Vantec HX4 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure Review

Review

This is an incredible external hard drive. It will hold up to four SATA hard drives. I love the Vantec HX4 so much that I purchased two of them! If you’re looking for the best solution for Mac photo and/or video storage the Vantec HX4 is hard to beat! The price is great and you can add more hard drives as the need for more storage arises. This is much more affordable than other external hard drive or NAS devices and it’s USB 3.0. The operation of the Vantec HX4 is very quiet and thermals or fan noise have never been a problem for me. The Vantec HX4 will work equally-well for Windows, Linux, etc. I’m a Mac user an chose the Vantec HX4 instead of more expensive Thunderbolt hard drives for my Final Cut Pro X storage and iPhoto storage needs.

Vantec HX4 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure Review 98.5

This Vantec is great! I bought one and have 4 hard drives in it 4TB size. The unit is really quiet and never gets hot. USB 3 is fast and there in only one cable that goes to the computer to handle up to all 4 drives. You don't have to run all 4 drives. You can add one drive and then add more as needed.
