High Portability
The Compact and Shock Resistant Design has the Mercury Elite Series going places! In addition, the OWC Mercury Elite Pro RAID series offers (1) eSATA port, (2) FireWire 800(1394B) ports, (1) FireWire 400 (1394A) port and 1 USB 2.0 port for Easy Plug and Play on ANY system! The OWC Mercury Elite Pro RAID even includes all types of cables!
Smart Sense
Power Saving Connection Sensor. A built-in sensor on the chipset detects when the solution's data cable is disconnected from a Mac or PC's native FireWire, USB, or eSATA interface and automatically spins down the solution to conserve energy during periods of disk inactivity. Ideal for notebook users who can go mobile without needing to reach around the solution to turn it off or unplug power cord.*

*This function is also available through an interface card, provided the card offers hot plug capability. LED and fan will remain on during disk inactivity.
From day one, the OWC Mercury Elite Series has been designed to be everything you'd hope for and more!
