Trebleet home page and more information here

I ordered dock 13.3.2023 and delivery takes about 2-3 weeks.

Yesterday (March 22, 2023) the package finally arrived!

Great customer service from Trebleet and even though China is far from
Finland, the delivery was quick.

GENERAL APPEARANCE

The package is a rather rough, OEM-type brown box, with the Trebleet logo
on the top and the most important information on the back. On the other hand,
who is looking at that box, so the product inside is the most important.

The dock itself is really high-quality and attention has also been paid to the underside.
Usually, in similar products, the underside is plastic, as in the last tested Qwiizlab product.

This immediately gives a very high-quality feeling about the product.
The cover is apparently acrylic? and it is protected by a thin plastic film that
must be removed. However, it is very difficult to get it off, but after scratching for a while,
it did come off.

Remove the thin plastic film from the top of the dock before use.

Comparison with Qwiizlab’s dock.

INSTALLATION

On Trebleet’s forum, it was mentioned that you can put a heatsink cooler in the nvme board,
and there was also a suitable model mentioned there.

So I had already ordered be quiet! heatsink that I installed on the Samsung 970 EVO PLUS board.
It fits perfectly and the bottom door also closes. I still haven’t received an answer from Trebleet about whether it is
recommended to keep the door open or closed with this cooler?

SPEED TEST

M.2 SSD speed test (Samsung EVO PLUS 2TB).

If you look at the list on Trebleet’s forum, SAMSUNG EVO PLUS is not on the supported list. However, it appears to work excellently,
and there are no complaints about the speed either.

SUMMARY

Trebleet is still a relatively unknown manufacturer and there is not much information or reviews about their products. I made the purchase decision based on
feedback from users of the MacRumors forum, as well as Trebleet’s great customer service, which convinced me.

So far there is nothing bad to say about the product and I am very satisfied with my purchase and the quality of the product.

If something bad has to be said now, it’s that the device is quite expensive at $299. However, the experience and quality so far supports that high price.

The device gets a full five stars at this point!

5.0 out of 5.0 stars

However, let’s continue testing and I’ll update my thoughts here.

Thanks to Trebleet for a great product!
