Hello, 

 

I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on affordable M2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapters. I just purchased this ADT-Link R43SG and have my video card going from PCIe to M.2 and need it to go to 40GBps Thunderbolt 3 so I can plug my Apple thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 connector in for my MacBook. 

 

I've seen a few links to a few different adapters that are reasonably priced (Like $50) however it looks like the sellers have jacked the prices up as those links are now pointing to $160 products. 

 

Thanks,

A ~US$90 JEYI LEIDIAN works well with a ADT-Link R43SG. Alternatively, could get a ~$150  ADT-Link R43SG-TB3 which includes the M.2-toTB3 adapter and TB3 cable.

Ah thank you. I actually cancelled my order for about 30 minutes as I read about the R43SG-TB3 on here, however I wasn't 100% sure it would work as well and un-cancelled my order. Of course I woke up to the email saying your order of the R43SG has shipped, then read your reply. 

 

Even at $90 it seems like getting the R43SG + the JEYI Leidan case would be about $10 cheaper than the R43SG-TB3 outright.  If there isn't a better deal on a M.2->Thunderbolt enclosure by tuesday I'll probably end up using your link and getting that. Hopefully everyone jacked their prices up for cyber monday so it looks like a better deal and not so they would be cheap enough to try and get good reviews than jack the prices up for good.
