Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Closer Look: Interior

The inside of the SilverStone Treasure TS07 is completely black anodized. All of the edges were finished. There were no sharp edges. Once you open the case, the tray is revealed.

The tray is designed to fit only 3.5” drives. It is possible to insert a 2.5” SATA drive but there are no built in methods for holding a 2.5” drive in place. The orange mounting bracket is rotated and then the pins insert into the standard screw holes located on the sides of the drive. The mechanism is very easy to use and locks in place with a good solid feel. The tray itself is designed to prevent accidental reverse mounting of the drive. Here we see the electronic components of the USB enclosure:

Components are placed on both sides of the PCB.

Readers already familiar with many of the USB 3.0 enclosures will recognize the asmedia ASM1051E. This popular chip is found on many enclosures to bridge USB 3.0 and 2.0 to serial ATA.
