"While its looks are clearly designed by the gods themselves, it’s not followed through into some of the core design aspects – obviously someone made a list of every feature they could think of and someone else drew a kick ass looking case – then the two were pressed together between someone's palms, hoping to get the ultimate PC case. It hasn't happened here with the Zalman HD160XT Plus – it needs to be seamless and work without issue but it just isn't as we continually had to find ways around problems.
It does a lot of good things and it will look a perfect complement to any home theatre setup – I know because I've used the original Zalman HD160 as an HTPC case for the past six months, but I wouldn't ever consider upgrading, it's just not worth over twice the price. And while I love the full colour display with the huge potential it brings over a standard VFD – it's just not as easy to use and customise as I'd like.
