The new version of the chassis from Zalman Z9 Plus

The company Zalman continues to utilize the design of the whole successful chassis Z9, releasing a new model Z9 Plus D4-U3. Perhaps, the only difference from the recent Z9 U3 is the lower part of the front panel, made in the form of letter D.



The list of applied characteristics has remained the same. The body is made of steel and plastic in the form factor Mid-Tower. Its dimensions are 504 (L) x 207 (W) x 464 (H) mm, weight — a little over 7 lbs. Inside can be placed the motherboard ATX or microATX, seven cards PCI-E expansion up to 290 mm, ATX-compatible power supply, three optical drives, and seven hard drives, including two SSD 2.5 format.


The set includes two 120-mm fan — in front with the LED-backlit display and on the back without it. On the input-output is a small information display, two USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0, Mini-Jack connectors for headphones and microphone.


Zalman Z9 Plus D4-U3 will debut in Japan and perhaps in some other markets, August 19 at a …

BenQ Promotes a New PC Monitor with 1 ms Response Time

BenQ, a Taiwanese developer of diversified PC equipment, promotes its new monitor that will be released later this year. Codenamed RL2455HM, the model replenishes 'RL' gaming series and is primarily intended for the connection with gaming consoles.

BenQ RL2455HM features 24-inch display and 16:9 aspect ratio. It is characterized by Full HD resolution (1920x1080), 60 Hz scanning, wide viewing angles (170 degrees vertical, 160 degrees horizontal), and high dynamic contrast ratio that achieves 12 million to 1 index. This monitor employs TN panel but can boast quite an outstanding response time: on gray-to-gray switch, array response time equals to 1 ms only. This is a dramatic breakthrough, if compared with the majority of other gaming displays that demonstrate from 4 to 7 ms time.
