Connected with the Future
The USB 3.0 interface on this external enclosure for 2.5" SATA HDDs permits the fastest data transfer rates. Since USB 3.0 has a bandwidth that is about 10 times larger than USB 2.0 and around 1.5 times faster than SATA, the ICY BOX IB-250StU3-B/-BH can reach the super-fast transfer rates in connection with a host and cable that support the USB 3.0 standard.
Since USB 3.0 is downwards compatible, the ICY BOX IB-250StU3-B/BH can function well with older USB 2.0 devices. However, only in a USB 2.0 bandwidth. The data is well protected thanks to the solid aluminum enclosure. The used materials are not only good looking, but the heat dissipation is also very good, which allows a longer life span for the used HDDs/SSDs.
