You ever need an external enclosure? Ever have hard drives just lying around? Probably not, but if you do they would be great to use with the BlacX Duet. Whats the coolest thing about the BlacX Duet? Well how about the fact that it can handle two hard drives at the same time. The BlacX Duet is a hard drive docking station for use with Serial ATA hard drives. What could be better than a docking station? It allows you to swap in and out hard drives with great ease. Not only does it feature USB for data connection it also features eSATA. Not only that but the dock can handle two 2TB hard drives so you have a lot of capable space potential and it also supports 2.5" drives using a door that hugs around the 2.5" drive and gives away when you use larger drives.
Looking at the front of the box we can see the dock displayed in its full glory. Also displayed on the front is the fact that it supports USB and eSATA interfaces. Moving to the left side of the box we have the barcode and branding logo with pictures showing that it uses SATA to USB or SATA to eSATA to interface with your PC or Mac. Yes, as you will find this docking station also has Mac support so none of you Mac fans are left in the dust. On the back we have pictures and descriptions of parts on the dock as well as lists of specifications and features the dock has. In addition to that we are made aware of a 3 year warranty. Finally, we are left with the right side of the box which looks about the same as the left side just with out the barcode and a big 'X Duet' instead of 'BlacX Duet'.
But wait, there is more to see. I haven't even taken it out of the box yet. Let's move onto the next page.
