Lets you read, write or transfer data between a portable M.2 NVMe or SATA SSD and your computer's USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port. Ideal for storing a video game library
Features | Connect a High-Performance External Drive to Your Computer's USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 Port
When the hard drive on your computer is not large enough to hold your entire video game library, the U457-1M2-NVME-L helps you add external storage and access files stashed on NVMe drives. This dependable gaming enclosure adapter allows you to connect an M.2 NVMe (non-volatile memory express) or SATA SSD (solid state drive) to your computer's USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port.
Transfers Data at Fast USB 3.2 Gen 2 Speeds with UASP Support
This adapter supports USB 3.2 Gen 2 data transfer rates up to 10 Gbps to give you faster data storage, retrieval and backup capacity. It reads data up to 70 percent faster and writes up to 40 percent faster when connected to a UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) host controller. The enclosure is backward compatible with previous USB generations, allowing you to use it with older equipment. It works with Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems.
Ideal for Static Gaming Computer Installations or Gaming on the Go
Storing, managing and accessing your video game library on external NVMe or SSD allows for more flexibility, smoother operation and less time spent on loading screens than traditional internal HDD (hard disk drive). Alternating RGB (red/green/blue) LED lighting fits the popular modern gaming aesthetic seen on mice, keyboards, computer towers and other aspects of computer gaming installations. The slim aluminum case fits easily into your laptop bag or backpack so you can take it with you wherever you go.
Compatible with a Variety of M.2 NVMe or SATA SSD Hard Drives
The U457-1M2-NVME-L is compatible with a wide range of external storage drives and sizes, including 2230, 2242, 2260 and 2280 SSD. It is compatible with M-Key, B+M Key (SATA) and B+M Key (NVMe) SSD types. A blue LED on the front panel indicates data is transferring properly.
Just Plug and Play with No Software or Power Supply Required
The enclosure works right out of the box. Simply open the enclosure with the included mini screwdriver, insert your M.2 NVME or SATA SSD drive (not included), and plug the enclosure into the host computer's USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 port with the included USB-C cable. Bright LEDs illuminate as soon as the device is connected. No software, drivers or external power supply is required.
