OWC Announces Envoy Express – Thunderbolt-3 Certified Bus-powered Portable Storage Enclosure

Owc envoy expressX600OWC has announced the Envoy Express, the world’s first Thunderbolt™ 3 certified bus-powered portable storage enclosure.  It measures shorter than a ballpoint pen and weighs only 3.3 ounces with a rugged anodized aluminum pocket-sized enclosure.  While small in form, it's big news because Thunderbolt™ users can now buy a bus-powered Thunderbolt™ certified enclosure and install their own drive in it. This DIY kit allows users to break free of pre-configured choice limits in order to build a pocket-sized storage solution that meets their specific needs. Plus, anytime those needs change the enclosure can be reconfigured. And it’s built to support super-fast sustained data transfer rates up to 1553MB/s, often faster than a machine’s internal drive performance, which can be ideal for capture and editing intensive media such as 8K video.  The enclosure is designed to support any 2280 M.2 NVMe SSD including OWC Aura SSDs up to 4.0TB capacity – as well as being ready for tomorrow’s 8.0TB, 16TB and future capacities without limit.  It comes with a 2 year warranty and is currently available to pre-order on the OWC/MacSales website for $68US.  For more details, visit:  https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/envoy-express/thunderbolt-3
