Will this work with an iPad Pro when used with a USB-C adapter?

Only 10Gbps support...so if you have the 970 evo (or equivalent aka 3500Mbps), this enclosure will not suffice unless you're happy with getting 1/3rd speeds of what you paid for(1000Gbps)....what you want is the 40Gbps model and a computer that supports thunderbolt 3 (all usb-c are not thunderbolt 3...2018+ MacBook pros I believe all have 40Gbps support)

TLDR: Check your NVME drive speeds before you buy! If it's slower than 10Gbps, this will suffice, otherwise don't buy!

Yes if you put an nvme drive in it. Or buy a USB drive. Or SD card. or bring your computer to your friends house. I'm guessing you're asking because you have a desktop though...

Edit:meant to reply to above.

Anyone tried this with a PS4 pro/xb1x? I'm thinking of adding a cheap 256g nvme drive externally to play on one of the above two consoles. How big of an improvement would this be as opposed to having an 850 Evo installed inside?

Do you have a link for a good 40Gbps model? What's a good pairing for NVME drive + enclosure that takes advantage of all 40Gbps, to be used with MacBook Pro 16"?

Thanks for heads up. However, the 40Gbps models I'm seeing are all around $140+. That's kind of nuts if the enclosure costs as much or more than the drive that goes in it! Know of any decently priced ones?

I got one on the last deal. The m.2 has enough room when installed to come out of the connector. The usb-c connector doesn't hold real tight either. It is ok for transferring files but not a mobile solution.

Be prepared to spend over $100, and a good drive would be the exact one they just mentioned, such as 970 pro

Not a huge difference between internal and USB 3 external. But also be aware that SSD doesn't speed up console loading as much as it does on PC, look up the Digital Foundry videos on youtube.

If you're looking at this for $35 without a drive included, consider getting a Samsung T5 or ADATA external SSD for $60-80 for 500GB since the consoles won't be able to get anywhere near NVMe speeds anyways.

Right. I currently use the 500gb 850 Evo internally. So I guess there's no point of an upgrade at this juncture.

It depends on what you're trying to do. If you just want to store data to transfer it to a computer while avoid data caps, this is probably a bit overkill (since you'd have to buy an NVME drive on top of it; this is just an enclosure and would do nothing for you on its own). NVME drives are significantly faster than USB flash drives and SATA drives (albeit physically smaller than the latter and more expensive than both), but if you are just transferring data between devices anyways, I'm not sure if you would value speed over data capacity.

If you're planning to use this as a boot device (e.g. run Windows directly from the drive), and then transfer the drive to your desktop when you're at home, then something like this might work quite nicely. It's worth noting that if you're planning this that you might need a similar hardware profile between computers that are booting from the drive.
