My new backup hardware

Future proof, and better than carrying 2.5 inch SSD or HDD drives with their SATA to USB adapters
And now I can backup my 50 GB worth of files in 15 mins, I am getting the advertised speeds of 60 MB writes, on those tiny SD cards.
This also can service as an ESXi USB key
and attach it to phone to transfer files needs OTG
Really looking to this in the future as those SD cards are truly reliable and long lasting. Also Ugreen lists its controller model and it is good certified one.
What I wish is to have USB 3.1 or 3.2 support in the near future and if the SD card entry was spring loaded not just pushed then removed.
But all in all its brilliant. Having this much control cause if you purchased an 64 GB usb thumb drive ready made and if the pins got bad or performance you cant do shit, but this way it is modular.
Also there is M2 SSD to USB external enclosure, which is very fitting for M.2
Really interesting new tech/stuff. I think we should play along in the PC area and adapt SD cards.
