First Impressions

After rescuing the unit from its substantial micro-cellular foam packaging, I was taken back by just how beefy and robust the unit seemed. I like well built stuff and I’m sure you do too.

The hot swap trays that you use to mount your hard drives of choice were definitely precision pieces. They came encased in their own micro-cellular prison and were spaced even apart to prevent damage in shipping. Each one was identical and there were no manufacturing anomalies to speak of. The front of each unit houses the quick release latch which is attached to a very strong spring. I’ve noticed in the past with some hot swap trays that had weak springs, they would no longer eject after leaving them in service for a long time. This strong spring ensures that when it comes time to swap out that bad drive, you’ll have a bay that will actually eject. Important don’t you think?

The “H” in the T4H CR’s name is for the aluminum handle that sits atop the unit. The handle is sturdy and doesn’t wiggle when provoked, making it ideal for carrying around the unit from place to place.

Enhance Technology has fitted the T4H CR with an LED control panel. This control panel gives you the 411 on your array and assists you in setting up the array to your needs. Buttons underneath it allow you to toggle through its various screens.

Moving to the back, we see the T4H CR’s impressive array of connectivity options, making this unit work with pretty much any system you can think of, be it Mac, PC, or other. You get two Firewire 800 ports so that you can daisy chain another device in if you wish. I still can’t figure out why they would use a Serial Port for firmware updates. I can’t remember the last system I built with a serial port. This is also where you find the main power switch and the main power connector.

The T4H CR also has an 80mm fan on the back that supplies a constant stream of air to the drives and the components. This unit is easy to remove via two thumb screws to aid in cleaning or replacement.
