Product Overview The SAT2510U3REM Removable 2.5" SATA HDD Backup System/Mobile Rack turns a 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD drive into a removable hard drive that can also be used externally as a normal USB 3.0 enclosure.

This 2.5" SATA removable hard drive bay can be mounted into any 3.5" or 5.25" front bay, to provide a hot-swap capable mobile rack. Drives can then be easily installed and removed from the computer system without having to open the computer case every time, providing a convenient method of creating backups that can then be removed for safe keeping/archiving.

When outside of the drive bay, the enclosure can be used as a standard external USB 3.0 hard drive with up to 5 Gbps of data transfer bandwidth (10x more than USB 2.0). This makes the removable 2.5" hard drive bay an excellent accessory for people working with very large files and need to take them on the road. Features • Front-mount drive bay design, installs into any standard 3.5" or 5.25" bay
• Unique enclosure style design provides the option to use as an internal mobile rack or an external USB 3.0 enclosure
• Push-button drive ejection from the front-mount bay
• Flammability rating of UL 94 V-0
• Durable aluminum construction (drive enclosure)
• Compatible with SATA revision 1/2/3 (1.5/3.0/6.0 Gbps) drives
• Supports 2.5" form factor SATA hard drives (HDD) and solid state drives (SSD)

Reviews Removable 2.5" SATA HDD Hard Drive Enclosure/Backup System/Mobile Rack for 3.5/5.25" is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful, but pricey and flawed In the old days, when USB2 ruled the world and the largest 2.5" hard drive on the market was a massive 250GB, there was the Icy Box IB-266StUSD-B, an external 2.5" disc enclosure and docking tray. You could use the enclosure as a portable USB device or you could slide it into the tray (mounted in a PC) and have the benefit of a safe housing attached via a fast SATA connection. The combination of tray and enclosure was very neat and extremely convenient. More than *6* years after the introduction of USB3, Startech has introduced the equivalent device for USB3. A strong metal enclosure which has connectors for USB3 (micro-B) and SATA (standard dual connector for power and data), a docking tray which can be mounted in a 3.5" bay and an outer tray which can be mounted in a 5.25" bay. Unfortunately the device is not without flaws. The most serious is that it does not work properly with my brand new (and extremely expensive) 4TB SSD drive, which I bought to allow me to carry all my data around without worrying about mechanical damage. Using a 7 year old motherboard, all is well, but with 4 more recent boards (2x Z97, 2x Z170) there are problems - the BIOS fails to detect the drive and detection inside both Windows and Linux is extremely unreliable. It is worth noting that with all 5 motherboards the SSD works fine if it is connected directly to the board rather than via the enclosure and tray. Matters are made worse by the fact that the outer tray which Startech provides to allow you to mount the device in a 5.25" bay has mounting holes which accept only pins and not screws, and the large eject knob on the main tray protrudes so far that on cases which have a door in front of the drive bays, that door cannot be closed. The final insult is that whereas the Icy Box device cost a touch over £15, Startech sees fit to charge more than £50 for its' more recent equivalent. This could and should have been the sort of device which makes you feel happy to own because of the convenience it offers. Instead, it is something which makes me grit my teeth and wonder whether I ever again want to buy something made by Startech.
