We tested our enclosure with Sumsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD, the actual speed can reach to 1000MB/s on R/W. But to this speed, pls make sure the Laptop TYPE C port is also comply with USB3.1 Gen 2(10Gbps), if USB3.1 Gen 1(5Gbps), then speed will be only half.
For the brand new SSD drive, it may not be found, so please format it before the first time using. Pls format it to corresponding type which Windows and Mac supported.
Follow step is to find the brand new ssd drive:
1. Use your mouse right key to click "Computer", it will show a drop-down menu;
2. Use your mouse left key to click "Computer Managment";
3. Use your mouse left key to click "Disk Management";
4. After find the brand new ssd drive, please format it, and made partition. Then you can find the drive normally.

Internally my PC has a M.2 NVMe connection and a SATA 3 connection for internal hard drive connectivity storage. On the internal M.2 NVMe connector I have a Samsung 500GB 960 EVO SSD for my OS which is blazing fast, with CrystalDiskMark reporting speeds around 3300 MB/s Read, 1800 MB/s Write.
I had previously purchased a SanDisk 500GB Extreme Portable SSD which is supposed to be one of the fastest external SSDs currently available and I was kind of disappointed when CystalDiskMark was reporting speeds of 440 MB/sec for the SanDisk as compared to my internal Samsung EVO M.2 NVMe which was getting 3000 MB/sec speeds.
Knowing the fast speeds of M.2 NVMe SSDs, I purchased this SSK enclosure to be paired with an 512GB Intel 660p M.2 NVMe in hopes of getting similar SSD speeds from my external storage as the speeds as my internal Samsung SSD was providing. However, you soon learn without being able to connect the SSD to an actual M.2 NVMe connection directly, that is just not possible. My PC has USB 3.1 GEN 1 external connections which has a MAX theoretical speed throughput around 640MB/sec (ie 5Gbps). The Intel 660p M.2 NMVe SSD paired with this SSK enclosure is getting similar speeds as the SanDisk Extreme SSD. I come to find out that the SanDisk Extreme portable internally also has their 600X M.2 NMVe SSD as reported by SanDisk's SSD Dashboard app. So the speed bottle neck of these external portable devices is really not with the SSD or the interface controller (SSK enclosure) they're connected to, but is more a limitation of the port on your PC you're connecting them to. If you have a USB 3.1 "Gen 2" port on your PC, which is able to get up to 10Gbps (1280 MB/sec) throughput speeds then I would expect you may be able to get double the speed that I am seeing with the USB 3.1 Gen 1 port. Also USB 3.0 speeds are the same as USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds.
Interesting enough, I also purchased a SanDisk 1TB Ultra Internal SSD which connects to a SATA 3 connection. I come to find out that SSD enclosure also has a SanDisk 600X M.2 NVMe SSD mounted inside of the box which just adds a SATA 3 interface converter. That internal SATA 3 connection provided 550 MB/sec read speeds. Therefore both of my PCs internal SSDs are faster than both of my external SSDs
Overall, the size and build of this SSK enclosure is good. I posted a pic of it next to the SanDisk extreme portable where it's longer but thinner than the SanDisk. Performance wise they're about the same when connected to the same USB 3.1 Gen 1 port on my PC. Price wise I paid $60 for the 512GB Intel 660p M.2 NVMe SSD and $30 for the SSK NVMe 2280 enclosure for a total of $90. I also paid $90 for the 500GB SanDisk Extreme portable SSD. So total cost was exactly the same. I got 11GB of additional storage with the Intel SSD over the SanDisk. The only real benefit I can see of going with either a pre built external SSD such as the SanDisk extreme or a roll your own approach by purchasing this SSK enclosure is that as SSD sizes continue to grow and their prices continue to lower, is that the roll your own approach with the SSK enclosure will allow me to replace the internal M.2 NVMe SSD to a larger size in the future and save me about $30. I'm kind of disappointed that I was unable to gain any cost savings going with the roll your own solution while at the same time I'm happy the roll your own approach provided me similar speeds as one of the top external SSD solutions such as the SanDisk Extreme.
There is a lot of confusion to sort through in regards to SSDs and their life expectancy. It typically boils down to the type of NAND flash the manufacturer uses for the SSD. TLC NAND is the lowest cost while having the least amount of life expectancy. SanDisk is not straight forward in publishing the type of NAND flash they are using in their SSDs. QLC NAND is the latest lower cost type of NAND while having a higher life expectancy over TLC NAND. I'm unsure of what which type of NAND flash SanDisk is using, so I thought I was doing myself a favor by purchasing the Intel 660p SSD since it specifies it is using QLC NAND. However, once I dug into the specs further you will see each manufacturer publishes a "TBW" spec. TBW= TeraByte's Written. For the Intel 660p it's TBW=100. Given the size of SSD is 512GB, this translates that I should be able to fill up the Intel a total of 200 times before I start seeing problems. The SanDisk Extreme's TBW=200 and since it's a similar 500GB in size, that translates to I should be able to fill up the SanDisk Extreme 400 times before I start seeing problems. So while I originally thought I was doing myself a favor by ensuring I was getting an SSD with QLC NAND by purchasing the Intel 660p SSD, that does not seem to be the case.
As for the customer service, it was an amazing experience. The first adapter I got had a weird issue where it would intermittently not recognize the SSD and it only worked with the cable in one direction. I contacted the company and they quickly sent out another via 2 day shipping, but unfortunately it still had the same problem. Finally, the company did some additional research and sent me a third adapter directly from China (via Fedex even!), which worked correctly! And throughout this entire process, they typically responded in a few hours. I also found out after a bit of searching that my SSD, the Intel 600p, has a power state that is right near the limit of the minimum power guaranteed by USB 3, which is probably why I was experiencing issues in the first place. So the fact that the company made adjustments to their product to make it work, and went through the trouble of sending me two replacements, is impressive.
Overall, I am quite happy with this adapter and especially with the customer service.
