We have a couple of projects planned with the Thermaltake MAX-1562 enclosures; the image above is from one such project. Without the MAX-1562 units, all of these drives would have to dangle off of the side of a table or fanned out across a desk with the wires heading back to the computer RAID controller. I haven't seen a regular tower computer case that has the ability to hold 18 2.5" drives from the factory. The Thermaltake MAX-1562 helps fill that need.
In this review, we talked about the fans, but didn't discuss if they were audible. The fans are extremely quiet in the MAX-1562 and we couldn't hear them at all, even when the enclosure was outside of the computer case. In our testing we also saw the performance of the drive stayed the same with the enclosure as it did without it.
At $72.99, the Thermaltake MAX-1562 is an excellent value for those with the need to install a handful of 2.5" drives in a desktop. The system works as it should, doesn't slow drive performance and is easy to install.
In the end, that's really all you want in a drive enclosure.
