OWC released a new mini SSD drive in their Envoy line of storage drives, the new Envoy Pro Mini. The Envoy Pro Mini is a full-fledged SSD drive packed into a tiny thumb-sized aluminium stick that you can connect directly to a USB 3.0 port.
Taking a lot of data with you on the road doesn’t need to take a long time nor take up much space. The Envoy Pro Mini can perform sequential speeds up to 433MB/s and it comes with the choice of 120GB or 240GB capacity. Aggressive data management keeps the Envoy Pro Mini working at maximum potential even when full. Hardware error correction yields superior data retention and drive health, and gold-standard compression and data distribution maximizes write performance and drive endurance. Inside the drive is an ASMedia 1153e USB 3.0 controller.
“This isn’t your average thumb drive,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “The pocket-sized Envoy Pro mini delivers full-sized, desktop-class SSD performance and doesn’t slow down with use like competing SSDs. And because it’s both lightweight and rugged, it’s the ultimate go-anywhere storage companion for anyone on the move.”
The new pocket-sized USB 3.0 Envoy Pro Mini SSDs are available now and backed by a 3-year limited warranty The 120GB is set to $119 and the 240GB is set to $199, that is about $1 per GB and that’s a nice price considering what we get.
