For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with OWC to give away the Envoy Pro mini, a desktop class solid state drive that fits into a keychain-sized enclosure. The Envoy Pro mini measures in at 3.7 inches by 0.94 inches by 0.44 inches, but houses a 120GB or 240GB SSD.

Despite being able to fit comfortably in a pocket, the Envoy Pro mini is nearly twice as fast as the average thumb drive, reaching sustained speeds up to 427MB/s, so it's excellent for tasks regular thumb drives can't achieve, like quickly transferring large files.

The Envoy Pro mini, which is available directly from OWC, is priced at $117.99 for the 120GB version or $184.99 for the 240GB version, but one MacRumors reader will have a chance to get the 120GB version for free.

Seriously curious - since USB thumb drives are pretty much limited by the speed of the bus, how is this any better than a thumb drive?
By nature USB drives use slow flash memory. These drives have an ssd inside with a USB 3 bus so you get a significant speed bump.

Needs a way of attaching to a keyring.

Also, how does this connect? USB 2? 3? C? Thunderbolt? Something else?
USB3.

I already have this in the form of the muskin ventura ultra. The ****** sandforce controller is no better now than it ever was. At least muskin has a lifetime warentee, which I have used 3 times already.
I'm willing to bet OWC is still using the sandforce controller too.
