Finally, we have a BlacX to get excited about; the eSATA version is here. Let's see how she performs.

The Thermaltake BlacX (eSATA)

A view from straight off the base shows a BlacX logo on the front. The drive eject button can also be seen here.

From the side we see that the top has an angle, making inserting the drive a little easier.

Ah, the meat and potatoes. Here we see the USB, eSATA, power connector and unfortunately the power button. My only complaint with the BlacX devices is that the power button is on the back of the unit. If you are working in a tight space you have to be careful not to tip the drive over when reaching around to turn the drive on.

The other side is a mirror image of the first side.

The view from the top shows the status light area; the circle on the lower right side. You can also see the eject button and the door that makes inserting 2.5 inch SATA drives a little easier. The door will collapse when inserting a 3.5 inch desktop drive.
