As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift last weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0".  I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.  

But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!!  Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...

The fifth set of prizes is a pair of Thermaltake Max 5G USB 3.0 external hard drive enclosures!

View Full Size

It has lights, it has fans AND it runs at USB 3.0 speeds.  What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?

Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Thermaltake for its sponsorship of PC Perspective as well as your plans for using such a cool USB 3.0 external drive dock.  What other features would you like to see on external enclosures like this? 

You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!

We will pick the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices.  Good luck and thanks for reading!!

Thanks Thermaltake
I would hook it up and move some VMs over to it for extra performance vs running them all off a single HD

Thanks Thermaltake! for sponsoring PCPer. Are those fans, I hope it's not cuz it needs that much cooling these days.

Thank you Thermal take for sponsoring PCPer. Never too late to get a good backup of my system and why not do it in style. New features might be an easy way to back up data wirelessly from smartphones since they hold up to 40GB.

Thank you Thermaltake (Tt) for your continued support and sponsorship of PC Perspectives. I'd probably use the enclosure for backup support or a reading lamp=P.

Thermaltake rocks. Recently built a computer with a V3 and the case is really nice. Great of them to sponsor PCPer.

Thanks Thermaltake, for sponsoring a pretty rad site.

I would use this to transfer media between my desktop (loaded with 5 hdds and over 4tb of content), to my new laptop. As I recently discovered, 802.11g just does not cut it.

Thank you Thermaltake for sponsoring PC Perspective. I'd use this for a backup drive. It would be nice to also have networking built into this.

I've got a motherboard with a USB 3.0 connection and I've never used it. I've also got a ton of hard drives strewn about my desk. This would be perfect for me.

Thanks for supporting pcper, thermaltake. And keep up the great podcasts, Ryan.

Thanks Thermaltake for supporting PC Perspective! I would add this drive to my open-air Lego desktop...think it would fit right in! I would like to see a display for fan speeds/drive temp/transfer rate.

Thank you Thermaltake for sponsoring PC Perspective. I will use the external enclosure to make a super backup system with lights.

Thanks to thermaltake for supporting pcper! Usb3 speeds means I'd probably use the drive for media storage. Thanks again to both pcper and thermaltake.

Thanks Thermaltake and PCPer. The enclosure needs a clock and room temperature display. Easy to glance at when it's sitting on your desk.
