Satechi‘s US$49.99 USB-C Aluminum Tool-Free Enclosure for M.2 PCIe NVMe and SATA SSDs offers an easy tool for storing lots of data and accomplishing other tasks.

You can use it with your Mac to not only expand storage, but to upgrade systems, back up files, transfer data, and retrieve and recover data.

The Tool-Free Enclosure supports high-speed transfers up to 10Gbps M.2 NVME to USB 3.1 Gen 2 and 6Gbps speed M.2 SATA to USB 3.1 Gen 1. Its USB-C interface allows it to efficiently handle data via USB-C 3.2 Gen2 or a Thunderbolt 3/4. 

The SSD enclosure is suitable for both SATA and NVMe in sizes 2242/2260/2280, such as M.2 NVMe/SATA PCIe M key and PCIe B&M key SSD. However, you should note that the SSD file system must be supported on the host operating system to be accessible. And you may have to format your media before using it.

There are several things to like about the SSD Enclosure’s design:

° Its aluminum body is sturdy and designed to provide heat dissipation to prevent gadgets from overheating. 

° With its plug-and-play design, you don’t have to fiddle with extra drivers or installation.

° It’s completely silent. 

You should note that you can get similar 10Gbps NVMe drive enclosures from Anker or SABRENT for $30-$40. . However, if you want to use multiple NVMe drives, the ease-of-use of the tool-free enclosure from Satechi is probably worth the extra 10 bucks.
