OWC Launches New 5-Port USB-C Travel Dock

As device makers strive to continue to make their devices thinner and more compact, USB-C ports have become commonplace on today’s latest mobile devices. Despite this however, the availability of quality USB-C docks are still difficult to come by.

OWC, the popular maker of Mac accessories, is attempting to change that with their most recent release, the OWC USB-C Travel Dock. The OWC USB-C Travel Dock is a portable USB-C powered device that offers users five additional I/O ports to greatly expand the versatility of a single USB-C port.

Ports on the OWC USB-C Travel Dock include:

OWC Launches 13-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock for New MacBook Pro

When Apple launched their new MacBook Pros last week, many were disappointed by the fact that the new systems required a slew of new adapters as the new MacBook Pro now “courageously” only features USB Type-C ports. As most devices currently don’t use USB Type-C, this could require another hundred bucks worth of adapters.

One solution to this issue is OWC’s new 13-Port Thunderbolt 3 Dock which will allow a single USB Type-C port on the MacBook Pro to connect to a variety of devices and connectors. Among the ports included is USB 3.1 (Type-A), S/PDIF, FireWire 800, Gigabit ethernet, Thunderbolt 3, mini-DisplayPort, SD Card Reader, and [...]

Good News: New MacBook Pro Has Upgradeable SSD, Bad News: It’s Proprietary

Although Apple just launched their new MacBook Pros yesterday, the guys over at OWC already got their hands on the new 13″ base model MacBook Pro and of course they did the obligatory teardown to take a closer look.

Interestingly enough, one thing they discovered is that the SSD inside comes in a proprietary module sitting right underneath the speakers. Given that the SSD is in a module that isn’t completely soldered into the PCB, this means that the SSD can potentially be upgraded. Awesome.

Unfortunately, one look at the module and it’s pretty clear that the design is very proprietary. As such, it’ll likely take some time [...]

CES 2014: OWC Displays SandForce SF3700 based M.2 SSD, Promises Mac Upgradeability

CES 2014 was big for LSI SandForce and OWC, being one of SandForce’s oldest partners, had plenty to show for that as well.

Pulled directly from OWC CEO Larry O’Connor’s pocket, we were able to get a glimpse of a working sample of OWC’s upcoming M.2 form factor SandForce SF3700 based SSD. Hardware-wise, OWC M.2 SSD we saw featured a LSI SandForce SF3739 controller paired with SanDisk 19nm MLC flash with performance capable of up to 1,800MB/s read/writes.

Given OWC’s love for Apple, OWC has told us that they’re planning on producing these M.2 form factor drives in both PCIe x2 and PCIe x4 as drop-in replacements for [...]
