Digital Camera World Verdict

Provided you don’t need more than 2TB storage on a single drive, the OWC Envoy Pro Elektron makes an excellent choice of portable SSD. It’s incredibly small and durable, comes with a sensible length USB-C cable (with an USB-A adapter attached) and it doesn’t leave you hanging around for ages while your files transfer.
