Unlike competing enclosures, Shell employs active smart cooling. This ensures you can push your SSD to the max, and not have to worry about it overheating – the most common cause of SSD malfunction. (Fan only switches ON when needed - once SSD is cooled down it switches OFF. This ensures quiet operation of Shell Thunder enclosure)

Really nice to find a solidly built piece of kit that works faultlessly this will be with me for many years
Works great, but do be aware of potential compatibility issues with some drives. My Crucial P2 is just fine, my Samsung Evo 970, not so much. Minor niggle in that the green LED for the logo eye doesn't show on mine for whatever reason. Doesn't stop it from doing what it's supposed to, but missing bling is a minor disappointment
