ZALMAN Z-MACHINE GT1000 INTRODUCTION
When the subject of quality PC components comes up, the discussion will invariably turn to Zalman products. Zalman has been responsible for many of the best performing and visually appealing cooling products for virtually its entire existence as a company. But, they've also produced some of the finest enclosures that money can buy, with an emphasis on silent operation. Just over a year ago, we reviewed the Fatal1ty Champion Series (Model: FC-ZE1) case and were very impressed with it. (You can read the review HERE
.) Recently, Zalman has come out with the Z-Machine GT1000 chassis that builds on the success of the Fatal1ty case, borrowing the general design and adding some welcome improvements. They've graciously sent an example of the GT1000 for evaluation, and we'll be comparing it to its predecessor to see if Zalman has been able to make a great case even better.
Despite the fact that computers have become commonplace at home and at workplaces for a long time, true user-friendliness of the computers is still a long shot. At Zalman Tech, we strive to make that goal a closer reality through extensive research and development of our products. We were the world first in reducing computer's noise down to lower than 20dB, thus creating a more user-friendly computing environment. Now it is possible to use a computer without distracting noise and to form high fidelity audio system or home theatre without ambient noise.
Zalman Tech will continue to make efforts at creating more enhanced levels of user friendliness in computing; we believe that we have the ability and determination to achieve this goal. Your support and interest is greatly appreciated.
