FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Vantec NexStar TX 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure

 This enclosure worked as advertised.  It was easy to install the drive and the instructions were very simple.  I think the documentation could be a little more extensive.  I had to go to the web site support section to find out why there was a USB Y cable.  The Y cable is needed if you find your hard drive is not performing properly on a single USB connection.   The Y cable has one thick and one thin leg.  The thick leg is your traditional data/power USB cable.  The thin leg is for additional power only.   You only need to use it if you find your drive is not behaving properly.   That is a bit more subjective than I prefer but since my drive behaved perfectly, I won’t be worrying about it. 

The price of this was $9.99 at Amazon.  The quality is fine and it does just what I expected. 

From the vendor:
·  Aluminum Casing Cools Down Your Hard Drive
·  Easily Add Storage to Any System with USB
·  Hot-Swappable:  Plug & Play Without Rebooting
·  Supports SATA I and II

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
