Which 2.5" USB 3.0 enclosure offer true SATA III performance?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm thinking of buying some 2.5" USB3 enclosures, but there's so many to choose from.
I read many reviews and the results varies, some get 150mb, some get 200mb, some get 280mb, there was one review with a guy mentioning that he had other enclosure that offer true SATAIII performance of 340mb but he didn't mention which enclosure that is, does anyone know?

I prefer the link you provide is a product from amazon or newegg, that way i can confirm the performance from the user reviews.
I know you won't get the max 500mb of the ssd's performance due to the bottleneck of the sata to usb3 bridge they used in the enclosure, but as long as the performance is above 300mb during a small and short benchmark, i'm fine with it. That way, I'll know that the enclosure has a high performance bridge that truely take advantage of the SATAIII performance and the manufacturer is not cutting corners and costs on parts to cheat consumers.

Thanks

Where you plan to connect that USB 3.0 enclosure.I think that you will have to have enclosure with AS Media ASM1051 chip in it and USB 3.0 port on motherboard or pci-e card with same chip,and everything need to support UASP protocol.I saw 440mb/s.But that was on Asus Z77 board with Intel USB 3.0 in Turbo mode.
