Pros: this adapter supports NOT FORMATTED (not allocated) disks, which is a big plus!
Per my knowledge, none of the current m.2 to USB adapters support not-formatted SSDs, which means you have to remove your current SSD, install the new one, format it, remove, reinstall original SSD, only then the new SSD can be used with a USB adapter, rather inconvenient procedure. This was one of reasons I purchased this specific adapter. And it worked just fine, the cloning software identified the new SSD adapter as a non-allocated disk and cloned right away.
The PCB, soldering, assembly of the adapter, metal rails show a good quality, not some cheap crap that I usually see at this price range.
1. The adapter is kind of mirrored/reversed, the power and data sockets are at the reverse side compared to a standard 2.5 inch HDD/SSD sockets. In desktops it may not be an issue as power/data cables are separate and you can install the adapter the way you want to for SSD's optimal heat dissipation. In laptops though, most of the time 2.5 inch drives are installed the aluminum cover looking outside (PCB side inside) of the laptop, and only one combo cable is attached which usually cannot be reversed. Example: Dell inspiron 7559 laptop. The only way this adapter gets into the 2.5 inch bay, is with SSD facing inside the laptop which is not good for heat dissipation at all. No way I could install it SSD facing outside as the laptop connector is right-angle and cannot be flipped. Just compare the connectors location of the adapter to any 2.5 HDD connectors, you'll get the point. This should be considered if you're worried about SSD cooling using thermal pads etc.
2. The mount and screw for 2280 SSD protrudes from the adapter edge by about a millimeter, causing the laptop's HDD bracket to be bent slightly to fit the adapter. You don't get a flush edge which is kind of upsetting, but it did not cause issues fitting in the bay. If your laptop SSD bracket is not flexible enough, you may have issues installing this with 2280-long SSDs. Wish the manufacturer placed the SSD connector 1mm further inwards, so that the mount did not go beyond the edge and would sit flush.
Overall, an excellent product and well deserved 5 stars if you do cloning, or install in desktop. For permanent install I'd give 4 stars because of heat dissipation issue due to reverse install in some laptops. Something to consider depending on your application.
I cloned one Windows 10 drive so I could upgrade to a much larger SSD than what was supplied with the laptop and it worked, for about 16 hours. Then total crap and the drive didn't die, but got some serious corruption going. I ended up putting the old drive back in as I didn't format it yet, everything was cool.
Next I cloned the data drive to upgrade to a bigger size and this worked without issues. The computer was not a Lenovo with extra hardware security or anything weird like that and I haven't tried again since.
Overall the use of the adapters went well, easy to slide the drive in and secure it with the screw.
Easy to use
Replicator Friendly (Mechanical to SSD and SSD to Mechanical)
Software Friendly - OS & Drive Copy Software
The adjustable lock screw is poorly designed and hard to move - essentially it's small, hard to see if dropped, and there are no methods to hold the barrel in place when re-attaching to the board so you have to hope that you get it right while it's trying to move.
The chassis is a little bit more flexible than it needs to be, not cheap feeling though, just needs a bit more stability.

Below is a link to the M2 I put in it and as stated above it works fine, I will update this review if I have any problems with it further down the line.
Ora, visto che i dischi m.2 Nvme Samsung sono molto venduti sarebbe auspicabile redigere inserzioni più chiare secondo me pensando che la maggior parte dei potenziali acquirenti di m.2 non conosce nel dettaglio tutti i tipi di attacco di questi dischi che sono sul mercato da poco tempo.
Infatti , a riprova di ciò, sia nelle recensioni che nelle risposte ai quesiti posti dagli utenti interessati all'acquisto si legge tutto e il contrario di tutto in proposito e ciò ha indotto in inganno anche me.
Sarebbe auspicabile scrivere chiaramente "NON COMPATIBILE CON M.2 NVME".
Poi grazie ad Amazon che permette il reso
I made a step by step YouTube guide showing how to install a second SSD into an ASUS VivoBook, S15 S510UN, using this product. To find it search for "Ivor's Tech Reviews" on YouTube.
