OWC as this week introduced the first ever Thunderbolt 3 certified bus powered portable storage enclosure. The Thunderbolt 3 portable enclosure has been constructed from rugged anodised aluminium and is capable of supporting any 2280 M.2 NVMe SSD. Supporting speeds of up to 1553 MB/s “real-world performance”. The OWC Envoy Express enclosure is now available to preorder for just $68 offering a saving off the recommended retail price of $80 for a limited time.
– The Power of Build Your Own Options – Build the Envoy Express with a brand-new drive for a fast boot drive. Retask an existing drive replaced during an upgrade for added storage and backup capacity. Or, use Envoy Express to regain access to files on a drive removed from an inoperable machine. Whatever the reason for building a bus-powered Thunderbolt enclosure, Envoy Express has the power to make it happen.
– Backup, Play and Edit. Faster. – Whether you want to backup your growing photo and music libraries, share files, play your favorite games and movies anywhere, or even want to capture and edit up to 8K video, the Envoy Express can do it all. And it’s built to support super-fast sustained data transfer rates up to 1553 MB/s…often faster than a machine’s internal drive performance!
– Uses Today’s and Tomorrow’s Drives – Designed to support any 2280 M.2 NVMe SSD, the Envoy Express gives users the freedom of flexibility to use any drive today – including OWC Aura SSDs up to 4.0 TB capacity – as well as being ready for tomorrow’s 8.0 TB, 16 TB and future capacities without limit.
