I happened to have an extra NVMe SSD laying around from an old laptop that went by the wayside, but I needed an enclosure to make it a workable storage option.

  • SSD info display — Exclusive D-Key control can switch between different pages to check SSD detailed info and select multiple functions.
  • USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C (10 Gbps) — Transfer…
