It seems like nowadays everyone has a little geek in them.  It seems like everyone I know is carrying some kind of flash drive with them.  It would seem that people want to carry certain data with them where ever they go, whether it's music, movies, pictures or important documents.  Of course flash drives have their place, they are small, require no external power and can fit in your pocket.  They are also small in storage capacity too.  If you need to carry a lot of files with you or just some large files, you are going to have to step up to a portable hard drive.  Vantec has sent over an enclosure today that is for full size hard drives.  This enclosure can handle up to a 1TB drive.  Let's check it out.

    Packaging and Contents

    The Nexstar 3i came well packaged.  The drive was neatly tucked in foam padding and looked quite safe.

    The Nexstar 3 comes with everything you need to start transporting your information.  The only thing that you have to provide is the SATA Hard drive.

    Since this enclosure will be housing a full size hard drive, you will need to use the provided external power supply.
