    Interesting thought.
    You can't go from NVMe to SATA. Most of the m.2 SATA to SATA adapters that I've seen are rather large and you would likely run into fitment issues. Not saying it isn't possible though, but I think it may take some research and trial/error.

    Which bencmark you want me to test it?

    I didnt care much abt it, since I just have an additional NVME so needed something to plug it as a USB-drive without hassle.

    Thanks for the test results. I have one coming in myself. As far as I know they all use the JMS583 chip.

    There isn't any way to go from NVMe to SATA though. It wouldn't be worth it anyway as you would be limited to SATA protocol speeds so the NVMe drive would be a total waste.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to do this as quite a few of us are stuck with a spare drive we can't use as we need to keep it in case the laptop has a warranty claim. Do you have a link to the 2nd faster one please?
    I would rather carry this when I go away from home than my mechanical backup drive as it is smaller and faster :)
