Interesting. The downside is you have an M.2 drive, but are limited to 480mb of USB2.

Of course that is almost 40x faster than an SD card reader. (around 12.5mb) Next step, an actually mSATA connector on an RPi or hell. An M.2 connector, though they are a bit less compact.

I might have plans to build a box for it soon...

I put an HP laptop board in an Electronic project box. 7 1/4 inch board running Pentium Gold Duo 8 gigs ram 120 GB SSD, and MX Linux. Was thinking about making it a retro gamer box. Using Lakka or Batocera. As yet undetermined.

Did some tube heated and bent some plastic drilled 2 holes now I have a way to use acrylic rods as fiber optics to light up the Pi LED's. To install on the tower I am creating. Back done, power cable with switch adapter installed, HDMI thru cable mounted. Pi Mounted, Now to make the sides. I am bending acrylic sheeting not printing this thing. So a little slow.

Worked on my Pi Tower case this weekend. 3 1/2 inch wide, 4 inch deep, 5 high. Thicker because I am using the complete overkill Ice Tower Cooler with RGB fan. Just have to attach to the back and install the side clear panel. Figure where I want the clear acrylic rods to show the LED's to Cut a Raspberry into the front, now has a RED painted clear sheet behind it so it will glow. Need to take some pics before I assemble.

Because of the Ice Tower cooler, it's a bit of a chunker for a Pi. They make 2 versions, the tower and a flatter cooler, still chunk but only about 1 1/2 inch thick, The Tower is almost 2 1/2 inches tall, but it kind of fits with my Corsair Evo tower cooler on my PC.

The screws are support pieces, The corner on top is not a screw, but a plastic snap rivet for PCB boards. Have a bunch of them, allows me to pop it on and off. Thought about aluminum for the case would not need the supports. But went with the acrylic. Used a snap clip for the LED mount cover it clips to the cooler mount. Heat shrink tube for black. Slide in the acrylic tube and poof, fiber optic transfer. The Power and Act LED's on the Pi are not really bright so I can transfer the light about 6 inches max.
