Rating: 5/5 MUST have external storage solution November 12, 2012 The new mercury elite pro is one of the most outstanding product OWC have ever produced. I must agree that this is the perfect storage solution for my needs. Mercury Elite Pro have solid design, fast interface connection and USB3.0 availability. The only thing that matters to me, is the firewire 800 cable which I think, it would be great if the cable itself has black rubber insulation like those cable included in the packaging, but so far everything looks great inside and out. I highly recommend this product rather than those branded external ones which have no quad interface.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from OWC Mercury Elite Pro eSATA, FireWire 400/800 & USB3.1 Gen 1/2.0/1.1 Enclosure Kit.
