Anyone seen this yet? It actually looks really good. Comes in a single hard drive size and a double size.

The sides look to be hard mounted, but looking at how the included parts are described, it seems that they're fully detachable, meaning that you could fit decouplers or at least rubber grommets in there.

Can anyone read German? I found a review, but Google translate isn't working for some reason... I really want to see if this is any better than the simple rubber decouplers that came with my Zalman hdd cooler.

Here is your translation:
I only translated what seemed important to me.

The next one is from ichbinleise (i'mquiet) :D
It's a dual solution for two hdds.
The ichbinleise box is only ment for dampening and shouldn't be used without extra cooling.
After the process of building which is compared to others kinda challenging it seems to be pretty stable.
The hdds are mounted without vibration and enable easy transportation of the tower.
With it's thick dampening we expect it to be pretty good in noise reduction
build in like this heat will be collecting in there (didn't know how to translate to a real english sentence) :roll:
This box doesn't require any drive bays. The box is taped onto the bottom of the case with doublesided tape. A bitumenmat with both sides with tape on it is included.
Like this there is another division from the case.
The test showed that it was the quietest solution of all tested and it's good for all those who want it as quiet as possible.
The temperature wasn't as high as expected and below the maximum of the hdds. But we recommend some extra cooling if you want to be absolutely sure your hardware isn't damaged.

That was the translation.
:wink:
Let me know if it was helpful.

The verdict: It's not any better than the Zalman I was already using, and it's a complete pain to uninstall (since it uses a very powerful adhesive to stick to the bottom of the case).

Stay away, spcr.
