The Thermaltake BlacX Duet

One of the features we like most about Thermaltake's latest BlacX product line is the power button located on the front of the docking station. Previous models had the power button on the back and it was sort of a pain to reach around to turn the system on and off before adding or removing a drive. For the Duet, though, we kind of wish there were two power buttons; one for each drive.

The top of the docking station is where most of the action is. Here we see the dual HDD mounting locations that can each accept either 2.5 or 3.5" SATA drives. Each side gets its own eject button.

The BlacX Duet is sloped at the top to make it easier to add drives while the dock is sitting on your desk.

The back has three familiar ports; USB 2.0, eSATA and a spot for power.

On the bottom we found four rubber pads that keep the BlacX from moving on your desk.
