A compact form factor and MPG’s favorite travel SSD (the 480GB Envoy Pro EX for about 18 months now), OWC now introduces a 1TB Envoy Pro.
Its attractive form factor and performance is matched by its $599 price. The convenience of bus power provided by the supplied short USB3 cable makes it an ideal on the go drive.
Price/performance/capacity context: taking the Kingston Data Traveler HyperX Predator 1TB (about $997) as an example of a compact alternative: the Kingston requires a short USB cable because it won’t allow a thinner laptop to lie flat, and it could block other ports. And the Kingston performance is lower and it is priced much higher.
