Ideal for storing digital multimedia and other demanding applications, the enclosure let's you get the most out of your hard drive, connecting to a host computer using USB 2.0 (also backward compatible with USB 1.1) for maximum data transfer rates of 480Mbps.

A truly portable solution, the external hard drive enclosure features lightweight, yet durable aluminum construction, as well as a small form factor design that fits perfectly into your pocket or notebook bag when not in use.
