Teratrend SST-TS431U 4-bay USB 3.0 Storage Tower Review

Rating: 8.0.

SilverStone is a company that you will most certainly have heard of. They produce a large range of Cases, Power Supplies and Storage devices. On the other hand, the name Teratrend probably won't mean much to you. Teratrend is a new division of SilverStone dedicated to delivering professional storage solutions.

Teratrend currently list 7 products on their website, 4 of which are Tower Storage Solutions. Today's product is the 4-bay USB 3.0 and eSATA version, called the TS413U. Each bay can theoretically cater for 4 TB drives giving an impressive total storage of 16 TB in one enclosure. However, total capacity isn't everything, and we hope the TS413U can deliver good performance as well.
