The SAT3510BU3 Black USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure lets you connect a 3.5in SATA hard drive through USB 3.0 - a cutting edge external storage solution that lets you harness the speed and performance supported by the SuperSpeed USB interface. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) 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 drive enclosure features a compact, free-standing design that requires minimal desk space, and is equipped with an 80mm fan that helps keep the installed hard drive cool for peak performance.

To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the SAT3510BU3 supports all of the leading 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™.
