The S2510SM12U33 USB 3.0 to SATA hard drive enclosure with UASP enables you to connect a 2.5" SATA hard drive or solid state drive to your computer through an available USB port.
With support for drives up to 12.5mm in height, and high-capacity SATA I/II/III drives (tested up to 1TB) this versatile USB 3.0 enclosure ensures compatibility with virtually any 2.5" SATA hard drive or solid state drive.
To maximize performance and better utilize the full potential of your SATA III SSD/HDD the enclosure supports UASP, which allows for transfer speeds 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.
The USB 3.0 enclosure features a sleek design with high-quality aluminum construction and ventilation, ensuring excellent heat dissipation.
To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the S2510SM12U33 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 OST.
The S2510SM12U33 requires no external power adapter to maximize portability when carried as a laptop accessory and is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. In testing UASP performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.
At the same peak in testing UASP also shows an 80% reduction in required processor resources.
Testing results were obtained using an Intel® Ivy Bridge system, a UASP enabled StarTech.com Enclosure, and a SATA III solid state drive.
