Los Angeles (CA) - With all the expensive products we see and review, it’s pretty refreshing to play with something that doesn’t suck. We recently bought the Thermaltake BlacX hard drive dock for a measly $40 from NewEgg. We didn’t expect much from it, but quickly discovered that this is a must buy for storage fanatics.
Video review of Thermaltake’s BlacX SATA drive dock
The device is amazingly simple, so simple that you have to slap your forehead and think "Why didn’t someone else market this before?" The dock plugs into your USB port and accepts both regular and notebook-sized SATA hard drives. Just dock a drive and you’ll be able to access your data in about 10 seconds after powering up.
The BlacX doesn’t require any drivers and we tested the unit on both PCs and Macs.
