Solid state drives are all the rage right now. The most common form factor for solid state drives is the 2.5-inch form factor. Many new cases have support for 2.5-inch drives, but many cases, even newer ones do not. No one wants to go out and buy a brand new case, just for a hard drive. Vantec knows this and has a whole line of hard drive racks that support 2.5-inch drives. Today we will be taking a look at the NexStar SE Dual 2.5-inch hard drive rack, which is a 5.25-inch bay device that supports two 2.5-inch drives. Let’s take a look…
