Envoy Pro EX is a slick and handy solid state drive solution

Other World Computing's OWC Envoy Pro EX is one of the slickest solid state drive solutions around and a fine accessory for Macs with limited storage capacity. Designed for high performance storage and/or backup, it's powerful and portable -- small enough, in fact, to fit into a coat pocket, backpack, or briefcase.

Inside the Envoy Pro EX is a SandForce Driven OWC Aura Pro 6G SSD that offers real world sustained reads up to 436MB/s and writes up to 429MB/s. The USB 3.0 interface can bus-power the drive so an AC power adapter isn’t required.

Aura Pro SSDs utilize Tier-1 Synchronous NAND instead of the commonly utilized Asynchronous NAND. Synchronous NAND enables reads and writes to be "synced" with the SSD processor's clock signal for maximum data throughput. 

Additionally, the Aura Pro SSD utilizes DuraWrite Technology and intelligent block management to ensure endurance and reliability. As a result, the Envoy Pro EX can offer up to 100x greater protection of your valuable data than even an Enterprise class hard drive.

The OWC Envoy Pro EX is available immediately in two configurations: the 240GB Envoy Pro EX for $167.99 and the 480GB Envoy Pro EX for $297.99.
