Review of the OWC Envoy Pro Mini 480GB Ultra-Portable SSD
At 46 grams with lanyard, the OWC 480GB Envoy Pro Mini is an awesomely convenient way to carry around a lot of data that can be used at speeds similar to full-size SSDs. MPG has tried and rejected other compact possibilities like 256GB SDXC cards, but these are frustratingly slow under real-world sustained load, and such camera cards cannot take a beating over time without developing problems.
With 480GB of high-speed capacity, MPG ponders why iPhone and similar devices are stuck at 128GB in a far larger form factor.
