New Toys: OWC Envoy Pro Elektron SSD

One of the coolest new products at the last NAMM Show was OWC's Envoy Pro Elektron portable SSD drive that is powered by AURA advanced NVMe technology.

This tiny pocket-size USB C 3.2 Gen 2 drive has up to 10GB/sec throughput speed and is crushproof, dustproof and waterproof rated to IP67. It uses an aluminum housing that dissipates heat, plus there is a blinking blue LED on the front to indicate power/activity!

It comes with a USB C cable with a Type A adapter and makes it the perfect travel drive to carry from studio to studio or transfer from a laptop to the main studio rig as I use it for all the time! 

My review sample was a full 1TB size and it is about twice as fast as other portable drives; it makes no sound at all making it perfect for recording studio use.

I cloned my system drive with the Envoy and make it bootable and that is a great use too because it is so small I carry it on business trips as a backup insurance policy. The Envoy Pro Elektron comes in 240GB, 480GB, or 1TB or 2.0TB sizes. The 1.0TB size is $199 MSRP and all are backed by a three-year limited warranty.
