What is UASP?

USB 3.1 Gen 2 is where it’s at.

I actually could use a 3.5" enclosure right now, and don't care about USB 3.1 support, but the reviews on this make it sound like both a physically unsafe place to keep a hard drive and an unreliable piece of electronics, so even for $15 it sounds like a recipe for future regret.

Edit: actually not a repost but a vertical wavlink version is the same price as well

I thought RFD spends most of its time taking 3.5 inch drives out of enclosures Face With Tears Of Joy

Good price nonetheless. Same as the 3.5 inch docking station previously posted for $15, except more permanent.

I think most people don't have USB 3.2 Gen 2 compatibility yet.

After doing more reading it seems that a mechanical 3.5” HDD you would put in an enclosure like this isn’t even fast enough to saturate USB 3.0 Gen 1 (about 400-500 MB/s).

So unless they sell 3.5” SSDs there’s no need for USB 3.0 with “USAP” even. Last I checked all SSDs are 2.5” SATA.

The cooling on this seems bad. I stick with Rosewill enclosures. They come with fans.
