New review by me…
Quote: “So this is review number 800 for us and you’d think I might have something exciting for such a milestone, but no I’ve just got an external hard drive enclosure from a company called Mukii. The name of the enclosure is long, it’s the TransImp TIP-330U2-BK 3.5” USB 2.0 Aluminum External Hard Drive Enclosure. Yes it’s USB 2.0 so it’s not exactly speedy but then again you don’t always need superfast for everything you do. The enclosure is aluminum which helps in heat dissipation an it looks good too. So read on to learn more… “
Quote: See a theme lately here? Yep it’s storage themed reviews we’ve been doing, but don’t worry that will change soon. Today for review I’ve got another product from Hornettek called the Viper which is a USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure for 3.5” SATA drives. The Viper is nicely made and looks great in its basic black coloring, but looks aren’t everything so I’m here to test it out as well. Read on…

"Up for review today I’ve got another USB 3.0 enclosure, this time from Vantec. It’s called the NexStar 3 SuperSpeed External Hard Drive Enclosure and it’s certainly a very nice looking product. Looks aren’t everything though are they, so that’s why this review, to see how it performs. I’ve put it up against a few other enclosures I’ve got on hand, so continue on to see how it does. "
Quote: USB 3.0 is the future and it’s here now, there’s no doubt it’s fast but there isn’t much yet in the way of pre-built hard drives on the market just yet that can take advantage of its speed. The solution of course is to get an aftermarket enclosure like the one I have today from Hornettek called the Viper. This enclosure is small and well made; I put it up against another USB 3.0 enclosure and found that it actually performs a bit better.
