With the enclosure, we received a power adapter and USB 3.0 cable along with a small screwdriver and drive screws.

The exterior of the TX has a single-piece aluminum shell with the internals comprised of plastic.

The backside houses a rather simple I/O with just power input and USB 3.0 connectivity.

The tray area is large enough to accommodate any 3.5" drive, but it does not have mounting for 2.5" drives.

The Performance

Flash Bench is where we started, again with the same Seagate SSD. Read and write started off around 390 MB/s but moved up to 400 MB/s from 8M through 512K.

Above, we have the results from CDM. We reached 389 MB/s read and 387 MB/s write giving this solution plenty of throughput for any mechanical drive you wish to install.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Tyler Bernath

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
