Translation:

  • Fits into a pocket.
  • Power and data with one USB 3 cable.

Press release

April 30, 2013, Woodstock, IL — Elegantly designed in anodized aluminum to match modern Macs and PCs, the Envoy Pro EX fits easily into a coat pocket, backpack, or briefcase for rugged mobile high performance storage and/or backup capacity.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Bus-Powered SSD

Inside the Envoy Pro EX resides a SandForce Driven™ OWC Aura® Pro 6G SSD which offers real world sustained reads up to 436MB/s and writes up to 429MB/s. Besides offering blistering fast performance, the USB 3.0 interface can bus-power the Envoy Pro EX so an AC power adapter isn’t required.

Built To Start Fast and Stay Fast

Aura Pro SSDs utilize Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of commonly utilized Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be “synced” with the SSD processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput. Additionally, the Aura Pro SSD utilizes DuraWrite™ Technology and highly intelligent block management to ensure the highest obtainable endurance and reliability. As a result, the Envoy Pro EX can offer up to 100x greater protection of your valuable data than even an Enterprise class hard drive.

Complements Apple’s Best Designs

The Envoy Pro EX combines elegance and functionality into a sleek, yet rugged portable storage solution. It’s so impressive in form and function that it inspired Jim Tanous of The Mac Observer to proclaim it “absolutely beautiful and on par with the best that has come out of Jony Ive’s (SVP of Industrial Design at Apple) labs.”

“We’re very excited to add the ultra-portable Envoy Pro EX to our storage solution lineup,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “Its functionality combined with its rugged, yet aesthetically pleasing aluminum design make the Envoy Pro EX a beautiful addition to any system.”

OWC Envoy Pro EX Features:

  • Anodized aluminum enclosure
  • Aura Pro 6G SSD with Ultra-efficient Block Management & Wear Leveling
  • USB 3.0 interface for up to 436MB/s sustained data rates
