The proof is in the pudding as the cliche says.
I used it to stack images in Siril (a program designed for astrophotography) on a Mac mini M2 pro 32 GB. The images are 6240 pixels × 4160 pixels, 16 bit raw files. For the technical details, there were 197 light frames, 10 dark frames, 20 flat frames and 20 flat-dark frames: Using a SATA 7200 rpm drive in a Thunderbolt 3 enclosure, this project would normally take a little over two hours, give or take, to finish the initial stacking portion. Using this drive enclosure with a Samsung 980 Pro NVME SSD, the initial stacking portion took just over 5 minutes.
Here are the times reported by Siril:
Flat-dark::::::::: Processing all images in the sequence (20)
Convert: Execution time: 791.00 ms
Stack: Execution time: 1.93 s

Flat:::::::::: Processing all images in the sequence (20)

Bon produit. Beau design.
Rapide 3200MB/s avec un SSD WD Black SN850x sur un Mac Studio M2 Max.
Chauffe un peu 42°C.
Attention pas complètement en alu, pas mal de plastique un peu cheap surtout au niveau du verrou.
- Donald W.Verified Buyer11/27/23Rated 5 out of 5 starsGreat SSD enclosure
Well constructed, works well, should last for years
- Steven F.Verified Buyer11/26/23Rated 5 out of 5 starsI like it
I have a few Thunderbolt enclosure cases, and this USB4 case is at least the equal of those. I like the construction, my speed is the same with the same NVMe stick inside as with my thunderbolt enclosures. I like the Satechi hardware, I also have their Thunderbolt 4 Hub and appreciate the quality.
