Minix NEO Storage Pro 480GB Review

Rating: 7.5.

Launching on Indiegogo today, Minix’s NEO Storage Pro 480GB is a 4-in-1 portable storage hub that is designed specifically for Apple’s MacBook Air and Pro, and as the name might suggest, it comes with a built-in 480GB SSD. Is this a good option for any MacBook users out there?


The Minix’s NEO Storage Pro 480GB hub is an elegant streamline design that plugs directly into both the Thunderbolt 3 ports in the side of a MacBook Air or Pro. It provides a single Thunderbolt 3 port (that supports charging), one USB 3.0 port as well as an HDMI (4K @ 60Hz) port.

Inside the hub sits an M.2 480GB SATA SSD which, with its 400MB/s read/write rating isn’t going to set the world on fire with its performance. There’s no indication of what the drive is inside the NEO Storage Pro but using CrystalDiskInfo and a bit more delving, we get a firmware version that seems to point to an Apacer drive of some sort.

Minix back the NEO Storage Pro with a 3-year warranty.
