Product Information


OWC Envoy Express

While small in stature, the OWC Envoy Express offers a huge diversity of uses. Its 1553MB/s of real-world speed lets you perform on-location downloads of large media content like 8K video, high-res photo, and audio files in a blink. Imagine transferring 5GB of GoPro footage in just three seconds! Weighing a mere 3.3 ounces and shorter than a ballpoint pen, the Envoy Express puts personal and work files in the palm of your hand. For the ultimate in out-of-the-way mobile use convenience, you can place the Envoy Express on the back of your laptop’s screen with a removable slide mount. More options. More usability. More functionality…only from OWC.

Built for Highest Reliability

Engineered with fail-safes, the Envoy Express is optimised for the best and longest working life, especially in write-intensive workflows. From running double checks on data and correcting errors to ensuring the uniform use of its flash media, this high-performance portable NVMe SSD is calibrated for endurance as a factory pre-set.

Gets Onboard with Macs and PCs

Today's office is often a tiny bistro table, your lap in a remote location, or a cramped airplane seat. There's no power outlet and not enough room for an external drive. The Envoy Express is the first to include a notebook mounting system.

Removable adhesive gel and a lightweight yet durable plastic holder secures the Envoy Express onto the back of your Thunderbolt 3-equipped Mac or PC notebook screen. Easy to add and easy to remove with no marking or marring.

Store from Minutes to Millions

All the features and “technospeak” of an external drive don’t mean a thing if you don’t know how much of a particular file type it can hold. For every 1TB of your OWC drive capacity, you can store up to any of the following...

  • 250,000 photos
  • 250,000 standard quality songs
  • 38,000 high quality songs
  • 200 high-definition movies
  • 41.6 hours of GoPro 4K footage
  • 4.3 million MS Office documents
  • 24+ PS4/Xbox games
