After recently testing the SilverStone RVS02 2.5-inch SATA enclosure, here is a look at the SilverSton TS07 3.5-inch SATA 3.0 SATA external enclosure.
The SilverStone TS07 is a 3.5-inch HDD/SSD enclosure with its key features being listed below.
- 5Gbits USB 3.0 Super Speed transfer rate.
- Support 3.5 SATA III SSD or hard drive.
- An entirely tool-less design.
- Maximum compatibility with USB2.0 (480Mbits)
Aluminum and plastic compose the Treasure TS07 enclosure, which measures in at 193 x 35 x 128 mm. The body itself is all aluminum with a very nice black finish. The weight on the enclosure (without any SSD/HDD) is merely 340 grams.
SilverStone advertises this product as being compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac OS X 10.x, and Linux. While having Linux compatibility problems with external disk enclosures is very rare, it's rare to see a peripheral vendor actually advertise the Linux support, so props to see SilverStone for marking Linux on their products. This was also the case with the RVS02 enclosure.
