Ultra-portable, SuperSpeed bus-powered external SSD storage solution.
While elegant in design, the true beauty of the OWC Envoy EX might be its rugged, high-peformance capabilities. Easily carried in a coat pocket, backpack, or briefcase, the anodized aluminum body securely houses an OWC Aura Pro 6G Solid State Drive offering 100x greater protection of your valuable data than even an Enterprise class hard drive.
With blistering fast transfer rates of up to 500MB/s, the Envoy EX can handle any demanding storage and/or backup need in the office or on the road. And because it's USB 3.0 bus-powered*, the Envoy EX doesn't require an AC power adapter, making it the ideal Plug and Play external storage solution.

"Mean Time To Failure" - We all know that nothing lasts forever. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't get the most out of your investment. The Aura Pro SSD utilizes DuraWrite™ Technology and highly intelligent block management to ensure the highest obtainable endurance and reliability. As a result, the Aura Pro equipped Envoy EX can operate for years in demanding use applications without daily write restrictions. This adds up to a MTTF that is higher than most enterprise class hard drives and SSDs on the market today.
Additionally, as there are no volatile memory elements in the Aura Pro, the need for cache is completely negated. The Envoy EX drive is just that fast from the get-go!
The Aura 6G offers leading performance with a time-proven design. We drew upon our experience in developing the first and only SSD upgrades for 2010-2012 MacBook Air to create the industry's only upgrade for Apple's revolutionary MacBook Pro with Retina display. As a result, you will experience the highest quality and reliability offered in an external SSD-based drive.
