Features
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. See our UASP testing results below for further details.

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.

Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Improved Performance with UASP

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.

4 out of 5 eggsIS USB 2.0 Compatible

Pros: Notice the funny micro USB 3.0 connector on the case?? The larger section is a USB2.0 port and the smaller additional section is the additional wires needed for USB 3.0. Plus this is real hard - the specifications state that it is USB 2.0 backwards capable. WOW!!
Note one other thing - USB3.0 can deliver more power on some/most ports. Therefore there is a chance that a USB 2.0 port can't run a hard drive. Some drives require just a little more power than a port can deliver. Older cases often came with a second USB cable that brought power in from a second USB port if you had a problem.

Cons: UASP not supported by all ports, and won,t really help a mechanical hard drive on USB 3.0. Great for SSD's in the right situation.

Other Thoughts: When you have a problem with hardware, always remember to learn something before typing, please!

3 out of 5 eggsNot backward USB 2.0 compatible

Pros: Wok fine and fast on USB 3.0 like spected.

Cons: Not backward USB 2.0 compatible.
usually one thinks that if USB 3.0 should be USB 2.0 comaptible but they don't said nothing in the box
SatrTech have other models that are USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatible

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, but lacking a bit.

Pros: Connects my SATA III drives via USB 3.0 as advertised. Nice read and write speeds. Portable. Just what I wanted.

Cons: USB Cable is super short.

I bought this drive so I could create a portable Linux operating system. IT DOES NOT ALLOW BOOTABLE LINUX. GRUB, GRUB2, and LILO will not be allowed to write through the enclosure's controller. This applies to GRUB and LILO for Linux OS boot ONLY.

Other Thoughts: Windows boot loaders function as intended. Pendrive Linux applications will work on this unit because it uses FAT32.

5 out of 5 eggsThis+SSD/30GB written in 2 mins !

Pros: SATAIII 6Gbps drive support
UASP - massive difference in performance vs typical USB 3.0 enclosures when used with SSD's
Less CPU Load
Small and excellent build quality.

Cons: None as long as the micro 3.0 connector holds up, which seems to be a weak point in a lot of other enclosures I've had. requires hardware support for UASP on the computer to take advantage of benifits over mass storage mode, but cant fault it for that

Other Thoughts: I have probably 25 or so various USB 2.5" drive enclosures and about 10 are USB 3.0, but this is my 1st with UASP. Im always looking to get the fastest external storage devices. With a Corsair Force GT 240GB or Samsung 840pro 256GB, this enclosure really shows what UASP can do. First thing I did was copy a 31GB Virtual machine from my 13"MBP retina. it was about a second or 2 over 2 mins!!! I am totally stunned how much of the bottleneck was eliminated by a better transfer protocol. not sure if any other advantages would translate to an old school spinning drive not maxing it out.
build quality is top notch. very sold with the drive being very snug. just barely larger than the bare drive. In fact its the smallest enclosure I have now as well as the fastest. I never liked now much larger DIY enclosures were compared to retail usb drives like WD passports and alike. well this is narrower than a last gen WD passport and only like 1cm longer.
After seeing what this can do I just got their USB3 Sata3 UASP cable adapter for other drives. I used to carry a mSATA Mushkin Atlas SDD in a USB 3.0 enclosure and thought that was fast. well this crushes it. Haven't checked IOPS through it but it feels fast enough that I could run VM's from it without a problem.
