Enhanced with UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), this 3.5" SATA III enclosure performs up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller.

See our UASP testing results below for further details.
With support for SATA I/II/III, and large capacity drives (tested up to 4TB) this HDD enclosure is compatible with virtually any 3.5in SATA hard drive, and can greatly increase the storage/backup capabilities of your computer.
The USB 3.0/SATA III enclosure features high quality aluminum construction, ensuring durability.
Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
