Vantec NexStar MX Overview
The NexStar MX is not that large of a device at all, it’s official dimension are 133(L) x 90(H) x 52(W) mm. It is mainly made of aluminum with ABS plastic in certain places. It has a good overall look to it though.
At the front of the device there are three activity LEDs, one for power and one each for the hard drives. There is also a small Vantec logo.
The side of the unit is pretty plain, although there is a NexStar MX logo at the top left and a small RAID emblem at the bottom right.
Moving around back there is a small 40 mm fan that will keep things inside nice and cool. As far as connections go you have a USB 3.0 connection and a power connection. There is also a small power switch.
The unit comes without the screws attached so the inside of the unit easily slides out from the back.
Here we can see it is a simple dual SATA bay that supports 2.5-inch drives.
