Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Until now there has been nothing like the Thermaltake BlacX that I am aware of. To call it a SATA to USB enclosure or portable hard drive is a stretch since it is more like a docking station than anything else.
As stated previously, the version we are testing today is the USB only model. USB 2.0 has a theoretical limit of 480 Mbps so don't expect your SATA or SATA II hard drive to run at full transfer speeds when using a USB interface.
It should be pointed out that all three versions of the BlacX can use 3.5-inch standard desktop hard drives and 2.5-inch notebook drives. SAS drives are a no go, but since the BlacX is a consumer based product we can let that slide.
The BlacX is small; less than six inches wide and without a drive installed is only 3.5 inches tall. The device fits well on a desk taking up very little room, and the rubber nonslip feet on the bottom keep it from sliding around.
The USB only version of the BlacX has an MSRP of 59.99 US Dollars, but Newegg is already selling the drive for less than 40 US Dollars.
