Plugable Launches the First NVMe SSD Enclosure with a Completely Tool-free Design

13 Feb 2019










Requiring no screwdrivers and featuring improved heat dissipation, the Plugable USB-C NVMe
Enclosure enables maximum performance for high-capacity SSD storage.

Redmond, Wash. – Plugable , the leading developer of USB, Thunderbolt,
Bluetooth and power-related devices, launches the 10Gb USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen 2) NVMe SSD
Enclosure, the first high performance NVMe enclosure to feature a completely tool-free,
spring-loaded design for inserting and removing a compatible SSD, along with advanced
thermal management to maximize performance and device lifespan.
With a sleek and slim profile, a rugged aluminum body for improved heat dissipation, and USB
Type-A and Type-C host compatibility, the Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure is an optimal
solution for safeguarding SSDs when moving from the workplace to the home office and
achieving maximum transfer performance speeds on PCs, Macs and Linux devices.

Portable, Tool-Free Design

Unlike other NVMe enclosures that need screwdrivers to secure the SSD in place, the Plugable
USB-C NVMe Enclosure enables opening the enclosure using a slide-lock, then gently aligning
the NVMe notch into the socket and securing it in place with a tensioned rubber peg. Once the
SSD is secured, users slide the cover back into place and it’s ready for use. Thanks to the
USB-C NVMe Enclosure’s rugged and durable frame, it can be thrown into a bag and
transported to different workstations without damaging the SSD inside.

Effective Heat Dissipation for High Performance

The Plugable USB-C NVMe Enclosure’s aluminum body allows for peak heat dissipation
compared to other solutions available on the market, thanks to its ideal thermal properties. By
dissipating heat while in-use, the USBC-NVMe allows SSDs to maintain high-speed transfers
(up to 10Gbps) possible with the latest USB 3.1 Gen2 technology. For example, a transfer of
1,000 8MB photos, which can take up to 40 minutes using traditional thumb drives, will only
take 4 minutes using the USB-C NVMe populated with fast media such as the Samsung 960
EVO. Heat dissipation also extends SSD longevity, reducing the need for continuous
replacement and data migration.

Complete Compatibility

In order to meet the needs of professionals with diverse hardware preferences, the included
USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cables allow the USB-C NVMe Enclosure to be connected to any
Windows, macOS or Linux device. It is also compatible with all M.2 NVMe SSDs from
manufacturers like Intel, Phison and Samsung.
