Review : Quiet PC/Zalman TNN 300 System
Tarinder Sandhu
Monday 8th August, 2005

"Considered solely from an engineering viewpoint, the Quiet PC/Zalman TNN 300 is an overwhelming success. You begin to appreciate just how quiet it is when the near-silent hard drive begins to sound like a SCSI drive. The chassis is compact, well-made, looks good, and can accommodate internal components that are considered to be mid-to-high-end. Excellence in engineering is almost always accompanied by significant price premiums. That's true here, too, as the complete Quiet PC setup costs around $1,000, or around $400 more than an air-cooled setup."

Excellent article:

"Les cartes rapides et les lentes sont au même prix. Problème, rien ne les distingue sur l'emballage ; mais si on fait le bon choix, l'appareil gagnera du temps à l'enregistrement des photos et lors de leur transfert vers l'ordinateur."
