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 for sponsoring PC Perspective.

Plan on using the enclosure to house a backup drive

Would dig seeing an external display of drive stats.

Once again, you have proven that you are the company that gives back to the community that reveres you so. Well done and Congratulations!

Oh, and thank you for partnering with PC Perspective and giving us readers an opportunity to join in a contest like this.

If I was to obtain an enclosure like that, I will definitely use it for my daily backups. Currently, my external backups are done via USB 2.0, and as you can imagine it seriously slows down the pc. However, with a USB 3.0 enabled enclosure, lets just say I'll be able to minimize the time taken for backups and be able to use my PC with minimum distractions :)

As for what other features I'd like to add, you can't quite fix perfection, but if I was really finicky, I'd like a small wedge lever I can pull which pushes a small flap that will push out dust particles that are bound to get sucked between the fan grill :))

A big thank you to Thermaltake for sponsoring PC Perspective. I would use it to store all my important files, data, music, videos, etc. LED display showing drive capacity would be nice.

It would replace my blacX duet, which is only usb2.0
I would still use the toaster, just not as much.
Tt products have served me well. case psu docks, etc...

Thanks Thermaltake.

Thanks Thermaltake for supporting PCPER. I love the PCPER podcast. Josh always finds a way to crack me up! I would use this to move large tv shows from my htpc to my editing machine. USB 3.0 would be much faster than my wireless network. How about a docking system so the unit can be plugged into multiple machine by only moving the case? USB 3.0 is the most important, though...

Thank you Thermaltake for the awesome sponsorship!, i would definitely love this to cool my 1TB drive as it runs a little hot, would also love the USB 3.0 speed boost =)

Thanks to Thermaltake for being a sponsor of PC Per.

I would use this for a backup drive. I know it's kind of lame, but the speed is so enticing.
