    Performance

    USB 3.1 Gen 2 and NVMe SSDs let us exceed SATA III SSD performance! The Plugable USBC-NVME M.2 NVMe Enclosure is capable of raw read and write speeds up to 10 Gbps, compared to 6 Gbps with traditional SSDs.

    Performance depends on the capabilities of your NVMe SSD and host computer. 10Gbps connection requires USB 3.1 Gen 2 on the host computer; NVMe SSDs can run very hot and older drives may throttle, reducing speed, as they get hot. Thermal throttleing is especially noticable in large file transfers on older generation media.

    Form Factor

    Our USBC-NVME's aluminum cover provides for airflow to the SSD and acts as a heatsink with fins for improved surface area and heat disipation. The adapter fits easily in a pocket or laptop bag and comes with removable USB Type-C and USB Type-A cables.

    Please Note: The aluminum cover radiates heat from the NVMe SSD and can get warm to the touch, please be careful when using the SSD for prolonged file transfers and if necessary, allow the enclosure to cool before handling.

    Compatibility

    Native compatibility with Windows, Mac, and Linux, file system support depends on operating system. Compatible with M.2 NVMe SSDs in the 2280, 2260, 2242, and 2230 formfactors with tooless installation. Supports USB, USBC, and Thunderbolt 3 host computers.

    Not compatible with non-NVMe SSDs, or non NVMe M.2 PCIe devices. Some NVMe SSDs may have reduced performance caused by thermal throttling on large file transfers.
