OWC Deals: Load up on HUGE Storage, Max-Out Memory, etc

Camera cards

I love that I can go on a long trip and never have to worry about deleting a shoot, thus giving myself an inherent backup (camera card + computer + backup too). OWC camera cards are the best I’ve ever used (SD and CFExpress Type B)—with nary a glitch in any camera.

Big, fast, fault tolerant storage

The smart move for high capacity and/or fault tolerance or RAID-0 striping is the OWC Thunderbay 4, which takes four hard drives. The Thunderbay 4 is the single greatest value-add peripheral I have ever owned, nothing else comes close.

As shown, you can populate a Thunderbay 4 with a massive 80TB of storage for about $2100. Four single volumes, a single 80TB RAID-0 volume, a RAID-4/RAID-5 fault tolerant 60TB volume, or multiple smaller volumes of any of those. Or you can buy it all pre-configured and pre-tested.

Silent and fast external backup

For desktop or travel, it’s hard to be a 2TB or 4TB SSD. The diminutive OWC Envoy Pro Elektron is an all-time favorite of mine, as it hits over 1GB/sec and it’s tiny, perfect for travel.


Have a 2019 iMac 5K or 2020 iMac 5K or a Intel-based Mac mini or iMac 4K? Go to 128GB for iMac 5K and 64GB for the others. No sense letting your work be constrained by too little memory.
