The Truth Makes The Difference

Big theoretical performance numbers are certainly eye-catchers… but they rarely reflect real-world performance. That’s why we take the extra time to run OWC storage solutions through intensive performance testing. We truthfully list the Envoy Pro FX’s 2711MB/s1 real-world test results as part of our commitment to the “OWC Difference,” so you can rest assured that the Envoy Pro FX can handle even your most demanding needs.

Form Meets Function 

The deeply grooved fins on the Envoy Pro FX’s charcoal grey aluminum chassis aren’t just there to make it pretty. 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.
