The Leopard 2.5" USB 3.1 Type-C HDD/SSD Enclosure from HornetTek is built for users who want to spend less time waiting around and more time being productive. By supporting USB 3.1, it can handle data transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s so you can quickly access as well as transfer data between devices. This enclosure supports up to one 9.5 mm SATA I, II, or III hard drive or solid-state drive, and has a LED indicator to notify you when it's on or currently active. If you're using a solid-state drive, you could run into a bottleneck by using a SATA III connection, which only supports up to 6 Gb/s. Therefore, with USB 3.1, you'll be able to better utilize the performance provided by SSDs. Additionally, the included adapter ensures compatibility with newer USB Type-C equipped devices. This enclosure is plug-and-play compatible and requires no driver installations. Once you mount a drive, plug it in and it'll be ready to go.
