High-performance and reliability come standard with the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual Drive RAID Enclosure.
Time-Tested
The Elite Pro Dual is a customer favorite in the OWC external drive lineup and has provided professional and enthusiasts alike with reliable, time-tested, large capacity and high-performance storage for over 8 years.
High-Performance, Easy to Connect
The Elite Pro Dual combines high-speed Oxford chipsets with two SATA drive bays, allowing you to install two SATA drives up to 4.0TB. Once installed, you can set up both internal drives in RAID 0, RAID 1, or span drive modes.

The Elite Pro Dual comes with two FireWire 800 ports, which are FireWire 400 compatible and a USB 3.0 / 2.0 port. It's also plug-and-play easy to connect to any Mac or PC.
Runs Cool & Quiet
The Elite Pro Dual utilizes a vented front plate and whisper quiet fan to cool the two internal drives by moving air through the enclosure. In addition, its rugged 2mm thick aluminum enclosure acts as a heat sink. This tandem cooling action keeps the Elite Pro Dual running coolly, quietly, and reliably.
Built to Last
A rugged, shock-resistant aluminum enclosure coupled with high-quality internal components ensures the Elite Pro Dual RAID is built to last. It also comes backed by a 1 Year OWC Enclosure Limited Warranty.
