The miniStack MAX Enclosure with Blu-Ray Read/Write Drive from Newer Technology combines a Blu-ray/CD/DVD read/write drive, an SD card reader, and a USB powered hub in an aluminum enclosure that matches the appearance of a Mac mini. There's also room inside the enclosure for an internal hard drive, but this unit doesn't include one so you're free to install your own. The enclosure offers fully bootable data storage and backup along with 3 USB ports for powering and charging external devices.
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--USB 3.0/2.0, FireWire 800/400 or eSATA interface--offering data transfer speeds up to 300 MB/s. It is the perfect solution for storing your entire music, photo and video libraries as well as burning backups via the internal optical drive.
Whether you have a newer Mac mini that doesn't have an optical drive or have a legacy model with an inoperative drive, the miniStack MAX fills the gap when you need to install software from CD or DVD, load music into iTunes, access archived photos or watch Blu-ray and DVD movies on your computer. The integrated SD card reader (SDXC) on the front of the miniStack MAX makes transferring photos and videos simple. It also helps keep your desktop clean by eliminating the need for a separate card reader and yet another cable.
The three 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 2.1-amp charge-only port, ideal for charging an iPad or other devices.
