The SAT3510BU3 Black USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure lets you connect a 3.5in 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. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.

USB connected 3.5" 10k RPM 1TB SATA Drive Case
This is the 2nd enclosure I am now using for my 2 10k WD Raptor external SATA drives. Because the 10k drive runs hot, I needed an enclosure with a large fan to keep it cool. I've had the first enclosure for over 2 years without any problems to either the drive or the enclosure.
