One of the worst feelings in the world is when you realize you haven’t backed up your phone, computer or laptop until it’s too late. It’s something we may take for granted, as not many of us think that we need to save all of our data frequently. Having that sinking feeling when you realize you may not be able to see your photos or documents again is a haunting experience. You may think the process of backing up your life is complicated and overly expensive. However, with the help of j5create, that couldn’t be further from the truth.

If you are a gamer, a photographer, or an early adopter looking for a portable external storage option that saves on loading times, the palm sized NVMe SSD is the perfect choice to suit your needs. The j5create JEE256 USB-C™ to M.2 NVMe SSD Enclosure connects your M.2 NVMe SSD to a USB-C™ device for tasks such as file backup, disk upgrade, disk clone, data recovery and storage expansion. With the JEE256, you can easily back up, restore and save your most important files. The Enclosure is compatible with four different sizes: M.2 NVMe SSD 2230, 2242, 2260 and 2280 (M Key) solid-state drivers, offering your more flexibility. The JEE256 also gives you the option to repurpose your old NVMe SSD into extra storage.

The Enclosure is compatible with USB-C™ or Thunderbolt™ 3 USB™ 3.1 Gen 2, 10 Gbps and supports read/write speeds of up to 900 Mbps. Compared to a typical external hard drive, the compact and lightweight JEE256 is a perfect travel accessory if you have a laptop that doesn’t have an M.2 socket available.

It takes no time at all to set up, as you just need to use the included rubber fasteners to secure your M.2 SSD drives onto the board. The JEE256 is completely plug and play, with no tools or drivers required. You won’t have to worry about overheating, as the Enclosure is made from smooth aluminum and includes two side vents designed for efficient heat dissipation. The rubber retention peg can be adjusted to match different kinds of M.2 NVMe SSD.

You’ll always know what your device is doing thanks to the blue LED indicator light. If it’s a steady blue light, that means it’s turned on. If it’s flashing, it’s processing a data transmission.

With the reversible USB-C™ connector, the JEE256 achieves comprehensive compatibility with most major operating systems, including Windows®, macOS®, Linux® and Chrome OS™. You can access your files from any USB-C™ compatible device with this enclosure. For more information, be sure to visit the JEE256 product page.
