"We had a very good feedback in the past regarding the internal removable storage media device and decided to sale it also in new portfolio because of the customer feedback," said Michael Albes, chairman of Xilence. The SSD docks are ideal for those who are running older systems that lack 2.5-inch drive housing, or for those who might need extra storage space.
