Thermaltake Max4

4. Conclusion

The need for constant backups and versatility has pushed the manufacturers in creating backup solutions in the form of external devices and USB sticks. But the largest part in the back up scene, is taken by the external enclosures, used to host HDD drives as well as DVD-RW-ROM drives. The Max4 5.25 is an external DVD-ROM enclosure, an IDE to USB2.0 interfaced case, that can host both CD/DVD devices, as well as HDD IDE drives. Notice that not all enclosures can host HDD devices.

The Max4 5.25 of the Max4 enclosure cases series, is a fancy, polished designed case, that weights about 1600g and it can be described as rather big enclosure, due to its potential to host a 5.25 drive. Its performance as we've seen from the tests in the previous pages, is good mostly with CD/DVD devices. However we didn't like the fact that the drive failed to reach its maximum reading speed of 16X. In case of HDD there is a great difference as it was expected but even in that case performance is good.

At the time of this review the price of the Max4 was $34.
