ROG Strix Arion M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure

Conclusion

The ROG Strix Arion M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure is a nice enclosure for NVMe M.2 SSD. The performance is as expected and I like that Asus has included thermal pads as well as use aluminium alloy to get the heat away from the drive.

The size bothers me a bit as it is a pretty big drive and I would never hang it from a bag like Asus shows on their website as it looks pretty weird. That said the design itself is pretty nice. I like the angled corners and the silicon protective hold around the drive. The Asus Aurora Sync might be a gimmick but again I think it looks nice when it lights up while using it.

I think the price is good at around 60$, especially for the rugged design and good performance.
