Thermaltake VI-ON 2.5-inch USB HDD Enclosure

USB carry-around storage never looked so good. Chris spends some time with a neat 2.5" enclosure from Tt.

Thermaltake VI-ON 2.5-inch USB HDD Enclosure




Piano Black is the new, well….black. It started a couple of years ago when I retired my brushed aluminum Sony STR-DA4ES receiver and upgraded to a Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi in piano black. Ever since then the finish has mesmerized me. Is TweakTown reviewing home theater equipment now? No, not really, but this does tie in with today's review of the Thermaltake VI-ON 2.5" USB portable hard drive.


The Thermaltake VI-ON 2.5" is available in white and piano black. When I say piano black, I really mean it; this thing is shiny and you can use it as a mirror when new. The "when new" part is pretty important as you will soon also see.


Portable storage has become pretty popular and there are several ways the average consumer can carry around a lot of data. Some people may choose to carry a thumb drive, but most thumb drives are fairly small when it comes to capacity; the largest I have seen for sale to date is 64GB, but those cost a fortune. If you need large capacity and a low cost solution with high portability, a USB hard drive is the only way to go.


Let's take a look at Thermaltake's new VI-ON line and see what it has to offer.
