With its sleek, compact design and blazing data transfer speeds of over 300 Mbps, this convenient enclosure lets you access your data or upgrade your computer faster than ever.

What kind of systems use mSATA modules?
Many ultrabook computers use mSATA SSDs as a superfast, super small drive that can wake up in a blink and provide fantastic performance. But mSATA drives are not only used in super thin, sleek ultrabooks.
Many newer laptops and desktops from 2011 onwards, have mSATA slots, and these slots can be upgraded with an mSATA module and used as a super fast boot drive and cache for a slower but higher capacity, rotating hard drive. The result, a system that can run up to three times faster on the tasks that matter most: opening apps, copying files and multitasking, giving you the best of both worlds, a large hard drive for data storage and a speedy SSD boot drive for your operating system and programs.
