OWC Announces First Thunderbolt 3 Certified Bus-Powered Portable Storage Enclosure

Posted June 25, 2020 at 5:16pm by iClarified
OWC has unveiled Envoy Express, the first Thunderbolt 3 certified bus-powered portable storage enclosure.

While small in form, the OWC Envoy Express is big news. For the first time ever in the history of Thunderbolt, users can buy a bus-powered Thunderbolt certified enclosure and install their own drive in it. Finally, a DIY kit that allows users to break free of pre-configured choice limits in order to build a pocket-sized storage solution that meets their specific needs. And rebuild it anytime those needs change. Equally revolutionary is the included slide mount. This surface-safe removable drive holder allows the user to slide the Envoy Express onto the back of a laptop screen for out-of-the-way mobile use convenience. More options. More usability. More functionality….first and only from OWC.

"The entire team at OWC is excited about this first-to-market offering of a bus-powered Thunderbolt certified enclosure," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO of OWC. "We receive requests all of the time from customers as to what they need from OWC. Our development team and engineers worked closely with Intel on the Envoy Express, and we are proud to continue to bring our customers cutting-edge offerings that allow them to work to peak performance. The Envoy Express DIY kit allows OWC customers to build a certified ultra-portable storage solution that meets their exact needs. We can't wait to see and hear how creatives use it and what they think."

The Power of Build Your Own Options
Build the Envoy Express with a brand-new drive for a fast boot drive. Retask an existing drive replaced during an upgrade for added storage and backup capacity. Or, use Envoy Express to regain access to files on a drive removed from an inoperable machine. Whatever the reason for building a bus-powered Thunderbolt enclosure, Envoy Express has the power to make it happen.

Backup, Play and Edit. Faster.
Whether you want to backup your growing photo and music libraries, share files, play your favorite games and movies anywhere, or even want to capture and edit up to 8K video, the Envoy Express can do it all. And it's built to support super-fast sustained data transfer rates up to 1553MB/s…often faster than a machine's internal drive performance!

Uses Today's and Tomorrow's Drives
Designed to support any 2280 M.2 NVMe SSD, the Envoy Express gives users the freedom of flexibility to use any drive today - including OWC Aura SSDs up to 4.0TB capacity - as well as being ready for tomorrow's 8.0TB, 16TB and future capacities without limit.
