PC/Mac technology company OGW Friday unveiled a 480GB version of its Envoy Pro mini aluminum thumb drive.
480 gb thumb drive....what an idea. But should be made with 1 tb space.
If they could do that they obviously would. They can't though. This one has a lot of GBs but is fast. The 1TB ones are usually slow as hell.
No they are'nt. I have used many of these types of 1 tb hdd...they are'nt slow.
@EXTREME - Sure there are 1TB drives out there, I have one myself, but are they that small? Also I can't understand why people are blatantly disagreeing with comments that reflect what the article say.
Read the article. I was just saying what the article said. That's why this is 480gb and not something huge. It's the max the company can do right now while still being super fast. Pretty impressive if you ask me.
"The OWC Envoy Pro mini achieves speeds as high as 427MB/s and features a USB 3.0 / USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface." Meanwhile the drive you linked does only just half that. "Speed USB 3.0: 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write USB 2.0: 30MB/s read and 30MB/s write (Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage)"
Wow, that's even less than a the PS4/Xbox One's base model. With memory so cheap, that's still surprising. But there's always room for the upgraded model.
heh remember when I thought my 16gb thumb drive was a big deal lol
Right? I have a 12GB and thought that was overkill.
LOL so true
Meh... Let me know when they come out with a 480Gb micro-SD card.
