The In Win Na is one of the most unique enclosures I have seen. Unlike the usual industrial "tough" looking enclosures on the market, the Na is more of a peaceful one that brings harmony to the table. Performance was also where it should be, both for USB and eSATA connectivity. I was fond of the small 6cm fan that was included with the enclosure. Throughout the course of testing and loading of the 1TB hard drive, the included fan did a good job of keeping it relatively cool with temperatures in the range of 37 degrees Celsius. One downside to the enclosure was the material used. It felt as if thought it could break a little too easily. Perhaps it wouldn't be the most ideal enclosure for the traveller or gamer, but nonetheless it's nothing to be scared of for the average Joe. Another problem I did encounter, was the eSATA cable, as it was just a tad too short for my liking compared to the USB cable.
Overall, the In Win Na is a different enclosure that is sure to catch the eyes of family or friends. It offers excellent performance and also does a great job in keeping a hard drive well cooled.
