Starting at the front of the enclosure we find two drive bays with silver buttons, LEDs and the latches for the HDD doors. To open the drive bay door simply push the latch to the right and it will pop open. The next item of interest is the usage LEDs that tells you when the HDD or SSD drive is being accessed. Silverstone’s top has their logo.
The sides of the unit have a set of grilled holes providing ventilation for the drives when inside the enclosure. The back of the enclosure has an eternal SATA port, a USB Mini port the power connector port, and a switch which turns the drives from JBOD to RAID 0 or 1 depending on your needs and vice versa. It’s a simple design that works well.
To prepare your enclosure for installation, make sure you meet the system requirements for the enclosure. Open the drive bay doors by sliding the sliders to the right and pulling out the drive door. There is only one way to install the HDDs/SD drives If you have to force it in you are installing it upside down. Push the drive door in and your hard drives are installed.
Drive installation is just the first step. The next step is connecting the unit to a PC with your device. To install an e-SATA device plug one end of the SATA cable into the External-SATA port on the motherboard the other into the e-SATA port on the enclosure. The process is easy and foolproof. The same procedure can be done on the mini USB port to USB connector. Plug in the mini-USB port to the external HDD and into the enclosure and hardware installation is easy. At this point turn on the computer and the device will be initiated.
