iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA and BPU-124DE-SS HDD Docks

E-mail Print

The two products from them that will we will be taking a look at are the BPN-2535DE and the BPU-124DE-SS. Both are backplanes that will fit in either a 3.5” or 5.25” bay depending on the model that best fits your needs. Also, they each share the ability to house multiple 2.5” drives. For most average computer users today, these products are ideal for if you have problems with having lack of support for internal drives in your chassis. Getting either the BPN-2535DE or the BPU-124DE-SS will be a wiser solution than buying a larger chassis which would likely cost you more. Now, read on to check the differences of the two to determine the best for your need.

E-mail Print

This leads us to our latest review sample. We will be taking a look at SilverStone's newest USB 3.0 RAID enclosure called the SilverStone DS322. This is a step above the typical USB enclosure as it supports two drives and not only that; the drives can be configured using the two simplest forms of RAID which would be 0 and 1.

Icy Dock MB153SP-B FatCage Internal SATA Backplane Rack Review

E-mail Print

For you that do not know actually what a SATA Backplane let me give you a brief understanding. It’s a small box that usually fit into an optical drive bay or two there are even some 3.5” models that allows the usage of multiple hard drives. The models fitted for the 5.25” bay can usually support both 2.5” and 3.5” drives while the smaller unit can only support multiple 2.5” drives. And if you get a good one you will even get Raid support.


Vantec NST-400MX-S3R NexStar MX Enclosure

E-mail Print

Not too long ago we did a write-up on the Vantec MX400-SR Raid enclosure which we gave the ‘Recommended’ for its support for two drives and a couple different forms of Raid. But it only supported USB 2.0 which is no longer the speed demon we need when it comes to data transfer. So, Vantec has graced us with the newest model of the device and has labeled it the 400MX-S3R. the newer version gives us the USB 3.0 speed we want and plus eSATA for versatility.

Vantec NST-D400SU3 NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock

E-mail Print

The first will be the NST-D400SU3 aka NexStar SuperSpeed Dual Bay hard drive dock. After the introduction of enclosure, docks soon followed and in many cases became more useful than an enclosure. There is no assembling and disassembling, just plug and go. The D400SU3 is ideal as it can hold two drives. One added feature to this new model is you can take advantage of both high-speed connections….eSATA and USB 3.0.

Our friends at Vantec have sent to us over our first multi-drive 2.5” rack in the form of the MRK-425ST-BK or the F4 Quad Bay rack. The rack installed in a single 5.25” optical drive bay and can house a total of four 2.5” SATA drives allowing you to get rid the interior HDD cages and allow for better airflow in many cases.

User Rating: / 1PoorBest 

Silverstone DS321External hard drive enclosures are a dime-a-dozen in this day and age, with more and more of them hitting the market. Many of them are single drive units that are good for a quick way to store or access your data externally, but this type of enclosure is not fitted for all of us.
