A designed enclosure from Thermaltake – the BlacX ST0005U -- offers convenience and high performance. Supports any 2.5” and 3.5” SATA hard drives up to 3TB, the ST0005U turns Serial ATA hard drive into an external USB 2.0-and-eSATA storage device.

The BlacX ST0005U features eSATA (external Serial ATA) and USB 2.0 interfaces offering speeds up to 3Gbps or 480Mbits per second, respectively.

Compatibility with both PC's and Macs makes the ST0005U adapt to multi platform environments.
