Sudio ETT ANC Earbuds: I LOVE THIS COLOR! And YES This Sounds Awesome! Vivo Y20S Unboxing & Quick Look: Beautiful In Blue!

ed here with the digital digest and today i wanted to share a quick unboxing and first look at the sabrint rugged thunderbolt 3 dual nvme tool free enclosure you heard right roughly 150 us dollars i’ll include a link in the description i just received it for review purposes from sabrind and i’m excited because yet again they are pushing the envelope on high-speed storage so this is just an enclosure for 150 but it gives you something that no other product on the market at least to my knowledge permits you to do which is put two m.2 nvme drives into a single thunderbolt 3 enclosure and i believe the data throughput tops out at 1 500 megabytes a second so that’s a gig and a half a second which is crazy and eventually at least this is what i’ve been told sabrin will have this with nvme drives pre-installed so realistically based on what i’m aware they have in their current lineup this will likely end up being a 16 terabyte external enclosure or drive i should say so pretty crazy let’s go ahead and get this thing out of the package and it does come with one of their rugged protectors as well those of you that

have been asking me about the rugged protection basically that rubber uh shield that it has which in the past i unboxed one of these guys i don’t see them available on sabrin’s site for purchase i have reached out to find out whether or not they will be available they’re good you know not just for shock protection but also for when these drives heat up because inevitably they do so i recommend them but again it’s a matter of availability it looks like this just opens up like this and there are some other products from sabrin some new offerings that i’ll be sharing with all of you this wasn’t the only thing that just came in but definitely one of the more exciting ones because if you’re looking again to maximize your high speed thunderbolt 3 compliant storage remember sabrin does directly work with intel so they’re not someone just working off of you know expired licenses then this is going to be the way to do it so you can see already tool free as i mentioned much like this thunderbolt 3 tool free external enclosure that i covered in the past a good way to go if you’re just looking to do a single drive but if you want again maximum capacity which right now purse average on lineup as i said would be around 16 terabytes because they do sell eight terabyte internal drives so you could throw two in here it’s just crazy to think of how far we’ve come especially when you think about where mechanical drives that are external are topping out i mean this is challenging those foot forward and in a form factor and again throughput rate that we could just never imagine so let’s see what else is in the box i’m expecting all the

cables that we’ll need and that’s exactly what is coming up next and all aluminum build on this i mean that’s another thing i really like about sabrin is the build quality is just top notch so let’s see what we’ve got here i likely will be sticking to four terabytes or at least one four terabyte in here in conjunction with another drive yet i’m not sure in this one i have a four terabyte so i could easily throw this in here gotta love the tool free enclosures they are great and of course the throughput phenomenal over a gig a second and then in here i’ve got an older drive from sabran this of course higher speed capability but if you have a motherboard to support it that’s a one terabyte drive so these would be the easiest for me to just drop in there i don’t really want to break a this is not a thunderbolt 3 capable enclosure by the way so speed’s not as fast but basically the pro level which tops out at around somewhere between 6 and 800 megabytes a second not that that’s a slouch by any means so we’ve got a fairly large power brick here that is the one caveat about this drive is that i do not believe that it’s going to operate without the dc input so just part of being able to power what safbran has put together here you are going to have a wall wart a little power brick but i don’t think that’s a big deal if again this is what you’re after which is maximizing your storage capacity of course a thunderbolt 3 cable is included it looks like it’s got not sure exactly how long it is but it looks like a decent length so there we have it yeah so not

bad at all remember the throw on these cables is something you have to be aware of because throughput relies on that throw and the longer you get i’m not saying it’ll deteriorate but sabrin clearly is keeping that in mind when they give you a thunderbolt 3 cable no name manufacturers could say something is thunderbolt 3 capable or certified but use that term loosely because again i think the licenses have expired if you were not originally an official intel partner like saverin a lot of chinese manufacturers say they’re thunderbolt 3 and you’ll be surprised that the products they send you won’t live up to it we’ve got some pads here i’m presuming for the drive itself let’s go ahead and pop it open and see what this looks like and what i was mentioning before about these silicone covers is that they’re great not just because of protecting the drive but from a heat dissipation standpoint you can see all the cuts on the side i personally like to flip them over at least on the the two uh q drives that i have from sabrin so that when they’re operating uh this way i know that there’s a buffer between the aluminum and whatever surface i have them on they just seem to vent better that way so there’s a look at the drive again bare and you can see we’ve got uh two leds to let you know activity on drives one and two they are labeled one and two and then we have of course the thunderbolt 3 port the dc in and an actual power button so if you were wondering how this operates now you know so let’s see if i can get this open and there you have it so pretty straightforward two slots as you would have imagined for m.2 ssds drop them in and it should be plug and play especially if you’ve already formatted the drives if not then of course do so once you hook it up and that’s pretty much it of course windows and mac compatible i will only be using this actually let’s let’s set it up right now right why not i will only be

using this with specifically pc i’m not a mac user but you never know what might happen in the future so it’s good that we have that flexibility go ahead and unlock this guy very simple if you weren’t aware go ahead and put that down and i really do love their tool free drives thunderbolt 31 is great i’m not sure if they have launched yet essentially a a q version which would give you the flexibility of having of course thunderbolt 3 capability as well as well as backwards compatibility which would be ideal and let’s pop this guy out if the magnet permits me to which it should thought i just had it there because it should just come out there we go whoops not trying to do anything to this drive so now i’ve got a one terabyte and a four terabyte now in a perfect world as i said earlier i would aim for two drives with the same capacity let’s see if these guys pop out yeah they do so they just come out like that so let’s go ahead and start that on the other side since i already removed it so you just want to slot that in and these just slide out for those of you that are wondering and go ahead and drop the four terabyte in and so now i’ve created a nice little five terabyte combo but again personally i would be going for the four and four but right now as it stands for me to do that um i would need unfortunately to uh go a different route in terms of the actual i would have to break open an external from sabrin which i don’t really want to do now let’s just see how this i’m trying to figure out how this is going to actually sit there i pulled these out thinking that that was the way to do it i did not look at instructions i think you all know that already from watching this video but let’s just see if i’m able i don’t want to damage anything in fact i may take this out just to give myself the room and those thermal pads are there just to make sure the drives stay where they should and so that when you open up the enclosure you can actually get them off it looks like i feel like i got to keep it on i

thought i’d have to pop this off which i did as you saw all of you but it looks like we’re better off leaving those in place so let’s try that so i’m just going to go ahead and because it’s rubber it should be a little more malleable is what i’m thinking so there we go we’re in but you know i’m not positive it does get tight see that’s not going to work so what i’m thinking is that somehow we’ve got to get that in and that’s not working maybe it’s time to look at instructions how about that may as well right so of course the inventory we already went over and the process so step four at a 45 degree angle insert the magnetic pins into the ssd notch and slide your ssds and and slide in your ssd’s until they are properly seated and then step five is make sure the magnetic pin clicks so they’re saying it should already be seated like i have right there and then basically once we press in it should pop in but i’m not seeing that happening so just to see something here i’m going to remove this because we want to do this right i don’t want to mislead anyone here so these seem to line up fine like that but if you’re coming down on it i don’t think this will actually clear the hole but let’s just see no it does okay so then this should work and i’m just being careful because i don’t want to damage a drive and just like all of you it’s the first time i’m looking at this so we’re at that 45 we’re in all the way and so now

just pushing down on it it should get in there let’s see if i pick it up and but i do not want to damage the four terabyte drive clearly still not getting in there so i’m wondering if i have it on the wrong i don’t think i do i’m just trying to get this right here because if you damage this it’s a it’s obviously an expensive thing to damage so it looks like i’m having a little trouble with this i shouldn’t be because i was able just now to just pop this in but remember when i just popped this in coming in from above it was sans drive so that might be the reason yeah i think that is the reason that it was easier because it’s not just popping in that way so this is going to take a little bit of finagling as they say i’m not exactly sure how to really position it without damaging the drive doing my best i don’t want to mess up the the controller here i don’t want to mess up the drive so i’m gonna just try this one last time and if it doesn’t pop through that’s pretty much it the other approach i might try taking is actually slotting this in first even though that’s not what is advised because um that might be easier frankly so if that’s in there right now even though this is not what is recommended i’m gonna just try it and see if i’m able to just basically pull this back the problem is my finger is too big so it’s really not going to work out even as best i try so do not want to damage the drive i’m not really seeing a great way to get this in there and it definitely can’t just pop in so i this i’m gonna blame myself that this is uh user error on my behalf that i’m not seeing a way to do this sorry that the the video is getting extended here but i’m just not seeing a way to get this on oddly enough now maybe i mean i’m i know i’m putting this through at the right point and the thing is these are not um it’s saying they’re magnetic but they are totally rubber so unlike this which i think is more of the

magnetic when i see this from an angle it just does not appear to be catching and for good reason i mean it’s just not it’s not able now if i come in at an angle i mean i’m trying everything i think you know that already oh there we go so all right so the key i’m sorry it took as long as it did the key is is that when you’re pressing the drive down make sure to put pressure on the far edge of the rubber cap and it looks like that will do it because now it looks like it’s seated it looks like it’s fine let’s go ahead and do this with another and that will be verification for us that i figured out you know took a rocket scientist right that i figured out how to do this so again you want to get this at the correct point which is that top notch and then as you press down come on i was able to get one i should be able to get them both again you want to just put pressure at the far tip so you can see i’m putting the pressure or at least i’m trying again i was able to get one we should be able to get the other should be able to it was not a fluke what this is proving to me though is that there we go nope is that once you get this seated the way you want with the drives you want you probably want to leave it intact so this one is giving me a little more of an issue i thought because i got one i would easily get the other but apparently not i feel like if we come in on an angle it should make it it’s almost like you’re pushing the rubber insert this way even though it’s attached if that makes sense hopefully it does there we go all right so that took long enough uh 16 minutes in but there you

have it that is the way you do it folks so just be aware my nails coming apart a little bit that is the route you want to go so basically just make sure you apply the pressure at the far point of the rubber tip and it’ll click in you know it’s as long as they’re sitting flush like that you should be good and then those rubber pads obviously are there to buffer inserting this should be again fairly straightforward if i can remember which way the orientation was but it shouldn’t be too complicated it looks like the locking mechanism is on this end so i don’t have the luxury of watching this in reverse but pop it in like that and go ahead and lock it up and now i have a five terabyte drive now again i may uh end up throwing two four terabytes in here i’d have to break one of the four terabyte extremes i have but then that would make this an eight terabyte and if you are interested in having uh you know as much storage capacity as possible and you’re being budget conscious then i think this is a really smart route to go and that’s pretty much it there you have it took longer than expected but i’m glad i was able to do it i’m going to blame that on me a little bit of user error again this is for those of you that you know want to have as much storage as possible and are looking to do so again in a tool-free enclosure that you can take anywhere easily i want to say swap these out once you know what you’re doing

because i feel like now that i do know what i’m doing i won’t have a problem taking it in and out and getting something out but i have to say this may still be your regular preference the tool free thunderbolt 3 drive enclosure that they make because there is a nice flexibility to it being powered by thunderbolt 3 whereas this i’m just going to give it a test i imagine that it’s just not going let’s see if i can just grab a laptop here this video is long enough already right let’s just see if i hook it up right now may as well take it the distance since i’ve brought you all this far to see whether or not it’s going to be recognized being powered solely by a laptop so let me just go ahead this is the hp spectre 14t let’s move some of these things out of the way move them over i don’t think it’s going to power on its own but let’s just see i’m going to plug it in and we’ll see if it’s able to power it powering it on and it makes sense that it wouldn’t and yeah it’s not it makes sense that it would not be able to power it on since again we’re talking about a a drive with two drives in it let me go ahead and i’ll just put this down and since you’ve all been here long enough let’s just see what this ends up looking like shall we without me destroying anything go ahead and throw this down not the best orientation of things but it’ll work and let’s get the the dc hookup going and this way you’ll actually you’ll see the the drive light up and i’m just glad they’re doing things like this unfortunately no one else in the business is doing anything innovative i mean this used to be samsung’s bread and butter and if you follow sami you know that they’ve

kind of fallen asleep on this and i don’t really understand it at all because this is clearly a good good idea to say the least and the other device that i’ll be sharing with all of you soon is uh designed for cloning which i think is another really smart thing so i’ve hooked up dc power now we’re hooked up to a thunderbolt 3 port let me connect this to a wall outlet which hopefully i have something here that is available bear with me as i jump down the rabbit hole and we should be in business once i get this in looks like we got power and the drive should have power as well now when i hit the on button right here how are we looking i’m not seeing anything happening here make sure everything is seated properly up let’s see well it doesn’t seem like it’s powering on make sure i have everything seated properly with the outlet oh there it is and it did power on just now so just took a second it’s reading drive one you can see the uh the status light there on drive one and um let’s see how it id’s it shall we get rid of that and just go ahead and take a look go to file explorer i know you probably cannot see this on camera and this will likely be a video that i’ll do at another time and so right now what it is seeing is i see one drive it looks like it’s detecting the other is what it appears so it’s it’s seeing the four terabyte but i don’t see that it has recognized the other let me just check here it looks like now it is okay no it did detect both so uh it is seeing both drives independently so that’s great so it works as advertised you can see right here if i bring the screen into frame let’s not snag any cables you can see

right there clearly hopefully that we’ve got uh e and d you can see d is 931 gigs and e is 3.63 so a little bit of you know a few files there on d and nothing on e if i go ahead and do a transfer let’s just see give me a second here i will try to do a transfer from one drive to the next let’s see what performance from the internal drives to each other is i think that’s a pretty good test out of the box to do so now these are all just videos that i have lined up let’s just split screen this and we’ll do this okay so now i have two folders open as you can see so let’s just go ahead now i did not another thing you have to do is you do have to provision this so let me do that video is getting longer as i do this but it’s not a bad thing let’s go ahead make sure i have enough time left on this battery uh that i’m shooting with let’s go ahead and actually make sure that we’ve got we have to go into device manager bear with me here and make sure that it’s actually uh operating at peak performance so that should be under disk drives and so it sees them separately it sees a rocket queue and the question is i believe it’s this the nvme actually that may be the drive itself so with that in mind i may be incorrect about that let’s just make sure that both of these the policies are set to best performance and i think that is the key you want to enable write caching and hit ok so that’s done and now do that with the rocket queue as

well policies better performance enable write caching and that’s done now that we’ve done that okay because the other drive was the hp one terabyte drive let’s go ahead and open up those two again get them side by side and let’s try doing a transfer from one drive to the other so this is just an old see if any of these are larger files these are all roughly three gigs seven gigs for let’s see if there’s anything large here two it’s nothing too big here this one was seven so let’s go ahead and try dragging that over and let’s see what performance is like so right now it’s it’s only going alright so it peaked at a gigabyte a second hopefully that was viewable and if it wasn’t i will make sure it is by bringing a file over to the other side so this is a 25 gig file all right let’s see what happens when we send that over to the other now that’s starting at a little over 200 megs but let’s see what happens give it a second and you can you should be able to see performance is peaking now remember this was 26 a little under 26 gigs hovering right under a gig a second and there you have it so that was pretty quick and again that was a 25.7 gig file so fairly promising that was just a quick it’s really a demo unboxing and demo um very cool and um you know it’s it’s warm to the touch but not too hot and considering that was you know a 20 nearly 26 gig transfer plus the other we did over 30 gigs on this little guy so pretty impressive in my opinion any questions or comments please feel free to post them hit that like button and as usual please feel free to subscribe and please stay safe later
