OWC Envoy Pro FX Portable NVMe M.2 SSD
The first portable SSDs on the market were truly one small step in mobile storage advancement, often with limited capacity, speeds, and reliability. The Envoy Pro FX is one giant leap For All Computerkind as it’s the first portable SSD with out-of-this-world performance and compatibility. Plug into yesterday’s and today’s Thunderbolt and USB equipped Macs and PCs. Plug into tomorrow’s Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 machines. You can even plug it into iPad Pro, Chromebook, and Surface devices. Imagine…never having to worry about what your external drive works with or what interface your drive has!
The X in Envoy Pro FX means you can enjoy Xtreme max performance from any interface you connect to with speeds up to 2800MB/s. Whether you’re looking to access and save files from an older machine, backup up personal files, or do some in-field large format video editing, the Envoy Pro FX can handle every audio, video, photo, graphics, and gaming task you throw at it.
Flexible uses in Xtreme environments is a defining attribute of the Envoy Pro FX. Its sleek heat dissipating aluminium housing is IP67 rated so you can work in the dirtiest and wettest environments. Take on the urban jungle or a chaotic set with supreme confidence that your data is protected by MIL-STD810G certified military-level drop toughness. It's so tough that OWC sent it into space aboard the Blue Origin New Shepard rocket! Whether you’re dropping it or suspending it in zero G, the Envoy Pro FX has all the right stuff.
Difference Making Truth
Big theoretical performance numbers are certainly eye-catchers…but they rarely reflect real-world performance. That’s why OWC take the extra time to run OWC storage solutions through intensive performance testing. Truthfully listing the Envoy Pro FX’s up to 2800MB/s real-world test results defines OWC's commitment to the “OWC Difference” which ensures you’ll be completely satisfied the Envoy Pro FX will handle your most demanding needs.
Form Meets Function
The deeply grooved fins on the Envoy Pro FX’s charcoal grey aluminium chassis aren’t there just for good looks. They turn the entire enclosure into a highly effective heat sink for maximum heat dissipation and performance. Even after prolonged top speed file transfers, the silent Envoy Pro FX remains reliably cool.
