I have been looking for a good NVME USB-C enclosure with a decent heatsink and found these on ebay with JMicron and Realtek chipsets. According to specs, it looks like it is a good deal to me since it comes with USA warranty.

Could you elaborate on why this is considered "with a decent heatsink"? Not to judge or anything but really want to know. Because I don't see anything mentioning the heat will be conducted from SSD / circuit board to the enclosure.

Enclosure design makes itself is a big heatsink.

But the issue being if heat is not properly conducted from SSD to the enclosure, the big heatsink won't do much better than any non-heatsink enclosure.

Here is my NVME drive inside the enclosure. It runs very cool though. Looks like I cannot add any picture to this reply, but added to the thread.

I remember when Hard drive enclosures were very very cheap or (FAR) Free after rebate even.
How are they justifying these prices these days, they are so much smaller even $30 is a slick deal?? Supply an demand??

Yeah, true. I still have some IDE and SATA laptop hard drive enclosures I bought free after rebates intact in their box laugh out loud

I think those good old days are gone while CompUSA and Circuit City around that we could have been even doing double deep rebates Applause

I have a few of these sold under different brand names, you use a thermal pad that mates the ssd and enclosure. They seem to work fine, sustained transfers do not drop performance. Only thing is I've gotten these for $25 on Amazon.

Same brand, same model? K1686P or K1687P?

Looking at the case again it is a different enclosure, same JMS583 chipset.

https://www.amazon.com/TDBT-Enclo...B07TJT6W8K

Also bought one made by Icy box for around the same on sale. And just a quick search I see some Realtek chipset ones for around $25. This one is $20.

Good for marketing. Air gap the drive from the enclosure, make the enclosure thick with fins, then people leave reviews of how the enclosure runs cooler than other drives.

Or maybe they include thermal putty like other brands and it actually does use the enclosure as a heatsink.
