Vantec NexStar 3
To this point many external SATA enclosures haven't catch our attention; there have been quite a few mediocre enclosures we have laid our eyes on, but nothing that we felt was a godsend. However, recently the Vantec NexStar 3 managed to peak our interest so we decided to look at this enclosure, which supports 3.5" SATA 2.0 hard drives and an external interface of either eSATA or USB 2.0. Will the Vantec NexStar 3 be the drive enclosure we have been looking for?

The Vantec NexStar 3 is available in four colors: steel grey, midnight blue, onyx black, and brilliant red. The model that we will be reviewing today is the midnight blue NST-360U2-BL. Included with the NexStar 3 was the user manual, vertical stand, AC adapter, eSATA cable, USB 2.0 cable, and eSATA expansion bracket. The AC power adapter is external and not integrated into the enclosure housing (unfortunately).
