Plugable has launched the 10Gb USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen 2) NVMe SSD Enclosure, a high performance NVMe enclosure ($69.99) with a tool-free, spring-loaded design for inserting and removing a compatible SSD, along with thermal management to maximize performance and device lifespan.
With a slim profile, a rugged aluminum body for improved heat dissipation, and USB Type-A and Type-C host compatibility, the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure is a solution for safeguarding SSDs when moving from the workplace to the home office and achieving maximum transfer performance speeds on PCs, Macs and Linux devices.
Unlike other NVMe enclosures that need screwdrivers to secure the SSD in place, the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure enables opening the enclosure using a slide-lock, then gently aligning the NVMe notch into the socket and securing it in place with a tensioned rubber peg. Once the SSD is secured, users slide the cover back into place and it’s ready for use.
The Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure’s aluminum body allows for peak heat dissipation. By dissipating heat while in-use, the USBC-NVMe allows SSDs to maintain high-speed transfers (up to 10Gbps) possible with the latest USB 3.1 Gen2 technology.
For example, a transfer of 1,000 8MB photos, which can take up to 40 minutes using traditional thumb drives, will only take four minutes using the USB-C NVMe populated with fast media such as the Samsung 960 EVO. Heat dissipation also extends SSD longevity, reducing the need for continuous replacement and data migration.
In order to meet the needs of professionals with diverse hardware preferences, the included USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cables allow the USB-C NVMe Enclosure to be connected to any Windows, macOS or Linux device. It is also compatible with all M.2 NVMe SSDs from manufacturers like Intel, Phison and Samsung.
