The increasing demand for high capacity mobile storage solutions drives consumers towards 2.5” HDDs and external enclosures. A 2.5” HDD requires minimal power to operate, while it can also offer the large storage capacity needed for regular back-ups or large file transfers.

Transferring large amounts of data over the USB bus can be a nightmare for many people who need to be on the move quickly. 2.5” drives are considerably larger than flash drives and, in many cases; the enclosures are not sturdy enough to protect the sensitive disk drives. The answer to these problems, according to SilverStone, is the MS05 enclosure. The MS05 is made out of aluminum, comes with a docking bay and offers not only a USB port but an eSATA port as well, which is considerably faster.
