Connect a High-Performance SATA Drive to Your Computer’s USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 Port This SATA enclosure is idea for adding external storage space when your laptop’s hard drive has no more room for your photos, videos, music and documents. The U457-025-G1-WPG lets you connect a SATA solid state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) to any device with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port, including a MacBook, Ultrabook, Chromebook, notebook, tablet or PC. It also helps you retrieve data stashed on old 2. 5-inch SATA III, II and I drives up to 2 TB. It will also support higher SATA capacities as they become available. Transfers Data at Fast USB 3. 1 Gen 1 Speeds with UASP Support This adapter supports USB 3. 1 Gen 1 data transfer rates up to 5 Gbps, which is 10 times faster than USB 2. 0, to give you more data storage, retrieval and backup capacity.
