The U457-025-CG2 USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) SATA SSD/HDD to USB-C Enclosure Adapter lets you connect a high-performance SATA solid state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) to a computer or laptop with a USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port. Not only does it support USB 3.1 Gen 2 data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps, but it reads data up to 70 percent faster and writes up to 40 percent faster when connected to a UASP-enabled host controller.

Recommended for storing and sharing large files, such as photos, music and video files, the U457-025-CG2 accepts 2.5-inch SATA drives up to 2 TB. You can access data on an older SATA drive, or use a new SATA drive for additional storage space.
