Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It is small, silent, and still cools the hard drive passively (the entire case is a heatsink). USB 3.0 means a fast throughput.

This is everything that the "toaster" style adapters aren't.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: This is not an adapter that is designed for swapping drives in and out. That should be obvious just by looking at the product description. This is designed to have a single (previously) internal drive mounted into it.

3 out of 5 eggs It works most of the time, the fan is annoying 07/02/2010

This review is from: SIIG SC-SA0D12-S1 2.5" & 3.5" Black SATA II USB 3.0 Drive Docking with Fan

Pros: It works most of the time, USB 3.0 speeds means it's really not any noticeably slower than when my drive was used internally.

Cons: Occasionally the fan doesn't quite spin up all the way, and the device doesn't register as having been attached to the computer...this has only happened a couple of times however, and a quick turning it off and back on seems to resolve it.

The real con here is that this thing is not only loud, but the sound it makes is ANNOYING. The fan has a constant buzzing noise that drives me up the wall. I've wound up ordering a Vantec Nexstar which is designed to be a giant heatsink and eliminate the need for a fan.

Other Thoughts: People are correct about the Blue LEDs, they are extremely bright, but then all blue LEDs are. Generally I don't notice because I actually keep this device on the floor.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: XMP profile works perfectly, currently running at 7-8-7-24 2T at a little over 1700MHZ, no errors on 5 hour memtest and voltage is only at 1.3 (memory is rated for 1.5). Really outstanding.

Cons: none for me, this stuff is really slick.
