Video Review: Versatile On-The-Go Pro Impressive for ‘Road Warriors’

The stylish and versatile Mercury On-The-Go Pro incorporates shock-isolation technology to give your most important data the maximum protection it deserves.

But it’s not just looks and protection; the bus-powered OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro drive is also versatile. Packing a one-two punch of super fast USB 3.0 and FireWire 800, the OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro has what it takes for working cross platform.

Dave Taylor of tech site Ask Dave Taylor recently reviewed the 1.0TB 7200 RPM OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro USB 3.0 & 2.0/FireWire 800 and came away impressed by the storage solution’s performance and flexibility.

Check out the video below for Taylor’s full review.

  • USB 3.0: Bitrate 5 Gbit/s (625 MB/s)
    FW800: The full IEEE 1394b specification supports data rates up to 3200 Mbit/s (i.e., 400 megabytes/s)

    Pretty sure you’re wrong about the speed comparison where you say something to the effect of @1:20, “When I get back to the office I plug it into my desktop system using the much faster FW800.” But correct me if I am wrong.

    Sorry for the double post.

  • Fire Wire 800 is not faster than USB 3.0 if your computer (Mac / Windows / Linux) support for USB 3.0.
