Fastest SSD Enclosure Tested: ZikeDrive Delivers 3,700 MBps via USB 4

If you want a fast portable storage drive, it’s often better to pair one of the best SSD enclosures with your SSD of choice than just get one of the best external SSDs. However, just like the drives themselves, not all enclosures are created equal, especially if you want the highest possible speed.

All of the fastest enclosures today use 40 Gbps USB-C connections, are labeled either Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4 or USB 4 and are cross-compatible. Thunderbolt devices typically don’t work when connected to the 5, 10, or 20 Gbps USB-C ports found on most computers. However, true USB 4 devices are backward compatible with older standards such as USB 3.2/3.1.
