Who says you can never have enough storage. Well you really can not have too much. I myself have a few different computers around my house for different tasks, and I like to back them up and also share files over the network. External hard drives and enclosures are a great tool for keeping around your house or even on the go. There are so many different enclosures and NAS boxes on the market. Some do RAID, other’s do JBOD, some can hold only 1 drive and some can go up to 4 drives. Some of the cool things with the technology of the past few years is that we now have eSATA and USB 3.0. USB 3.0 offers up to 5 Gbps while eSATA offers less speed at around 3 Gbps. So today we will be reviewing the Vantec NexStar HX2R dual SATA Hard Drive Enclosure, so stick around and see if it would make a nice addition to your desk or office.

OCZ’s Vertex line of solid state drives have been around for a while and we have reviewed many different Vertex drives over the past few years. If you remember back in 2011 OCZ acquired Indilinx and with the acquisition they were able to create an SSD controller completely in-house. The controller was the Barefoot 3 and it was featured on OCZ’s Vector solid state drive that we reviewed earlier this year. Well OCZ is back with a new drive in their Vertex 450. It will feature the same Barefoot 3 controller, and new 20nm MLC NAND instead of the 25nm that was being used on the Vector. Today we are taking a look at the 128GB version of the Vertex 450 that features sequential read and write speeds of 525 MB/s and 290 MB/s respectively. Not only that OCZ has sent us two drives so we can show you just how fast these drives are when put in a RAID array together. Read on as we take a look…
