“Other World Computing are a long‑established supplier of storage and expansion solutions for computers. One of the things that sets them apart is that many OWC products are designed to meet the needs of professionals working in audio and video. This, in turn, means the company have much more of a focus on the Mac platform than most manufacturers in their field. On the software side, they are responsible for the MacDrive utility, which allows disks formatted using Apple’s APFS and HFS+ systems to be mounted and used on Windows machines, and SoftRAID, a cross‑platform package which amalgamates separate drives into a RAID 0, 1, 4, 5 or 1+0 array at the software level, either for faster data streaming, redundancy or both.”

Games Radar:

The best PS5 SSD in 2021

A big plus to the Elektron is that it is just really neat, small and tidy – I have small hands and it’s smaller than my palm! Which is incredible really, even if it does border on ‘so small I might lose it in my pocket’ size. However, it’s chic aesthetic means it can look slick next to or on top of any gaming machine, and looks can deceive: it’s waterproof, dustproof, and crushproof. Tough.
