Access data stored on your 2.5” SATA SSD/HDD, with support for high-capacity drives up to 15mm

This USB 3.1 Gen 2 single-drive enclosure gives you an ultra-fast, portable external storage solution for 2.5” hard drives or solid-state drives up to 15 mm in height. The enclosure provides quick access to your data wherever you go and it lets you retain your data after an upgrade to a new SSD or HDD in your computer.

Ultra-fast performance

The drive enclosure lets you leverage the high performance of the latest SSDs and HDDs. USB 3.1 Gen 2 also gives you greater bandwidth and speeds up to 10Gbps for ultra-fast access to your data. IT professionals, medical personnel, researchers, creative professionals and anyone else who needs easy access to their data on the go will benefit from this portable drive enclosure. The enclosure lets you quickly access your data, to browse your files and edit your documents.

The enclosure also provides you with easy drive access for data migration, drive cloning, and data backups so that you can safeguard your data at all times.

Versatile and compatible

Unlike most drive enclosures, which only support SATA SSDs and HDDs up to 9.5 mm in height, this enclosure is compatible with virtually all 2.5″ SATA drives up to 15 mm in height. Plus, it comes with a USB Type-C to Micro-B cable, for connecting to newer USB-C enabled laptops, tablets, and phones. A USB Type-A to Micro-B cable is also included to ensure backward compatibility with your existing USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices.

The enclosure is powered directly from the USB port on your device, which means no external power is required. For portable storage, you can tuck it away inside your laptop bag or carrying case and take it anywhere — from your home to the office, the hospital, the lab, or out in the field, so that you can access your data wherever you go.

Protection for your data

The enclosure is engineered with a sleek and durable aluminum housing to help keep your data safe and secure wherever you go. Its aluminum housing and venting help to dissipate heat and passively cool the drive in order to help prevent drive failure and data loss.

The S251BU31315 is backed by a 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
