Tiny fan unbelievably keeps it cool

ORICO Omnispeed 20Gbps M.2 NVMe SSD Case with Built-in Cooling Fan Type-C M.2 NVMe SSD Portable Hard Drive Enclosure For M.2 NVMe 2230 2242 2260 2280 SSD - M2PVC3-G20

Pros: I looked for a _long_ time to find a USB 3.2x2 20gbps nvme interface, and I'm glad I did. 20 gigabit is 2.5 gigabytes a second, and I get around 2250mB/s on my main computer, but only 1700ish on my laptop. Both say they're connected at 20gbps, but I think my laptop just can't keep up. Makes me wish my main pc had more than 1 3.2x2 ports. When I installed the drive, I had serious doubts about the fan keeping it cool, but it surprisingly keeps it cool while making almost no noise. I have to put my ear a few inches away to hear anything at all.

Cons: The included USB cable was really short. If I didn't have a longer one, this thing would have had to dangle off the back of my computer. Alternatively, it's perfect sized for the laptop. The drive activity LED is on the side in kind of a weird place, but I guess it's better than the crazy bright ones that make me want to put on my sunglasses.

Overall Review: Absolutely worth the purchase. Feels a little delicate with the bottom made of plastic, but the aluminum top is quality, no sharp edges or casting flash. The 1 screw that holds everything together is a super tiny torx (star), but it comes with a matching screwdriver, so as long as I don't lose it, I should be able to swap drives just fine.
