For those in the market for a 2.5-inch external hard drive enclosure that supports Serial ATA 3.0 and works well with Linux while being a well-designed and effective product, being looked at today on Phoronix is the SilverStone Raven RVS02 disk enclosure.

In the past at Phoronix we have looked at other SilverStone storage products like the Raven RVS01, MS05 eSATA Enclosure, and even the Treasure TS01 external enclosure that was paired with RFID tags for greater data security. These external storage devices have worked out well -- some of them are still in use within the office -- and met the expectations as set by SilverStone's other compelling products. When SilverStone wanted to send out the Treasure TS07 and Raven RVS02 for review, the offer was accepted. In this review is a look at the RVS02 while the TS07 external enclosure review under Linux will be published in the coming days.

The SilverStone RVS02 boasts similar USB3/SATA3 transfer support to the TS07, but is a 2.5-inch disk enclosure with a different design.

- Elegant design with in mold decoration plastic
- Support 2.5-inch SATA I/SATA II / SATA III hard drive and SSD
- Plug and play with hot-swappable connection
- Maximum 5Gbit/s data transfer speed via USB 3.0 interface
- Maximum compatibility with USB2.0 (480Mbits)

Included with the 2.5-inch SATA disk enclosure were a USB 3.0 cable and the user's manual. It is as simple as that.
