OWC Unveils Newest Mercury Elite Pro External Storage Solution

OWC announced the latest edition of its legendary Mercury Elite Pro external storage system for Mac, PC, Linux machines, Smart TVs, and PS4 and Xbox consoles. The 3.5-inch USB 3.2 5Gb/s hard drive system is a modern-day workhorse, delivering real-world performance up to 283MB/s and capacities up to 16TB to keep pace with the demands of everything from video editing projects, critical business data, and irreplaceable personal content to expanding PS4/Xbox One game storage and enjoying music/video content via a Smart TV.

The Essential External Storage Solution for Everyone

The Mercury Elite Pro kicked off OWC’s rich, storied history of storage solution innovations nearly 20 years ago, and it has successfully stood the test of time by continuing to offer an incomparable blend of performance, quality, and value in a single HDD storage solution.

The Mercury Elite Pro is up to virtually any task with its rugged, solid aluminum enclosure holding a high-performance 3.5-inch 7200RPM hard disk drive with up to 16TB capacity. It can be used for a variety of personal and business needs including pro-level video editing projects, Time Machine and File History backups of important data, migrating data from an existing machine to a new computer, expanding game storage of console gaming systems, or just freeing up space on a computer’s internal drive to improve performance.

Purposefully Designed

Offering an ideal blend of form and function, the Mercury Elite Pro’s fanless brushed aluminum chassis provides maximum heat dissipation to run quietly and cool, while the shock isolation design keeps the drive and your data safe and protected. It fits discreetly on any desktop with the included vertical orientation stand or place it horizontally with the included non-skid rubber feet.

Ready for Play

The Mercury Elite Pro isn’t just all work and no play. Besides saving and backing up computer data or functioning as a workhorse drive on-set or in the edit suite, it can be used to watch videos, listen to music, and view pictures through your gaming console or directly attached to your Smart TV.

  • Please, bring external portable SSD to boot Mac and work from it all day long with 4, 8 & 16 TB capacities. NO RAID inside! Thanks!

  • I’m not seeing how this is much different than the prior version. USB 3.2 5 Gbps is the same as USB 3.1 Gen 1, which is also 5 Gbps?

    That is, wouldn’t this be the exact same speed?
