Satechi reveals new aluminum Type-C HDD/SSD enclosure

Satechi-Aluminum-Type-C-HDD-SSD-EnclosureIt is pretty cheap to purchase new storage options these days for your notebook or computer, especially when hard drive prices have plummeted to deliver a whole lot more terabytes for your hard earned buck. Of course, having a portable SSD ain’t too shabby either, as you can to enjoy blazing fast speeds without the natural “weaknesses” of a hard drive. Satechi is a name that is well known by many for their collection of computer accessories, and this time around they are the ones behind the new aluminum Type-C HDD/SSD enclosure that will provide easy and convenient data transfer at high speeds — meaning you will spend a whole lot less time drumming your fingers on the table and getting productive sooner rather than later.

This will be yet another Type-C solution that will make up part of its Metallic Series. Sporting data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps, this is a handy device that will enable users to access their data faster than ever before, as well as leave the door open for one to transfer data from a hard drive to a computer regardless of the time and place.

The Satechi Aluminum Type-C HDD/SSD Enclosure will rely on a USB 3.1 Type-C connection, which happens to be the latest version of USB, in order to access data. The included tool will enable users to easily install their 1” or 2.5” HDD or SSD, all the while arriving in a very slim and compact form factor f 5″ x 3″ x 0.5″. In other words, toting a hard drive with you wherever you are is a snap, be it for work or travel purposes.

Not only that, it is pleasing to the eyes thanks to an elegant and solid aluminum chassis, where one can choose from gold, silver or space grey shades, not to mention perfectly matching Apple’s existing product offerings. Those who are interested can pick up the Satechi Aluminum Type-C HDD/SSD Enclosure for $34.99 a pop.
