Thermaltake BlacX 5G HDD Docking Station


As school is quickly approaching around the corner, parents help their kids prepare by dropping by the local store to pick up some school supplies. I'm sure most older students are much more independent and motivated to do this without the aid of...

Thermaltake Blac X 5G


How many of you have a spare HDD laying around because all of the SATA ports on your motherboard are full? I am betting that the majority of you raised your hand. There are many solutions that would allow you to put that HDD to use, and today we are...

Smaller than most 3.5" external HDD enclosures ; USB 3.0 ; Sleek styling ; Cheap ($50 at ; Silicone Jackets to protect from HDD movement

Blue USB 3.0 Cable (Why can't we move to black already?)

When I reviewed the Thermaltake Blac X Duet over a year ago I was very impressed. I used the Duet daily to backup files, and migrate files from one pc to another. The one thing that always bugged me was the transfer times. Sure it had an eSATA port but...

Thermaltake BlacX 5G HDD Docking Station Review


It's hard to believe, but the year is almost over. So much has transpired in the world of PCs within the past year. Quad core is pretty much mainstream now and manufacturers are continuing to release more and more cores. DX11 is taking off and changing...

Thermaltake Blac X 5g - Review


Very recently we had opportunity to review one of the Blac X units, Blac X Duet. We were so impressed by its simplicity that we gave it a 10/10. A truly magnificent product. About 4 month later Thermaltake has released a new member of Blac X units,...

Easy to use and very efficient ; Stylish and durable ; USB 3.0 support ; Supports 6GB/s SATA III

Only USB 3.0 connection ;

Just like previous Blac X, Blac X 5G continues to make everyone lives easier and faster. I really cannot comment anything negative about this unit as it does what it was promised to. It is rather simple device however, it has a lot to offer to every...

Thermaltake BlacX 5G HDD Docking Station


It's probably clear by now that USB 3.0 is one of the best things to happen to external storage, but when it comes to choosing between the available docks and enclosures, it's tough. One of the best options might be Thermaltake's latest entry to its...

If there's one thing that doesn't exist today with regards to PC components, it's selection. In the case of some product types, that selection could almost be considered overkill, with what might seem like a thousand companies offering near-identical...
