The new Thermaltake Muse enclosure is definately a great looking enclosure. It breaks free from the more typical black enclosures found on the market which may fit better with your computers color scheme. Thermaltake has also kept the design very "edgy" and boxy and has tried to stay away from curviture which I believe gives the drive a very distinct, professional look. One thing you may notice on the drive right away is the blue analog style gauge on the side of the enclosure. This gauge supposedly measures and displays the data transfer rate of the drive as it's being accessed but we'll talk more about this later in the review.
From what I've gathered recently it seems that silver is becoming a hugely popular choice for computers. That makes this drive the perfect companion for your newly assembled silver-case computer. However if you have a black computer this drive still looks great with it as black and silver go together very well. All in all Thermaltake did a great design job here and has not tried to make the enclosure to flashy or "space-aged" which will make it appeal to a much larger audience.
Now let's see how she performs...
