The Idea

When the internal storage on a device becomes heavily loaded, external hard drives are often used. Multiple solid-state drives (SSDs) or hard disk drives (HDDs) can be purchased and used externally. Stockplop has created an award winning enclosure that lets you easily exchange any number of SSDs or HDDs. It has no plastic, no screws, no moving parts, and is often faster than existing hard drive enclosures on the market today. The performance of your SSD or HDD should not be limited by your enclosure. Use the plop to maximize performance and get the most out of your drive.

Now you can bring your entire movie or music library on a trip and connect it to your smart phone or computer. You can store huge amounts of data and organize them by storing them on dedicated drives. Stockplop is the most elegant, user friendly and sturdy SSD enclosure on the market today

The usability of the plops was tested using various designs and electronic components. Out of this resulted the pure plop, an enclosure with a pure and clean design tested for optimal data transfer rates that often outperformed the leading enclosures. It's easier to use, too. 

The plop-in feature works with all SSD drives with a height of 7mm. 

Our Designs

The pure plop uses no plastic, no screws, and has a sleek look and feel. With a height of 1 cm, the pure plop is a lean and stylish companion for the desk or road. 

The wood plop offers the integration of technology and nature. A laser-cut, hard oil finished wood inlay is set into the aluminum body to suit your creative and individual needs. 

The limited edition carbon plop gives a great appearance from every angle. The embedded carbon sheet offers a new "low carb" option that looks great on any desk. 

All model designs - pure, wood, and carbon - are the same dimensions. The plops have a micro USB 3.0 connector and a small blue LED at the back of the device, indicating the SSD activity. 

New 25% reward!

 Now you can combine a pure plop and hard drive stock! Check it out in the rewards today.

The Performance

Each device is equipped with an internal cutting edge ASM USB 3.0 controller with UASP support, offering high end performance. Stockplop strives to ensure that you get the speed that SSDs provide. Data transfer rates can reach beyond 400MB/s. 

Below, a speed test was conducted with a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD.

 Why stockplop?

Our goal is to design and offer unique products for your working environment. We strive to be creative, efficient, and effective when designing simple and streamlined products. 

When we develop our products, we always consider the impact on the environment. The ease of the plop reduces the need for multiple enclosures. The material choice also avoids plastics and makes use of natural materials - aluminum, steel, and wood. Even our packaging is kept simple and green. 

The Current Status

Until now, stockplop has been unable to offer any of its products to United States customers. Originally, stockplop was founded in Germany and launched into the European market. Therefore, we are currently beyond the prototype phase. We have a stable manufacturing pipeline, so we are able to ship the rewards once funding has ended.

 As always, before being shipped, each product is inspected and tested to ensure that our devices remain efficient and reliable. 

Your Support

Your support helps drive the creativity and inspiration of stockplop. Naturally, your monetary pledges that lead to our funding goal will help us ramp up the inventory and accelerate the market launch in the United States. 

We are also interested in your ideas. If you have ideas for plop variants or accessories that could go along with the devices, we would love to hear about it. We would love to hear from you. Tell us about your new feature ideas and how the plops performed in your hands.

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

Keeping your risk at an absolute minimum is very important to us. As stated before, we have a stable manufacturing pipeline that ensures that the production can meet the demand of the plops. We also complete a 100% inspection test prior to shipping any device. We are thoroughly convinced that you will be impressed. The worst risk you may face is getting your plops a few weeks later than expected due to high demand.
