Vantec NexStar CX SuperSpeed 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Nice aluminum case, just what we've come to expect from Vantec.

The price is right for an external enclosure.

USB 3.0 gives good speeds, with one big exception (see Cons below)

Cons: It requires (2) USB plugs, and (on my system, at least) only operates at full speed on the Motherboard USB3 ports. I can only see USB2 speed off the front USB3 ports of my computer.

Case fit from the manufacturer is poor. The HDD carriage wants to hang up approximately 3/4 inch before full insertion into the case (resolved, see comments below).

Other Thoughts: Vantec for some reason put (2) stick-on pads inside the case, located in the front of the case. The drive carriage hits these two pads and doesn't want to ride up and over them. If you peel away the mirror strip on the front of the case, you can take out the (2) screws holding the front of the case, and with a razor knife you can remove those (2) pads. The HDD carriage will then slide fully into the case with no binding.

Cons: None at all.

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe Federal & State 2013 For Windows - Download
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None so far

Cons: The code guys need to go back to work on this version.

Other Thoughts: Definitely not ready for prime time. Installs but will not run, and I've tried it with 2 different machines: (Win 7 Pro x64) and (Win 7 Pro 32). So far TT tech support has been a bust...
