Turn a 2.5" SATA Hard Drive or Solid State Drive into a UASP supported USB 3.0 External Hard Drive. The S2510BMU33 USB 3.0 Hard Drive Enclosure with UASP lets you connect a 2.5in SATA III hard drive (HDD) or solid state drive (SSD) through an available USB port. The enclosure delivers optimal performance with a USB 3.0 connection, but is backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 host connections as well.

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.

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 computer.

The USB 3.0/SATA III enclosure requires no external power adapter and features high quality aluminum construction, ensuring both portability and durability when carried as a laptop accessory.

To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the S2510BMU33 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.

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.

StarTech.com 2.5in USB 3.0 SATA HDD/SSD Enclosure w/ UASP for SATA 6 Gbps is rated3.00 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work perfectly.Bought it today, slapped a Samsung 840 pro SSD inside, hooked it up via USB 3 and instantly got a reading of 455 Reads and 421 Write speed. Then I transfered 10 GB of DPX files and took under 8 seconds! The USAP in this enclosure is the major advantage. Its self powered to boot. Perfect for very fast portable storage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG this thing is slow.I used this set up a Samsung 840 EVO SSD as an external drive. I'm only seeing around 20MB/sec file copy speed on this drive (about 50x slower than 1GB/sec with the internal ssd on the same computer).The same SSD had reasonable performance in another system, so I suspect this enclosure is the cause of the lousy performance.The enclosure is simple to set up an use, but there must be a better performing solution out there.
