Turn a 3.5in SATA drive into an external USB 3.0 hard drive. The SAT3510U3VGB USB 3.0 to SATA external hard drive enclosure allows almost any standard 3.5-inch internal SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD) to be made into a cost-effective external SuperSpeed USB 3.0 hard drive. With data transfer rates up to 5Gbps (10 times faster than USB 2.0), speed is no longer compromised for convenience, ease of use or portability. Large capacity drives (tested with up to 4TB) can be used to greatly enhance your computer's storage/backup capabilities. The USB 3.0 HDD Enclosure is backward compatible with USB 2.0, making it more than suitable for use with computers that don't yet have USB 3.0 ports. The external enclosure will also power down SATA drives after a period of inactivity (USB mode only) or when the PC is turned off, to help reduce power consumption and noise when not being accessed.

Constructed of sturdy, light-weight aluminum and no fans, the enclosure offers optimal and quiet cooling for even current, high-capacity hard drives - an ideal external storage solution.

4* Star Tech USB 3 SATA HDD Enclosure
Reviewed by R B Bane on 02/12/2013
Was able to download a PDF User Manual from Star Tech's web site. It proved slightly fiddly to unscrew, insert the HDD and screw the case up again. I had assumed it would be a "snap in" fit. But I suppose that screwing it in place makes it more secure. Once inside the case, plugged in and turned on, the set up worked flawlessly. My pc recognised the (inserted) HDD first time. I was then able to copy from that HDD to another external usb HDD quickly, and without fuss, and the pleasantly blue coloured LEDs let you know that things were happening. The case became a little warm after an hour's copying, but nothing serious. Apart from the slightly fiddly screws, I am very happy with it.
