10gbps == ~10k (10,000) mbps... 🤣

Also 10gbps is gigabits, not gigabytes (8:1 ratio) so 1000mbps (as you mention) would be 125Megabytes per second(MB/s), which is not even fast at all....why would they have cards for 300MB/s if the bus only supports 125MB/s haha so it's actually 1200MB/s

Holy crap, the math so far in this thread, along with your comment, is as incredible as it is wrong.

8 bits = 1 Byte
1 gigabit = 1024 megabits
1 GigaByte = 1024 MegaBytes

10gbps(gigabits per second) =
1.25 GBps(GigaBytes per second) =
10,240 mbps(megabits per second) =
1280 MBps(MegaBytes per second)


Also, USB 3.1 Gen 2 = USB 3.2 Gen 2 = 10gbps theoretical limit.

USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 = 20gbps. Yes, it is a super dumb and confusing naming scheme. Thanks for thinking that immediately upon reading this.

No this is in no way false advertising.

If buying this for long term storage, use a cheaper TLC drive or a QLC drive. If you are simply using it for installs and transfers, buy whatever drive you damn well please for the system it's going into. From a reliability to cost perspective, as someone with about 150 nvme drives with customers and in my own systems now, don't waste your money on a Samsung drive that is double the freaking cost of the sabrent, silicon power, inland, and HP options. I have several Samsung 970 evo and I have several of those. The Samsung are only worth a 30% premium at the most, not the current 85%+ premium.

If anyone grabbed the 500GB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe that was just on the FP, you can make it an external with this I believe. Good price, repped.

Not sure why you would put such a fast drive into this enclosure as the drive will be bottlenecked by usb gen 2 speeds (10mbps)
This is not usb 2.0. It's USB 3.0 Gen 2 or USB 3.2 which is 10 gbps.

And?
10gbps translates to 1000mbps max w/r speeds for the SSD

970 EVO 500gb through PCIe reaches 3400 / 2300 mbps w/r speeds. With this enclosure it'll be capped at 1000mbps for both.

Only thunderbolt enclosures can (almost) fully utilize the speed of such fast drives.
You're better off putting in an Intel 660p or some other cheaper drive inside it.


edit: meant to say usb 3 gen 2 btw, perhaps that was a bit confusing
You mention 10 mbps......

It has a thermal pad and aluminum casing [ssl-images-amazon.com], so it should dissipate heat fairly well.

Typically, on these new nvme enclosures, any m.2 nvme drive is compatible.

That is not to say the drive will operate at it's maximum speed. There are limits to the USB interface.
