The obvious thing that stands out is the inclusion of the RFID key, other than that everything appears to be as you would expect of any laptop drive caddy, it should be compatible with all but the oldest of PC and MAC hardware out there. Personally, without researching it, I don’t know anything about the chipset but it is certainly unusual to see that info included.
The following was also included on the SilverStone website.
Reading through the above it you c
· If you install your hard drive already filled with data into the TS01B, it will only function as a normal mobile storage device. RFID function will be disabled.
· To enable RFID function, you need to delete all existing partitions on the hard drive (please backup all important data to another drive or device first) before installing it into the TS01B. After setup procedure with RFID key, the TS01B will automatically encrypt all data written to the hard drive for security.
· TS01B RFID enclosure supports at most five different hard drives with RFID secure function, if you try to setup encryption on a sixth hard drive with TS01B, it will give off a consistent “bip” warning sound and doesn’t work. There will be no limitation in using as a normal external hard disk.
· If you need to re-encrypt the hard drive, please delete and partition it again with other external enclosure, then install it to the TS01B RFID external enclosure to set-up the encryption. Please make sure to backup all the important files before deleting and redo the partition.
an just drop a hard drive into the TS01B and away you go but the security of the RFID will be disabled, this I am a little surprised about as I assumed the RFID would work regardless. The enclosure must also keep some kind of tally as to how many drives it has encrypted, as it will only work on a maximum of 5.
