Thermaltake BlacX SATA to USB HDD Dock - The Thermaltake BlacX USB

Do you regularly need to access bare HDDs in a clean effortless manner? The BlacX (USB 2.0 version) may be your answer.

The Thermaltake BlacX USB

 

 

Head on from the front, we can see the small drive eject button along the top leading edge of the BlacX.

 

 

From the side the BlacX has just a little bit of an angle to the top of it. When a drive is installed it fits straight up and down.

 

 

The back is where the power button, USB and power plug is. I would have liked to have seen the power button placed somewhere in front to make it easier to reach.

 

 

There is not a lot going on with this side either.

 

 

From the top we see the door that folds down when a 3.5 inch drive is installed. After just two drives were inserted the door already appears to have a couple of small scratches on it. The drive eject button is located in the middle and the oval button looking piece on the right side is actually a status LED. This would have been a great place for a power button.

 

 

The BlacX with a Western Digital Raptor 150GB installed; I now wish I had bought a case of the windowed version instead of the solid cover drives.
