OWC Tuesday announced an external SSD solution for Mac and Windows computers. The Envoy Pro EX links via USB 3.0 and offers up to 500 MB/sec speeds. The drive is bus-powered, so that means no AC power adapter is required, which is pretty handy for portable use. The drive is intended to be used on a USB 3.0 powered port, so users should expect to plug into their computer or a compatible powered hub. Also, OWC recommends this for USB 3.0 computers as it's not supported on older USB 2.0 hosts.
The company is selling tje Envoy Pro EX in two storage options of 240 GB and 480 GB. Pricing is $319.99 and $599.99.
