70% faster than traditional USB 3.0, with UASP

Save time in the field, by storing and transferring content quickly. Enhanced with UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol), this rugged drive enclosure performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over conventional USB 3.0, when paired with a UASP-enabled host controller.

UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. In testing UASP performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.

At the same peak in testing UASP also shows an 80% reduction in required processor resources.

Testing results were obtained using an Intel® Ivy Bridge system, a UASP enabled enclosure, and a SATA III (6Gbps) solid state drive.
