      Came without the cover
      Without the cover the storage drive is exposed. I wish it was sent right.

      Great enclosure, fast and supports trim!
      Works great with an 850 evo samsung ssd. Getting full read/write speeds and it's one of the only enclosures to support trim, no longer do i have to deal with speed degradation due to other enclosures not supporting it.

      Weird shape, but nice performance
      Tested it with samsung evo 860 2tb. Performance is top notch, though i don't really like the form and port selection. I wish that it had usb c connector instead of micro b. I guess that it's so thick and short because control board is actually on the bottom of adapter, not on the same side as in most enclosures. Not sure, if it affects performance or manufacturing process, but i wish it was thinner.

      Durable, works fast
      Very pleased with device. Needed to access data fromfailed laptop for client and it gave me the simple and fast access i needed to it. Very quick to install m.2 ssd in it and then plugged it in and started copying data off!

      Decent hardware, not so great enclosure
      As others have mentioned the side plates (that you unscrew) don't really line up well to the chassis. Not only that but once the plates are in place... Good luck getting them off. I have the screws out and for the life of me cannot access my ssd now. I'm trying everything except banging it on my desk in hopes to not damage it! Aside from that it worked great. Fast transfer speeds to ssd and all. Wish the case was better engineered/machined.

      Confusing - not nvme compatible
      Please double check what you are buying. 99% of the time this will not be for you or your samsung new cool nvme.

      "frequently bought together" sure. "works together?" no.
      Outletpc recommended this to go with the samsung 960evo drive, as we were intending it to be an external drive. This device doesn't work with the 960evo. Don't accept outletpc recommendation!

      Not m2 compatible
      Does not work with samsung 970evo nvme pci-e ssd.

      Good enough for professional use.
      Works well enough that my employer is now purchasing them for data recoveries in our asset depot. With more laptops using m.2 sata drives, this thing is becoming less optional and more necessity. - expected transfer rates. - no heat issues. - the pcb slides into the enclosure along extruded rails and is a good fit. Minimal noise from movement. - for frequent access you can leave one end open and use a rubber band to keep the pcb in place. It's not the most elegant solution, but when you put a new drive in 5+ times a day, it's definite more convenient... As well safer than leaving the pcb sitting outside of the case.
