Enhanced with UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), this 2.5" SATA III
enclosure performs up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when
paired with a UASP-enabled host controller. Using a more efficient
protocol than the traditional USB BOT (Bulk-Only Transport), UASP
reduces latency, significantly increasing transfer speeds and reducing
processor usage to utilize the full potential of your SATA III hard
drives. See our UASP testing results below for further details.
With support for SATA I/II/III, and large capacity drives (tested up to
1TB) this HDD enclosure is compatible with virtually any 2.5in SATA hard
drive, and greatly increase the storage/backup capabilities of your
