Final Thoughts, Pricing, Availability, Conclusion
After reviewing the exterior and interior features of the MS1000-HS2 I have to say my initial impressions of this case were correct — it is definitely a solid, well constructed, polished case that was simple to use during installation as well as during normal daily use. I liked the location of the power and reset buttons and the additional fan slots were quite welcome and came in handy when I added multiple hard drives and graphics cards.
Pricing and Availability
The Zalman MS1000-HS2 mid-tower case is available at Newegg.com for $174.99 and several other online vendors for around the same price. This price doesn’t include shipping so I’d take on about $15 when you go to purchase this case.
We’d like to thank Zalman for providing the MS1000-HS2 for our review today. The case itself is beautifully designed and goes away from many modern PC case designs that include tons of windows, LED fans, LED lights, and other flashy features. I actually prefer a case like the MS1000-HS2 that puts performance and functionality over flashy and cheap design elements. The included sound dampening material was definitely a bonus, but it would have been better to have all the interior walls covered in this material to make the case more silent. We also ran into a slight issue with the case feet because they are removable and actually come off when you slide the case around on the carpet. We found this out the hard way. Other than that, the Zalman MS1000-HS2 is well priced for its included features and should do well with consumers looking for a non-flash, full-featured mid-tower case for their home computers and gaming systems.
I love this case. It’s sleek
