M2X | 2280 / 2260 / 2242 M.2 M | PCIe NVMe | USB 3.1 Gen 2 Enclosure Adapter

The MyDigitalSSD M2X external USB 3.1 Gen 2 adapter enclosure allows users to bring NVMe speeds with them on the go by turning any PCIe M.2 M (M key) solid state drive into an ultra-portable pocket drive.

Featuring a durable lightweight aluminum casing with USB-C and USB-A connectivity, the M2X enclosure provides near-instant access of up to 2TB of data anywhere, anytime thanks to a grooved heatsink design that combats high heat issues commonly found in small form factor SSDs and ensures peak performance even under heavy use.

M2X enclosure adapters are compatible with 80mm (2280), 60mm (2260), and 42mm (2242) M.2 M form factors, OS independent, and fully bus powered for a variety of uses including high-speed storage, backing up data, cloning an existing drive, running a mobile operating system, and more.

SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 Gen 2 Performance

The M2X features JMicron's JMS583 USB 3.1 Gen 2 to PCIe Gen3 x2 bridge controller that offers data transfer speeds up to 10Gbps, double the transfer rate of USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0).

The JMS583 controller also supports TRIM command for SSD and complies with both of USB Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport (BOT) and USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP), maximizing the performance of any PCIe NVMe SSD used in the M2X.

Additionally, the M2X enclosure adapter is backward compatible with USB 3.0 (USB 3.1 Gen 1) and USB 2.0 devices at their respective data transfer rates.

Durable Lightweight Design Keeps SSD Safe and Cool

Weighing less than two ounces, the M2X features a sleek, compact, and crush-resistant aluminum casing that safeguards against shock and vibration while its grooved fin heatsink base aids heat dissipation for a cooling effect up to 15°C*, protecting drives from overheating and thermal throttling.

*When using the included silica gel thermal pad. Results may vary depending on environment.

Fully Bus-Powered

M2X enclosure adapters are powered directly through the USB port, eliminating the need to carry an additional power cord.

Plug and Play

Access your files from any USB compliant notebook or device with this hot-swappable plug and play M2X enclosure adapter. No additional drivers or software required.

Includes Two 12-inch USB 3.1 Cables

Each MyDigitalSSD M2X includes two foot-long USB 3.1 cables for plug and play connectivity in either USB Type-C (USB-C) or traditional USB Type-A (USB-A) ports.

Mounting Screw Kit

M2X enclosure adapters also include a mini screwdriver and M.2 mounting screw pack for quick and convenient drive installation.
