Other World Computing (OWC) has reported the OWC Envoy Pro FX, a generally viable Thunderbolt and USB-C portable SSD that the company says can reach up to 2800 MB/s and is residue, water, and shockproof.
The Envoy Pro FX is intended for both Mac and PC similarity, and the transport fueled SSD vows to dazzle with both roughness and speed. The drive utilizes a warmth disseminating aluminum lodging that is IP67 evaluated.
IP67 implies that the drive is totally secured against tidy and can be lowered in up to 15cm of water for as long as 30 minutes. OWC says this degree of security is intended to keep the drive (and thusly any information put away on it) protected in even the dirtiest and wettest conditions. The organization additionally says the drive is ensured by “MIL-STD810G certified military-level drop toughness.”
OWC says the Envoy Pro FX upholds the maximum performance ability of any Thunderbolt and USB interface, which means move rates of up to 2800 MB/s.
The SSD will be accessible in four distinctive size setups: 240 GB for $169, 480 GB for $199, 1 TB for $299, and 2 TB for $479. The Envoy Pro FX accompanies a 3-year OWC restricted guarantee and will start shipping this month.
OWC enters a serious portable SSD field against Samsung, SanDisk, LaCie, and G-Tech. Samsung and SanDisk both state up to 540 MB/s read speeds on their 2TB USB-C drives that come in at $230 (and LaCie approaches $380 for its cycle), however are clearly less shielded from the components and just arrive at a small amount of top exchange speeds that OWC guarantees.
The nearest contender to the Envoy Pro is likely the G-Technology G-DRIVE versatile Pro Thunderbolt 3, which has a similar 2800 MB/s information move speed spec and 2TB limit however costs an incredible $1500. I checked on the G-Technology drive in 2019 and keeping in mind that it does generally satisfy those presentation guarantees, it’s fiercely costly (at least expensive, it’s been viewed as low as $700).
Compared with that value, OWC resembles a lot more smarter buy.
