Other World Computing announced today that it has expanded its OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini line with the addition of a new 3.0 TB drive that provides 50 percent more capacity than the previously-largest drive. The bus-powered Mercury Elite Pro mini is now available in 18 different hard drive or OWC Mercury SSD-equipped configurations. With interface options including USB 3.0, eSATA 6Gb/s, and FireWire, the Mercury Elite Pro mini delivers high performance storage to Mac or PC users in a portable plug-and-play footprint, with no AC adapter required.
Portable and Bus-Powered for Mobile Lifestyles
The Mercury Elite Pro mini features a fanless brushed aluminum enclosure and measures a compact 5.5″ L x 3.8″ W x 1.1″ H. Because it is bus-powered, the Mercury Elite Pro mini doesn’t require an AC adapter, so it’s ideal for on-the-go business professionals, creative/entertainment professionals, students, and anyone else needing to back up data, transport large files between computers, gain additional storage capacity, or perform video editing, photo editing, and live music recording. The fanless drive ensures super-quiet operation, an important criteria for creative professionals.
Built for Performance and Flexibility
The Mercury Elite Pro mini line offers a choice of the fastest 2.5″ SATA hard drive mechanisms, up to 7200 RPM; or OWC’s Mercury SSDs for demanding audio/visual, general data and backup needs. The USB 3.0 & FireWire 800 model offers connection flexibility among various computers; while those seeking the fastest interface offered in a portable drive will find their speed needs fulfilled by the 6Gb/s eSATA/USB 3.0 model. The Mercury Elite Pro mini can also be used with digital cameras and camcorders with USB 3.0/2.0 data ports for fast, on-location backups of images and video.
Backed by the Best Support in the Industry
The best product warranty is one a consumer should never have to use, but should the need occur, OWC’s reputation for superior support offers peace of mind to customers. All OWC Mercury Elite Pro minis come backed by free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support and a three-year limited warranty.
