Mercury On-The-Go Pro First 750GB FireWire/USB Bus Powered Portable Storage Solution On Market

Fewer things get us as excited around here at OWC HQ than introducing a first to market product. Equally exciting is when this introduction continues a tradition of excellence. grant_otg

Case in point is our announcement today of the new OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro 750GB model as the first 750GB FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0 bus powered portable storage solution on the market.

With 750GB of storage capacity, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro now offers 50% more data storage capacity than existing models in the line and can hold up to 750,000 JPEG photos, 375 DVD movies, 57 hours of digital video, or 262,500 MP3 songs.

Don’t let the big capacity fool you…with its diminutive 3.5″ x 5.5″ x 1″ footprint, the OTG (as we lovingly call it here) is small enough to fit into a shirt pocket. And I can vouch for that as I was once pressed into duty as a model to illustrate this portable’s svelteness.

So, the  Mercury On-The-Go Pro has “big and littles” …like a true hot rod for your high performance data storage/backup travels. Speaking of hitting the road, the OTG  is ideal for for presentations, multimedia, law enforcement, surveyors, and other “mobile office” uses as it is bus powered which means no AC power adapter is needed.

But that’s only part of the story here…it’s the proven, eight year performance history of this line that shares equal billing with this new model. With FireWire 800 ports capable of delivering data transfer rates up to 100MB/s, that’s the kind of performance you can count on for real-time A/V editing, as well as making quick, convenient backups of images and video with storage capable digital cameras and camcorders that have FireWire and/or USB  ports.

And you know you’re on to something good when the leading Mac industry media source brings challenger after challenger to see if they can dethrone the reigning portable storage performance champ.

When you feel the need for speed and want the largest capacity FireWire portable drive on the market, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is truly Top Gun.
