Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock NST-D300S3
3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Apr 13, 2010

THE GOOD: The Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock offers a robust solution to work with internal hard drives. It has a nice and sturdy design and offers very fast throughput speeds with USB 3.0 and is backward compatible with USB 2.0. It supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives. THE BAD: The Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock is rather bulky and doesnt support legacy IDE hard drives. It has no eSATA or FireWire connections, and it doesnt come with a USB 3.0 add-in card. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Vantec NexStar Hard Drive Dock is a good, affordable tool for computer technicians and those who work with internal hard drives.

5 Star Review   By member Master_FOB - Aug 10, 2008   

Strengths: Convenient, fast, looks good.

Weakness: nothing major

I am so glad I found this device. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I have been looking for something like this for quite some time, as I have quite a few large SATA hard drives laying around that I use for storage. This device is fast and convenient. Just remember to plug in the power and SATA cables, then insert the drive, then turn it on. Likewise, eject the drive via "safely remove hardware", turn off the dock, then pop the drive out. A bit of force is needed to insert the drive into the dock, which is a bit more than I'm comfortable with, but I suppose it makes for a secure connection. Also, I can feel that the drives still heat up alot, so some kind of fan would be nice for long uses. I don't use mine for that long, so I'm not too worried. Another thing is when you put the drive in and turn the device on, the PC hangs for 2-3 seconds. I thought it was my device, but I think it's just eSATA, as it happens to my brother's PC when he uses an eSATA enclosure also. Overall, I am extremely happy with this device. Get one, you won't regret it. It was exactly what I needed and was looking for.
