Envoy Pro FX
240GB Portable NVMe M.2 SSD

The Fastest Most Compatible Drive Ever Made with Speeds up to 2800MB/s
The Portable SSD For All Computerkind™
The first portable SSDs on the market were truly one small step in mobile storage advancement, often with limited capacity, speeds, and reliability. The Envoy Pro FX is one giant leap For All Computerkind™ as it’s the first portable SSD with out-of-this-world performance and compatibility. Plug into yesterday’s and today’s Thunderbolt and USB equipped Macs and PCs. Plug into tomorrow’s Thunderbolt 4 and USB4 machines. You can even plug it into iPad Pro, Chromebook, and Surface devices. Imagine…never having to worry about what your external drive works with or what interface your drive has!
Xtreme Performance
The X in Envoy Pro FX means you can enjoy Xtreme max performance from any interface you connect to with speeds up to 2800MB/s. Whether you’re looking to access and save files from an older machine, backup up personal files, or do some in-field large format video editing, the Envoy Pro FX can handle every audio, video, photo, graphics, and gaming task you throw at it.
Ideal for Everyone and Every Need
Mac and PC compatibility back to 2010. Fast. Tough. Portable. That’s a lot of features boxes checked off. The Envoy Pro FX then goes to the next level by being the ideal drive for a wide variety of uses:
  • Photo, video, and document storage
  • Backups via Time Machine or File History
  • Secondary/portable OS boot drive
  • On-set project drive for editing dailies
  • Multi-angled camera editing
  • Explore your photo's potential in Affinity Photo and Adobe Photoshop
  • Utilize large sample libraries within audio projects 
  • A portable Steam games library
Certified Tough
Flexible uses in Xtreme environments is a defining attribute of the Envoy Pro FX. Its sleek heat dissipating aluminum housing is IP67 rated so you can work in the dirtiest and wettest environments. Take on the urban jungle or a chaotic set with supreme confidence that your data is protected by MIL-STD810G certified military-level drop toughness. It's so tough that we sent it into space aboard the Blue Origin New Shepard rocket! Whether you’re dropping it or suspending it in zero G, the Envoy Pro FX has all the right stuff.
Difference Making Truth
Big theoretical performance numbers are certainly eye-catchers…but they rarely reflect real-world performance. That’s why we take the extra time to run OWC storage solutions through intensive performance testing. Truthfully listing the Envoy Pro FX’s up to 2800MB/s real-world test results defines our commitment to the “OWC Difference” which ensures you’ll be completely satisfied the Envoy Pro FX will handle your most demanding needs.
Form Meets Function
The deeply grooved fins on the Envoy Pro FX’s charcoal grey aluminum chassis aren’t there just for good looks. They turn the entire enclosure into a highly effective heat sink for maximum heat dissipation and performance. Even after prolonged top speed file transfers, the silent Envoy Pro FX remains reliably cool.
Lock It Up
Protect client project files or personal information with ease. Fully compatible with macOS and Windows built-in encryption, the Envoy Pro FX lets you add peace of mind password security to your data whenever you need it.
  1. Up to 2711MB/s sequential read/write (max) performance based on testing a 4.0TB OWC Aura Pro P12 equipped Envoy Pro FX connected to a Windows 10 PC equipped with a Gigabyte Technology motherboard with an AMD 3960X 3.8GHz processor and 32GB RAM running AJA System Test (4K-Full resolution, 4GB file size, 16bit RGB codec, single file test). Performance will vary depending on drive and application used.
  2. Dropped over 25 times at every angle from a height of four feet by a third-party testing and certification service. IP67 rated water resistant for up to 30 minutes at < 1 meter
