Since 1996, I have been looking for a PC fan controller that could survive the demands of multiple cooling fans. Numerous times, the fan controllers I ordered would fail due to ineffective DC circuitry that would simply overheat and fail after just a few hours of use.
Hard drive enclosures are now beginning to adopt the USB 3.0 interface which is supposed to blow USB 2.0 and any other interface out of the water. Today we are testing the Sunbeam Tech Airbox USB 3.0 Enclosure to see how much faster it really is. The Airbox can handle 3.5″ or 2.5″ (won’t be secure) drives. We will test it with our Samsung HD501IJ 500GB SATA 3.0GBps hard drive. Unlike other compact enclosure this one has a cooling fan with LED, so it cools while looking cool at the same time. It can support drives up to 2TB (terabytes) so you have a lot of room to expand. Let’s see how fast it really is.
