Overall, I really like the two Orico NVMe M.2 enclosures. Personally, I like the aluminium PCM2-C3 over the transparent TCM2-C3, but you can’t fault the enclosure for personal taste. Since they both use the same PCB internally, they’re equal on all fronts. Well, the aluminium version will dissipate heat better. The transparent version still features a heatsink, so the installed drive is well taken care of.
The overall build quality is great. You don’t have the feeling of a cheap product in your hand and I would easily have expected the aluminium version to cost more – at least in the UK. The transparent version is also well crafted and the two pieces have a great fit despite being assembled without any screws.
The installation was a breeze. Slide the encloser apart, insert and secure the M.2 drive, and put it back together. Everyone can do that.
Compatibility is no issue at all with the PCM2-C3 and TCM2-C3. Any M-Key PCIe drive should work great in the enclosure. Whether it’s a small 2230 or a more standard 2280 module. The connection is also secured as it comes with cables for USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 as well as USB-A.
Got an old NVMe drive collecting dust on the shelves somewhere? Why not utilise it as a speedy and compact portable solution. Or maybe you just want to build something new with it and a brand new drive? Either way, the Orico NVMe M.2 enclosures should serve you well.
“Quality enclosures for your speedy NVMe drives, that’s the Orico PCM2-C3 and TCM2-C3. One both types of taste, sleek aluminium or differently transparent.”
