OWC Envoy Pro Thunderbolt 3 2TB SSD

I’m in SSD heaven!

I just saw a production version of the OWC Envoy Pro Thunderbolt 3 2TB SSD. About twice the size of the current OWC Envoy Pro EX (my go-to drive for travel backup and other on-the-go purposes), the new OWC Envoy Pro nonetheless fits in the palm of my hand. The larger size is all for the better, because it allows for very high capacity, cooling fins for sustained ultra high performance and a robust aluminum case.

  • 2TB capacity with a form factor that implies a 4TB version should emerge.
  • Thunderbolt 3.
  • Tested with DiskTester: this external SSD not only rocks on small transfers (about as fast as anything I’ve ever tested), it hits 1300 MiB/sec on writes and 2000 MiB/sec reads. Externally. That performance blows away the 1TB internal SSD in my 2013 Mac Pro, at twice the capacity. Practically speaking, more speed is of no practical concern for anything but the most specialized or obscure situation.
  • Pricing TBD.

I see this drive as a breakthrough device: 2TB (and maybe later, 4TB) capacity, desktop grade SSD performance, outstanding portability. I can’t think of anything ever before that combines all these attributes, with no downsides at all. Many people could carry all their Stuff on one of these drives and never look back. The possible catch: is it backward compatible with Thunderbolt 2 via the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter? It should be, but this is to be confirmed.

The OWC Envoy Pro Thunderbolt 3 2TB SSD should be available for purchase “before NAB” according to OWC (that means April or so).
