I have the USB 3.1 M.2 NVMe Enclosure (the one in first picture but I bought the black one...so the not the tool less version to be clear) and installed a HP EX920 512GB. The most impressive thing about it is the case itself. It's not some flimsy thin metal case, it's a block of aluminum that's been hogged out to accommodate the NVMe. Come with strips of heat transfer "tape" so that the NVMe has physical contact with the case to dissipate heat. It's a hefty case weight wise, pretty sure you could use it as a minor weapon. So far, the drive has never gotten that hot. Just warm. The thin flimsy case I replaced used to get pretty hot even when I wasn't writing/reading files. There's a reason why these cost more than those thin "hollow" cases.

Speed wise, using Windows 10 with an internal NVMe SSD on my PC, Large singles files (12GB+ in my testing) get 330 MB/s straight through (no dips) using either the built-in Windows 10 copy function or using TeraCopy (3.26 which is a little buggy).

Doing a multi-file copy (mostly JPGs and RAWs from a 40MP camera) that was 43GB total, I got about 290-305 MB/s.

Pretty happy with this case. The only minor issue I had is with the screws/threading. It's pretty fine and it is possible to cross thread so make sure when you're screw together the case, that you're screw isn't angled. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a solid case.
I got the USB 3.2 version the last time this was on sale, and speeds cap out at 9xx Mbps. so if you want to stick a drive faster than 1000mbps, don't bother.

with that being said, it works great for everything under 1gbps

For anyone looking for a good TB3 option, this $79 one ships at the end of September and claims to deliver 1553MB/s real-world performance if your drive is fast enough: https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/e...nderbolt-3

I pre-ordered it so I could finally have a fast drive on my 2019 iMac 27" with a crappy 1TB Fusion.

you can get a flimsy one for $10 or you can get this, which is a very nicely milled out of solid aluminum

Looks like the promo codes don't work for any of the first 3.

Good write up. The case being used as a heat sink is important. You can burn your finger tips on quite a few USB 3 devices using a flimsy case or on a thumb drive in general.

I seriously doubt that. More likely it is extruded aluminum with only minimal machining done.
With a JMicron JSM583 chipset, these are over-priced.
I'll stick with Realtek RTL9210 based devices.

The tool free one is awesome for cloning NVME drives. I use it all the time to upgrade laptops.
