It's pretty funny how technology progresses, new technology emerges and our jaws hit the floor in awe and wonder, only to have these “new and amazing” technologies become part of our everyday lives six months down the road. First we had USB thumb drives, next came external hard drives. Soon enough, if you upgraded from an old computer, you were also more than likely pulling old hard drives out and keeping them for the data they contained. Now, following suit, many of us now use these wonders to our advantage.

 

Hard drives are where everything on our computers are stored… from programs to music to pictures to your college thesis! With technology advancing so fast, people are switching computer systems out every two to three years, most of the time keeping their old systems. People tend to keep hard drives when old systems are upgraded. This is where HDD Enclosures come into play!

Enter the Vantec Nexstar CX! The Nexstar CX by Vantec is a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) enclosure for 3.5" SATA HDDs. The Nexstar CX comes in three flavors, one is USB 2.0/eSATA for 3.5” HDDs, another is strictly USB 2.0 for 3.5” HDDs and the other is strictly USB 2.0 for the smaller 2.5” HDDs. The patented design of this enclosure allows for maximum noise reduction and fairly decent heat dissipation. Another perk is that the cables are kept to a minimum. The CX can support HDDs up to 2 TB and is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows.
