BUILT SMALLER AND FASTER FROM INPUT BY PROS LIKE YOU

The OWC Express 4M2 is designed with superior ease-of-use in mind. OWC worked with award-winning creatives and listened to the kudos they heaped onto the OWC ThunderBay mini, and put all that shared knowledge to good use when OWC set out to build the next-gen Thunderbolt 3 multi-bay drive. 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.

The result is exponentially faster and efficient SSD storage, and the OWC Express 4M2 has room for four NVMe SSDs.

DISPLAYPORT

Display connection flexibility is yours with a convenient DisplayPort located right on the rear of the OWC Express 4M2. There’s no need to worry about adapters or extra long cables. Just plug your display directly into the Express 4M2 and you’re all set.

MULTI-DRIVE

The OWC Express 4M2 comes equipped with OWC SoftRAID which provides the amazing capability to RAID across multiple drive enclosures. You can also add more Express 4M2 drives to your storage pool using Windows Storage Spaces.

INCLUDES SOFTRAID: EASY AND COMPLETE DRIVE MANAGEMENT

SoftRAID’s easy setup makes it a breeze to create RAID volumes by helping you through the entire process. Just decide what you’re using your RAID volume for and how much space to allocate to it. It's that simple to create your preference of speed and/or redundancy attributes of your data volume.

OWC enclosures ship with the XT version of SoftRAID. SoftRAID XT and Lite XT are fully featured and designed to only work with OWC solutions.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
