Gigabyte GeForce GTX 950 WindForce 2x Overclocking Edition

The USB port has really evolved over time. It was only about 14 years ago that we were introduced to the first fully functional USB ports. Over time, they have only gotten faster and more convenient. Specifications and power techniques have changed to allow bigger and better devices to be used with the USB port. I mean heck, you can charge your phone on a USB port now. It only seems to be getting better and better.


Portable storage seems to be all of the rage. The only problem is that when you start hitting the bigger storage devices, the limitations with the USB 2.0 speeds cause large file transfers to take an eternity. We have reached the point with 10+ mega pixel pictures and high definition movies where we need more speed. External SATA tried to alleviate the burdens with increased speeds, but at the cost of a brand new port that was incompatible with most of the current and older devices.


The NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 2.5'' External Hard Drive Enclosure supercharges portable storage. The NexStar External Hard Drive Enclosure lets you take any 2.5" hard drive and unleash its full potential outside of the computer case. The NexStar 3 2.5" Enclosure retains the same mirror finish and aluminum casing as its 3.5" brother, as well as utilizing the new USB 3.0 transfer speeds.
