The goddesses are considered the source of knowledge that became the representatives of poetry, the arts and science, and sources of inspiration. Thermaltake, carring the corporate mission of “delivering the perfect user experience”,has insight into the importance and the power of knowledge, thus specially developed the Muse 5G series in a high quality aluminum housing to provide a better heat dissipation as well as an elegant look like the goddesses we all have imagined.

Thermaltake Muse Series was first introduced back in 2005 during the explosion of digital data period when users own more HDDs than ever before. The Muse Series was developed to aid users in managing the source of knowledge and inspiration.

In order to keep up with the rapid increase and changes, Thermaltake incorporated the USB 3.0 to maximize the transfer rate, plug & play to reduce the hustles of installation, and LED light indicator on the new Muse 5G series to bring out a better source management.

Thermaltake Muse 5G series includes a 2.5” for SATA HDD & SSD drives up to 12.5mm thickness and a 3.5” that supports SATA I/II/III technology hard drives. Guarding your uninterrupted flow of knowledge, Thermaltake Muse 5G series is absolutely your best work company.

Who writes this drivel? Who approves it for PR release?
If you remove all the worthless verbage it's one sentence of specs.

and LED light indicator on the new Muse 5G series to bring out a better source management

I guess I never imagined a goddess to look like a square aluminum box. Am I alone on this?

Okay ... the PR was so bad it made me rant ... my apologies

It looks like a nice, solidly built external enclosure with nice USB3 and SATA3 specs.
I do like TT's stuff as my case and PSU have servered me excellently over the years, but they really need to get better writers for their promotions.
