Product Description
This brand new enclosure from CoolGear supports the latest USB 3.0 technology with transfer rates up 5Gbps!!*

Tired of waiting around for large file transfers on your old USB 2.0 enclosure? Then upgrade to this blazing fast USB 3.0 enclosure today! Copy HD videos in minutes not hours and stream HD video live of the disk!

Internal testing has shown this enclosure to exceed 130mb/s in synthetic benchmarks, with real-world file transfers exceeding 60mb/s. For the real-world testing we copied 100 files totalling about 50gb of data. It took just over 15 minutes to complete (15m 18s to be exact). 47.7GB/918s = 58.2MB/s
We're sure it would have gone faster if we'd had a better drive in the test computer, but we wanted the fastest drive in this enclosure for testing. Now we obviously need to get another one!

The tray is screw-less, meaning it is possible to remove the tray, install your HDD, and reinstall the tray back into the enclosure without ever needing tools. On the sides of the tray are two green handles, simple pull these open to "unlock" the tray, install your drive, and then "lock" it back into place.
