The face of online content creation is constantly evolving. But the place where YouTube content creators turn to find top-performing solutions remains constant. OWC is the go-to supplier of YouTube content creators like technology aficionado iJustine; podcast producers like Lij Shaw (the owner of Grammy awarded TheToyBoxStudio.com); and celebrity photographers like Harrison Funk, who has photographed the likes of Freddie Mercury, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Diana Ross, and more.
The drive, dock, and upgrades a creative uses can make the difference between capturing a memorable moment or losing all of their data. Let’s take a look at seven of the OWC products that are the most popular with YouTube content creators and how they use them to make the magic happen.
Just because it’s time to increase your Mac’s memory doesn’t mean you want to get rid of your trusted aluminum steed (it’s your computer I’m referring to). OWC Mac Pro Memory Upgrades let content creators level up to 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, or 1.5 TB, all while saving up to 75% over factory options. These hot sellers work with current and previous models, with DIY memory configurations the factory doesn’t even offer.
This drive is one of those OWC products that customers can’t stop raving about. We’re talking pro-grade performance, here. With up to 1527 MB/s, OWC ThunderBay 4 has the bandwidth to handle massive audio/visual tasks. It is plug and play RAID ready with a wide array of model configurations to meet anyone’s unique needs. It’s built OWC reliable and fast enough to get the job done.
The Envoy Pro EX is one of OWC’s top sellers. Mike Hoorman, Product Manager at OWC, says customers walk up to the OWC booth at trade shows to tell the team how much they love this drive. “They pull their scratched up OWC Envoy Pro EX out of their pocket and just gush,” he says.
The product loyalty comes from the fact that this drive is dustproof and waterproof. It serves up to 980 MB/s of performance in every situation. The entire super-tough Envoy lineup has recently been expanded because content creators simply can’t get enough.
Some creatives find a product they love and stick with it for life. OWC Mercury Elite Pro is that trusted product. With over 20+ years in existence, this drive is still just as popular as the day it was launched. That’s because reliable OWC storage never goes out of style. Content creators sometimes purchase up to 20 of these drives before they finally step up to a RAID storage solution like ThunderBay.
This is OWC’s top-selling dock… and for good reason. A whopping 14 ports make the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock the connectivity solution for every creative need. Headphones, mics, speakers, Thunderbolt, displays, Gigabit Ethernet, SD slots… this dock connects it all. But it’s just the size of a smartphone. It’s super revered, too. Famous musicians — whose names I can’t share, and it kills me — swear by it.
Meet the new cool kid in class. The OWC Thunderbolt Hub “port expander” has taken the content creation world by storm. Four Thunderbolt ports, one USB-A port, and 60 watts of laptop charging power make this breakout connectivity solution the one everyone’s scrambling to get their hands on. OWC literally can’t make these fast enough to keep them in stock. Want it? Get your pre-order in now for May delivery.
Pro content creators often don’t want to risk changing their workflow by purchasing a new computer. I’m one of these content creators. Hell will freeze over before my MacBook is pried from my cold, dead fingers. Anyway, OWC SSD Upgrades help die-hards extend the life of their beloved machines. They come with incredible read/write speeds and are always backed with an OWC Limited Warranty.
OWC solutions can feel like an industry secret for content creators, but they really shouldn’t be. Hopefully this article helped shed some light on the OWC tools that creatives are using, so you can put them to work for your own content creation needs.
