Here's the spec:
Supported Hard Drives:
2.5" SSD/HDD (Must be SATA for use with EP02)
72(W) x 18(H) x 115(D) mm
So to insert your storage device into the MS07, it features a nicely sized hole at one end to slide it in. I do like the simplicity of this but for me it just leaves too much open space for me to feel completely comfortable about how secure the device is in the case.
Turn the case round to the other side and we find another smaller slot that is used to connect the Silverstone EP02 to an inserted Sata HDD or SSD.
Having this option makes the MS07 a good choice for 2 things; To be used as just a protective sleeve in the same manner you would have a phone case, or to use it in conjunction with the EP02 as a portable external hard drive enclosure
The MS07 also serves the purpose of stackable storage with the top side featuring the Silverstone logo along with ridges that radiate out from out in a spiral like fashion. With the inverse being indented into the underside of the case, the MS07 and inserted storage device can be stacked with another MS07.
Having this is a very nice bonus however I personally feel like most people will not have more than one 2.5" drive that they are actually using for external storage and want to buy an enclosure/case for. Though I feel this way, I also don't have much to complain about as I don't see the inclusion of this feature increasing the COP (cost of production) and therefore isn't increasing the retail price.
The Last thing to note is that the internal portion of the case is lined with rubber bumps to suspend the drive in the case and add extra support and protection just in case you accidentally drop it. This lines all sides of the inside as shown in the photo (Right). Moving onto our conclusion on the Silverstone MS07 2.5" SSD/HDD Silicone case.
The MS07 blurs the boundaries between an enclosure/dock and a storage case for 2.5" devices. Being able to be bought and just used as a case makes this a great option because alone this is a cheap product to buy. When you look at the bigger picture however and see that it is specifically designed for use with the EP02, buying both of these products will cost as much as a standard enclosure would meaning it is really hard to give this a value rating. As a stand alone product I would give this a 10/10 for value but the fact that it is designed with the EP02 in mind means that if bought together, the value would then become very average at 5/10. Due to this I have chosen to take an average and give this product a 7.5/10 Value Rating which is still of award standard for this part at least. Keep in mind if you have no intention of buying this with the EP02, then you would have a definite 10/10 for value.
For our rating of this product with price disregarded, I have chosen to give the MS07 a 6.5. This is because again, while the MS07 offers slightly more flexibility than competing products, there is no one thing about it that completely separates itself from the market. This leaves it clearly above average rating wise but not so far as to destroy all competition.
Receiving 14/20 the MS07 is a definite contender and is a comfortable choice regardless of the route you want to go.
