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).

The Advantage
  • Transfer rates up to 5Gbps with new SuperSpeed USB 3.0, while still backward compatible with older USB 2.0 systems, for a versatile external storage solution
  • Supports both 9.5mm and 12.5mm height 2.5in SATA hard drives and powered completely from USB, for a versatile portable enclosure
  • Backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support
