First and Only Complete Storage Upgrade
Once again, OWC provides Mac users the only upgrade solution that delivers higher performance, functionality, and reliability! When first introduced, the MacBook Pro with Retina display base model offered a 256GB SSD configuration with no upgrade option. Current base models start from 128GB to 256GB. Now, instead of being "factory locked", the OWC Aura 6G gives you the freedom to upgrade your capacity to meet your storage needs. Just like other OWC upgrades, we include the installation tools you need plus a free 'how-to' video to make this an easy and money-saving DIY upgrade.
Ultra-portable, bus-powered external storage solution designed to complement the MacBook Pro with Retina display
The OWC Envoy Pro combines elegance and functionality into a sleek, portable external storage solution that complements the design and finish of the MacBook® Pro with Retina display. Its anodized aluminum body protects your drive and data, while its minimal size allows for simple stowing in coat pockets, backpacks or briefcases.
The USB 3.0 interface offers speedy transfer rates of up to 500MB/s and the Envoy Pro requires no AC power.
Better by Design
"Mean Time To Failure" – We all know that nothing lasts forever, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get the most out of your investment. The 1TB Aura 6G SSD is designed and built using tier-1 NAND flash. Utilizing a suite of industry-leading controller technologies and backed by a 3-year warranty, OWC SSD's are engineered to keep working reliably at max performance long into the future.
This adds up to a MTTF that is higher than most enterprise class hard drives and SSDs on the market today.
OWC Note: Compatible with the Flash SSD module used in 2012-2013 13" and 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display models. If you would prefer a prebuilt solution, please see OWC's line of Envoy Pro EX portables.
