Episode Tease

One of the companies that always seems to find their way to our coverage is Other World Computing. The company is known for their Apple products and accessories, and this year they certainly did not disappoint.

Among their offering this year is a 240GB SSD, with a twist: it is designed to work like a USB 3.0 flash drive. The concept is not a new one, with hard drives in small USB form factors, but OWC has built the product to match their customer base. It has a brushed aluminum body and retails for $199. A 480GB companion will be available soon.

In addition to the drive, OWC showed off a laptop docking station. Unlike most docks, this device runs on Thunderbolt 2 instead of USB. It offers two Thunderbolt 2 ports, five USB 3.0 ports, as well as FireWire 800, HDMI, gigabit Ethernet and audio in/out. Other than Thunderbolt support, there is nothing particularly unique about this device, except for the $299 price point.
