This is an extremely useful device; I’m surprised I haven’t seen more 2.5-inch devices like this with solid state drives becoming more affordable. As I said earlier in the review many cases don’t have spaces for 2.5-inch hard drives only select new cases do so adding the Max 4 is simple and gives you room for 2 2.5-inch hard drives not just one.
Installation of the Max 4 is so simple and as long as you have an open 3.5-inch external drive bay you are good to go. The drives slide in without any mounting hardware needed so it makes it really easy to swap drives in and out. The drive doors are really easy to operate and are strong enough so they won’t pull off if you put pressure on them.
There really is nothing I can say bad about the Max 4, it makes it easy to install 2.5-inch drives in your system. I will most likely be using the Max 4 to test solid state drive from now on because it makes it so easy. Right now the Max 4 sells for around $40, which is about $10 more than I would expect to pay for something like this, but still isn’t a bad price. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Thermaltake Max 4 2.5-inch Hard Drive Rack a 9 out of 10 score.
- Easy to install
- Tool-less hard drive installation
- Solid design
- A little more expensive than expected
