The docking station is made of a hard plastic that is very sturdy. The bottom has four rubber feet to keep the unit from sliding while in use. There is an eject button right above the logo on the front, that securely ejects the hard drive, protecting it from possible damage during removal. To the right of the eject button is the power and activity LED. The circle glows blue when the drive in on and will flash red when there is activity on the inserted drive. On the back of the docking station, are the power switch, the power plug and the USB 2.0 plug for data transfer.
Installation of the BlacX is quite simple really. Plug in the power source and the USB 2.0 cable. Next slide the 2.5" or 3.5" hard drive into the docking bay. The flap will fold down according to the drive thickness and help keep it stable. Once in, turn on the power switch and you will see the power LED light up. On the computer, you will see the auto-run box pop up and you are ready to go.
