OWC Envoy Pro Mini

OWC just released its new 480GB Envoy Pro Mini Ultra-Portable SSD (thumb drive), as previously noted in MPG Review of the OWC Envoy Pro Mini 480GB Ultra-Portable SSD.

It seemed an interesting exercise to clone the boot drive on the late 2015 iMac 5K (293GB of data) and then to see how well the Envoy Pro Mini did as the boot drive.

The clone itself went about as fast as I’d expect form the Envoy Pro EX, which is quite impressive for a thumb drive.

Next the iMac was rebooted off the thumb drive. I launched all the applications that I would usually launch, and more. The applications launched quickly, with nothing to indicate that the whole shebang was operating off a thumb drive. Perhaps it was a nuance slower to launch than the blazingly fast internal SSD, but we’re talking fractions of a second—no material difference to the usability.

Very impressive for a thumb drive. At 480GB capacity, the OWC Envoy Pro Mini may be great choice for those looking to carry around the entire system drive.
