Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
GlobalWin SAK 38 Review - GlobalWin SAK 38 Review
Tue, February 12 2002 | 10:44AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Mikhailtech checks out the GlobalWin SAK 38 hsf. It's certainly big! Take a look at what Mikhail thinks here.

The clip is another story altogether. For once Globalwin really surprised me. This 3-prong design is very effective for various reasons. First off, it prevents shifting during installation, therefore reducing the risk of a cracked core, regardless of whether or not you have a shim. Secondly, if one of your socket's tabs breaks (and this has happened more than you think) there are two more to compensate. Finally, when moving the computer around the heatsink won't shift from side to side, once again insuring safety. Instead of implementing a finger-friendly attaching mechanism, Globalwin remained with their screwdriver idea, only this time it's a lot easy and much less nerve-wracking. I was still petrified when I heard a snap upon the final push though; good thing it wasn't my core.
