The black 2-Bay USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure with UASP from StarTech enables you to build a secure RAID array with two 3.5" SATA hard drives with the option to connect it to your computer through either an available USB 3.0 port, at speeds up to 5 Gb/s, or an eSATA port, at speeds up to 6 Gb/s.

The RAID enclosure supports SATA III (up to 6 Gb/s), SATA II (up to 3 Gb/s), and SATA I (up to 1.5 GB/s) transfer speeds, as well as USB 3.0 transfer speeds (up to 5 Gb/s) for fast data transfer and efficient performance from your SATA III drives. When connected through USB, the enclosure supports UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), which offers a tested performance of up to 70% faster read speeds and 40% faster write speeds than a traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller (not included). UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. With support for JBOD (individual drives), spanning (combining drive capacities but no redundancy), RAID 0 (performance), and RAID 1 (data redundancy), the enclosure offers several options that enable you to customize your drive arrangement based on your storage requirements.

To help maximize both durability and reliability, the external RAID enclosure features aluminum construction with a built-in 80mm ball bearing fan that helps improve ventilation and maintain a better operating environment for your drives. The HDD enclosure offers a versatile solution for increasing the storage/backup capabilities of your computer, with support for large capacity hard drives (tested up to 4TB). It supports most operating systems, including Microsoft Windows (8/7/Vista/XP/Server 2008/Server 2003), Apple OSX (10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6), Linux, and Google Chrome OS to help ensure compatibility with your computer system.

The RAID enclosure operates using an included 100 to 240 VAC universal power adapter. Also included is a USB 3.0 cable, an eSATA cable, and a rubber foot set.
