Ride the USB bus for On The Go Savings


While OWC Chris S. did a very nice and thorough examination of all the benefits to the FireWire 400/USB 2.0 “Combo Interface” Mercury On-The-Go Pro just last week, I wanted to make you aware of the biggest savings ride offered in this product.

While perhaps not as exciting from a speed thrills standpoint, the USB 2.0 only interface On-The-Go Pro models offer all the same great base benefits but at the lowest prices in the line.

Think of it this way…when you want to go somewhere, and don’t have a lot of green, you can still get to your destination by bus…and in this case, via USB 2.0 that’s found on nearly every legacy to modern computer.

So go ahead, climb aboard the bus…and enjoy the savings from us!

80GB 5400RPM w/ 2MB Buffer    –  $62.99
160GB 5400RPM w/ 8MB Buffer  –  $72.99
250GB 5400RPM w/ 8MB Buffer  –  $82.99
320GB 5400RPM w/ 8MB Buffer  –  $89.99
500GB 5400RPM w/ 8MB Buffer  –  $114.99

250GB 7200RPM w/ 16MB Buffer –  $92.99
320GB 7200RPM w/ 16MB Buffer –  $102.99
500GB 7200RPM w/ 16MB Buffer –  $159.99 (a $30 price drop)

And geez…even the 0GB “Add Your Own Drive” Kit is priced from $25.99. About the only way to travel with your data more economically would be by special Express!
