    Sure, here is the link, this one I bought on ebay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/273370744747

    Still, it is not that ergonomical as the small one, you need to remove 4 screws everytime to access the nvme-ssd in that black case.

    For the silver one, I just use the red rubber band (as shown on the photo), easy to access ssd.

    UPD:
    here is a link for the small one if needed:

    I had/have an XPS 1550. About a year ago, I carelessly dumped a cup of coffee on the laptop and fried the motherboard. If I wanted to salvage the SSD, format it, and use it as an external drive with my XPS 1560, is there one of the adapters being discussed here that would be more suitable for that use than the others?

    Anyone else experiencing an awful lag on YT videos, both on Chrome and on Firefox? The whole system becomes laggy, mouse and keyboard become unresponsive, as if it were severely throttled. Intel GPU saturates at 100% load.

    This has been going on for perhaps a month now, but I don't remember if it started after I updated to the latest BIOS version. Both Intel and NVIDIA drivers are at their latest versions, but the problem also happens with last month's versions, as well as with Dell official drivers.

    Thank you for the link. Tried it, but the problem persists. It looks like what this trick (from the link) does is prevent Windows Update from rolling back the driver to an earlier version, which has already been taken care of on my system using a group policy.

    I've searched the web and found other reports on this, but no solution. And those reports are quite old. But in my case, something was broken recently, I don't recall having experienced this issue more than 2 months ago.

    Are you also using an external monitor? Here I have two 4K screens driven by the TB16. I read that if you use an external display connected through a Thunderbolt dock, the NVIDIA GPU isn't used at all. Wonder if this has anything to do with our problem.

    You are very welcome I'm only sorry it wasn't the fix for your issue.

    Yeah I figured you probably combed the Internet for a fix but who knows as sometimes we can miss what others find.

    Take a look at the links below and see if you already were there and if not maybe there's hopefully some fix you can find between them.

    Good Luck!!!
