Connect five hot-swappable 2.5/3.5" SATA III hard drives to your computer externally through USB 3.0 with UASP or eSATA. The S355BU33ERM 5-bay Removable Hard Drive Enclosure lets you access five individual 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives simultaneously, through a single eSATA or USB port connection to your laptop or desktop computer.

For fast performance and efficient data transfers, you can connect the removable drive enclosure to your computer through either eSATA or USB 3.0. The enclosure supports full SATA III data transfer rates up to 6 Gbps, when connected through eSATA. When connected through USB 3.0, the enclosure supports transfer speeds up 5 Gbps plus support for UASP, which performs up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller.

With support for the fastest drive technologies available including SATA III (6 Gbps), hybrid drives and solid state drives (SSD), the enclosure helps you save time through optimized performance from your external storage.

For optimal drive performance and longevity, the HDD/SSD enclosure features a built-in fan, which helps cool your drives while ensuring maximum heat dissipation.

To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the S355BU33ERM 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked, for a whileI received this as a gift in december 2018. Since then the product worked flawlessly for a long period of time, until relatively recently. I started having issues when using it with a mac, and with nearly 2 TB of data across 5 HDD's all my drives became corrupted and wouldnt mount. Not understanding what was happening and being a fixer I tried everything I could think to get this back online, even going as far to hook up a different power supply. The dock will corrupt any mac drive that is connected for me, and in windows I get a read/write speed of 34MB/s both ways (USB 2.0 speed) I havent tried the esata I just prefer options and have only used USB 3.0. This unit has huge issues on a 3.1 port, will not consistently stay mounted, has a garbage read/write, the power cable failed, and Ive tried other USB cables without luck. A firmware update has not changed the behavior. Im not sure how the device went from issue free to borderline useless and a risk to my data in 6 months, but I refuse to even bother with a warranty. Startech makes good products and I trusted them but my unit has really made me feel like I might as well have thrown away $200+. Not looking for compensation, as Ill find a way to fix this myself. Just wish to make other buyers aware this thing may act up, and if it does dont bother troubleshooting just straight up return it. Overall build is solid otherwise. Its a product I was in love with until maybe a month ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty fast box!Bought this one just last week. It was the only one with JMicron 567 which has a 6Gbit eSATA bus.Performance difference between USB3 and and eSATA is negligeable. In contrast to the earlier model I bought, this one has proper hard drive cooling.It works seamlessley with Linux and Windows.Only issues I had:-Linux recognises drives in different order from numbering on enclosure. So I stuck a label with correct numbering on.-Allthough the trays have light-carriers alongside to cater for individual drive status leds, no leds are mounted in the backplane. So the only indicator are the drive activity leds on the front panel.
