Questions & Answers

LN69251 - External Interface of Hard Drive Enclosure

In the Technical Specification you state its External Interface is USB 3,0 but in the description it says USB 3.1. There is quite a big difference so which is it? Also - All your Hard Drive Enclosures for USB 3.1 look to be in the USB 3,0 section - is that an error or what? I have an Asus Z170-K motherboard, is this enclosure and the supplied cable compatible, to transfer at 10gbs/s?
