Thermaltake MAX-1562




Here we get our first look at the front of the MAX-1562 enclosure. The six drive sleds all lock in place with the red slide to keep the sleds in, but the enclosure doesn't offer any secure locks with keys for drive security.


There are two LEDs on the back of the PCB for each drive sled. One shows through the slit on the front of the bay to show that a drive is present and the other glows through the red plastic and shows activity.




Standard 5.25" mounting points on the side of the enclosure fit tool less cases, but the holes are threaded for cases that require screw mounting.




Thermaltake placed the 4-pin Molex power connector as far to the side as possible and later in this review, you'll see why this was a good idea. Just above the power connector is a toggle switch for the lights on the front that can be turned off. This is a nice feature for media centers.




The other side is a mirror image of the first side we looked at.




The drive sleds are metal and hold the drives securely in the enclosure.
