Triton experience
by pablocasal / April 7, 2006 2:35 PM PDT

The Triton does not have a fan and it does get hot so I never leave it on. Had it for about a year now and now the first time I left it on overnight the hard drive was dead.

Lots to choose choice is ADAPTEC
by VAPCMD / April 8, 2006 5:16 AM PDT

because of their experience in the PC peripheral business and they handle HDDs up to 1,000GBs. I've got 2 ACS-100 (with WD320GB HDDs) and 1 ACS 100 (with Seagate 100GB notebook HDD).

The Adaptec ACS-100 (3.5" USB 2.0), ACS-120 (2.5", USB 2.0), and ACS-200 (3.5" USB 2.0 and Firewire).

Gimme a shout if you any questions.

Newegg has a lot to choose from they have better than average product info. Last time I looked, had the lowest price for the Adaptec enclosures.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
