ThermalTake has introduced the Vi-On external hard drive enclosures. There are several different models; one for 2.5" HDDs and one for 3.5" HDDs. You can choose between USB 2.0 only but there's also a version with both USB 2.0 and eSATA connectivity. Additionally, you can also choose between a white or black design. Full specs at TT.
Vi-ON external hard drive enclosure is the world’s first external enclosure with embedded hard drive suspension system and Active Smart Cooling System. It utilizes a temperature sensing fan that reacts to hard drive temperature and changes fan speed in real-time for utmost efficiency and silence.
While most users do not realize, hard drives are capable of producing a fair amount of vibration when hard drives are at their maximum rotation speed. That is exactly why Thermaltake engineers designed-in the world’s first HDD suspension system to minimize those vibration noises.
Vi-ON’s outer design played an equally important role in the development process. Its unique tilted structural design along with eccentric metal mesh makes it visually pleasing to be placed anywhere in your home, and the removable base unit can be detached for effortless transport.
