Some of my Favorite Stuff From OWC

Please buy through my links and ads, thank you!

The end of the year is nearly here—see my post on Section 179 business tax deductions. Equipment must be *put into service* by year end in order to qualify, not just ordered.

2020: the year I finally moved to all-SSD for main storage

I enjoy working in quiet; I don’t like fan noise, spinning drives, etc. This year of 2020 brought that dream to fruition with a move to SSD storage.

For main storage in addition to the internal Apple 8TB SSD, I use the 16TB OWC Accelsior 4M2 PCIe SSD in my 2019 Mac Pro. That total of 24TB of SSD storage means that I never need turn on hard drives except for backups. While the Mac Pro has a very low fan noise, it is hardly heard.

I also use two 8TB OWC Thunderblade units, which are excellent for high capacity SSD between machines or in my Sprinter van when on the road.

Also extremely useful to me are the OWC Envoy Pro EX USB-C units—very handy for all-around use and for travel. Though I haven’t yet splurged on the 4TB model, I use the 2TB one every day for backups of key data. The new OWC Envoy Pro Elektron (as fast as it gets for USB-C) is even more appealing for travel, though I have not yet purchased one.

For backups of all my SSD master/original stuff, I use the Toshiba 14TB MG07ACA hard drives (16TB even better, but I bought my 14TB drives prior to 16TB availability). The hard drives are housed in OWC Thunderbay 4, OWC Thunderbay 6 and OWC Thunderbay 8 units (other users might like even more storage potential with the OWC Thunderbay FLEX 8).

Finally, I upgraded my server with a 4TB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD.

Representative items; a wide range of capacities is available.
