Good morning all :) It was my sister-in-laws 30th birthday last night, so, needless to say my head is feeling a little fuzzy this morning.

"Its amazing how the memory industry is ran. It seems like more and more companies are just doing the same thing. In a way it's good, and in other ways it's bad.

"A few months ago I took a look at the original NexStar 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure, and was somewhat less than impressed with it. Since then Vantec has completely redesigned their NexStar line and was kind enough to send us one of their new NexStar 2 5.25" drive enclosures. Once again armed with support for USB 2.0 and Firewire, the redesigned enclosure just might be a worthy addition to your desktop."
