Things you should know before buying ACASIS USB 4.0 Enclosure (TBU401)

ACASIS USB 4.0 NVMe SSD Enclosure(TBU401) is one of our bestsellers.

 

If you are pursuing supreme speed of data transferring or cross-platform storage solution, this will be an excellent choice. 

 

So let’s see what you may ask before purchasing:

 

Q: Which device and system is TBU401 SSD enclosure compatible with?

A: System: Windows/Linux/Mac OS 10.3 or later, iPad OS, iOS, Android

Q: Can I use TBU401 SSD enclosure on a general USB-C port?

A: Yes. It’s compatible with USB 2.0/3.0/3.1/3.2/4.0, Thunderbolt 3/4

[Notes]: If you need it to run at Thunderbolt 3/4 40Gbps speed, please make sure your device port with Thunderbolt logo   and the cable is also Thunderbolt certified 

Q:Is it compatible with PCIe 3.0/4.0/5.0 SSD?

A:Yes. But the latest Thunderbolt technology can just support the speed performance up to PCIe 3.0x4.

Q:I read some reviews about your recommended SSD, what about those non-recommended SSD, can’t I use them in this case? 

A: We recommend them just because they got faster speed in our testing. Non-recommended SSD is also functional but the speed may much slower than the recommended ones.

  • Recommended SSD: Samsung 970 EVO / Samsung 980 Pro /SEAGATE 510 series.
  • Not recommend SSD: Samsung 970 EVO plus / Samsung PM981 / WD SN850 / ADATA / CRUCIAL

[Notes]: Due to the firmware limitation of the Macbook M1 chip, the read speed is around 2000Mbps but its write speed is only around 1000Mbps. Chip M1 Pro and M1 Max doesn't have such a limitation.
