Most notebooks these days come with an SSD as costs begin to plummet and it becomes easily available, not to mention offering a far better performance capability as opposed to traditional hard drives. External SSDs have yet to really catch on though, but here we are with Plugable’s latest release that might make you want to jump aboard the bandwagon. Enter the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure that lays claim to being the first high performance NVMe enclosure which boasts of a completely tool-free,
spring-loaded design when it comes to inserting and removing a compatible SSD. Oh yes, not forgetting the inclusion of advanced thermal management that will help to maximize performance as well as device lifespan.
With SSDs being slim and light, the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure also boasts of a similar sleek profile that features a rugged aluminum body on the outside for improved heat dissipation. There are two different types of USB ports included to increase the degree of compatibility: USB Type-A and Type-C. Touted to be an optimal solution when it comes to safeguarding SSDs as you bring your SSD around from home to the office or virtually anywhere else, it helps to increase productivity as you can achieve maximum transfer performance speeds on PCs, Macs and Linux devices.
What makes the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure different from other NVMe enclosures? You do not even need a single tool or screwdriver to help keep the SSD in place. It arrives with an enclosure that opens via a slide-lock, where you then gently align the NVMe notch into the socket before securing it in place using a tensioned rubber peg. Once you have secured the SSD, slide the cover back into place and it is good to go. With a rugged and durable frame, you can then toss it into a bag and bring it around wherever you go without any worry of damaging the SSD within. Expect the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure to retail for $49.95 apiece.
