The Thermaltake BlacX external HDD was very popular when it first arrived and the updated 5G USB 3.0 model looks to be even more popular.  Resembling a toaster when populated, the device is intended for naked drives making it easy to swap out HDD without disassembling a cage.  The testing that The Tech Report performed confirmed the speed, about twice as fast as a USB 2.0 connection and right in line with an eSATA connection.

“External docking stations are a great way to quickly swap hard drives into a system. Gather round to see if we made a connection with Thermaltake’s SuperSpeed-equipped BlacX 5G.”
