M.2 SSD Enclosure Kit

Transcend’s CM42 and CM80 are enclosures in different form factors designed specifically for M.2 SATA SSDs. By following the step-by-step installation guide, you can transform an M.2 SATA SSD into a portable USB 3.1 Gen 1 external drive, maximizing utilization.

Transcend’s M.2 SSD enclosure features a lightweight aluminum construction, making it both portable and durable while you are on the move. A LED indicator lets you know when the drive is in use.

Inside you’ll find:

  • • 1 M.2 SSD enclosure (CM42 or CM80)
  • • 1 M.2 adapter
  • • 1 Type-C to Type-A USB cable (45cm)
  • • 1 metal plate
  • • 1 aluminum sticker
  • • 1 screwdriver
  • • 3 mounting screws
  • • 1 copper nut (CM80 only)

To accommodate devices with different USB ports, the M.2 SSD enclosure is engineered to convert to a USB Type-C port, offering flexibility of being used on different platforms with either USB Type-A or Type-C port.

The M.2 SSD enclosure uses the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface incorporated with UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) that makes transfer speeds faster than with a sole USB 3.0 interface when used with a UASP-enabled host computer.
To be compatible with the most common M.2 SATA solid state drives, Transcend offers two enclosures in different form factors for multiple drive heights. The CM42 enclosure is for type 2242 only, whereas the CM80 can mount type 2242, 2260, and 2280.
