Satechi has announced a hardware-free USB4 NVMe SSD Pro with 40Gbps speeds for Mac and iPad.

To perfectly match the Mac and iPad, Satechi announced its second new product this morning at CES. The USB4 NVMe SSD Pro Enclosure will offer a super-fast 40Gbps throughput for M.2 NVMe SSDs in a sharp, tool-free aluminum design.

Here’s how the company describes its new SSD enclosure:

“Satechi’s USB4 NVMe SSD Pro Enclosure allows quick and easy installation of M.2 NVMe drives. Supporting high-speed USB4 and Thunderbolt 4 SSDs with top port transfer speeds of up to 40 Gbps, it’s a perfect solution for storage expansion, system upgrades , file backup, and data storage, recovery, and transfer. Users will experience ultimate speed performance when using USB4 or Thunderbolt 4 connections.”

The USB4 NVMe SSD Pro Enclosure works with the most popular M.2 SSDs and supports capacities up to 16TB.

Satechi USB4 NVMe SSD Pro Accessory Features

  • High-quality aluminum and polycarbonate construction (designed for optimal heat distribution)
  • Plug and play + tool-free design
  • Supports speeds up to 40 Gbps
  • Compatible with M.2 NVMe SSD (2280, 2250, and 2242 mm sizes)

Launch and price

Satechi plans to launch the new SSD space in Q2 2023 at a price of $119.99.

9to5Mac’s Take

This looks like a sharp NVMe SSD enclosure with a clean design. It’s certainly a larger form factor than many others out there, including Satechi’s own USB-C NVMe Tool-Free Closure. I imagine the main reason for that is that this new Pro Enclosure supports USB4 40Gbps speeds which requires more space to deal with the higher potential heat generation.

From the tool-free, plug-and-play design to the flexibility to work with 2280, 2250, and 2242mm M.2 NVMe SSDs up to 16TB at 40Gbps USB4 speeds, I think this is a powerful and well-designed accessory that should useful for many years.
