Today, OWC announced that it was named a winner of a People's Choice Stevie Award for Favorite New Products in the 12th Annual American Business Awards. OWC won in two categories, for the OWC DIY Upgrade Bundle for the PlayStation 4, and the OWC Envoy Pro EX USB 3.0 Portable SSD Storage Solution.

Consumer online voting began in July, where both the PlayStation 4 DIY Upgrade Kit and the Envoy Pro EX took an early lead, ultimately garnering top honors. Past winners of the People's Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite New Products include Apple, Boost Mobile, Kodak, BlackBerry, and Samsung.

"We are honored to be recognized twice this year, for both the PlayStation 4 Upgrade Kit and the Envoy Pro EX," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, OWC. "Like all OWC products, they are built to the highest standards, with the user in mind, so it is even more gratifying that the people have spoken, and chosen these two products."

PlayStation 4 Upgrade Bundle Adds Larger, Faster Hard Drive for Better Gaming Experience
The OWC DIY Upgrade Kit for PS4 allows PS4 owners to double storage and boost performance with an OWC drive. DIY bundles include everything needed to upgrade/replace existing 2.5" drive and transfer gaming data to new drive. For added value, the original drive can be converted to an external drive, using an included enclosure, for new use for data transfer, back up, or portable storage.

Envoy Pro EX Sleek, Yet Rugged Portable Storage Solution Features OWC Aura Pro SSD
Inside the Envoy Pro EX resides an OWC Aura Pro 6G SSD, offering real world sustained reads up to 436MB/s and writes up to 429MB/s. Besides offering blistering fast performance, the USB 3.0 interface can bus-power the Envoy Pro EX so an AC power adapter isn't required.
