OWC has this week announced the imminent arrival of a new price for its 1.0TB Thunderbolt 3 solid state drive (SSD), making it available for $500. Supporting both Mac and Windows PC the portable external hard drive has been designed to provide a rugged device for “importing images on a location shoot, performing live on-stage, editing in-studio, transferring data between workflows, or transporting music files or family photos for sharing”.
Offering Thunderbolt 3 with an M.2 (NVMe) SSD allows the external storage system to provide users with transfer speeds up to 1,800MB/s, up to 3x faster than USB 3.0 SSDs. “OWC designed the Envoy Pro EX to not only keep up with demanding photo editing and audio workloads, but to survive the busy lifestyle that so many users experience. With a durable aluminum enclosure and no moving parts, it is built tough to handle bumps and jolts, and can withstand being tossed around in a backpack or knocked off a table. In fact, it is MIL-STD-810G drop test compliant. Engineered to run cool and silent, it also looks great with a matte black finish.”
OWC Founder & CEO Larry O’Connor said: “We engineered the Envoy Pro EX with Thunderbolt 3 to keep up with a fast-moving digital lifestyle and workflow. And with our new lower price point, we at OWC are excited that even more tech enthusiasts, from professionals to daily users, will be able to take advantage of what we’ve designed to be an optimal solution to meet our customers’ performance and budgetary needs.”
