The S352BU33HR 2-Bay RAID Enclosure lets you build an external RAID array using two 3.5 SATA hard drives, and add it to your computer through USB 3.0.
For optimal performance from your SATA III drives, the external RAID enclosure supports a UASP-enabled USB 3.0 host connection, which performs up to 70% faster than conventional USB 3.0 when paired with a UASP compatible host controller. (See UASP testing results below for more detail).
The RAID enclosure also lets you connect additional USB 3.0 devices to your computer, through an integrated 2-port USB 3.0 hub conveniently mounted on the front of the enclosure. The easy-to-reach hub also has fast charging capabilities, so you can charge your iPad, smartphone or other mobile devices as quickly as you would through a direct wall outlet connection.
To help maintain safe operating temperatures for your hard drives, the 2-drive enclosure features a built-in cooling fan to ensure proper air circulation and prevent your SATA drives from over-heating.
The enclosure features an integrated hardware RAID controller, which gives you the options you need to set up the array that best suits your storage application, including JBOD, Spanning, RAID 0, and RAID 1.
To ensure compatibility with your computer system, the S352BU33HR supports all of the leading operating systems, including: Microsoft Windows (8/7/Vista/XP/Server 2008/Server 2003), Apple OSX (10.9/10.8/10.7/10.6), Linux, and Google Chrome OS.
