I’d use it like the Syquest drive in my old Amiga 2000 An stick for Games, another for VMs, others for Backups Basically just for stuff I don’t use all the time I could just swap in the needed drive as that material is needed
I really don’t need this, so please don’t consider me for the giveaway. But wanted to say this would be a great expansion for a homelab hypervisor that’s running on desktop class hardware. Most budget builds are running on older hardware that only have support for Gen3 NVMe drives. With this adapter you could add a screaming fast Gen4 drive for the guest OS’s.
There are PCIe boards for that, up to 4 NVMe drives, provided the slot itself has bifurcation of its lanes. Cheap ones from Aliexpress et all, more expensive ones which may or may not need bifurcation and 16x lanes, being equipped with an internal PCIe switch, which costs quite a bit more
As for the give-away product: I have no use-case for it ATM. Besides, I have a number of single drive PCIe-to-NVMe adapters spare. I was hoping for a cheap-still-decent 1TB NVMe drive in prep for an upcoming file-server upgrade during the ‘black friday’ sales, but alas, finances are tight as I’m expecting some unexpected expenditure
