ORICO Portable M.2 Enclosure Review

Final Thoughts

I am a huge fan of fast portable storage! The ORICO Portable M.2 Enclosure makes it so you can easily turn any M.2 drive into a portable drive! Having a portable drive with this type of speed is great for transferring files, a game drive, or even an editing drive. ORICO’s enclosure features USB 3.2 gen 2 connectivity so depending on your drive you’ll see performance around 1000 MB/s, which is pretty fast!

ORICO makes it very easy to get your drive installed as well. They include the screwdriver and all necessary hardware. One thing that is nice is that this enclosure supports both PCI-Express and SATA M.2 drives. The enclosure also has a built-in heatsink so you won’t have to worry about your drive over-heating.

The only thing I don’t like about this drive is that it uses hex bolts instead of standard Phillip’s head scews.

Right now you can pick up the enclosure at our favorite online retailer for $49.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ORICO Portable M.2 Enclosure a 9 out of 10 score.

– Made of aluminum
– Easy installation
– Supports both PCIe and SATA M.2 drives
– USB-C and USB-A cables included

– Hex bolts uses instead of typical screws
– On the higher-end of M.2 enclosure pricing
