Wow, it seems that we’ve got price drops almost every other day or so lately. Well, we’ve got two more OWC storage solutions getting the same treatment today: the Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID FireWire 800/400+USB2 storage solution and the Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID “Quad Interface” eSATA/FireWire 800/FireWire 400/USB 2.0 & 1.1 storage solution. We’ll get to those prices in a moment.
OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro storage solutions utilize the latest high-performance, custom Oxford based bridges coupled with the latest Serial-ATA hard drive technology to provide overall superior reliability and performance.
The Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID series is designed with speed and high-capacity in mind. Getting its speed from a matched pair of hard drives set up in a RAID 0 (Striped), it’s now available with up to 4.0TB (4000GB) of capacity. Despite having two 3.5″ hard drives inside, it has a sleek and compact aluminum design of only 9.3″ Long x 2.8″ Wide x 5.6″ High. Both models feature two FireWire 800 ports, a FireWire 400 port and a USB 2.0/1.1 port. The “Quad Interface” model also features eSATA for high-speed data transfer.
Like all OWC storage solutions, these Elites are fully A/V Certified as well as EMC Retrospect Backup Certified for all your Audio/Video, backup (they’re Time Machine Ready), graphics, music, general data needs and more!
They are also fully bootable and provide excellent data accessibility via any of the available interface ports, depending on what’s available on the system(s) it’s being connected to. You don’t have to worry about connecting them either, since the OWC Elites come with the cables for all the interfaces they feature – no need to purchase cables separately.
All OWC storage solutions include the full retail version of Prosoft DataBackup III ($59 retail value) for OS X and NovaStor NovaBackup ($49 retail value) for Windows. They also include the complete Intech HD Speedtools performance suite and Carbon Copy Cloner. None of these applications are required to use the Elite, but excellent applications to have in your utilities library.
These solutions are further backed with an industry leading 3 Year Full Solution Warranty. A testament to their Quality, Performance, and Reliability.
