￭ USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C connector for reversible-plug and 5Gbps transfer speed
￭ Type-C charging port supports up to 60W for independent power delivery
￭ Additional dual USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports provide peripheral expansion
￭ Aluminum alloy body supports any 2.5" hard drive (up to 9.5mm)
￭ Supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) function for even faster performance
SilverStone’s TS15 is a multifunction 2.5-inch drive enclosure that can house a single 2.5-inch HDD/SSD. It has dual Type-C ports, one for USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transmission and another with USB Power Delivery for up to 60W charging capability. There are also two additional USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports with one of them meeting USB Battery Charging (BC) 1.2 standard to deliver up to 1.5A for quick charging. For connected 2.5" drive, the TS15 supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) for enhanced data transfer performance.
All in all, the TS15 sets a new benchmark for multifunction in an external storage device. Notebook computer users such as those with MacBooks that has only a single USB Type-C port will greatly benefit from this design. In addition to providing access to an external hard drive, it expands the number of available USB ports so users can access multiple USB devices while charging their notebook at the same time.
