This eSATA/USB Removable SATA HD Enclosure features a convenient trayless design that eliminates having to mount the hard drive in the enclosure, making it easier to access data on the fly.

Because the SAT3510BU2E drive enclosure can be connected to a host computer through either eSATA or USB, you can rely on efficient data transfer speeds (up to 1.5Gbps for eSATA, 480Mbps for USB 2.0) and quick connectivity. The enclosure is constructed to provide a durable housing for inserted drives to prevent physical damage to the drives while in transit, and features lockable front door access for added data security.

To ensure a cool operating environment, the SATA HDD enclosure provides a built-in 40mm fan that re-distributes the heat build-up generated as a result of typical hard drive operation - which is especially important for large volume storage, and faster spinning drives (i.e. 7200 RPM), as it can help keep drives running cooler, which can preserve data integrity and the drive's lifespan by reducing the chances of premature failures.


  • newegg Convenient Trayless Design The StarTech SAT3510BU2E features a convenient trayless design for quick and easy installation or removal of hard drives. Simply insert any 3.5in SATA (SATA, SATA II, SATA III) hard drive into the enclosure, close the panel door and connect the enclosure to the computer through either eSATA (external SATA) or USB. To remove the hard drive from the enclosure, simply open the panel door and pull the SATA hard drive out.
  • newegg 3.5" SATA I/II/III HDD Compatible The StarTech SAT3510BU2E enclosure is compatible with 3.5" SATA I/II/III hard drives, offering an ideal solution for your external storage needs.
  • newegg eSATA or USB 2.0 connectivity The StarTech SAT3510BU2E supports the eSATA interface for an ultra-fast data transfer speed of up to 1.5Gb/s, and USB 2.0 interface for plug-and-play connectivity.

5 out of 5 eggsGood HDD Enclosure

Pros: Used as a backup external device for 32bit-64bit Microsoft OS
- Used with 1TB WD Black (tested with other smaller HDD)
- eSata is well supported
- Cooling Fan works well
- Can test and format drives similar as if they directly connected to the motherboard

Cons: - Enclosing door feels flimsy
- Enclosing door keeps the drive snug to the connector (hoping there would be an internal clip of such)
- Cooling Fan can be loud at time
- If inserting drive into the bay in reckless manner, you may damage both devices

Other Thoughts: - Remember to switch the enclosing door to lock, otherwise you may lose your drive (may/will slide out)
- Remember to add proper file format on your drive
- Satisfied with this purchase

5 out of 5 eggsworks for me

Pros: Well thought-out design. Well ventilated. Installation a breeze--no screw drivers needed. Compatible with both IDE and SATA drives.

Cons: The 80mm fan is an overkill, which makes it emit a whining noise. A smaller fan would do the job just as well. Note that only the enclosure is made of aluminum, the hard drive rack inside is made of plastic.

Other Thoughts: I also have a Vantec NexStar enclosure, which is terrific. But mine is SATA compatible only and it doesn't have a fan, and it's much harder to install. I got the Vantec for $35, if I remember correctly. I bought two of the StarTech enclosures for $33 each, which is definitely a steal with all these features.

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK!

Pros: Trayless design, eSATA

Cons: VERY poor quality. Couldn't install a drive because the connector in the case was crooked. It also doesn't use the newer StarTech frictionless connector. The slot for the drive doesn't fit the drive very well and could allow miss-alignment even if the connector wasn't crooked. Don't buy it.

Other Thoughts: New Egg is great as usual. No problem with the RMA

1 out of 5 eggsDOA...

Pros: - Sleek look and built to stand vertical.
- Easy installation of hard drive.

Cons: Unit was DOA and had a crack along one of the corners. Had to RMA this one. I changed my mind and decided to go with a different HDD enclosure.
