As a part of keeping up with the most current technology, Thermaltake has been busy implementing USB 3.0 functionality into their product lines. To update their external hard drive enclosure products, they released the Max 5G series which is a USB 3.0 compatible version of their existing Max line. This line not only includes support for SuperSpeed USB, but it also features active cooling in order to keep your hard drive cool and potentially extend its life.
