The S2510BU3PW USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure features Touchpad Encryption, enabling you to turn almost any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) into an AES-encrypted external hard drive. The enclosure supports large capacity hard drives (tested with up to 1TB), maximizing system storage expansion and backup capabilities.

Using an Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm (256-bit AES), all of the data on hard drives installed within the enclosure is securely protected from unauthorized users. Encryption is performed completely in-hardware and real-time, ensuring maximum performance while eliminating the need for complicated software installation. Access to the encrypted content is allowed through the built-in touchpad, so any system that supports a USB storage device can be used to access the data.

The S2510BU3PW encrypted HDD enclosure is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Legit Reviews


“An attractive option.”

People or organizations that want to protect confidential data will find valuable encryption features in a very sleek package.



“A creative way to easily keep your files, specifically those not located right on your computer safe and secure, especially while you’re on the road.”

What’s unique about this StarTech unit is that the encryption does not happen at the operating system level or via software from the computer, instead it’s all done within the hardware in real-time via a 256-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm) encryption and a high speed 32-bit ARM based controller.

Bottom Line: 3.5/5


“Setting the device up is a piece of cake.”

The manual’s step by step format clearly guides you through the procedure, advising you when particular caution needs to be taken, and letting you know about anything you may have been unsure of.

Bottom Line: 4.5 of 5 stars

Its light weight and slim design makes it highly portable — if need be, fitting in a man’s shirt pocket. It is very easy to install, configure, and operate — entirely intuitive — and it is also beautifully finished on all sides.

Bottom Line: Highly recommended!
