The black 3.5" SuperSpeed USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Enclosure with Fan from StarTech is an external storage solution that allows you to connect a 3.5" SATA hard drive through USB 3.0 and harness the speed and performance supported by the SuperSpeed USB interface. Supporting data transfer rates up to 5 Gb/s, the enclosure allows access to files at lightning fast speeds; 10 times that of USB 2.0 and 60% faster than SATA II eSATA. Furthermore, the enclosure is backwards compatible with USB revisions 2.0 and 1.1, so it can be used with older systems that do not support the current USB standard, at speeds of 480 Mb/s and 12 Mb/s respectively. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) can be used with the enclosure to significantly enhance your computer's storage / backup capabilities.
The drive enclosure features a compact, free-standing design which requires minimal desk space, and is equipped with a 3.1" (80mm) fan that helps keep the installed hard drive cool for peak performance. This versatile external storage solution is compatible with a broad range of Windows operating systems, as well as Linux.
