So what if this is a glorified enclosure. It is incredibly fast backup for my family photos and music library. I've got two of them 1TB for photos and 500GB for music. It is painless to once a month backup the changes or the entire collection. Yes transfer rates are why they advertise. 1000megabytes per second. The rgb lighting is a gimmick and when these are plugged in it makes my Aura lighting software freeze up on my Asus Strix 2070 Super graphics card, Asus TUF x570 motherboard as well as the Asus Strix Flare keyboard. The only way to infreeze it is to do a system reboot. This is clearly an asus aura software issue that I'm discussing with them. This only happen IF I go into the software to change the lighting from rainbow to something else on the Arion enclosure.
If you are wondering what I put inside these... Sabrent 1tb Nvme rocket Gen4.... Yes it's capable of much higher speeds but Im future proofing myself incase I want to swap out with my 2x 1TB Sabrent Rocket Gen4 nvme's on my motherboard.
My first pc build and I'm happy with it. These enclosures offer usb 3 gen 3.2 transfer speeds and my system takes advantage of that so backup is done in minutes not hours. They are also small so I can put them in an air tight Pelican 1200 or 1400 case along with other sensitive things and know they are air tight. Want to protect them from EMP? Then line the case with thick metal inside to completely preserve the data. Lol. Nvme doesn't have as long of a shelf life as hard drives but they are more resistant to magnetic interference and static. Anyways that's enough rambling for today. All in all I love these. Backed up and stashed them away knowing my data is safely backed up (of course in another location)!
Es un producto de gran calidad, robusto y con exelente armado, los cables USB tipo C a C y tipo C a B, son de exelente calidad, muy rápido con una ssd Kingston a2000 he logrado llegar a 90 o 100 Mb/s, la iluminación rgb de gran calidad, aunque no sé si se pueda controlar, la única pega es que comparada con una ssd T5 es más grande, nada desproporcionado, pero no cabra en un case de 4.3 pulgadas, fuera de eso exelente producto.
Ho provato veramente moltissimi case per nvme eppure questo risulta esser senz'altro il migliore sotto ogni punto di vista, infatti non soltanto è estremamente resistente, ma è anche velocissimo, logico che tutto dipende dall'hd che mettete al suo interno, ma va detto che avendone provati finora 3, devo ammettere che la velocità è sempre eccezionale, ho provato un lexar pro, un samsung 970 pro e persino un nvme black della wd ed in ogni caso la velocità di trasferimento era incredibile, il design poi è qualcosa di stupendo, veramente un gran bel prodotto. Vi sono anche i cuscinetti termici già installati all'interno del case, il quale si apre come i porta sim dei nostri smartphone con un pin che fa scattare un meccanismo di apertura interno, il case è dotato anche di un bounce che si può metter tutto intorno al case così da rinforzarne i bordi qualora cadesse, insomma, in casa asus, hanno pensato proprio a tutto, ve lo consiglio.
The enclosure has a nice weight to it, and when put together, it works well. The only issue I had was when installing Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280; I noticed the thumbscrew just barely let the backplate close. So I removed the thermal pads from the backplate and put them on the chipset. I then used a Forstner drill bit to remove just a little metal away and cleaned the backplate, making sure there were no metal shards left. After all that, the backplate closes perfectly. I'm not sure if I got a defect or some M.2 drives are slightly thicker than others. It is working correctly for me at this point, and I'm happy with it.
Got it for a good price here, but even being double the price of other enclosures it's really worth it. Awesome design, light weight and very cool aluminum case (with plenty thermal paste inside, on the lid). Really fast speeds with C to C cable. Very solid, with extra rubber case protection around the corners. Only thing is that I wouldn't trust it with the cheap plastic 'R' holder with 'Velcro'. Delivery got delayed too.
Purchased this as an upgrade from my previous usb-c nvme enclosure, and its been worth it. Using the same nmve ssd drive (just swapped it into the new enclosure) speeds jumped from ~400mb/s to just over 1000mb/s. The enclosure is also much much cooler to the touch when drive is under load. The enclosure is also MUCH larger than my previous one. You MUST used a good USB-C port to get the best speeds, on my laptop only the usb-c port gets ~1000mb/s, if plugged into a regular usb-a (usb3) port, it tops out at around 450mb/s. All in all a worth while upgrade if you are after performance.
no se si solo fue mi caso pero el tornillo que sostiene la memoria m.2 en su lugar es un poco mas grande de lo esperado y provoca que no cierre la compuerta metálica por lo que tengo que cuidar que no se caiga de su lugar. La funcionalidad es excelente y veloz pero en mi caso tuvo ese detalle, tal vez lime un poco el tornillo para permitir bien el cierre pero esperarías que esos detalles no te ocurran especialmente por el precio que estas pagando.
Looks solid and heavy built casing but unfortunately did not work with my Micron 2200S NVMe M.2 2280 Gen3 x 4 PCIe 500 GB drive. So just lying waste in closet for now. It’s a pity that I can’t use it. My drive surely works in my laptop since I removed it from there and try to put in this casing and use it. Alas. YMMV.
