Turn a 7mm high 2.5in SATA III SSD/HDD into a UASP-supported USB 3.0 External Drive. This slim, pocket-sized drive enclosure is specifically engineered for 7mm drives, giving you the option to turn your thin hard drive or solid state drive into an external storage solution connected through UASP-enabled USB 3.0. With a thin yet durable design, the enclosure fits your 7mm drives perfectly to eliminate any drive movement inside the enclosure, which could be a problem with a looser-fitting enclosure.

To help save you time transferring data to and from your 7mm SSD or HDD, this UASP-enabled enclosure supports transfer speeds up to 70% faster than traditional USB 3.0, when used with a UASP-enabled host computer.

Plus, the enclosure is USB-powered, so you don't have to carry a power adapter with you, giving you one less thing to pack when you're traveling.

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.

Reviewed by Steve Browning on 03/11/2014
This is a very small, slim enclosure, and it was very easy to mount the drive - no tools required. However, this is a very slow enclosure, in spite of what the blurb says. I tested it with a Crucial SSD, and it took 13 minutes to transfer 31GB of data (1GB per 25 seconds). Then I put the same SSD in an Icy Box enclosure (also from BT), and the same transfer took just 2 minutes 10 seconds (1GB every 4.2 seconds). And the Icy Box is cheaper, and looks cooler, though it is bigger. If you need speed, buy the Icy Box. But if speed isn't an issue and you need the enclosure to be the smallest it possibly can be, then this might be OK for you.
