Yes you can connect to the usb c port at the front of the ps5
01-15-2022 at 06:19 AM
Yes, it should work just fine as an external drive for the PS5. You may need to format it on a computer first before it is recognized by the PS5. You should see a significant performance boost compared to other types of storage. 👍
01-21-2022 at 07:55 AM
No, I tried using this with a Samsung 980 pro NVME. The PS5 does not recognize this drive. Doesn't matter if you plug into the USB-C port in the front, or the USB-A ports in the back. I don't think any of the other commenters has even attempted to use it. They just assume it will work because there are ports.

Check reddit as there are others with issues using this enclosure and NVME drive.

Any GEN4 SSD would be fine, but if you're looking for bang for buck, I would recommend the Sabrent Rocket 1TB or 2TB or whatever size you need. They're reliably fast and a bit more affordable than the 980PRO's
01-14-2022 at 08:01 AM
Product page on Amazon already showing compatible SSDs of different sizes of course from Same Vendor as a marketing tactic.
In general you may search for 'NVMe PCIe M.2 internal SSD' while making sure to match form factor to one of three 2280, 2260 or 2242 from corresponding product details information. Recently I bought "Samsung 500GB 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 Internal SSD" if looking for other manufacturers.

You'll need to specify which SSD Write speeds you're referring to. Also, you'll need to determine how that 3.2 port is being used. For example, any m.2 SSD directly on the motherboard SHOULD write quicker than this enclosure, even if it's GEN1 .... however, if it's the first gen 2.5" SSDs then yes, this 3.2GEN2 drive should write quicker.
The general thought is gen1 550mb/s ... gen2 is usually around 1050mb/s

Yes, usb 3.2 will severely limit what gen 3 nvme ssd is capable of

Don't expect to be able to keep this plugged in 24/7. On my server I never reboot, I've had it corrupt a drive twice forcing me to do a diskpart clean to get it back. Seems to be a common problem.
I've seen a handful of these RTL9210B enclosures around the sub 25 dollar range from SSK, Inateck, Fideco. I even saw another brand for less than 20 with an active coupon.
However, most of these enclosures I've noticed are the side out design.
I went with this enclosure over the other options due to this. Sabrent works better since the top lifts off and there is less potential of damaging the heat pad.
I have two of these and they've been very stable with several hours of active usage, but I haven't tested for 24/7 usage. I highly suggest updating the firmware right away to help fix any issues.

You can find the update firmware for the chipset here:
https://www.sabrent.com/download/ec-snve/

There are newer chipset firmware not from Sabrent, but I haven't tested those out yet. There is a thread on Anandtech forums about various chipsets version firmware and where to download them. It's a long thread, but it gives a lot of details about the RTL9210 chipset and the fixes the firmware versions have made.

Hope this helps!

FYI: chipset is the Realtek RTL9210 (which is one of the, if not the, best chipsets out there).

Does the heat pad have adhesive on both sides? I plan to use this to swap m.2/nvmes for pc repair/recovery. Or should I be fine without the heat pad?

Any Gen 3 nvme drive would pair nicely. My wife uses this enclosure with a 1TB SN550 Blue and it works fine. The newer 570 is a little faster for a few more bucks.

This is a really nice enclosure. I have a different one from Alxum and this one is easier to install drives.

This lets you swap drives and upgrade in the future. But if you don't plan to swap drives often the T7 is probably good enough.
