USB 3.1 Gen 2 gives you greater bandwidth and speed, supporting transfer rates of up to 10Gbps - twice the speed of USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) technology. It lets you leverage the high performance of the latest SSDs and hard drives while alleviating bottlenecks in your data transfers.

Includes two USB cables for versatility

The dual-bay drive enclosure comes with two USB cables for flexible use with the latest laptops and tablets equipped with a USB-C™ port, as well as legacy devices. It includes both USB-C to Micro B and USB-A to Micro B cables. The 2-bay enclosure is also compatible with a Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C port.
