Dude, in all of the laptop reviews you nag the hardware companies for not including USB Type C, but when it comes to, I don't know, a USB device, even you are building a very modern portable storage on a very old computer interface.

lol been using a normal 2.5 SSD, mSATA SSD, and M.2 SSD as USB drives using Inland enclosures for every lol. Me personally I don't think having that long of a USB drive is good. I can see it easily breaking off because it sticks out more. Mine all use cables to get them out of the way.

You miss out on nothing because MOST USB drives aren't plugged into the back of a PC they're plugged into the front, and there are very few people that plug in multiple things into the front at the same time, and even if they do the people who make PC USB spacing usually leave giant gap between half your front ports.
