The OWC Express 4M2 is designed with superior ease-of-use in mind.

The result is the 57% smaller and 2.5x faster OWC Express 4M2.
It’s smaller and easier to fit into your workflow, studio and on stage. It’s faster with four easy-access M.2 slots so you can swap, upgrade or expand your Express 4M2 to configure and reconfigure it to serve any project need.
