Price Drop: Elite-AL Pro RAID

We try and post our price drops on Fridays here on the OWC Blog. Sometimes, like last week, we get a “two-fer” when two models of a drive see price reductions across the board. This week, we’ve got another “two-fer” price drop, this time on the OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID storage solutions. Add that to the drop on the NewerTech Guardian MAXimus, and we’ve got a “Two-plus-one-fer” drop on RAID enclosures this week; all you need to decide is if you want a the security of a RAID 1 (Guardian MAXimus) or the speed and size of a RAID 0 (Elite-AL Pro RAID).

OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay RAID solutions sport a sleek and compact aluminum design, measuring 9.3″ x 2.8″ x 5.6″. The Triple-Interface model features FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connections; The “Quad” Interface model adds eSATA as well.

Like all of our storage solutions, the Mercury Elite-AL Pro FireWire  offers incredible performance along with great versatility. Key features include:

  • Oxford 924 based performance bridge solution
  • Large data buffer up to 32MB
  • Fully bootable, ideal for applications, A/V, Photos, Music, etc.
  • Certified for Audio/Video and Time Machine
  • Attractive & compact shock resistant Aluminum design
  • All connecting cables included
  • Prosoft DataBackup III (OS X), NovaStor NovaBackup (Windows), Carbon Copy Cloner (OS X), and Intech Speed Tools (8.6-10.6.x) included
  • Fully Mac & PC compatible
  • Industry leading 3 year solution warranty

While speed, capacity and versatility are all wonderful things to have, what’s really exciting are these new, lower prices:

“Quad” Interface

Triple Interface

Of course, “Build Your Own” OWC Elite-AL Pro RAID SATA HD x 2 enclosure kits are also available from $94.99

  • Don’t forget to promote your “independent mode” capable OWC Mercury Elite-AL FireWire 800/400 + USB2 Pro Hardware RAID Dual-Drive Enclosure.

    I’ve got 2 of them in use now with 4 independently mounted 2TB drives.

    They rock. :-)
