EZ-Adapter Ex MB931U-1VB

USB-C+A Gen 2 (10Gbps) to U.2 NVMe SSD Thunderbolt 4 Compatible Reader Adapter
Product Details
  • Product Introduction
    The EZ-Adapter Ex MB931U-1VB provides SMB, power users, and media professionals the quickest and easiest way to access their enterprise-level U.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs. The EZ-Adapter Ex utilizes a 10Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface and backward compatible with the previous USB 2.0 interface for best system compatibility. The tool-less SSD installation design allows users to transfer large files from multiple U.2 drives to any computer through a USB connection without having NVMe support on the computer end.
  • Professional Adapter for Enterprise U.2 Drives
    The benefits of using U.2 NVMe SSDs are fast IOPS, high storage capacity, long lifespan, end to end path protection (ETEP), and power loss protection (PLP). However, accessing U.2 drive required NVMe host and specific cables, making the data transfer between the systems almost impossible. With EZ-Adapter Ex MB931U-1VB, simply connect the U.2 SSD to the EZ-Adapter and then plug the USB type A or C connector into the system to start the data transfer immediately.
  • The tool-less drive installation allows the MB931U-1VB to swap multiple U.2 drives within seconds and making the process seamlessly.
  • For video professionals who film 12K footage with Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K camera and U.2 SSD, the EZ-Adapter MB931U-1VB is an excellent USB media reader that lets you quickly access your U.2 media drives in seconds.
  • Superior Performance
    To fully utilize the power of the U.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, the EZ-Adapter Ex uses the USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface that can provide transfer speeds up to 10Gbp/s, giving you the ability to back up large data files or store 4K/5K/8K videos in seconds. A 12V power supply is included to ensure enough power is provided for the power-hungry U.2 SSD.
  • The exposed U.2 SSD from the enclosure allows full passive heat dissipation to optimize cooling performance.
  • Compact for Portable
    The MB931U-1VB has been engineered for mobility but does not compromise functionality and durability. The EZ-Adapter Ex is made out of durable ABS plastic with a smooth finish that will not damage other equipment when placed in your carry-on bag. The compact design allows the EZ-Adapter Ex to be carried without taking too much space.
  • Ultimate Compatibility
    The MB931U-1VB comes with a USB type C to C cable for USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 ports and a USB type C to A cable for USB-A ports to cover both new and legacy systems, making the EZ-Adapter Ex a true plug and play external NVMe SSD enclosure with no drivers or software required.
  • LED Indications
    The EZ-Adapter Ex is equipped with a LED indicator that shows the drive power and activity. The individual slide-switch power button allows users to power off the SSD when not used to extend the drive’s lifespan and conserves electricity.
  • Pair it with the M.2 to U.2 NVMe SSD adapter (EZConvert MB705M2P-B)
    Converting your M.2 NVMe SSD into U.2 NVMe SSD with the EZConvert MB705M2P-B adapter offers tool-less SSD installation and comes with a large heatsink designed explicitly for high-speed M.2 NVMe SSDs. The MB705M2P-B uses a bridge connector to link the M.2 NVMe SSD, ensuring that the gold fingers of the M.2 NVMe SSD are protected from damage during insertion and removal. This makes it an ideal solution for users who frequently swap M.2 NVMe SSDs.
  • Pair it with the ToughArmor MB601M2K-1B M.2 NVMe SSD mobile rack
    The ToughArmor MB601M2K-1B mobile rack supports PCIe 4.0 transfer speeds up to 8GB/s and fits into a computer system's standard 3.5" drive bay. Pair it with EZ-Adapter Ex MB931U-1VB gives you both PCIe 4.0 transfer speed and on-the-go convenience.
