OWC Envoy Pro Mini is a Desktop Class SSD in a Thumb Drive

by JamesNYCApril 13. 2015 12:29

OWC announced the Envoy Pro Mini SSD drive back at CES 2015 but is getting closer to shipping the drives. The Envoy Pro Mini will be available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB.

Using an USB 3.0 interface, the Envoy Pro Mini can deliver up to 433MB/s transfer speeds. The form factor is pretty incredible given that is slightly larger than the chintzy USB thumb drives. However, the Envoy Pro Mini can be formatted for use as a dedicated external drive.

Pricing will be $119 for the 120GB version and $199 for the 240GB version. Pricing has not yet been announced for the 480GB version but it is likely to be $299.

Boot Your Mac Pro capture station in seconds with SSDs

Sonnet's Tempo SSD 6Gb SATA PCIe Cards Now Supported As Boot Drives in Mac Pros

photo assistant

Hanging onto your Mac Pro for dear life — at least until Apple makes good on its promised 2013 unveiling of a new pro workstation line-up? Sonnet Technologies has one more way for you to turbo-charge that system.
 
Sonnet said this week that its Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro 2.5-inch 6 Gb/sec SATA PCIe SSD cards now support booting in Mac Pros from early 2008 and newer.
 
The Tempo SSD cards allow users to buy standard 2.5-inch SATA SSDs, mount them on the cards, and then use them as boot disks — even in a RAID 0 configuration if they choose. The 6 Gb/sec cards double the bandwidth of the Mac Pro's native 3 Gb/sec SATA bus.
 
How fast is it? Pretty fast. With the Tempo SSD, Sonnet claims sustained read speeds reach up to 500 MB/sec from one SSD, and climb to 660 MB/sec from a set of RAID 0 drives. (Using two SSDs requires that an included bracket be used to extend this half-length card to its full length.) The Tempo SSD Pro, which sports a higher-performance SATA controller, can hit sustained read speeds of up to 960 MB/sec from a set of RAID 0 drives, Sonnet said. Don't try that with spinning disks.
 
The cards can also be used with Macs connected via a Thunderbolt PCIe expansion chassis. They work in Windows 7 and 8, as well, but not in a RAID configuration.
 
The Tempo SSD is $149.95; the Tempo SSD Pro is $299..95. (At those prices, as you can imagine, the SSDs are not included.)
