Some exciting news has arrived in the form of a new Thunderbolt drive from OWC. This pioneering supplier of drives and other accessories specially suited for Apple Macs has released this new portable SSD for use on the go.
The OWC Envoy Pro FX portable SSD has a Thunderbolt interface and is also USB compatible. Available in capacities up to 4TB, it’s so fast it can transfer gigabytes of data at speeds of up to 2800MB/s. Even better, the case is built like a tank and certified dustproof, waterproof and waterproof.
While the OWC Envoy Pro FX is ideal for Macs, it’s also great for use with PCs, Linux, iPad Pros, Chromebooks, and Surface devices. It’s fast and robust and bus-powered, so no extra AC adapter is needed.
The drive is ideal for storing digital photos, videos or general document storage copies on a secondary operating system boot drive. It is particularly suitable for filmmaking and can be used on set to edit daily steps, polygonal camera shots or store large sample libraries for audio projects.
The new drive looks sleek thanks to its heat-dissipating aluminum casing in charcoal gray. There is an IP67 rating that allows the OWC Envoy Pro FX to be used in the dirtiest and wettest conditions.
In addition, the drive is shock-proof thanks to MIL-STD810G military-grade drop resistance certification. OWC claims the drive is so tough that it survived the mission to space and back on the Blue Origin New Shepard rocket.
Prices & Availability: The OWC Envoy Pro FX drive is available now and prices start at $219.00.
