Thermaltake BlacX Duet 5G USB 3.0 Docking Station Review
As this unit is a dock and supports no RAID features, I thought it would be nice to see how the unit does while transferring data drive to drive both installed in the BlacX. The top mounted LEDs, while shining blue, aren’t so bright that they blind you, but rather just perfect.

Interface Required Connector Type. Over the years hard drive docks or docking stations have really helped in simplifying the way I work, especially when I have years of data backed up on spinners. As far as build quality goes, the BlacX Duet 5G is top tier in my book.
System Requirements OS Required. The top of the dock has a slight brushed appearance brought on by the slice of aluminium Thermaltake has placed here.
Samsung and Qualcomm phone prototypes tease our 5G future But you still have to wait for the real thing. The Thermaltake BlacX 5G is one of these units, while it is no secret that this unit has been on the market for a while now, it was a trend setter when it came to market with several other manufactures taking notes from Thermaltake and releasing similar products bladx after.

Phones by Shara Tibken Dec 5, Over the past few months it’s pretty safe to say I have tested my fair share of enclosures, some of which carried extreme performance, but also a hefty price tag as well.
