An On-The-Go Price Drop Two-fer

Every Friday, we let you know of any price drop on OWC or NewerTech storage solutions that may have occurred during the week. Most of the time, it’ll be a single model drive that gets this reduction. This week, though, we’ve got price drops on two different On-The-Go Pro models for twice the savings!

Our OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro portable storage solutions provide convenient, flexible storage at a competitive price. Built for performance, reliability, and durability, Mercury On-The-Go models have been recognized with top reviews and include ‘Very Good’, ‘Gear of the Year’, and ‘Editor’s Choice’ award bestowments.

OWC Mercury On-the-Go Solutions require no external power; they reliably bus power via a single port—no Y-Cables or dual ports required! All of our solutions utilize the best qualified hard drive mechanisms for optimum performance and reliability. The On-The-Go’s shock absorbing design further protects the drive and your valuable data from external forces.

Other Features:

  • All connecting cables included
  • Bootable via all interfaces
  • Oxford chipsets (models with FireWire only)
  • Carrying Case included
  • Intech Hard Disk Speed Tools suite and Carbon Copy Cloner included
  • Full retail versions of Prosoft DataBackup III for OS X (a $59.95 retail value) and NovaStor NovaBACKUP® for Windows (a $49.95 retail value).
  • Industry leading 3 year OWC warranty

While all those features are noteworthy in and of themselves, these great new prices make the On-The-Go solutions even more desirable.

  • I challenge the “industry leading ” 3 yr warranty claim. Seagate now offers 5 yr warranties and Verbatim now is offering 7 yr warranties.

    I prefer ordering from OWC but the 7 yr Verbatim warranty is attractive.

    • The differences are always in the small print.
      For pure marketing we simply list as an industry-leading warranty and state the term. Maybe we should alter the phrasing and delve into the ‘why’ more, but our genuine warranty is what makes us different.
      OWC backs all of our products with an Industry-leading 48-hour turnaround time on all of our storage solutions which includes complimentary Level 1 data recovery for the first 6 months, and additional data recovery options available throughout the warranty period. Few, if any, other external hard drive manufacturers offer such a speedy or comprehensive warranty on their products.
      The best warranty is one you never have to use – and if the need should arise, one that is fulfilled and executed in a first class, full service way.
