Thermaltake Max 4 HDD Enclosure Review

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980Ti G1 Gaming

Article Index

Summer is coming to a close and I decided to take my friend and his daughter out to the ice cream shop where we grew up in my home town of Winslow, NJ. We pile into the car and head down the highway for our twenty minute drive to the ice cream shop. On the way, we pass the wooded area where we used to go and have bonfires, only there were no woods left!! Apparently, someone decided that the area needed yet another storage lot for people to come and store their crap in. Ironically, when I get home from the ice cream adventure, I find a package containing a new product for me to review.

 

You guessed it. The package contained a storage enclosure for a HDD. Yet another storage device for people to store all of their digital crap. Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not against HDD enclosures because they are a wonderful idea, it's just the irony of how important storage has become in our way of life. With all of this attention on storage, however, the many choices in HDD enclosures leaves us wondering which is better, why, and what kind should we get. Thermaltake has introduced an enclosure that seems to have fit the answer for many of these questions concerning which one to buy.

 

The Thermaltake Max 4 HDD enclosure is an actively cooled enclosure for up to 2TB HDDs. The Thermaltake Max 4 HDD enclosure provides excellent protection for the enclosed hard drive. In addition to the active cooling by way of the blue LED fan, the Max 4 also features an attachable stand for convenient storage at your workstation with easy connections via USB or eSATA.
