After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
The Thermaltake BlacX really deserves no introduction, the device has been around for years now and most anyone that needed one already has one.
So what makes the BlacX 5G different? In a word, USB3.
In this review we will be looking at the latest edition to the BlacX line up called the BlacX 5G. In outward appearance this dock is virtually identical to the previous editions; it still accepts 3.5" and 2.5" SATA hard drives, it sits on your desk, has a power switch, and requires external power.
In the box you will find everything you need to get started including a well built USB3 cable and required power source. The installation guide comes in several languages, and covers all of the major details required to fully install the device.
