Sharkoon Announces Quickstore One 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure

With the Sharkoon Quickstore One, the range of external enclosures with a USB 3.1 interface expands further. It features a USB Type C port and is suitable for tool-free installation of a 2.5" HDD/SSD with a maximum height of 9.5 mm. The case is compatible with Windows 7/8/10, Mac OS X and Linux. The recommended retail price is 24.99 euros.

Sharkoon has historically offered a large variety of external hard drive enclosures and, with the new Quickstore One, introduces the third portable storage solution with a USB 3.1 interface. The top cover is comprised of brushed aluminum, which is available in the color versions of black or silver, with a plastic underside in black for both versions. The compact dimensions measure 130 x 83 x 16 mm, with a weight without a built-in hard drive of 92.5 grams.
The Quickstore One is aimed at those customers who prefer a completely tool-free and fast installation of 2.5" drives without having to sacrifice the high transfer rates of USB 3.1. The hard drive easily installs by hand in a few simple steps: push the underside to slide it open and insert a 2.5" HDD or SSD.

Maximum height of usable drives is 9.5 mm. The enclosure offers a USB 3.1 interface with a USB Type C port. The case connects to a computer by means of the provided 100 cm long USB cable with Type C plug to Type C plug. In combination with USB 3.1, the built-in Asmedia Controller, ASM1351 and ASM1542 offer a data transfer rate of up to 10 Gbit/s. The case is compatible with both SATA Revision 3.0 and earlier SATA Revisions. A status LED next to the USB Type C port indicates data transfer. Plug and Play is provided for the supported operating systems Windows 7/8/10, Mac OS X and Linux.

The Quickstore One is now available in the color versions black and silver for the suggested retail price of 24.99 euros.

Price maybe a little too high and unless people use SSD inside that enclosure I dont see any benefit to adding 10Gbps interface to 2.5" enclosure(which most people will be using for hdds).
