Introduction to the Vantec NexStar CX SuperSpeed Edition
Hard drive enclosures are nothing new. They filled the local electronic store shelves and you can find them sitting next to most PC systems in people’s homes. You hard drive enclosures are just as common as thumb drives are. Obviously, each has an advantage over the other. But after a period of time they become kind of boring and uninteresting. And then came along USB 3.0 or SuperSpeed. This new technology of faster data transfer has renewed our interest in the typical HDD enclosure.
One of the leaders today in HDD enclosure is Vantec. Producing enclosures for laptop drive and desktop, Vantec can be seen everywhere. Vantec was nice enough to recently send over their new NexStar CX model. Unlike the NexStar 3 we reviewed a few months ago, the CX has a simpler look. But it still offers the reliability and quality but not the shiny exterior of the NexStar 3. But one thing they do share is performance based on the new SuperSpeed technology.
