Conclusion

 

The Vantec NexStar 3i Power Management Hard Disk Enclosure is one of the best, if not THE best, HDD enclosures we have ever tested. It offers great power management, thanks to the enclosure being extremely frugal with how long the hard drive is kept active for. Not only would this help to reduce power consumption but it should also increase the overall life of the hard disk drive itself.

 

The HDD enclosure works perfectly with virtually any HDD you can get on the market today. We used a Western Digital 400GB SATA HDD to test its’ performance inside the HDD enclosure; the results are displayed in the graph. We also used a 4.12GB ISO file for copying to and from the HDD to test how quickly it could handle the file transfer and we ended up seeing a 3 minute transfer from the HDD and 6 minutes and 35 seconds to copy the same file to the HDD; the enclosure was silent the entire time.

 

The Vantec NexStar 3i Power Management Hard Disk Enclosure can be found online selling for $36 and can be found for AED 175 in the UAE market.
