Looks like these cases are now available at Newegg and around other retailers... Anyone heard anything good or bad about them? Worth reviewing for LR?

Zalman usually makes pretty decent stuff. Not the best but far from the worst. I've never seen one of their cases personally.

Good looking design although I'm not sold on the top mounted PSU. I like bottom mounted units so the top can be left open for an extra exhaust fan. There are very few cable management options too but tons of room for large coolers provided you leave the 2nd fan off the side. I like the fact that you can move the drive cage up and down depending on your needs such as if you have a longer than average video card.

I had toyed with the idea of getting the Plus case for my i3 build but decided on a Thermaltake V3 with some high quality, low noise fans to keep things quiet.
