As this is one of the few enclosures that are available in UK, is is still a good buy now in August 2018? are there are reasons one should not ie old buggy firmware/drivers/limited bandwidth due to other ports etc. I'd be using it with a mac, probably rip out that cage and upgrade the PSU and use with Vega 64.

Just got this for my mini2012 (tb1/2-cable & tb3-2-tb1/2-adapter).
And it seems dead.
When plugging power cord, one red led blink and front fan spins for a second.
Mac sees nothing.
Is it really so, that for firmware update, you need a specific hp model with tb port?
omg...

I bought this Omen to be used with my mac mini 2012.
Has anybody succesfully connected Omen to TB1 or TB2 port?
My mac does not see Omen at all, not macos, not win10.

I replaced the fan of the hp omen accelerator with the NF-F12 iPPC-3000 PWM and used this Noctua NA-FC1 4-pin PWM Fan Controller to control the speed. Worked like a charm but it wasnt an easy process. I had to cut some cables from the previous fan and used the connector on a custom cable.

Hi guys, I was wondering if it's possible to install windows directly on the ssd inside the Omen Accelerator, I only have a 128GB 2017 Macbook Pro and storage in my case is an issue, any help would be greatly appreciated

Could provide some short instructions on how you did that?

Hi, I bought an HP Omen Accelerator. The fact is that I have tried it on a friend's computer and it works and it is in the latest version, but it does not work for me. Macbook Pro 2012, with TH3-> TH2 adapter.
How to make it work?
Thank you!

Same here with a MBP 2011... i bought a used one on amazon, 200€... not a bid deal on my side, it is to be put in an other place, then will be used with my TB3 MBP... but very strange ?

MBP 2018, Touch Bar, i7 2.6 GHz, 32 GB RAM, 1T SSD, Radeon 560X... very nice!

Hi all
Will this egpu detected without GPU installed?
I try to connect this Omen to HP Spectre af079tu (non-convertible) without GPU installed, but it's not detected. I've try to update thunderbolt driver to latest one from HP support page, update firmware, install HP Omen Accelarator app, but no luck. The egpu isn't detected.
Any suggestions? 

MBP 2016 13" TB

the enclosure is detected properly without a card on my Dell laptops just fine. I used LAN and USB hubs, and even though I didn't try I'm sure you could use the SATA too.
