Great For Extra M.2 Drives After Upgrading7/30/2020 11:26:42 AM

Overall Review: Overall, this is a great enclosure if you want to replace an M.2 drive and need a place to put the old one. I found it very helpful to connect the new drive to my PC so I could clone the old drive onto it before installing it. It's shockingly fast over USB-C and a decent form factor. A small downside is that this "tool-free" enclosure still requires an included Philips screwdriver to mount the board inside. It also requires you to hold 1) the board, 2) the drive, 3) a mounting nut pressed into the end of the drive, 4) a screw and driver. It's doable with two hands, but know that it requires more dexterity than "tool-free" might imply. FYI: inserting the SSD contacts into the M.2 slot took way more pressure than I expected. It was double or tiple the force I use to install M.2 drives on motherboards, and I had to tilt it up 45 degrees and wiggle it laterally at the same time. It wasn't quite enough to bend the board, but it was enough that I was starting to worry.

Successful Upgrade from CX450M5/7/2020 8:46:14 AM

Overall Review: I upgraded my HTPC from a GTX970 to an RTX 2070 Super, but I forgot to check on the power supply! It was a CX450M, and it didn't have the extra 8-pin power that I suddenly needed. I was worried about the upgrade, because this is a very weird case, with very tight space constraints, so I went with another Corsair modular in the hopes that everything would work out. Not only did it fit, I think it's quieter too. Now I've got a good enough GPU to play high end VR stuff like Half-Life Alyx and Asgard's Wrath. Overall, it was an upgrade in both power and noise for a surprisingly good price.

Great GPU, Terrible USB Ports10/1/2019 10:10:57 AM

Pros: It's an eGPU with a 2070 for not much more than the card itself. It's a great value!

Cons: The USB ports absolutely do not work. I tried updating the eGPU firmware, the TB3 software, the TB3 drivers, I tried rolling them back, I tried updating my PC's BIOS, none of that made a difference. A common theme among eGPU models is that keyboards and mice connected through the USB ports stutter or have a "sticky keys" effect. The cause isn't quite solved yet, but only eGPUs with two TB3 controllers seem to handle it okay.

Overall Review: This is a great card in a super compact eGPU form factor, and if you are okay not using the USB ports, it's hard to get a better deal. It's hyper-portable, so you could easily bring your laptop and eGPU in a single backpack and use it for LAN parties or fighting game setups and the like. It also provides full power to my HP Spectre x360. That said, the non-functional USB ports make it a poor choice to use as a docking station. The single-cable dream won't come true with this one.
