Hot on the heels of being highly acclaimed by Lloyd Chambers of Mac Performance Guide, the OWC Mercury Extreme SSD just won an Editor’s Choice award over at TweakTown.
While Mac Performance Guide, not surprisingly, concerns itself with Macs, TweakTown comes from a wider, PC-oriented view. As such, all the tests on the Mercury Extreme were performed on a Windows box, and merits judged on its comparison to others in a Windows environment.
The testers were quite impressed with the Extreme’s price, availability and warranty, things that apparently leave much to be desired on “the other side” but OWC customers get every day! Also of great importance to them was the SandForce SF-1200 controller, as that’s one of the best performing SSD controllers on the market today.
While I’ll leave the details of the test for your own reading pleasure, I think their summary says it best:
The OWC Mercury Extreme Enterprise SSD is priced to sell, offers incredible performance and has a warranty that is longer than most, if not all of their competitors. This is the SandForce SF-1200 you should buy if shopping right now.
Yeah… I’d say that’s about right. In fact you should go get one now!
For for the best-value upgrades, whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, your best bet is OWC!
