Vantec NexStar 3i Hard Drive Enclsoure

Top ImageVantec has added another member to the NexStar 360 lineup. The 3i boasts some things that we have not seen from Vantec in their many ages in the industry. In the past year or so we have seen motherboards feature energy efficiency, now we have it in hard drive enclosures. The 3i has an integrated controller that can regulate power to the drive resulting in less power consumption, less noise and longer drive life. Adding the real reason why  we buy hard drive enclosures, which is for data storage, the new Vantec housing may be worth taking a look at.

 

Assembling

There isn’t much to do to put that 3i together. Once the two parts are seperated, it is a matter of sliding the drive in the metal up to the point it attachs firmly to the SATA/power connector. Before closing the unit back up, you must connect the three pin plug to achieve LED readings.
