Hello All,
I recently purchased from New Egg a RIITOP NVME to USB C Gen2 10Gb Adapter Enclosure;
PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD to USB 3.1 Type C Converter Case in Black (Thunderbolt 3 Compatible)
My goal was to be able to add an external M.2 SSD to my Lenovo X1 Yoga laptop. 

I inserted a 512Gb Samsung 950 PRO M.2 V-NAND SSD in the enclosure and then transferred a 2.20Gb .mp4 file from the Lenovo desktop to this device.  The transfer took 5.0 seconds.

For comparison of this transfer rate with other media, see my post,

The device currently sells for $46.95 at
The price is good through 3/14/19

One caveat.  The enclosure is held together by 4 very very small Phillips screws.  The drive comes with a screwdriver for removing the screws in order to insert the M.2 drive.  I found it extremely difficult to remove the screws.  Not wanting to strip the tiny Phillips heads, I used a minuscule amount of Liquid Wrench, I was able to remove 3 of them.  I doubt that Superman's big brother could remove the fourth screw.
Fortunately, I only needed to remove the two screws on the end of the enclosure with the USB-C connection in order to access the carrier.
I had no difficulty in re-inserting the screws.

How did we ever live with those 5400 RPM spinning hard drives?
