High quality USB to M.2 SATA adapter needed

Please provide me with URL hyperlinks of where I can purchase high quality USB to M.2 SATA hard drive adapters so I can connect M.2 SATA hard drives to other computers using USB cables.

I have already tried using the adapters listed in the URL hyperlinks below but these adapters haven't worked.

I don't mind paying more for adapters that work.

Where can I purchase these types of high quality adapters from?

These are the adapters that are too cheap and don't work (I should have read the reviews before purchasing them):

Try this Star Tech unit. They make good products and I have used them.

The Star Tech unit was one of the units we tried in my office that we had problems with.

What other adapters are available that will work better?

The reviews on the Startech unit seem to indicate that it works well for most people, but there are some specific M.2 chips which are known to not work. Rather than keep shooting in the dark, can you share what type of memory you are trying to use?

From another thread I've suggested  https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-2-5in-Adapter-Converter-SAT32M225/dp/B00ITJ7U20

This converts a M.2 SATA to a 2.5" SATA drive.  

Yes, it's not USB but you can then use standard SATA connectors to it.
