Thermaltake BlacX 5G USB 3.0 HDD Docking Station

The Thermaltake BlacX 5G




The meat of the package consists of the main components to the system, the dock itself, a power brick and the USB 3.0 cable. Thermaltake included a longer cable than what came with the ineo and MUKii docking stations, something we complained about those products for lacking. The longer cable will allow you to pull your computer out from under a desk and not need to disconnect the docking station before doing so.




Here we get our first look at the dock itself. The BlacX 5G logo is right on the front and as you can see the power button, a very important feature to include, is at the top.




A top down look shows with more detail the power button that lights up when the docking station is turned on. There is also a hard drive mechanical Eject button on the top and of course you plug your 2.5 or 3.5" HDD into the top of the docking station.




The side view shows that the BlacX 5G has a slanted top. This makes it easier to install a hard drive into the dock.




The back of the BlacX 5G is simple enough. There are only two connections; one for power and the other for USB 3.0.
