    Is there an external enclosure for a used PCIe flash module from a Mac Pro? Let's assume that in a few years, you can buy a 2 TB internal PCIe flash drive (from OWC or whoever), and right now you've just got a lower capacity module in it. Is there an external enclosure so you can still use that old module instead of throwing it out?

    Hopefully, someone comes out with a better solution.

    The envoy is inexpensive, and would work, but might be a bit slow.

    It is USB 3.0 only, so tops out at about 500MB/sec: not bad for 80 bucks, but was really designed for the older and slower macbook air cards.

    It's designed to help you transfer data off an old drive when you swap it with a new one. That's why it's relatively inexpensive.
