Hello there,

I love your new eGPU buyer's guide.

Could you pin it near to the implementation table in the top of the website? It is a super important resource for the site I recon.

If I may, I would like to suggest if you could translate the measures of the devices to cm as well as inches for the European users like me. It is not easy for us to read it and understand it without translation.

Please let me tell you that you are doing a really good job for the community and please keep going.

Thank you very much.

* on the top right linked within  Implementations .

Thanks for this chart nando4. I've found it quite useful. Might I suggest adding the weight of each unit in both lb and kg? I feel there must be a subset of users who plan on taking their enclosures with them often and I think it'd be helpful to be able to compare this data point at a glance.

I understand those looking to transport their eGPUs between sites would want to know the eGPU enclosure weight.

As manufacturer’s as not disclosing this, I’ve asked itsage to digitally weigh review units he has so can include this detail in the buyer’s guide.  It’s on the to-do list.

Added to https://egpu.io/external-gpu-buyers-guide-2017/#tb3-enclosures

* shipping weight for TB3 enclosures. This information was more readily available than just the weight of the bare enclosure and will allow relative weight comparison between enclosures

* note that use of TB3 enclosure ports (USB/SATA/Ethernet) impinges on eGPU bandwidth

* A Do-not-buy Thunderbolt3 enclosures list

For TB3 enclosures, added a visual comparison link in the Size item.  Now can size TB3 enclosures against each other.

Thought to bump this thread for feedback instead of making a new one.

@nando4 With the ever growing amount of Thunderbolt 3 enclosures, the scrollbar on the enclosures table will be getting longer, could I suggest having the first column move across with the scroll. It would make it easier to tell what particular spec you're looking at when you're scrolled all the way across.

@attackid, thank you for the feedback.  A locked first column has been attempted but due to formatting losses between it and the non-locked columns, was not implemented.

I’ll mirror the first column as the last in the next revision so have a reference for the scrolled row data until the locked first column formatting issue can be sorted.

One of the most useful page on this site (Best eGPU Enclosures Reviewed – External GPU Buyer’s Guide 2019) is updated really often and this is great! But when I enter on the page I can not understand what has changed... Am I missing something? May I suggest to highlight in some way the modifications? Thank you anyway, this website is awesome

Yeah, I'd second beppedessi's comment about reflecting what has changed. I'll check every so often and sometimes I can't even figure out what was updated. Would be neat if there was a revisions list similar to what you see with a wiki. If not that, at least only reflecting the update date on major changes (like adding a new eGPU) rather than on every change.

@senkwich, changes that occur are:

– new enclosures are marked NEW and added to the far left
– popularity re-shuffles based on builds
– price changes

Changes can be tracked using sites like Visul Ping or an alternative.

Good to know! Thanks! I'll have to check out the site you mentioned later.
