Convenient Fast SSD for Travel: OWC Mercury Envoy Pro EX USB 3.0 Slim SSD

I’m traveling for a few days (airplane) and what will I be taking with me for my computing needs?

My MacBook Pro Retina goes along as my near-workstation-grade workhorse. It’s heavier than I’d prefer, but it’s also no-compromise on screen quality, screen real-estate and raw computing power.

But the MBP Retina needs a backup, so I feel quite pleased to now have at my disposal the OWC Mercury Envoy Pro EX, because it is much smaller and lighter than the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Mini that I used to carry. The Envoy Pro EX fits in the palm of my hand, fitting into the supplied soft cloth case with its short USB cable—ideal for travel.

Using it for data safety

Suppose I download a photo shoot to the laptop—all I have to do is clone the internal drive to the 480GB Envoy Pro EX and I have a perfect and bootable copy. Just as important, the drive is so small that it is feasible to carry it in my pocket, just in case the laptop itself is stolen; theft is bad enough without losing photographs important to my work. Never carry your laptop backup drive in the same bag as the laptop: the most likely “failure” is theft of the laptop.

See my review of the OWC Mercury Envoy Pro EX USB 3.0 Slim SSD.
