Adding a hard drive to your system has always been a choice between the hassle of opening your system and installing a drive or dealing with the slower speeds from external hard drives. Now you can get the best of both worlds with internal desktop drive speeds and the ease of use of an external drive with this USB 3.0 hard drive enclosure from Monoprice!
While USB 3.0 external drives can be a bit pricey, you can easily assemble your own external drive using this drive enclosure and any 3.5" SATA 1.5 Gbps or SATA 3 Gbps hard drive (up to 2 TB capacity). It is fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0/1.1 ports and requires no software or driver installation, so you can use it on any computer or device capable of using external USB storage.
The enclosure uses the Asmedia USB 3.0 to SATA chipset, one of the most respected chipsets available for external enclosures. The enclosure is made of high quality aluminum to maximize the dissipation of damaging heat away from the hard drive without the need for noisy fans.
3.5" SATA drive not included!
