Is it a fairly quite enclosure? I didnt see any mentions about Noise levels. Also, not too shabby, I suspect it cools rather nicely, however I dont see how one measures transfer and read speeds with an enclosure. One last sour note, thats alot of cpu utilization (even if its a small amount)
I didn't include any numbers on the noise level, as I felt the drive used would play more of a part in the noise level than the fan. TBH, the fan was very quiet, and in my case the WD Raptor was much louder than the fan.
As for transfer and read speed testing, HD Tach and SANDRA will test removable drives. Just download and install the software, then choose the drive from the drop-down list.
On the note of CPU utlization, it was very hard to say for sure, since the numbers were not consistant. Out of the five times that I ran the test, I had 0%, 7%, 8%, 15% and 18%. The average would be 9.6%.
