The Silverstone TS01B is a very nice laptop hard drive caddy, its about as small as they come, itís stylish if a little understated, but then again not everyone is into in your face styling and this certainly wouldnít look out of place in the office. Performance wise itís up there with the competition, in fact it was a little better performing than another laptop caddy I tested not so long back with the exact same hard drive. Plus it has the added security of the RFID keys so if you have some sensitive data you want to keep away from prying eyes then this certainly is the caddy for you, I doubt its up to military encryption standards but for around £30 its better than nothing. Even if you are after a normal caddy then the SilverStone TS01B can do that too.
- High security compared to other drives.
- Excellent build quality.
- Good data transfer speeds.
- Looks good.
- A bit more expensive than standard caddies.
- Little fiddly setting up the encryption mode.
- Drive needs to be unformatted to enable encryption.
Reality Check: If you want a laptop hard drive caddy that offers a bit of data security then look no further, definitely RECOMMENDED.
MANY thanks to SilverStone for supplying the TS01B for review
