Description

Description

  • 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 aluminium 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.

Improved Performance with UASP

  • 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.

Applications

  • Re-purpose an M.2 SATA SSD as a USB 3.0 external drive
  • Carry with your laptop for a highly portable external storage solution
  • Transfer files to or from your external drive faster, by using a high-performance SATA M.2 SSD as your external drive
