Sunbeamtech Zorro ATX Case
September 11, 2006

Conclusion:

I have lived with the Sunbeamtech Zorro case for almost two weeks now, and I am very happy with it.

My PC sits to the left of me on a very long desk and the Zorro case allows me to do hardware modifications without having to unplug and move it. Even without the Grand Air Duct I have noticed an average temperature drop of 2-3 degrees C across the board from the Cooler Master Centurion 532 that this system used to be housed in. The 1 foot side opening has a lot to do with the kinds of temperatures I am seeing. It's almost like there is no side panel at all. I would love to see Sunbeamtech add a 120mm fan up top, as there is definitely room for one. I am not a big fan of the push to open door at the top of the case over the USB connectors; it just doesn't seem to fit on this case with the very cool drive bay cover. Sunbeamtech has outdone themselves by including three 120mm fans with the Zorro.


There are only a few drawbacks to the Zorro, one being the access around the hard drive cage and the way hard drives are secured to the cage. This could have all been remedied by putting in a removable drive cage or mounting a permanent cage in the standard location just behind the front fan. The second drawback is the fact that the Grand Air Duct is not always usable in all configurations, including mine.

Overall I really like the Sunbeamtech Zorro and can highly recommend this case to anyone (especially folks that need access to their hardware from the wrong side)! There is some confusion as to whether the Zorro always comes with a 450 Watt power supply or not, so check before buying.

The Sunbeamtech Zorro is only listed at one store via PriceGrabber, but it can be found at many others if you look around, and the lowest price I could find was $58.00 at Newegg.com. This price even includes a 450 Watt power supply!!! This case is worth every penny of $58.00 even without a power supply, if the included power supply is of any quality at all, this case is easily worth twice the price.

I award the Sunbeamtech Zorro a final rating of "Highly Recommended".


Pros:

Price
BTX style design
Front door operation
Included 120mm fans
Grand Air Duct

Cons:

Hard drive cage location
Tight fit on SATA connectors
