PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



At first glance, I have to say this enclosure is quite nice to look at. It features aluminum construction with a glossy mirror finish. While this kind of finish is pleasing to the eye, it does tend to attract dust and fingerprints.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


A NexStar3 SuperSpeed logo is found on one side of the enclosure and if anyone should question that the unit is USB 3.0 compatible, this will set the record straight.



The back of the enclosure is laid out in a very simple way. There is a socket for the power adapter, an on/off switch, and a port for the USB 3.0 cable.



USB 3.0 cables are easy to differentiate from USB 2.0 cables. For one, they are blue inside. They are also noticeably thicker than their predecessors why is this? Well, it's because they have eight wires inside. USB 2.0 cables only had four wires. A USB 3.0 cable has those same four wires found in a USB 2.0 cable, plus four additional wires to meet the SuperSpeed requirement.
