2.5" hard drives are getting more capacity all the time, so there's no need for you to carry a big external drive around. The NexStar CX from Vantec is smaller than a paperback book and slips easily into a pocket or purse for portability. A carrying case keeps the metallic black finish from scratching.

This USB 2.0 enclosure holds an 2.5" SATA drive for high speed operation. During operation the aluminum housing works as a heat sink to keep the drive cool and extend its life. USB powers the drive, so there's no need to carry power cables with you. A USB cable with pass through port is included so you don't lose a port when connecting your drive. Since it's a USB drive it makes it easy to transfer data between PCs and Macs.

  • newegg 2.5” SATA HDD Compatibility The Vantec NexStar CX NST-200S2-BK enclosure is compatible with 2.5" SATA hard drives, offering an ideal solution for your ever-increasing storage needs.
  • newegg Aluminum Enclosure The stylish, sturdy aluminum enclosure provides excellent heat dissipation and tough, reliable hard drive protection. And its slim pocket design makes it convenient to be carried with you.
  • newegg USB 2.0 Interface The Vantec NexStar CX NST-200S2-BK features a USB 2.0 interface for fast data transfer speeds of up to 480Mbps and plug-and-play connectivity.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best Investment You Can Ever Make!

Pros: Cheap, faster than an external hard drive, looks real slick, love the fact that its so easy to assemble and so much more that u have to try it out for yourself!

Cons: None so far (^_^)

Other Thoughts: Its top notch and works great! I love it and would definitely recommend anyone out there to get it and not hesitate! I was kind of skeptical at first wondering if it would be good or not coz it was quite cheap and i kept thinking if it would work well or be a waste of my time-effort & money... But after i ordered it-it came in the mail within a few days-quite fast i must say!) its easy to assemble and really easy to install the hard drive-all u gotta do is put the screws in place right-plug in the usb cable-and its working better than an external hard drive that will cost over a hundred dollars!
I would definately recommend this to anyone out there!

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't include carrying case or USB pass through port

Pros: Functional
Sturdy metal enclosure

Cons: Does not include a USB pass through port or a carrying case like the description suggests. It uses two usb ports, which would be ok if had a pass through port, but it's hogging up precious real estate.

Other Thoughts: The blue light is kinda cool I guess, but it tends to be blinding when you're in a slightly darkened room.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Enclosure

Pros: I have a few of these enclosures and they are perfect if you have an extra drive lying around that you'd like to use. I really like the price and feature(s) that NexStar offers. Great enclosures all around... 5 Stars!

5 out of 5 eggsNice case

Pros: Perfect for a laptop drive to make a backup hard drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use a WD Black 500G hard drive with this and have a great backup system for my computers. Plug it in and run a backup. Done.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Enclosure Except

Pros: Solid case
Drive mount and electronics end cap solid
Worked out of the box

Cons: The connector isn't the micro-usb connector that quality external 2.5" drive enclosures are sporting these day. It's a full size USB 2.0 connector. The proof is the 'what's in the box' photograph. It works but requires a cable with full sized USB connectors on both ends. Deducting a star for that. I didn't want to be carrying another cable with me.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic enclosure

Pros: Good sturdy pcb
Regular USB cable instead of micro usb
Metal plate to screw the hard drive to (keeps the drive fixed rather than dangling from the SATA connector)
Full aluminum body

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It is a decent upgrade over the Nextar TX, which lacks tha backplate.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

Pros: Works perfectly. Zero complaints.

Cons: The only reason I give this product 4, not 5, stars is because the blue light on it that blinks and lights up when the HDD is spinning is so bright it could be used to signal deep space, or light up the atlantic for the Titanic, shoot if Paul Revere had one he'd have signaled that the red coats were coming with this light! All jokes aside, its just way to bright for a HDD light, but a lil electrical tape fixed that.
