Thermaltake BLACX 5G
Thermaltake released the BlacX Duet back in 2009 which made connecting to and swapping out multiple hard drives quick and easy. The BlacX Duet was received by the average I.T. engineer who connects to imaging and or searching for data on tens if not hundreds of SATA drives on a daily or weekly basis the ability to hot swap these drives with ease. The one drawback with the BlackX duet is it was USB 2.0 and dealing with SATA drives which can be in the 500GB and 1TB+, the movement of data is limited to the speed of USB 2.0. Thermaltake has now released the BlacX 5G which supports USB 3.0. Let’s take a look at the specs to get a better understanding of what this new product has to offer.
