Thermaltake SilverRiver 3.5inch External HDD Enclosure Review (Page 1)

Thermaltake have been in the game of supplying computer cooling products to the world for the best part of 5 years. Recently they've began thinking outside the square which is evident with the release of their SilverRiver 3.5" External HDD Enclosure. Mike checks out the USB 2.0 device and compares performance against an internal HDD on the IDE channel.

For those who have been hiding in a closet for the past few years, Thermaltake has become a force to be reckoned with in the realms of cooling. It doesn't matter whether you're looking to cool the processor, memory, hard drive, system or whatever; Thermaltake likely has something to handle the task. Some are better than others, of course, but cooling has long been a strong point for this company.

Lately, however, they have begun delving into other areas. Enclosures have become a popular line as well as a few other specialty items. Today we look at another of their newcomer line; the SilverRiver 3.5" HDD Enclosure. But it isn't just a little cooler for the hard drive. It allows you to take that spare drive sitting on the shelf and attach it to your system externally.

So have a seat and relax as we see how well this concept works, and more importantly to the enthusiast in us, how well it handles data transfers.
