Quiet is the main design factor of our engineering team, and the eBOX-U intakes cool air from the front and forward left and right panels. This intake of cool air will be funnelled to the back of this enclosure where the 12cm exhaust fan will push this hot air to the out side, which creates a high thermal exchange ratio bettwen cool air and the HDDs. Thank to the BIG 12 cm fan, the same high amount of CFM is being pushed out the chassis but without noise being created.

With our specially designed leveler, any EIGHT 3.5" HDD (no size limitation) devices can be easily, quickly and reliably converted to plug-and-play without resources to conventional HDD tray. This feature allows end users to replace HDD within seconds and without tools.

Our eBOX-U offers a unique opportunity for OEM or ODM to continue to take advantage of the low cost IDE/SATAI/II HDD while presenting high performance (480mbps transfer rate), hot plug-able devices into the brand new and expanding USB2.0 of MAC and Window market.
