Cheap and good? Look for Sabrent Rocket NVMe, Silicon Power NVMe, or Corsair MP510 NVMe. These are all Phison E12. The Intel 660p is another choice, but it comes with some considerations. The drive slows down significantly as it fills up, but when empty it is as good as the best out there.
Best? Look for Samsung 970 Pro NVMe, WD SN750 Black NVMe (or Sandisk Extreme, which is the same), Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe.
For all of these drives there are plenty of reviews to be found online.

All of these drives have performance that is waaay better than this enclosure can handle, so all are good choices. One other caveat: 1TB is the best size for the optimal speed. 512GB is about 25% slower, 256GB is about 50% slower at worst.

If this is to put in your Macbook Pro at some point, then do take into account that modern Macbook Pros have soldered SSDs so there is no way of putting it in there. I would have to check, but I think they only started soldering them down in 2019. For older Macbook Pro (2013 and newer) you will need an adapter. These are cheap, especially when ordered from China, and range from a few £ to £20.

Don't need it now, got for the future.

Thanks (I think...)
Ordered, thanks OP! I've been waiting a while for an external NVMe enclosure to drop, so I can finally clone and then upgrade the SSD in my laptop. Had to refresh the page at checkout though, as the 20% voucher didn't show at first.
Finally I can find use for the extra 970 EVO Amazon sent me during Prime Day.

Tired refreshing the page, but cannot see an extra 20% off, it applies the £19 discount, getting price to £23.99. Any ideas?

I'm wondering if the double discount is a red herring or specific to the OP, because last time I bought this on a similar promotion it came to £24.99, as opposed to this time which is showing as £23.99 in my checkout.

I am all the way through checkout, only thing I can do now is click buy, still showing £23.99, so maybe it is account specific.
It showed as £23.99 for me then i tried again and it went down to £15.39

Tried multiple times on mobile app and on a pc broswer, removing the item from basket each time. Still doesn't discount to £15.39.
Not seeing 20% off either! Shame

Thanks a lot

Would using this with a compatible drive be any better for a steam library than just a 1tb internal SSD? I'm wondering now if I should cancel as put the money toward an internal drive instead.

In theory faster but in practice probably not much faster than an internal Sata SSD once the overhead of USB kicks in and that assumes you have a USB 3.1 Gen 2+ port on the computer.
These any good?

Only thing I could suggest would be to message Amazon support on live chat and see if they can apply the discount from their end.
very good quality product, recently purchase at full price, this is a bargain price.
Also note this is for M Key only, for those who have B+M key will need to but the other one.

Showing £42.99 now so deal needs to be expired.

Yeah same here
Doesn't work. Shows full price
Gutted, only seen your post today & offer has stopped.. will keep looking as I picked up a 1tb for my laptop for 73quid during prime day, and the 256gb it replaces is unused atm, until I get an enclosure!!
I paid £15.39 , I’m considering returning it mostly because I don’t really do anything requiring this speed. If I need more space I’ll probably buy an internal sata SSD which is cheaper and good enough for my needs, or if I buy an m2 nvme Drive I’ll slot it in my mobo (despite it being a pain and being on the underside).

Am I right in thinking this was or am I missing something really obvious.
Just tested mine - connected to a regular USB 3.0 port (Gen1 - 5 Gbps) I get read/write speeds of 440 MB/s - when I connect it to a Gen2 port on my Z270 motherboard I get in excess of 1000 MB/s so if you only have Gen1 ports this enclosure won't be any quicker than a regular SATA SSD. Still useful for cloning existing M.2 drives to a new NVMe drive.

Can I clarify that this website is correct msi.com/blog/usb-3-1-gen1-gen2-explained so my mobo which just says 3.1 will in fact be 3.1 gen 2 due to this change in naming convention?

This is what it says in my mobo info ‘Fast USB 3.1 Solution
The latest USB 3.1 offers a staggering 10Gb/s transfer speed, 2x faster than USB 3.0 and backward compatibility with existing USB devices.

It's changed again since that article was published. It's now:

USB 3/USB 3.1 Gen 1/USB 3.2 Gen 1 = 5Gb/s
USB 3.1/ USB 3.1 Gen 2/ USB 3.2 Gen 2 = 10Gb/s
USB 3.2 Gen2x2 = 20Gb/s

Thanks for the update. I’ve decided to return as there are probably better ways I could spend the £15 such as actually putting towards an nvme I can use direct in my mobo.
