Thermaltake Max4

1. Introduction

Thermaltake (Tt) is well known in the market and end users for their quality Cooling Solutions and extreme PC cases. Although these products would be enough to please any end user, Tt has taken some steps toward other devices, and has established a very strong market for them as well. Today, we will be reviewing a Tt enclosure product, an external case, that serves as an Interface IDE to USB2.0 medium, where both Hard and Optical drives can be installed and put to use right away.

This product comes from the Max4 series, the 5.25 DVD enclosure in specific. Note here, that even though this enclosure is meant for DVD usage (one can install a DVD-ROM, RW device, or even a CD-ROM device, all in the 5.25 scale), the case can also host an internal HDD drive. So, we have an extra function in favor of the end user, who can change and use the enclosure to suit his needs.

Having said that, let us move on to the Specifications and Features of the MAX4 5.25 enclosure.
