Admit it: if you had to choose between 500GB of external storage space versus 1TB or more, you’d choose the latter. It only makes sense – in an age where our lives become further entwined with the digital content that surrounds us, capacity remains king. Unfortunately, in most cases, storage performance has suffered as a result, as the ubiquitous (but slow) USB 2.0 specification was embraced while eSATA and the ill-fated FireWire 1394 spec was all but forgotten.

The times, as they say, are a-changin’, and PC enthusiasts are quickly finding that SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is really all that and a bag of potato chips. Pushing performance well past what USB 2.0 can muster, USB 3.0 is considered the gold standard in external data transferring technology. Leveraging on the insane performance offered by USB 3.0, SilverStone introduces its first 3.5″ USB 3.0 external enclosure, the SilverStone SST-TS07B.

Not all external enclosures are created equal, at least that’s what SilverStone would have you believe. Constructed of aluminum with an innovative tool-less design, the SST-TS07B represents SilverStone’s attempt to marry large capacity storage drives with the convenience and wicked quick performance offered by USB 3.0. Priced at $36.99 USD at Amazon, the SST-TS07B comes with a 1-year warranty.
