The new OWC Envoy Pro SX is a fast and rugged Thunderbolt SSD

What you need to know

  • OWC has announced the Envoy Pro SX, a rugged new Thunderbolt SSD.
  • Not only is the new SSD designed to withstand tough treatment, but its Thunderbolt 3 connection means it’s fast, too.

It’s small, fast, and mighty.

OWC has today announced the new Envoy Pro SX, a rugged SSD that’s designed not to withstand all that life throws at it. It’s quick, too — The Thunderbolt 3 connection means users can expect transfer speeds of up to 2847MB/s.

It’s pretty obvious that this little SSD is designed to be taken on location by photographers and videographers. Those locations aren’t always the safest or indeed, softest. That means dropping an SSD can be catastrophic. OWC has built the Envoy Pro SX to keep working regardless, and it’ll do it in double-quick time as well.

Built along the award-winning lineage of the Envoy Pro EX, this tiny but mighty 8oz portable drive is 1/3 smaller than the OWC Envoy Pro EX with Thunderbolt 3, and it features a removable Thunderbolt cable, and is test certified to handle the nastiest environments. From handling obstacles in the field to deadlines at home, the Envoy Pro SX lets you unleash your productivity power without needing a cape or mask.

There are already tons of great Thunderbolt 3 drives on the market, but another one never hurts. This OWC offering already looks like it could do the job for most people and it won’t be found lacking for storage, either. Capacities range from 240GB all the way to a 2TB option. That monster of a drive will set you back $529, but it should be money very well spent indeed.

Whether you’re connecting this to an iMac at your desk or a MacBook Pro on the road, you might just have found your next SSD.
