Need more space? Is your new hard drive burning up your old enclosure? Try the new HornetTek Goliath! The Goliath has been designed with a built in 80mm fan with extra ventilation surrounding the enclosure. Generating air intake from the side panel while pushing air out the front and back panel ensures the drive is kept cool. This is a key feature in extending the life of your hard drive.

The Goliath is also made of rigid aluminum and sports a metal tray, universally supporting all 3.5” SATA I/II/III Hard Disk Drives. While conventional e-SATA interfaces offer speeds up to 3Gb/s, USB 3.0 delivers transfer rates up to 5Gb/s, allowing you to work faster and more efficient. Fast, cool, and backwards compatible with USB1.1 and USB2.0, the Goliath is also compact, making it the best companion for your desktop and laptops.

  • newegg USB 3.0 Interface SuperSpeed USB 3.0 delivers up to 5Gbps bandwidth which is around 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB 2.0, allowing for ultra-fast transfers of high definition movies and videos, as well as various other large capacity file formats. USB 3.0 is also Plug and Play and backward compatible with USB 2.0 components.
  • newegg Excellent Cooling The HornetTek Goliath has an internal 80mm fan and extra ventilation to keep your hard drive cool. The fan can be turned off/on via the power switch.
  • newegg Universal Fitting for 3.5” SATA HDD The HornetTek Goliath is compatible with one 3.5", up to 2TB SATA I/II/III hard drive, offering an ideal solution for your portable storage needs.

2 out of 5 eggsDied

Pros: Sleek looking, great performance(when it was working), cooling fan is silent.

Cons: After about 3 mos of ownership, the enclosure appears to have died. I verified it was not the drive by testing it in a different enclosure. Works fine.

It still lights up, fan works, even makes the noise when Windows detects a USB device, but no drive shows up.

Other Thoughts: Not sure what happened. Probably too late for a return. Oh well, lesson learned.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: Quiet fan. Works well with USB 3 an 2 ports. Works with WD 2TB 64mb cache drives and smaller ones too. Fan looks like it can be replaced if needed, it has quick dis-connect cables to the case's board inside. HD installs easily.

Cons: Slightly short USB 3 cable (compared to other USB3 cases I have). Book type design doesn't allow case to be stacked one on top of another (fan would be blocked, so it's expected).

Other Thoughts: If you're concerned about heat issues with WD black drives or others, use this case. It's fan will aid in cooling. I have 2 of these cases and I run them (writing files to them) for several days at a time without any issues.

Pricey, but other USB3 cases can also be high too, and those are without fans.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat external USB 3.0

Pros: Great Quality. Really nice aluminium finish. Included fan. Just overall great

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are in the market for a USB 2.0/3.0 you should definitley consider this one. It is really nice quality.
