USB-C Case for 8TB MP400

Hi community,

 

I'm super excited about the 8TB version of the MP400 M.2 SSD from Corsair.

 

I'm a Mac user and need lots of storage on the road working as a video and photo editor managing loads of RAW files in the field. Until now I used a bunch of Samsung T5 SSDs. Unfortunately they max out at 2 TB.

 

Now I wonder if there is a proven and suitable case to put in the Corsair 8TB MP400 that would work reliable on the latest MacBooks over USB-C/Thunderbolt?

 

So far my research has not been successful as most cases and their controllers state a limit of 2TB. Some don't mention a limit at all but I still wonder if it would work.

 

Can anybody recommend a M.2. case with a controller IC that should work with 8TB or even have experience with it?

 

Thank you!

Either of these guys should work for you: https://www.amazon.com/Thunderbolt-Enclosure-Thunderbolt3-NVME-Drive/dp/B07N67P39W or https://www.amazon.com/Thunderbolt-Certified-Tool-Free-Enclosure-EC-T3NS/dp/B08FT59SB6. Trebleet states they haven't officially tested 8TB but several users have without issue and I know a customer that has too. The Sabrent should just work but looks to be the slower of the 2 enclosures.

Thanks for the question, unfortunately we haven't validated any specific external enclosures for MP400 at this time.

Thank you for the suggestions. Out of personal curiosity, are there any USB-C enclosures you'd recommend for PC users without TB3?

I'll do some research on that, most folks I know running large external drives tend to have tb3 available :)

 

Edit: Something like this should work https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-SM21BMU31C3-com-SATA-Enclosure/dp/B01C7G8W86?th=1 they state no size limits their aware of
