SilverStone DS322 Dual Bay USB 3.0 Enclosure Review

Sometimes it can be hard to find an easy, affordable and reliable solution for external PC backups in one product. I have used several HDD enclosures and NAS products from several different makers and never really fell in love with any of them. Most of them have extremely complicated menus that you have to sift through to try and figure out how to change the RAID setup of the device. Then you have to wait several hours just for it to format a few hundred Gigs of space. In the past, when deciding on a RAID capable enclosure you really need to prioritize what is important to you and ask yourself a few questions. How much does it cost? How reliable it is? How easy is it to use? Keep all of those questions in mind as you read this review and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with this enclosure.

Unboxing the IOCELL NETDISK Hard Drive Enclosure

Most hard drive enclosures are the same, but the NETDISK from IOCELL Networks is a little bit different. As the same suggest it is network-connected so you have a network connection along side the USB and eSATA connections. This means you can share everything on your drive with the devices that are connected to your network like your Xbox 360 or media center. The extra USB and eSATA connections mean you can also take the drive with you and use it where you may not have an ethernet connection available.

Unboxing the Hornettek Goliath USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure
