ORICO Unveils TB3-S2 Thunderbolt Docking Station, and PSSD Biometric Portable SSD

ORICO unveiled a pair of innovating new storage and connectivity products over the last week. These include the TB3-S2 portable Thunderbolt docking station, and the PSSD portable SSD featuring fingerprint-based biometric security. The TB3-S2 is a compact multi-function docking station that measures 188 mm x 95 mm x 24 mm (WxDxH). It takes in a Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) connection, and can daisy-chain it onward to another Thunderbolt 3 port with full 8K @ 60 Hz capability (depending on the input).

The box draws power from a 120 W power brick. Inside, you'll find two M.2-2280 NVMe slots that can hold up to 4 TB of storage. The display input from the Thunderbolt 3 port is put out as a standard DisplayPort 1.3. There are a boat-load of downstream connectivity options, which include two 10 Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports (from which one is type-C), two 5 Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 1 type-A ports, a 60-Watt/15-Watt USB-PD port (purely for power delivery), a 1 GbE wired Ethernet interface, and a 2-channel audio with mic-input (USB DAC). Available now, the TB3-S2 is priced at USD $399.99.
The ORICO PSSD is a portable SSD that comes in 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB capacities. and is built in a solid aluminium body that doubles up as a heatsink for the drive under the hood. The drive takes advantage of a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) cable, and UASP (USB-attached SCSI protocol), offering transfer rates of up to 520 MB/s. A feature that stands out is its fingerprint-based biometric protection, which relies on a software-based tool to unlock the user-area of the drive. The tool is available for Windows (7 or later), MacOS, Linux, and Android. The 256 GB variant is priced at $79.99, the 512 GB variant at $99.99, and the 1 TB variant at $159.99.
