Vantec Nexstar Wi-Fi Hard Drive Dock Review
Article Publish Date:
If you haven’t noticed the last few months have brought on the popularity of Wi-Fi storage. Devices from a number of manufacturers have been creeping out of every corner, and so it is only right that one of largest and most popular vendors of docking stations would join in on the fun and introduce one of they can call their own.
Vantec has built a solid reputation over the years with their unique and solid lineup of NexStar enclosures and docks. In fact we just reviewed two of the latest and came away pleased with the build quality and overall performance of these units.
Today we are switching gears a bit and introducing the world to the latest product to have the NexStar brand stamped upon it ; the Vantec Nexstar Wi-Fi Hard Drive Dock.
As with most wireless solutions Vantec has kept with the standard allowance of 802.11 connections with security such as WPA, WPA2 and WEP while still allowing multiple users to connect simultaneously.
The unique feature is this is a hard drive dock and not an enclosure so we have the option of 3.5 or 2.5 inch drives. Oh and before I forget to mention it, the NexStar Wi-Fi also includes USB 3.0 for super-speed transfers when needed.
