Let’s take a look at the latest steel mid-tower case from Zalman, MS1000-HS2, which features six hot-swap bays and much more. Of course the use of steel instead of aluminum made this case to be heavy, but on the other hand allowed it to arrive on the market with a nice price tag for a product with so many features.

MS1000-HS2 is officially available in two colors options, black or white, but we could only find the black model being sold in the USA.

Like other cases from Zalman, MS1000-HS2 has a very sober and professional looks.

In Figure 3, you can see the front panel from this case. As you can see, this case doesn’t have a front door. This case has four external 5.25” bays (two of them coming with 5.25”-to-3.5” adapters, and one of these featuring a 2.5” adapter) and like other cases from Zalman (like GS1000 and GS1000 SE) the hard drives bays are accessible from the front panel. Each square module you see in Figure 3 is a removable cage that holds three 3.5” hard disk drive bays. We will talk more about them later.

Zalman MS1000-HS2 features a huge air filter on its bottom panel, accessible from outside the case. You need to remove one screw to remove this filter.
