Sata 3 USB 3.0 enclosure

Hi,
I just purchased an SSD to use as an external drive, however I am struggling to find an enclosure for it that is both SATA 3 and USB 3.0 - I don't really understand the point of having one and not the other. Quite a few of the. USB 3.0 ones are Sata 2, but still advertise speeds of 5 Gbps which I don't understand how they can get away with when Sata 2 is limited to 3 Gbps.

Anyone know of any affordable ones that have both?

Cheers

  1. Found this:

    SATA-3 internal interface, USB3. However you have to watch out for the height of your SSD - some SSD's are 9mm while others are 7.5mm height.

    Check your SSD product details for the height.

    If you can't order from that site - just search your local region for that product/model number.
