    I love ROG stuff and I had a Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 that I wanted to use to store stuff for moving around, so these two are made for each other.
    On receiving the ASUS ROG Strix Arion, it was just as I expected, the box was great, the contents were packed really well, just I would expect from an ROG item. The actual enclosure was lovely, metal, solid and just really nice to look at.
    The instructions were very easy to follow, use the provided pin, to open the enclosure. There are a couple of thermal blocks (like soft plaster-scene) on the inside of the cover, which was really good to see. There is a nice silver coloured screw to hold the M2 down, which I thought was a nice touch too.
    So the installation of the Sabrent was the same as any other M2 install. Then I went to close the cover and it wouldn’t shut. I thought I had the cover round the wrong way, but it only goes one way. I then used the pin to move the open/close mechanism a little to close the cover. Nope, unable to close the cover. I’m thinking my M2 isn’t going to fit this???? It should do, its the correct version, so it should fit!
    So I took the M2 out put the screw in the whole and the cover closed!!! So I put the M2 back in, put the screw in and the clover would close again!!?
    So I took the screw out and used the cover and the thermal blocks to hold it down……THE COVER CLOSED!! Um, so the screw is causing all the issues.
    It would appear that the screw without the M2 thickness will allow the cover to close. But use the screw with the M2 and tighten it as tight as you can, and the cover will not close. I ended up using another M2 flat screw to hold it down and the cover closed first time.
    Other than that, it is a great bit of kit (expensive though) There is also a protective surround for the enclosure and also a carrying hook, which looks great. The lights on the enclosure are great too by the way.

    ASUS have done an amazing job with this enclosure.
    As can be seen in the description, it takes an NVMe M.2 drive. These drives are a lot faster than ordinary hard drives, or SATA SSD’s. due to this speed, you need an enclosure like this one in order to take advantage of this kind of drive.

    The USB C 3.2 Gen 2 ensures that you’re getting the best speeds USB has to offer. Understandably, these benefits can result in a lot of heat build up. This is were the enclosure truly shines, it’s entire build, even the front panel covering the drive is solid metal. There’s also a built in heat pad, which helps remove the heat the drive creates.

    If you’ve got a spare NVMe, m.2 drive sitting around, pick up one of these enclosure, and put it to good use.

    Yes it’s more expensive than some others, but it looks so cool and has wonderful weight to it, so worth the extra imo. Two things. First, installing the SSD so the cover closes. Lots of comments on this. Here’s what to do. Insert the SSD, ease down and secure with the screw. BUT, there is a groove halfway(ish) up the screw and this is where the notch in the SSD goes. DO NOT place the SSD notch on the thread part of the screw. If you do, the SSD will sit too high and the cover won’t close. This is shown clearly in the instructions so RTFM!
    Second, when I plugged it in to my PC, nothing happened. A quick google showed me I had to ‘initialise’ the drive to get my PC to recognise it. There is a ASUS page that shows the steps, BUT, I ran in to another problem. You right click start, chose ‘disc management’ then find the drive in the window that pops up and foollow the steps. But the drive wasn’t there. I tried loads of stuff but just couldn’t get anything to work. But I have a lot of drives in my PC and didn’t notice I had to SCROLL DOWN to find additional drives. When I did, the new drive was at the bottom. Followed the ASUS steps, and now it pops up, remarkably fast, whenever it is plugged in to any computer.
    I know the above makes me look like a bit of a dumbell, but I hope this helps anyone who experiences the same thing.

    So I should clarify, I bought this because firstly, I recently upgraded my NVME SSD to a 1TB drive, and secondly, I lost my windows/ubuntu installation boot drive. So I had a spare NVME SSD and a decent use for it. I basically thought I was spending like £20 on some LEDs, and that didn’t turn out to be entirely true.

    Runs cool: This enclosure comes with some decent thermal pads, and the enclosure itself being aluminium leads to this dissipating heat really well, most likely a lot better than some of the cheaper options (The only other enclosure I could find with an equal spec to this didnt have pads, but for some reason had a like 1cm fan? This is very likely much better).

    Pretty durable: Solid, thick aluminium construction, and comes with a sort of rubber bumper that you can attach to it to keep it secure and prevent blemishes and damage from shocks and drops. Although, saying that, this thing is solid, I’m sure if it hits anything it won’t be the thing that gets hurt. It does come with a cheap velcro/plastic carabiner, but I don’t think this is rated for any meaningful water resistance, so please don’t use that or attach it externally.

    Super compatible: This thing, unlike some of the other enclosures I was looking at, supports both NVME and SATA M.2 drives, and with all combinations of B+M keys, meaning chances are, it’ll fit what you have, and still be useful when you want to replace the drive inside with a better/bigger/faster one. It also supports all M.2 drive sizes (That I am aware of), and also comes with a USB 3.2 USB to USB-C cable, and a USB-C to USB-C cable, which makes it able to connect to pretty much anything.

    Actually incredibly fast: Most of the drive enclosures that are a lot cheaper than this are only USB 3.1, or even 3.0. This thing is the highest spec it could really be right now, and for the price to spec, I don’t think this is unreasonably more than anything else out there.

    Looks good: I honestly probably could have saved £10 by getting a similar spec enclosure, but not one that I’m happy to leave out on my desk, or enjoy looking at. The Aura sync stuff is alright in itself, but those that have ASUS machines will probably find it seamless and nice, and the LED itself is a nice, more obvious indicator that it’s plugged in and receiving power correctly. The black, textured, enclosure is smooth and nice to hold, and pretty scratch/blemish proof.

    I have a single complaint; the “ROD STRIX ARION” writing on it is red. Really, out the box, it kind of mismatches with the RGB that its configured with, and I would have liked the option to turn the light white and have no colour on it at all, and some people might be particular about it matching their non red-black system. This is a tiny complaint though, and it probably still looks better than other enclosures out there.

    I bought this to make a fast external for my MacBook Pro. Looks great, the RGB is a nice touch and the default preset looks good so no need to install the Asus software to sync it if you don’t want to. Build quality is great and feels very solid.

    The included sim tray tool for opening it makes this simple to take apart. One issue I did run into initially was that I couldn’t close the door after installing the M.2 card. Finally figured to that there is a groove running horizontally around the middle of the thumbscrew that attaches the drive to the case. You need to line that up with the semi circular groove at the back of the M.2 and then screw it down, otherwise the screw is sitting too high (hence why I couldn’t close the door. Once I’d figured that out installation was a doddle.

    Speeds are good, what I’d expect from the USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface and works on both Mac and Windows.For reference I’m using a Samsung PM961 512GB SSD.

    It’s a bit pricier than some of the enclosures out there but it is from a respected manufacturer, very well built and unique looking. Well worth the money.
