OWC in the Press: News and Reviews – April 19, 2021

Welcome to this edition of OWC in the Press: News and Reviews, where we showcase some of the latest headlines and most helpful articles from publications across the globe. This week we have some fantastic pieces from Macworld, Windows Central, Terminal Gamer, New York Times, ZDNET, and Creative Bloq.


OWC Thunderbolt Hub review: Finally a simple way to add more Thunderbolt ports to a MacBook

(OWC Thunderbolt Hub)

“At $149, the OWC Thunderbolt Hub is a reasonable price to add a net of two Thunderbolt ports and one 10Gbps USB Type-A port for expanding access to drives, displays, and other peripherals. One of the greatest limitations of Thunderbolt has been removed with Big Sur and this new hub.”


Windows Central:

Best USB-C Adapters and Hubs for Surface Laptop 4 in 2021

(OWC Travel Dock E)

“The OWC USB-C Travel Dock E brings Ethernet, dual USB-A 3.2, HDMI, UHS-II SD card reader, and USB-C power passthrough (up to 92W) in a compact puck. The host cable isn’t removable, but it does have a channel on the bottom for safe storage. External display support includes a single 4K display at 60Hz through the HDMI port.”

Terminal Gamer:

OWC Envoy Pro Elektron External SSD Review – Exreme Transfer Rate

(OWC Envoy Elektron)

“The OWC Envoy Pro Elektron isn’t cheap, but at the same time a 1TB unit won’t exactly break the bank. Keep in mind that the technology is fairly new, and that usually means the price will continue a downward trend as time goes by. The price of this unit vs some of the other external SSDs on the market is comparable, with the OWC drive being on the higher end of the list. You get what you pay for when it comes to the safety features, though, and you won’t find many that are built like a tank and water proof. The PlayStation 5 is a powerful machine, and you’ll want to have the best accessories for it. External USB drives are many, with varying technology behind them, depending on the age of the unit. The OWC Envoy Pro Elektron uses some of the latest tech on the market to bring you fast loading times and fast transfer rates at an affordable price.”

OWC partners with Acronis protect your backups from ransomware attacks

(OWC / Acronis True Image OEM Software)

“If you’re a pro Mac user, you’ll likely know the OWC name. OWC has been the go-to place to go for RAM and storage upgrades, or for docks and external storage devices. Today, OWC announced that it would make Acronis True Image OEM software available on OWC storage solutions that include SoftRAID.”


Creative Bloq:

eGPUs: 3 top external GPUs for 3D artists

(OWC Node Titan)

“Akitio is Other World Computing’s eGPU enclosure brand, just as compatible with Windows PCs as well as Macs. The Node Titan is the most recent external graphics enclosure, coming with an impressive specification, and an all-metal build in a shade of dark grey that feels solid and high quality. It has unique removable thumbscrews, making it very easy to open the enclosure and replace your card. There’s also a retractable handle for transport that pops up from the top. Airflow comes in via one side only. It’s a relatively compact design too, 13.5cm wide, which is considerably less than both the Sonnet Breakaway Box and the Razer Core Chroma.
