Compact in size but big on performance, this dual-bay enclosure provides powerful external data storage, with ultra-fast data transfer speeds and configurable RAID modes. It’s ideal for small business and home office applications, or top-performing workstations for graphic designers, engineers and other business professionals.

High-capacity storage in a compact design

Create a high-capacity, external data storage solution with support for two 2.5” SSDs/HDDs in a wide range of sizes from 5 to 12.5mm. Tested for compatibility with capacities up to 4TB at 7200 RPM, this aluminum enclosure delivers fast file transfer rates with USB 3.1 Gen 2 performance. It supports SATA I, II and III and is enhanced with UASP to maximize the performance and speed of your SATA III drives. It even has a fan, with built-in speed control, to keep things running smoothly.

Harness the speed of USB 3.1 Gen 2

USB 3.1 Gen 2 gives you greater bandwidth and speed, supporting transfer rates of up to 10Gbps - twice the speed of USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) technology. It lets you leverage the high performance of the latest SSDs and hard drives while alleviating bottlenecks in your data transfers.

Includes two USB cables for versatility

The dual-bay drive enclosure comes with two USB cables for flexible use with the latest laptops and tablets equipped with a USB-C™ port, as well as legacy devices. It includes both USB-C to Micro B and USB-A to Micro B cables. The 2-bay enclosure is also compatible with a Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C port.

Achieve enhanced performance through RAID

Through RAID 0 support, the dual-bay enclosure lets you maximize the performance of your SATA III SSDs to achieve greater file transfer speeds. The dual-bay enclosure also supports RAID 1, Big (Spanning or Concatenation) and JBOD. With multiple RAID options, you can gain increased storage size, performance, or redundancy.

The enclosure is OS independent, requiring no additional software or drivers. The S252BU313R is backed by a StarTech 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

  • Worked great for a lil bit
    Reviewed by derikdark - July 23, 2021

    Bought this a few months ago, almost a year and it worked great. Now it does not show up when I plug it in no matter what I do with it. (Windows 10, Windows 11). At first every time I plugged it in my mouse cursor would creep all over the screen. As soon as I unplugged this device my cursor would go back to normal. THERE ARE NO DRIVERS THAT I CAN FIND!

  • Slow on USB 3.0
    Reviewed by Microking4u - March 24, 2018

    Should be getting close to 1Gbps with 2x SSD drives Raid 0, only getting around 250Mbps transfer speeds on USB 3.0. Disappointing!
