SilverStone MS09

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For data back-up purposes, I ordered the SilverStone MS09, an enclosure that, by putting in a M.2 SATA SSD, you can make into a semi-DIY USB flash drive.






The SSD of choice was the WD Blue 1 TB.






The pictures above are of the Black variant of the MS09. Unfortunately, it proved to be defective, which is why I sent it back to the store I bought it from. As an alternative, I ordered the Aluminium variant (not pictured).


Once I determined that the Aluminium variant works perfectly, I moved onto benchmarking, using CrystalDiskMark.




While these speeds look great, in practice it was considerably lower. Testing it with a 10,9 GB file, I got around 150 MB/s. Aside from that, it works perfectly fine, provided I actually plug it into the USB 3.1 port in my desktop's rear IO.

Update: It occurred to me that the apparent difference between benchmark speeds and real transfer speeds could be caused by me transferring it from an HDD. To test this, I put the same 10,9 GB file onto my boot SSD (NVMe), before transferring it to the external SSD from there. The result, a write speed of between 300 and 310 MB/s.
