Last week we took a close look at the Thermaltake BlacX (USB Version) and found it to be a product that many enthusiasts will not be able to live without. Thermaltake has three versions of the BlacX; USB, USB + eSATA and finally a feature rich version called the BlacX SE. The BlacX SE is for users that want to optimize every product on their desk. Convergence is key when you only have limited space.
The Thermaltake BlacX SE has everything the BlacX (USB) that we reviewed last week has, but it adds an extra feature; an integrated USB 2.0 hub. The SE version sits a little taller than the other variants and has a wider base, but the size difference isn't something you are going to notice since it is such a small amount.
We found on the previous review of the BlacX that transfer speeds were hindered due to the USB interface, and the SE version is going to suffer the same. When using the USB hub, transfer speeds will be reduced even more. Let's have a look to see what kind of performance we are looking at and if sticking to the standard BlacX is a better option.
