Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Looking at the specifications for the BlacX SE, I get a little dejà vu since they are so similar to the other BlacX. The biggest difference between the two as far as specifications are concerned is the size and addition of the four USB 2.0 ports.
Although the specs list on Thermaltake's site show the two versions of the BlacX as being the same size, this is a misprint. The BlacX SE has a circular base that is about an inch and a quarter larger than a standard CD.
Along the bottom front of the SE is the four port USB hub, and this is what makes the SE unique to the other BlacX versions that are currently on the market.
The Thermaltake BlacX SE can handle all SATA drives up to 1TB is size. This includes both SATA I and SATA II as well as 3.5 inch standard desktop and 2.5 inch notebook drives. The SE also has a cover that secures the drive into the enclosure. Since you will be connecting and disconnecting devices into the USB hub, it is important to secure the drive with the cover so you do not accidently knock the drive out of the base.
Thermaltake lists the MSRP of the BlacX SE at 69.99, but after a search on Pricegrabber I was able to find this version for 57.00 Dollars shipped (41.99 before shipping). This is in the same ball park as the BlacX we recently reviewed, so if you can handle the extra size of the SE it would be better to go ahead and get the USB hub SE version for just a couple of dollars more.
