Turn your solid state drive into an ultra-portable pocket drive. The SM2NGFFMBU33 external USB 3.0 to M.2 (NGFF) enclosure turns your SATA M.2 solid state drive into a portable, high speed USB 3.0 drive.

Get higher external performance by using an M.2 SSD in place of a platter drive, harnessing the full potential of your USB 3.0 computer system. The enclosure supports UASP, enabling you to achieve transfer speeds up to 70% faster than traditional USB 3.0 when used with a UASP-enabled host computer.

This slim, pocket-sized SSD enclosure has been specifically engineered for mobility. The enclosure features a lightweight yet durable design, which fits easily into your pocket or laptop bag. For further convenience, the enclosure is powered entirely using the USB host bus and requires no external power adapter.

Durable aluminum construction helps to ensure your drive won't be damaged while you're on the move. Plus, to maximize heat dissipation the enclosure features specially engineered ventilation holes which help maintain a cooler operating environment for optimal performance and a longer life span for your drive.

For wide compatibility with all of the common M.2 solid state drives, the enclosure can mount multiple drive heights including: 2242, 2260, and 2280.

UASP is supported in Windows 8, Mac OSX (10.8 or above), and Linux. In testing UASP performs with a 70% faster read speed and 40% faster write speed over traditional USB 3.0 at peak performance.

At the same peak in testing UASP also shows an 80% reduction in required processor resources.

Testing results were obtained using an Intel Ivy Bridge system, a UASP enabled StarTech.com Enclosure, and a SATA III solid state drive.

StarTech.com USB 3.0 to M.2 SATA External SSD Enclosure with UASP is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor documentation and misleading product description I bought this mistake on CDW. All over CDW it is stated to use your M2 drive. I have one. It doesn't work. Only after owning the "product" do you learn of the B-key requirement. From the instructions. So no, the statement of wide M2 SSD compatibility is false. I notice no where do star tech themselves ever state any compatible model numbers. Do a search for M2 SSD with B key. Tons of useless adapters. No drives. Go ahead startech, list some models from major manufacturers that function with SM2NGFFMBU33. We will all wait here. Tons of bad reviews from people like me that bought this "adapter" that claims "wide compatibility with all of the common M.2 solid state drives. Yup another samsung owner. samsung. common. very common. Yup the samsung works in everything that is not this adapter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from M.2 2280 Form Factor - Does NOT Fit We bought this because we needed a way to adapt the M.2 SSD that come with our laptops into USB's for ease of data recovery... The M.2 does not fit into the socket.I am also unhappy with having to unscrew the thing everytime we want to change a SSD inside. Annoying
