NexStar Dual Bay Hard Drive Dock

The Vantec NexStar can connect two 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch hard drives at once. That’s very useful if you want to transfer files between two external drives. However, you’ll have to connect the NexStar using only USB 2.0 or eSATA, there’s no FireWire port. The already-slow USB pipeline gets overloaded while simultaneously reading one drive and writing to another, so be prepared to wait while the drives do their thing.
