Thermaltake has been involved in the computer hardware business for a very long time. Although they are better known for their power supplies, computer cases and CPU coolers, Thermaltake has made progress in their line-up of storage devices. Of their most recent storage devices is the BlacX hard drive docking station. With such a product, Thermaltake hopes to fill niche left between external hard drive enclosures and internal hot swap racks. Indeed, the BlacX integrates the two main features of these devices: the ease of use of hot swap racks, and the portability and accessibility of external enclosures.

As a dock, the BlacX’s selling point would be how it hard drives can be quickly accessed or removed. For those who have many hard drives on hand, this would seem to be the perfect product to juggle across their collection. The BlacX is even more attractive for those that troubleshoot and backup hard drives. Of the three models present in the BlacX series, the BlacX with USB 2.0 and eSATA support (product number ST0005U) will be examined in the following pages.
