Vantec NexStar GX
Friday November 18, 2005

People always ask us, "Whatever happened to the Macpower M9-LX?" Well, Vantec has released the NexStar GX, an enclosure based on the Macpower M9-LX. According to Vantec, "The NexStar GX provides the next generation of external hard drive enclosures. More than conveniently allowing added storage, the NexStar GX increases expandability by integrating a powered USB hub. Using a specially designed SMART active/passive cooling system ensures that your drive stays cool and functioning optimally. The NexStar GX utilizes high speed USB 2.0, offering speeds up to 480 Mbps, 40 times the speed of USB 1.1! Smart and expandable, the NexStar GX is the ideal way to store and transfer your data."

Virtual-Hideout has posted a thorough review of the NexStar GX on their website. The Vantec NexStar GX is available now and priced at $49.99.
