Re: External TB3 storage (SSD)

I picked up a 512gb Crucial nvme blade SSD, and a USB3.1 gen2 enclosure (cost me $32 for the enclosure at amazon after using a few points).

I get read speeds of 960+mbps from it, writes around 900.
Not as fast as tbolt3, but it works fine as my "off-site backup".

It can get hot with sustained writes, but for backups it's just fine.
