Thermaltake BlacX Duet Hard Drive Docking Station Review

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980Ti G1 Gaming

Article Index

I don’t make a habit of carrying two hard drives with me everywhere I go but, at times, I wish I did have some type of peripheral that allowed me to use, or even test, multiple hard drives at once. It seems that I am constantly asked (no matter where I am), can you look at my computer, there is something wrong with it. This is where the convenience of having a portable, hot swappable, external docking station comes in handy. Up until a few months ago, docking stations were only built for single HDD use.

 

Thermaltake has recently taken their BlacX HDD docking station back to the drawing board and gave it an upgrade.  The Thermaltake BlacX Duet offers the convenience of utilizing two hard drives at one time, via USB or eSATA, and is compatible with all 2.5” and 3.5” SATA hard drives up to 2TB. The BlacX Duet is also hot swappable for easy switching between hard drives, if you require the use of multiple hard drives. Since the BlacX Duet doesn’t require any software to install there is no need to carry around extra CDs that eventually get lost.

 

The Thermaltake BlacX Duet comes with a three year warranty and is constructed of durable plastic. The BlacX is compatible with Mac OS as well as Windows. Estimated transfer rates via eSATA are up to 3.0 Gbps and via USB, 480 Mbps.
