The miniStack MAX Storage Enclosure without Drive from Newer Technology is a single, elegant aluminum finish enclosure with no hard drives included. The enclosure offers fully bootable data storage and backup along with 3 USB ports for powering and charging external devices.

An integrated SD card reader (SDXC) conveniently located on the front of the drive makes transferring photos and videos from digital cameras easier. If you are looking for massive capacity in a desktop space-saving design or want to give your notebook more functionality, the miniStack MAX can stack upon itself to create a "tower of power." It is lightweight and compact so you can enjoy the power of desktop accessories wherever you go.

The miniStack Max enclosure can handle the demands of extended storage or backup. It is also great for intensive data access such as professional audio and video editing. A quad interface allows you to choose the data connection that suits your workflow; supports USB 3.0/2.0, FireWire 800/400 or eSATA interfaces, offering data transfer speeds up to 300 MB/s. It is the perfect solution for storing your entire music, photo and video libraries.

The integrated SD card reader (SDXC) on the front of the miniStack Max makes transferring photos and video super-simple. In addition, it helps keep your desktop clean by eliminating the need for an external card reader and yet another cable.

The 3 USB powered ports on the back make the miniStack Max a convenient digital hub for connecting external devices like iPhones, mice or keyboards. One of the USB ports is a high-powered 2.1 A slot, making it ideal for charging an iPad or other devices that require more power than provided by standard USB connections.

    miniStack MAX Storage Enclosure without Drive is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, although a few quibbles. I have issues if it loses power or cable is detached, takes a lot of re plugging, and power cycling to get it to mount after a power down or disconnect. It is fast and quiet, all the inputs are useful. The SD slot could have been better designed, perhaps a spring unload feature, the angle to grasp the card when inserted is crazy. On the whole, more good than bad.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, quirky performance I have it connected to my Mac-Mini. I installed a CD/DVD superdrive and a 2 TB SATA 3.5 HD. It took some doing to the the HD to mount. I needed to have the USB 3 cable connected between the Mac Mini and MiniStack to get it to mount. This is in addition to connecting. I have all the USB ports I need between the Ma ini, MiniStack and a separate 7 port hub.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Bootable with multiple partitions The unit worked fine for simple read & write of data to an enclosed hard drive or one pluged into the USB hub ports. However, my hard drive in this enclosure was not bootable, at least when the drive has multiple partitions, with OS X 10.10 connected to a Ma ini with fusion drive using USB3 conection. (I could selected the boot partitions on the drive from the Mac's Startup Disk pane, but the reboot always defaulted back to the mac's internal drive. I did not test a single partition drive in this enclosure.) The MiniStackMax is still advertised as Fully Bootable, eventhough OWC tech support admits the boot problems for this enclosure started with release of OS X 10.7 in July 2011. Tech support told me that an OS in the 1st partition should be bootable, but this was not true for my machine.The USB hub function of the enclosure also showed limitations. Mac Disk Utility hung up when trying to create & format a new partition on a portable drive that was plugged into the USB hub ports on the MiniStack Max. This problem did not occur with same drive connected directly to the Ma ini. When my Ma ini was sitting idle with MiniStackMax connected, I got 4 alert messages from Ma ini that said XXX Disc not ejected properly where XXX was each of the 4 partitions on the drive in the MiniStackMax. Curiously, Finder still showed them as all still connected (mounted). Maybe it was a momentary drop in the connection?? This happened once during my one day use of the product; I have not tried to see if it happens again. Finally, don't sit the MiniStackMax on top of a Ma ini, only the Mini on top of the Max. The HD is on the bottom of the Max which can get quite how and thus overheat the Ma ini.
