Cooler Master Masterbox Pro 5

Offering both value and quality Cooler Master is known for exceptional hardware at a more than fair price. We are taking a look at one of their Mid-Tower chassis today, the MasterBox Pro 5 RGB with 3 RGB fans preinstalled; Cooler Master went with the 3 fans behind the black mirrored front to stash the fans behind. The front is easily removable and this puppy is so versatile you can go any build direction you want. It will take a 120mm, 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm radiator water cooling setup you can gaze at through a 4mm tempered glass side. Wiring this thing has more well-planned pigeon holes that we even care to count. We would run a wire to the area where it needed to be and exactly at that spot was a pigeonhole that perfectly fit the connector we needed to run.

CineRAID Home Series 116 USB 3.0 HDD Docking Station

It is a question that is almost as old as the computer hard drive itself. What do I do with this old hard drive? As soon as people started upgrading the storage on their computers, that question has been asked. For quite some time, the options were limited. You could reuse it, sell it, or recycle it. This brings us to the CineRAID CR-H116. The CineRAID CR-H116 USB 3.0 hard drive dock allows a person to use any new or maybe not so new 2.5 or 3.5 SATA 6Gb/s drive and dock it to the computer of his or her choice

VisionTek DriveXpander

VisionTek has come up with the DriveXpander. The DriveXpander is a rather unique solution that allow the user to add a single 2.5” bay into the rear expansion slot of most PC based desktops and legacy Mac Pros, offering full hot swap capability for SATA 2.5" hard drives and SSDs. It also doe not take up any more room than a typical PCI or PCIe expansion card.

With a recent hardware failure in my file server, I quickly learned the value of having a few dual-port storage docking stations on hand. In this review, I am going to take an in-depth look at one of the more budget friendly USB 3.0 docking stations on the market. Jump in and check out my thoughts and performance results of Kingwin's PD-2537U3 Power Dock.

Hard Drive Duplication is one of those things that most people will rarely use in their life, but I can attest that when you need it, a device like this will save you big time! The ability to have a functional storage docking station with drive cloning functionality is a major advantage as you can buy the product for something you will use more than just once a blue moon. Join me today as I review Vantec's new NexStar HDD Duplicator.

Hard drive docking stations are a dime-a-dozen these days, and it seems like every manufacturer of custom PC hardware has their own variant on the single bay and dual bay drives. In this review I am going to get to the bottom of what makes Enermax's Ultrabox EB311SC unique, and put it through some rigorous testing.

VisionTek Wallet Drive

The VisionTek Wallet Drive allows a person to use any new or not so new 2.5 SATA I/II/III to create a portable drive. The enclosure can be connected by USB 3.0. This alone would seem to be a great option, but they chose to take it a step further. VisionTek created a leather wrapped enclosure that looks more like a fashion accessory than the typical metal and/or plastic box.
