  • Zalman maintains its reputation of the developer of products that are different from others. The Zalman GS1000 is a perfect system case for building a top-end computer. It supports E-ATX mainboards, allows to hide the cables and provides easy access to...

  • The Zalman GS1000 I think is one of the better cases to be manufactured this year when it comes to functionality and pricing. The six removeable hard drive trays them themselves would set you back a few benjamins alone. The cooling possibilities are tr...

  • Too expensive given the competition, Will have to add more fans to realize full case cooling potential, No ESATA port
  • Overall I like this case. The fit and finish is excellent and the blend of high-gloss (black or Titanium) and brushed aluminum finishes looks great. There is plenty of room inside to work along with good cable management. There are also plenty of d...

  • Styling, Fit and finish, Excellent cable management, Hot swap SATA bays, Tons of room,
  • Price, Lack of fans, Too much plastic
  • While this was a nice case to work with and the build quality was equally good, I have a hard time recommending it due to the price point. There are so many good competitors whose prices are lower that are offering a lot more bang for the buck. The fi...

  • Despite its admittedly excellent cooling ability, we still have a lot of reservations about the GS1000. Its significantly noisy with the included fans which is a major let down, especially as in the past Zalman is a company youd associate with quiet...
