The PNY 480gb is $32 at eBay. This is $90, that is $60 more after tax. You can almost buy 3 PNY with $90.

Why this vs component parts?

Like a WD plus NVME plus case costs the same and can grow and scale. The case ends up being long term sustainable and the drives can be moved to other computers as necessary

And that's an NVMe drive, at least twice as fast as this drive if not 4-5x depending on USB version. This deal is not slick.

You still come out a little bit ahead if you buy pny and 6x and 3x thing holds true.

So, you buy 3x pny for $90, you get 1.5x working.
If you buy wd for $90, you only get 1x working.

I agree, and that's all true, and I would use an enclosure, for sure. However there are reasons.

1.) Western Digital charges a premium, because they are highly regarded.
2.) Some people just want to buy off the shelves products, for convenience. All in one, no assembly needed. Truly plug, and play.
3.) They want one warranty, from a reputable company, they feel like they are covered if anything goes wrong.
4.) Even though nvme enclosures are easy, the less technically inclined, may be hesitant to perform the arguably simple installation

Solid perspective taking.

But legitimately, life must be difficult for people who cannot assemble a tool-less enclosure.

First time commenting and not a technical person like many of you here.

The Samsung T7 is $80. Why would one choose this over the T7? Thanks in advance!

I'm not the same person but I just went and the best I can find is just under $34. https://www.ebay.com/itm/264820030185

noob question here. On another sd thread a few days back (see link below), I saw a fierce discussion about the merits of different enclosures and their chipsets

Sabrent USB 3.1/3.2 Enclosures for M.2 NVMe SSD's: Tool-Free $29.40, Original $46
https://slickdeals.net/f/14315354-sabrent-usb-3-1-3-2-enclosures-for-m-2-nvme-ssd-s-tool-free-29-40-original-29-45-more-free-s-h#commentsBox

I also saw another thread on a tech forum soliciting user input for a
*STABLE* NVMe - USB Adapter?
https://forums.anandtech.com/thre...r.2572973/

So I didn´t feel that it was intuitive to select and buy an internal SSD as well as an enclosure. I need to buy a 1TB internal SSD and enclosure to use with my new laptop. Any suggestions on specific SSD´s and enclosures someone would recommend. Even a link to an article with recommendations would be appreciated.
