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.
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.
