(5 stars) Outlasted every other adapter mSATA I've owned

By: jeremiah
I bought one of these two years ago, I use it every single day, and I have put thousands of terabytes through it, and it's still going strong. Please release a Type-C version of this and a Type-C version of the NVMe adapter, especially. An NVMe drive could use that extra 5Gb/s of throughput.

(1 star) Random Disconnections during use

By: AndyK
I bought this to use with a Crucial 480GB mSATA drive. I found that when I used it fairly intensively it will randomly disconnect from the host computer resulting in data corruption and loss. It seems to behave better after updating the firmware and reformatting to GPT/NTFS But it's a bit late: I have lost confidence in using it... as the last thing you need is unreliable storage. Also I wish that this came with both USB C and USB B cables. USB B was the only cable supplied.

Sam, Customer Support
Thank you for your feedback on SMS1BMU313. We're sorry for the unreliable performance you've had with it and hope to help. The firmware update for this enclosure is meant to add TRIM support for earlier versions of this product, so it may not affect the behavior you've seen. There are a number of things that can cause intermittent disconnections such as lack of power from the host USB port, faulty USB cables, and outdated USB controller drivers. We recommend reaching out to our Technical Advisors at 1-800-265-1844 or for troubleshooting assistance. We should be able to help identify and fix the issue, or if needed, provide a replacement unit under SMS1BMU313's 2-year warranty.
