Geeks are generally like my grandmother who grew up when folks didn’t have much, we don’t throw things away. We tend to use stuff until it breaks even if we have newer stuff already. We don’t just toss out a HDD because we went with a higher capacity version for our PCs; we shunt the old drives to other uses.
Trendnet has a couple new HDD enclosures that are perfect for the users who are looking for a DIY external storage solution that offers fast USB 3.0 connectivity. The new drive enclosures include the TU3-S25 and the TU3-S35. Both are very similar and use SATA I or II HDDs. The S25 can hold 2.5-inch HDDs and the S35 holds 3.5-inch HDDs.
Both of the enclosures are made from aluminum and that aluminum acts as a heat sink to keep the HDDs cool. The enclosures also have cooling vents on the rear and promise up to 5Gbps of performance. Both of the enclosures will ship soon with the S35 selling for $79.99 and the S25 selling for $59.99.Filed Under: DIY Projects, Hardware
