I have been using this for last 6 months to do backups

https://www.amazon.com/Inateck-NVMe-Enclosure-FE2026-Space/dp/B097DKC4CL/

Haven’t had any problems except it does heat up with sustained writes as in a backup. I don’t know if something else will work better. But the data transfers have been very reliable and fast. It was compact for traveling and had USB-C.

The heat pads included in these things dont seem to help much.

If you run these things with sustained activity they have a version with a bit more surface area with an extruded aluminum external surface.

It's this one: https://slickdeals.net/f/15968899-chase-offers-ymmv-20-cashback-at-bestbuy

Reading the comments there, it seems targeted with no specific pattern on the card; some people get it, others get 10% back, and yet others get nothing.



PCIe gen4 drives are overkill to use as external drives since PCIe gen3 drives already exceed the fastest USB 3.1/3.2/Thunderbolt 2 speeds.

Personally I use the SABRENT USB 3.2 Type-C Tool-Free Enclosure for M.2 PCIe NVMe and SATA SSDs (EC-SNVE) (https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Type-C-Tool-Free-Enclosure-EC-SNVE/dp/B08RVC6F9Y/) because:
- it's cost-effective,
- it's a clamshell design that allows for better heat transfer than the other popular designs that have the drive "slide" into the enclosure, and
- it's tool-less, which makes swapping out drives quick and easy.

Just a heads up if buy this for a PS5, that a heatsink is highly recommended. I believe they can be had pretty cheap on Amazon.

Is this specific Chase Cards or targeted offer? I have a Chase Freedom (regular) and do not see this offer.

People have reported the new cusomer discount doesn't work on the sale item.

But whether you get that discount or not, KC3000 is still a little cheaper than this one and the 176 layer NAND in the KC3000 gives better write speeds than this one.

It works on non sales item. The 1TB is not on sales at this time. Only the 2TB is on sales

Ah, good point. Then the Kingston for sure as long as it is available.

I would recommend the WD though for laptop use.

Would be nice if they did more of this in q4.. most people's budgets are screwed until then.
