    After removing the 256GB SSD from my 2012 MacBook Air, I want an external case to house it, so I can use it as an external drive. I've searched eBay, and there are external cases what refer to NGFF.


    I Googled the following, which seems to be what I need, but I wanted to get something from ebay, rather than purchasing directly from China. I assume that the required information I need is contained in the writing below that I copied from the Chinese website, but can someone let me know what information is relevant.

    Hence, I want to know what details I have to specify, so that it will work with the SSD that comes out of the 2012 MacBook Air 11".
