Does it still make sense to get the Envoy Pro EX 2TB Thunderbolt 3 drive, given that I have a 2TB internal SSD in the 2017 MacBook Pro?

I want to get a couple of Thunderbolt 3 drives, but that’s for archival / backup, not for using as “almost” local drive. What would you suggest?

MPG: Roy P bought a top-end 2017 MacBook Pro and wants backups.

For archiving/backup, there is no need for Thunderbolt 3; it just raises the cost considerably, as does a very high performance SSD.

A good plan for travel is one fast SSD (need not be Thunderbolt 3), ideally one that is easily and conveniently stored separately from the laptop (in case the laptop is stolen). For that the regular USB Envoy Pro EX is my top pick, though it is limited to 1TB capacity.

The Envoy Pro EX 2TB Thunderbolt 3 SSD is overkill for backup (price and performance), but it is very fast, matches a 2TB internal SSD, can be kept in a pocket or backpack or purse, and plugs in directly to a Thunderbolt 3 port on a 2017 iMac 5K or 2016/2017 MacBook Pro—no adapters needed. If the best solution is the goal, it’s the real deal.
