    I am looking for a UASP enclosure which appears to the system as the model name that the hard disk inside reports, not some label.

    Thanks

    I couldn't "see" the vendor ID using either Apple's "System Information" or their "USB Prober" utility.

    However, I tried an old copy of Drive Genius and it -did- see the drive's ID info displayed this way:
    Drive Title: ASMT Crucial_CT240M500SSD1 Media

    I also tried an old copy of TechTool Pro, and for some reason it -didn't- report the drive ID.

    I'm going to take a -guess- and say that the info you wish to see is not a function of the enclosure, but rather the software that is "looking at" the enclosure.

    I could be wrong, perhaps others will jump in and correct me.

    I think that means Disk Utility shows it as "ASMT Crucial_CT240M500SSD1 Media" too, which would mean Windows sees it as "Crucial_CT240M500SSD1" which would be good.

    Which 3.5" UASP enclosure?

    OP asks:
    "Which 3.5" UASP enclosure?"

    I boot and run my late 2012 Mac Mini from a Crucial SSD sitting in a plugable.com "lay-flat" USB3/SATA dock.
