Features

This compact M.2 SATA SSD enclosure lets you add highly portable data storage to any laptop or computer with a USB-C™ port - such as MacBook, Chromebook Pixel™, Dell™ XPS laptops, and many others.

Had problems with the casing

28 March 2019
Had real problems with the casing. The back plate screws did not bind into the body of the case and repeatedly fell out. Maybe a faulty unit? Suffice to say on this basis I can not recommend this product and returned it to PB for credit.

Buying this case is a decision I do not regret!

11 March 2019
If you have a spare M2 chip, then this case is for you. The case is nicely made, but it is a fraction short for the M2 chip and resulted in the end cap being slightly proud of the case. No matter, it still looks okay, but it did loose the 5th star because of this..
If you have a USB C slot, you may want to sit down when you use this case with a M2 drive, it is blistering fast!! I copied several gigs onto the drive and the transfer was so fast, I was waiting for the copy to finish, when it already had.
I am going to replace all my external drives with these cases and M2 drive combos.
