[Amazon.ca] ORICO M.2 SSD USB 3.1 (non-NVMe) USB SSD Enclosure - $19 (*DEAD*)

Do note, that this is not an NVMe enclosure but to turn your old M.2 SSD lying around into a fast USB drive.

People already have M2 laying around !!

I still have the older version installed in my laptop.

Only things I need enclosure for are the HDD that I keep taking out of my old laptops.
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

Yup, be careful. This enclosure doesn't support PCIe M.2 drives, which are the most common type available now.

The only drives I have laying around are 2.5" SATA. I've even got a 128GB OCZ Vertex 3 (remember those?)
RFD is not just for cheapskates. Those who want their expensive toys don't want to pay full price either.

Orico is a really great japanese brand for enclosures, and I've never heard of "Ugreen". Also not NVMe

NVMe one's double the price. Fin pattern acts as a heatsink

you'd be the only kid on the block with a 3500mb/s flash drive

UGREEN is pretty common for various products on amazon....

Orico is a Chinese company, I would say their enclosures are just ok, but looking good.

Ugreen /“绿联” (in Chinese) is another Chinese company, which offers tech accessories like charging cables, power adapters and hdd enclousures.

And also, the product in your post won't give you "3500mb/s", or you meant 3500MB/s ? as it states "Up to 10Gbps with UASP: ORICO M.2 nvme ssd external case adopts Realtek RTL9210 control chip, with UASP acceleration protocol and USB3.1 GEN2 Type-C output interface, reach up to 900+ MB/S write/read speed matched with your M.2 NVMe SSD."

Oh you're right... for some reason I thought they were Japenese, the name sounded like it

I'd really love a deal on this ASUS ROG STRIX NVMe USB 3.2 enclosure... except it's $78!
https://www.amazon.ca/ROG-Arion-Aluminu ... ef=sr_1_36

this one for sure can go up to 3500mb/s. it's even got RGB lighting that can sync up to games

Some Chinese companies do play with their names, and make people believe they are from Japan, Germany or whatever. Unfortunately, Orico seems to be one of them.

The ROG enclosure is a very good stuff, but the price is not for me...And again, feeling bad to say, this enclosure is not going to give you 3500MB/S, since USB 3.2 Gen 2 has capped the speed at 10Gbps, and it will probably get you 950MB/S or something like that, in reality.

If you are looking for something more than 900+ MB/S, check those with thunderbolt 3. And yes, they are quite expensive, and they do get pretty hot.
