I've seriously have been looking at upgrading my case to one with a touchscreen panel. This will be going into my dedicated theater room and will be my HTPC powerhouse for BD/HD-DVD, HDTV, Gaming, etc. in that room. I have a server that will house the storage, so I'll take 2-3 drives in my HTPC case.
I've been looking at the Moneual 932P and the Zalman HD160XT Plus (this appears to be the latest model coming soon per the Zalman website). Both have the touchscreens I've been wanting and both look to be solid cases. I've seen the smaller, non-touchscreen Zalman and think the build quality is just fantastic. Very solid.
Cosmetically, they are similar (except drive and touchscreen locations) and seem to offer up plenty of ventilation/fans for good airflow. I was set on the Zalman until someone showed me the Moneual. They are both similar in price (not MSRP!), so that makes it more difficult. I know the Zalman brand real well for cooling, so I figured they might have a one up there. On the flip-side, I've never heard of Moneual. Their website says they are dedicated to making killer HTPC systems, and it looks like they integrate well with Vista (which I am running now).
Has anyone had experience with either of these? One case? Both cases?

Thanks for your help. Any reviews, tips, tricks, info on either is much appreciated!
