Release Candidate (RC) firmware set

There are two kinds of firmware for SSDs Mass Production (MP) and Release Candidate (RC). Prior to an MP firmware release, there are beta firmware releases and an RC firmware release. Often, the RC is the same as the MP release, however there can be small changes and bug fixes made between the two. OWC has evaluated the RC for the 6Gb/s SandForce 2281 Processor and found it to be stable with no issues reported during our testing. However, as with any evolutionary product, issues may surface as different usages and configurations are employed and it is important to understand that there will be further updates and revisions.

Since no firmware update is currently offered for the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD, no update page exists. To see the typical steps involved with a self performed field firmware update, please visit our 3Gb/s product update page at: http://eshop.macsales.com/Customized_Pages/Framework.cfm?page=sf_firmware.html

It is important to note that the current firmware update tool requires the use of Windows XP/Vista/7. OWC is currently working on a Mac OS based update tool, but we do not have an exact availability date.

  1. 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending upon operating environment (typically 5-10% less). The actual total capacity will depend on your own defined file settings/preferences. 
  2. In terms of standard gigabytes, 1GiB ≈ 1.074GB and refers to the actual formatted capacity of shown under Mac OS 10.5 or earlier and Microsoft Windows OS.
  3. Specific application environments such as temperature and duty cycle will affect the overall reliability.
  4. Specifications provided by SandForce.
  5. Temperature reporting is currently an unsupported feature because due to the operating characteristics of SSDs, it is highly unlikely one would ever exceed an OWC Mercury SSD's stated operating temperature ceiling of 158F/70C. However, we are looking into supporting this feature in the future via a firmware update. Firmware updates can be found here: http://eshop.macsales.com/tech_center/OWC/SSD.

Rating: 5/5 My new SSD. Its quiet. Its fast. January 15, 2018 I'm really happy with my new SSD. Its quiet. Its fast. It breathes new life into my 2009 era Mac Pro. After a month or so, I'll be erasing and removing my old hard drive. As advertised, installation was straight forward. The backup and drive copy took longer then my Mac estimated. This adventure has been well worth the time and expense.

Rating: 5/5 It's A No-brainer August 11, 2017 The installation was fast and easy. After partitioning it and formatting it, I decided not to use Migration Assistant to populate it, but cloned my system drive onto it using Techtool instead. A month later, no problems, and I don't expect any. I will be buying more of these in the future.

Using the instructions on the MacSales website to backup with timemashine and then just change the drive and restore all my data from the copy was a very easy task. Now my computer is like new and MacSales have a happy customer.

Rating: 4/5 Seems to work as advertised December 14, 2016 The screws were a little tight on the sides of the sled, had me worried, but eventually got them in place. The overall cost of the SSD seems a little expensive, as one of the best selling Samsung or Crucial SSD's are going for around $140 for 500GB. Overall I am satisfied with the SSD.

Rating: 5/5 Very fast & easy to install on a Pro July 21, 2016 Bought this SSD along with a used Mac Pro. I’ve used several of these for my laptops and iMac. It went into the Pro easiest of all and really made it fly. I then re-installed it into the lower “CDROM” bay using an OWC multi-mount which allowed me to have all four upper drive bays free for other disks.

Rating: 5/5 Absolute must! July 18, 2016 Thanks to the SSD my MacPro boots within 10 seconds, and apps start freaking fast. Very snappy.

The installation was breeze thanks to the included tools. And the tray with the SSD snapped perfectly into the board.

I can only recommend to all to get this SSD-tray-combo, and I love the OWC-blue. You can easily spot it when you open the tower.
