ICY BOX with German virtues Hardworking: with USB data-transfer rates up to 5 Gbit/s. Strong: aluminium case. Ready to be of service: Hot Swap and Easy Plug and Play for fast and easy change of hard drives. Low profile: silent, as without fan. IB-318StU3-B is also working through an USB 3.0 cable or USB 2.0 cable with computer/notebook with USB 2.0/1.1 interfaces. You can upgrade your computer/notebook with an USB 3.0 PCI-card (eg ICY BOX IB-AC604/605). USB 3.0 has a 10 times higher bandwidth as USB 2.0 (5 Gbit / s to 480 Mbit/s) and theoretically 10 times higher transfer rate. In practice, the transfer rate is limited by the slower SATA interface of the hard drive (3 Gbit/s).
