Thermaltake has several storage solutions in their arsenal along with some new products coming out very soon.


The idea behind this product is genius and I am not sure why someone else hasn't thought of this yet. The BlacX is a hot swappable docking station for 3.5" and 2.5" hard drives. Those with multiple hard drives that aren't mounted in your case find that it isn't cost efficient to buy several external hard drive enclosures and often just swap them out manually, placing the drive on the floor of their case. Users in this situation will really appreciate this product. It reminds me of my iPhone dock and I can totally see this being an excellent product. Look for the BlacX to hit retail stores next week with an MSRP of $39.99.


Thermaltake has a huge selection of power supplies in their Toughpower, Purepower and TR2 product lines, most of which were on display. The Toughpower line ranges from 500w all the way up to 2000w! The Purepower line has units in the 450w to 600w range while the TR2 series ranges from 300w to 1000w.


Moving along to cases, Thermaltake has branched out into the HTPC market as well. The two cases on top are the new DH 301 series, which support the AMD Maui platform. On the bottom left is the DH 101 and the DH 102 is on the right, both of which are currently available on Thermaltake's website.
