Turn a 2.5in SATA Hard Drive (9.5mm or 12.5mm) into a Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive
Supports both 9.5mm and 12.5mm 2.5" form factor SATA hard drives
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 compliant host interface supporting data transfer rates up to 5Gbps
High Speed USB 2.0 compliant host interface, with transfer rates up to 480Mbps
The SAT2510B12U3 USB 3.0 External SATA Hard Drive Enclosure lets you connect a 2.5in (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) hard drive or solid state drive (SSD) through USB 3.0. Uniquely designed to be able to fit both 9.5mm and high capacity 12.5mm height hard drives for compatibility with virtually any available SATA hard drive. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 1TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities.
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).
