WOODSTOCK, Ill., Dec. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today that the OWC Envoy Pro mini has been named as a Silver winner in the very competitive Consumer Product of the Year category in the Best in Biz Awards 2015, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
The Envoy Pro mini is a stylish, aluminum, pocket-sized thumb drive with the amazing capability of a full-sized desktop-class SSD. The Envoy Pro mini is now available in 120GB and 240GB capacities (with 480GB coming soon).
The drive is an indispensable workhorse that brings professional performance and high-capacity storage to life on the move. Unprecedented speed in such a small form-factor makes progress bars and data bottlenecks a thing of the past. The Envoy Pro mini also won a 2015 Storage Visions Visionary Product Award earlier this year.
"This isn't your average thumb drive," said Larry O'Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. "The pocket-sized Envoy Pro mini delivers full-sized, desktop-class SSD performance and doesn't slow down with use like competing SSDs. And because it's both lightweight and rugged, it's the ultimate go-anywhere storage companion for anyone on the move."
Now in its fifth year, the Best in Biz Awards 2015 had the highest number of entries to date - more than 600 entries were received this year. The Consumer Product of the Year category was open to consumer products created by companies from all industries in the United States and Canada, including hardware, software, financial products, appliances and any other type of consumer products.
