In typical Thermaltake style, the packaging is sturdy, listing the main features of the dock, and makes for attractive packaging on the shelf.
Inside the box is the dock, a power brick, a USB cable, and an e-SATA cable. No bracket is included, although Thermaltake sells one for a reasonable price.
PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
The BlacX is a straightforward affair. Up front, there's a single button to release your HDD. A blue activity light is on the right-hand side. A BlacX logo and a small Tt logo round out this side of the dock.
