Backup your Life with the OWC Envoy Pro Elektron

Gadget User Rating 5

Have you found yourself constantly double-checking if photos or files need to be kept because you are running out of room? Or perhaps you are already in the habit of backing up your phone and laptop but find you are running out of space on your SSD?

The OWC Envoy Pro Elektron is the portable USB-C SSD that you have been looking for. Coming in four different size options (240GB, 480GB, 1.0TB, and 2.0TB) you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be able to store everything you need, quickly and efficiently. The OWC Envoy is small enough that it can fit in your back pocket while you are traveling around, making it easy for you to store it in your laptop bag or in that small space left in your desk as it is smaller than your smartphone. This is one of the quickest SSDs you’ll ever experience as it is up to 2x faster than any others on the market. Not only is the OWC Envoy small, quick and efficient, but there are also many other features that make it the ideal portable SSD for everyone, no matter the user.

Key Features

The OWC Envoy is entirely compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Able to plug into any Mac, PC, iPad, Chromebook, or Android device, both older models and future models, you can feel comfortable knowing that you'll be able to keep everything safe in one place.

Many older SSD devices ran into the problem of overheating and frying the internal workings, meaning we lost all our beloved files, photos, and videos if that was the only place we had them. The OWC Envoy has combated that problem as the material used is heat-dissipating and aircraft-grade aluminum. This also makes it silent instead of producing a humming sound like many other SSDs.

The OWC Envoy is crushproof, dustproof, and waterproof, meaning you can take this wherever you go and not have to worry about it being destroyed with wear and tear. A durable design means a long-lasting device.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

As most SSDs go, you want space, but now with the world turning as fast as it has and technology evolving at such a speed, we want to stay on top as best we can. The OWC Envoy is prepared for long-term use and prepared to back your files up for as long as you shall need them.
