OWC Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 SSD

OWC Envoy Pro Thunderbolt 3

Not sure which Mac to get or how to configure it? Consult with Lloyd.

The about $1698 OWC Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 2TB SSD is a bus-powered travel friendly SSD with very high performance.

Key differentiating factors from its OWC Thunderblade 4 SSD sibling:

  • The OWC Envoy Pro EX operates on bus power—no need to plug in a “wall wart”. This has the downside that must be the last device in a Thunderbolt chain, but it’s a much friendlier approach for travel with a laptop.
  • The OWC Envoy Pro EX is very fast, but it is not the no-holds-barred performer that its OWC Thunderblade 4 sibling is, particularly for writes.
  • Substantially smaller and lighter than its OWC Thunderblade 4 sibling; can fit into large pocket, though it is not svelte as with its Envoy Pro EX cousin.
  • Claimed speed of 2600 MB/sec reads, 1600 MB/sec writes.

Most users will find the three above factors compelling if any sort of travel is involved.

OWC Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 2.0TB External Solid-state Drive

Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 is the extreme performance portable SSD that works as fast as you do.

Super fast, portable, bus-powered and bootable, all at the phenomenal speed of Thunderbolt 3 — up to 40 Gbps. Rugged, stylish, and compact, Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 delivers professional-grade portable SSD performance, wherever you are. And with an integrated cable, it's the perfect package to match your Thunderbolt 3 workflow on site, on set, or in the wilderness.

Faster than anything before

The phenomenal new Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 is fast, capable of a total bandwidth of 40Gb/s and a sustained data rate up to 2600MB/s. The secret is the perfect combination of phenomenal bandwidth offered by the Thunderbolt 3 interface and ultra high-performance single-blade M.2 SSD, wrapped up in the rugged, stylish Envoy Pro EX enclosure. Now you can work in real-time with the most I/O heavy transfer tasks like working directly with multistream video.

Tough enough to keep up

A portable drive isn't much good if it can't handle what you throw at it. Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 excels at keeping on keeping on. Fully bus powered, and with no moving parts, it's already light years ahead of the competition. Add into the equation MIL-STD-810G drop test compliance, and you've got a true portable powerhouse that won't let you down on the road.

It's the drive you need

Whether you need a high-performance project drive to edit dailies on set, or a perfect, portable boot drive, Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 has you covered, doing double duty as both. Designed for details, it always runs cool and quiet, and looks great in matte black. And with the integrated Thunderbolt 3 cable, you're always ready to go. Available in multiple capacities, there's an Envoy Pro EX Thunderbolt 3 designed to suit your portable Thunderbolt 3 workflow.

OWC's extreme performance ThunderBlade V4 might just be the ultimate working drive for media professionals. In terms of pure transfer speed, ThunderBlade V4 is the fastest external drive we've ever made.
