TRENDnet Launches New USB 3.0 Storage Enclosures

 

TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the 3.5" USB 3.0 External Enclosure, model TU3-S35, and 2.5" USB 3.0 External Enclosure, model TU3-S25. Save time by storing and transferring content at blazing fast 5Gbps USB 3.0 speeds-10 times faster than USB 2.0 enclosures.

 

TRENDnet's 3.5" USB 3.0 External Enclosure, model TU3-S35, supports one 3.5" SATA I or II hard disk drive with storage capacities in excess of one Terabyte (hard drive sold separately). Install a SATA I or II hard drive and connect the enclosure to a 5Gbps USB 3.0 port on your computer. The included USB 3.0 Type A connector is backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports. Large cooling vents and the aluminum housing cool the enclosed hard drive, and an included mounting stand saves desk space.

"When testing computers with USB 3.0 ports, we recorded an average 200% increase in performance as compared to a USB 2.0 connection. This results in significant time savings when transferring large files."

 

TRENDnet's 3.5" USB 3.0 External Enclosure, model TU3-S35, will be available from online and retail partners shortly.

 

The MSRP for the TU3-S35 is U.S. $79.99.
