case designs.

    Blergh, definitely not for me!

    Im in S. Korea at the moment, and the whole place is mad for LEDs, flashy lights and bing bong noises.

    Food is good though

    What's with the cheap and nasty looking cases they are churning out these days? They used to make great cases like the Z-Machine GT1000 but now all they seem to do is tat.

    it is unusal but not for my taste. sleeker and quality finish is more important than these weird angle. Are they trying to do what NZXT does to their case?

    Re: News - Zalman launches the Z11 Neo ATX mid-tower chassis

    I don't much like the looks, not because because it's not a plain minimalist design but because they are mixing curves with angles.
    look at the original z11 http://www.zalman.com/global/product...ad.php?Idx=476 it's got that stealth fighter influenced look which isn't that bad.
    This new one is a sort of "we cannot quite agree how we want it to look" design, which is a shame.
    the change on the drive cage layout is good, replacing the slotted vents on the "scoops" with mesh looks better, still using 80mm fans on the side panels isn't so good and that brushed effect aluminium while it looks well done is rather out of place with the rest of the styling.

    The original z11 is a really good case, you might not like the looks, however for £44 http://www.scan.co.uk/products/zalma...mid-tower-case it's a good case for the price and having handled one "in the flesh" they are good quality.
