Introduction

Vantec NexStar TX Enclosure and Dual-Bay Dock Review 20 | TweakTown.com

Vantec always seems to keep their product lineup fresh revolving in new technology to replace the old and today that's just what we have.

We have seen many solutions over the years from Vantec's MX, HX, and CX product lines. Today they introduce a TX branding to their portfolio with two enclosures taking care of 2.5" and 3.5" operations and a docking station that too can house both form factors.

In this review, we will check out the performance of the dock and 3.5" enclosure leaving the 2.5" on the shelf since it shares its components and thus performance with the 3.5" solution.

The dock supports both 2.5" and 3.5" HDD and SSDs with a SATA 6Gb/s interface. This is branched out to a standard USB 3.0 Type-B supporting UASP for top performance. The 3.5" enclosure shares much of those specifications including the same Type-B USB 3.0 connection along with UASP support. Both solutions are compatible with Windows 7+ along with OS X 10.6+.

The MSRP of the Vantec NexStar TX 3.5" Enclosure comes in at $21.99 with a one-year warranty, and the MSRP of the Dual Bay NexStar TX Dock comes in at $29.99 with a one-year warranty.

Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
