Wide heatsink!

Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3XHC W/ Heatsink
Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 NVMe M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 64-layer 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) WDS500G3XHC W/ Heatsink

Pros: Works as advertised.

Cons: Heatsinks are wider than the PCB.

Overall Review: I tried to mount these in a 4x NVMe adapter card, but the width of the heatsinks made them too fat to fit.

Most Critical Review

Modification required.

Mukii TIP-M300ST-BK TransImp MD 3.5"/2.5" SATA HDD/SDD Enclosure for 5.25" Bay

Pros: Does the job.

Cons: Drive won't receive power if the lower right corner isn't a 90 degree angle. 2.5" adapter has to be mounted to the drive(s).

Overall Review: There's a lever in the back that pushes a button to complete the power circuit. As I said in the cons, not all drives are able to push it back far enough. This can be fixed by opening the unit and either bending the lever forward or shorting the wires so it's always on. No risk here because SATA connectors' ground leads stick out farther than data and power.

Keeps the drive cool.

CORSAIR Hydro X Series XM2 M.2 SSD Water Block, CX-9029002-WW

Pros: Works as intended, hasn't leaked.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Replaced my motherboard's M.2 heatsink with this unit, keeps my drive temp down to 34c to 36c depending on load.

Almost 10Gb/s

NETGEAR 10-Port Gigabit/10G Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS110MX) - with 2 x 10G/Multi-gig, Desktop/Rackmount, and ProSAFE Limited Lifetime Protection

Pros: Transfers are quite close to full theoretical speed.

Cons: Requires a stronger power supply than the 8-port Gigabit model it replaced.

Overall Review: I replaced a crossover cable and 8-port Gigabit switch with this unit. My two 10G cards found each other on the network without needing extra configuration. HWiNFO64 recorded a maximum speed of 1,193,780.805kb/s (9.55024Gb/s) during a 300GB transfer between two machines with NVMe SSDs. That speed wasn't constant, but it only took about 4 minutes!

Works as expected.

Overall Review: This was just long enough for my needs and handles 10GB/s transfers easily.

Works as expected.

Overall Review: This cable handles 10Gb/s transfers, just as I wanted.
