The SAT2510BU3 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure lets you connect a 2.5in SATA hard drive through USB 3.0 - a cutting edge external storage solution that lets you harness the speed and performance supported by the SuperSpeed USB interface. Supporting data transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps, this external HDD enclosure delivers access to files at lightning fast speeds - 10x that of USB 2.0, and 60% faster than SATA II eSATA. Plus, the USB 3.0 interface is backward compatible with USB revisions 2.0 and 1.1, so the enclosure can be used with older systems that don't support the newest USB standard (at speeds of 480Mbps and 12 Mbps, respectively). The hard drive enclosure features a compact, aluminum and plastic design that delivers a durable, ultra portable external storage solution. This versatile external storage solution is compatible with a broad range of Windows operating systems, as well as Linux and Mac OS X and up. Backed by 1 year warranty and free, lifetime technical support.
