Just want to ask your recommendation.
Recently I got a Samsung 860 evo and an enclosure from orico. When i try to bench it, it is only around 350ish in seq. read and write ., Which is lower than the 550MB/s when directly connected. Is it just my enclosure is crappy or it is normal to be bottlenecked? I don't want to waste money for another enclosure and just getting almost the same result. The sata bridge controller is NS1068X

Which Flash Drive ‘file system formatting’ (for files that may be larger than 4MB) did you use? FAT32. ExFAT32, ext2, ext3, ext4, NTFS? And why? ..For OS platform(s) compatibility, Some details would be greatly appreciated here.

I was wondering if there was any decent upgrades to this technology, like a portable NVME to USB 3.1...just something that could be used for even faster load times in Console Gaming.

1:10 I'm glad I'm not the only one that occasionally picks up something to show it to someone, drop it and make it seem like I'm just throwing it across the room 😂

It doesn't matter how fast your thumb drive is if your HDD or SSD isn't fast enough to read or write data to its full speed capacity.
