OWC in the Press: News and Reviews – June 11, 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 ZDNET, Gear Patrol, iGeeks Blog, DP Review, Camera Jabber and Storage Review.


Best iPad accessories 2021: Docks, hubs, and more

OWC Thunderbolt Dock with Cables
(OWC Thunderbolt Dock)

“The OWC Thunderbolt Dock features not one but four different Thunderbolt 4 ports, allowing you to connect multiple Thunderbolt accessories to a single device, like your iPad Pro. On the front of the dock is an SD card reader, a USB 2.0 port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a Thunderbolt 4 port. On the back, you’ll find the power connector, three Thunderbolt 4 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, and three USB-A ports. In other words, you’ll have more than enough connectivity options for a workflow that requires a Thunderbolt display, external storage and portable storage — and you haven’t even maxed out your ports yet.”


Gear Patrol:

The Best USB-C Docking Stations for Remote Workers

(OWC USB-C Dock)

“The OWC USB-C dock is a great option for anybody who has a workstation centered around a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. The dock’s slim design and space gray design will match it perfectly. Additionally, it adds a number of vital ports, including an extra USB-C port and an SD card reader. It can connect to one 4K external display with the included Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.”

iGeeks Blog:

OWC Envoy Pro Elektron SSD review: Handy, rugged, and fast

(OWC Envoy Pro Elektron)

“From the sleek, silver design and Thunderbolt 3 support to high-speed performance and robust build, everything on the OWC Envoy Pro Elektron feature list is on-point for a Mac user. It fits equally well in an office environment and an adventurous hiking trip. You can calmly slip it into your pocket or bag without worrying about wear and tear. Although it is slightly expensive, the price tag is totally worth it.”

DP Review:

The need for (transfer) speed: Five full-featured Thunderbolt 3 docks compared

OWC 14-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock
(OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock)

“This dock gives you just about everything you want in terms of connections. That said I’d happily give up one of the 5Gb/s USB-A ports for the faster version, although it does offer a couple of advantages over the similarly priced Corsair dock.”

Camera Jabber:

OWC Thunderbolt Hub Review

OWC Thunderbolt Hub
(OWC Thunderbolt Hub)

“There’s no doubt that the OWC Thunderbolt Hub provides a convenient solution for anyone looking to add more Thunderbolt 3/4 ports to their Mac or PC. Plugin and you’re away, three additional Thunderbolt 4 ports in an instant and a USB-A for good measure, and of course, the Thunderbolt 4 ports are fully backwards compatible with Thunderbolt 3. Unfortunately, Mac ports are still languishing at Thunderbolt 3, while Thunderbolt 4 is fast becoming the norm in the PC world; check out the Intel NUC Extreme. The Hub itself is compact. However, the power supply and cables are almost double the size and equal in weight, but this Hub isn’t designed to be portable.

Storage Review:

OWC Express 4M2 Review

(OWC Express 4M2)

“The OWC Express 4M2 has earned a prime position in my kit. Its performance is unrivaled in its size class, and at just $349 when bundled with SoftRAID XT, or $249 if you already own an OWC device and a SoftRAID license, the price is right.
