Connectivity is king for external storage devices. The more ways a user can connect, the more ways the user can access their data in any situation. The IOCELL NetDisk SOLO NEWFAST is a sleek external hard drive enclosure offering four ways of connecting to the drive: USB, eSATA, direct Ethernet, and via a network connection.

External hard drive enclosures are nothing new, we have seen them since the USB 1.0 days. Now that USB 3.0 is becoming standard on most motherboards and cases we are seeing many USB 3.0 external hard drive enclosures coming out. One such external hard drive enclosure is the Goliath from Hornettek. This is a larger external hard drive enclosure as the name Goliath suggests so it will fit a 3.5-inch hard drive. Let’s check it out and see what is all about.
Our friends over at Hornettek were nice enough to send us over their Goliath USB 3.0 external hard drive enclosure. With the popularity of 2.5-inch solid state drives it is very hard to find hard drive enclosures that support larger 3.5-inch hard drives. Luckily Hornettek has the Goliath that does support 3.5-inch hard drives and even better it is a USB 3.0 enclosure and has an 80mm cooling fan included.

External hard drive enclosures are very common these days, especially with large file sizes of HD movies and other content. A single-drive external hard drive enclosure works for most people, but people who want to protect their data and want faster speeds opt for a dual hard drive enclosure with RAID capabilities. Today we will be looking at one such enclosure from ICY DOCK called the MB662US-2S, which features RAID 0, RAID 1, BIG, and JBOD configurations. Let’s see if this is the perfect external enclosure for you.
When it comes to external hard drive enclosure’s the 2.5-inch market is not that popular. Mainly because so many people use older 3.5-inch drives with 3.5-inch enclosures. The thing about 3.5-inch enclosures is that they are large and not easy to carry with you. The MB668U-1SB 2.5-inch enclosure from ICY DOCK is not only small and light it also allows you to install a hard drive with no tools at all. Another interesting thing about this enclosure is that not only does it have a USB connection it has an eSATA connection as well.
