There's a lot of hard drive docks available but few have wireless capabilities like the Ventec NexStar dock. This means expansive storage for virtually any device capable of wi-fi access. Even better, Vantec has apps for both the iOS and Android platforms making expanding storage for smart phones and tablets a snap. Have a look to see what our overall impressions were.
Using the Vantec NexStar WiFi dock is not much different than any other external dock when wired. Simply plug it into the USB 3.0 connector and the drive shows up just like a flash drive would. Access speeds through USB 3.0 is bottle-necked by the USB interface but still speedy as compared to USB 2.0. We used a 3Gbps Crucial M500 SSD in our test to make sure the drive wasn't the limiting factor. We hit 422MB/s read and 402MB/s write speeds with this docking station and SSD combination. Wireless performance will vary widely depending on the connection type, signal strength and paired hardware.
