Form and function combine in the Vantec NexStar 3 drive enclosure. Turn a standard 3.5-inch Serial ATA hard drive up to 3TB in size into an external USB 2.0-and-eSATA storage device. The sturdy drive cage protects your hard drive while the aluminum case effectively draws away the heat, protecting your drive from overheating.
The NexStar 3 features eSATA (external Serial ATA) and USB 2.0 interfaces offering speeds up to 3Gbps or 480Mbits per second, respectively. This flexibility allows you to use your hard drive at its full performance where eSATA is available and still have the option of using USB where it's not. The drive is hot swappable, letting you plug and unplug the unit without needing to reboot. An attractive blue LED lets you know you have power and when the hard drive is actively working.
The drive can lie horizontally or stand vertically, and is powered by a bundled power adapter. In the package you'll find a driver disc, user manual, the enclosure, eSATA and USB cables, a SATA-to-eSATA bracket, along with the power adapter and stand. The NexStar 3 is a great way to store and transfer data in style!
