Delock housing. M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD

Share this:

What do you do with old disks when they are no longer needed on your computer? Or maybe sometimes you take care of the computers of friends and family with some problems? You can easily get a cassette for HDD and SSD SATA, but Delock has prepared something even for SSD PCIe M.2.

It is not a problem to connect a 2.5 "SATA SSD (or HDD) via USB. Whole pockets or interfaces with SATA USB are common and cheap. M.2 SATA SSD is a bit harder. First you need to buy an adapter from M.2 SATA to 2.5 "SATA, and then you can insert the construction into a 2.5" cassette. Or immediately buy a SATA M.2 USB case, which is less common.

M.2 PCIe SSD with another USB cassette

NVMe PCIe SSD is not that easy. You can't finally use the SATA adapter. There are pockets dedicated for M.2 NVMe SSDs. There are not as many of them in stores as the 2.5 "SATA models, but the next available option is Delock 42614. Thanks to it, we can easily plug the M.2 PCIe SSD into the enclosure and connect with a USB cable to the computer.

We don't have to worry about speed, because the Delock 42614 cartridge uses the Asmedia ASM2362 controller and connects to the PC with a USB 3.1 Gen 2 cable (with type C plug). Thanks to this, the data transmission speed will be able to reach up to 10 Gb / s (fast NVMe drives, of course, repeatedly break the border around 1.25 GB / s, but as for a USB cassette it's still good possibilities).

DIY and service equipment

The Delock casing will allow for better efficiency and convenience when copying or cloning data when working with computers having M.2 NVMe SSDs, so it will definitely be a good tool on websites. It will also be useful if we already have unnecessary NVMe M.2 SSDs, because we can always make them a handy, fast and mobile data carrier.

We will insert not only the popular M.2 2280 SSD, but also the shorter ones: 2260 and 2242. Delock 42614 equipment is available at a suggested price of PLN 298. That's a lot compared to the cheap 2.5 "USB SATA cartridges, but remember that we are talking about a PCIe SSD device with USB 3.1 Gen 2, so it will be a different league.
