Thermaltake this year had a great display of their products as usual, including some of the top items to date, as well as some new ones that intrigued us. The biggest display that caught our eyes when we entered their suite was the setup on the middle table of two systems showing off the power of their USB 3.0 BlackX docks. During the demonstration they successfully showed us the power of the USB 3.0 interface, with a 1GB file transfer test which yielded an 8 second transfer time for the dock running on USB 3.0 and 34 seconds for the one running at USB 2.0 speeds. A group transfer of 2,184 files took only 22 seconds versus 53 seconds on the USB 2.0 interface. Thermaltake also had some other USB 3.0 enclosures around the test beds to show they are ready for the new standard.
Thermaltake also had some items from their Luxa2 line on display, including their popular H1 phone holders in multiple colors, some other designs and even notebook coolers and stands that are made to look distinct while keeping your equipment cool and secure. Another Luxa2 product which was a pleasure to see is a HTPC case design that adds style to your build.
Wrapping up at the Thermaltake suite we had a look at their power supplies, including the new aesthetically pleasing Toughpower Grand series, which takes the old boxy look of traditional power supplies and makes the design look more futuristic and more in keeping with the cases of today. When looks and power are everything the Grand series makes this happen. On display there were also the Toughpower XT and the TR2 RX series.
