4.0TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD

Limited Edition Black Drive | 2.5" | Serial-ATA
A Legacy of Class-Leading Performance
The best performance and longevity in a 2.5-inch SATA SSD for every use
When the first Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD was launched nearly a decade ago, it was built to be the fastest, most reliable, and longest enduring 2.5-inch SATA Solid State Drive on the market. The evolution of OWC’s premier 2.5-inch SATA SSD continues that legacy with up to 5x faster performance over the duration of its capacity versus other drives. If you have a Mac or PC with a 6G SATA drive bay, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD is the fastest 2.5-inch SSD available today.
Starts Fast, Stays Fast
Even though many SSDs use low cost, less robust components in their design, they can still offer enticing short term bust speeds which are perfectly suitable for light duty uses. However, these drives are not designed to deliver consistent sustained speeds over their capacity rating, which results in a dramatic slowdown to even hard drive speeds under demanding use.
The fifth generation of Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD was built to start fast and stay fast. Its development began with using the best flash storage components and technology available. Next, after being nearly completely filled to capacity with data, it had to deliver the same high speed as if it were empty. This drive doesn’t flinch at any time or capacity level and drop read/write speeds like other drives do…it easily handles the most extreme, mission-critical uses you can throw at it.
Get Your Money’s Worth
When a low-priced “commodity” built SSD’s performance drops off significantly, many users replace the drive far before all its storage capacity is used to regain that “like new” speed feeling. The Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD was engineered to keep you working full speed ahead over the duration of the drive to deliver an overall lower cost of ownership.
Workhorse Revitalizer
With your investment in apps and time getting that beloved workhorse Mac or PC configured just the way you like; it makes sense to get all the use you can out of the machine before retiring it. By revitalizing your Mac or PC with a Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD, you’ll transform your machine with like-new performance with the best performance upgrade available. From faster boots and application launch times to greatly improved system responsiveness, you’ll love using your “new” computer for a fraction of the cost of buying the latest model.
Go Big or Go Home
Want to use the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD in a computer, dock, camera, or external storage enclosure with a 9.5mm height drive bay? Unlike other brand 7mm SSDs that either don’t include an adapter or have an edge spacer with limited adhesive surface, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD comes with a full-sized spacer for 100% secure and compatible use.

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.

September 1, 2020 I got the 2.0TB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 2.5-inch 7mm SATA 6.0Gb/s Solid-State Drive for my wifes MacBook 2010 along with 16.0GB (2x 8GB) PC3-8500 DDR3 kit for 27" iMac 2009, Mac mini 2010, MacBook 2010, & MacBook Pro 13" 2010. It took an unusable piece of plastic and transformed it into a blazing rocket. She should be able to get a few more years of use out of it now. Installation was very easy thanks to the handy videos hosted by OWC.

Rating: 5/5 Fixed the Issue July 28, 2020 I have a iMac late 2015 with 8 GB ram that was running very slow. 15 seconds for "about this mac" to open. The ram can not be upgraded so I replaced the hard drive with a OWC solid state. It now runs much faster & opens apps like it should have been doing. So if you have a slow iMac, installing a OWC SSD might be the answer as it was for me.

Rating: 5/5 Great SSD! July 25, 2020 I'm a senior citizen, hardly an IT guy, but I can follow instructions well enough. In 2013, I installed a 480GB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD in my refurbished MacBook Pro 2012.. Served me quite well but after seven years I was running out of storage and decided to upgrade to this 1.0TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD. Installation was a fun, not too challenging science project but pretty easy thanks to the excellent OWC tutorial video. When I migrated from my old SSD, however, Apple forced a card on me to install Catalina. I'd been quite happy with High Sierra but figured, why not, it's the latest iOS, and went with it. Big mistake. Lot of apps wouldn't open and some I depended on became quirky. Worst of all my MacBook was running alarmingly hot doing routine tasks. I was afraid I'd gotten a bum SSD but, on a hunch, downgraded from Catalina to High Sierra. Not easily, I should add. Anyway, now my MacBook Pro runs smoother, quieter and COOLER than ever! Great SSD! Also, a phone call to OWC's tech support was quite helpful.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent Performance for 4K/60p Video June 18, 2020 I have been testing this SSD on my Atomos Ninja V setup to record 4K/60p out of my Lumix G9. In 4 days of heavy testing I can report that there is not a single dropped frame. I am very happy with my purchase. Also the SSD came extremely well packed. It has the look and feel of a professional grade product and early testing bears this out.

Rating: 5/5 Don’t hesitate, just get it and thank yourself later April 27, 2020 I upgraded my wife’s MacBook Pro with an SSD with the hopes it would speed up her boot times. There were many times she would be waiting for 5 minutes for it to load up. She was ready to throw it out the window.

After following the guides and installing the new ssd, her MacBook Pro now loads up in seconds. It’s literally night and day. I was blown away with what a difference having a high quality ssd would make. It’s been in her laptop for a little over a year and a half and it’s been solid. No issues whatsoever.

I called with a question during install of a ssd and memory upgrade on my iMac and OWC was quick to help me.

Rating: 5/5 Very good SSD October 23, 2019 I had trouble seeing the SSD with the Disk Utility while it was installed inside. As an external disk it had no problem being detected but as soon as it was stuck inside whatever I tried (cloning, internet recovery) wouldn't help. It wasn't recognized with the Disk Utility for some reason.

A support assistant suggested I needed a new internal SATA cable and I risked to purchase it. Now the SSD is alive and kicking. Works well and supports TRIM (not natively). Can't find the words to thank you enough. With Mecrury Electra SSD and 16 GB of RAM my Macbook feels really strong.

Rating: 5/5 This is a great and speedy reliable drive. September 30, 2019 This is an honest review, love this drive and just ordered another. After 6.7 years this drive started to fail on me and i just ordered another. I work in a heavy usage audio environment and reading and writing a ton of data almost every day of the year. I continue to buy OWC as opposed to other brands as i know had i had any issue in warranty they would have made it painless to replace whereas if it were say another huge company you need to go through hoops. Love their customer service also, great people. Also i was thinking about udpating to a new pcie based ssd instead of using the mac tray sata so this gave me an excuse to get another speed bump.

Rating: 5/5 Fast and Reliable September 30, 2018 Swapped out an old HHD on my 2011 MBP. Start up times and launching programs seemed to take a rather long time. I looked at the reviews of this Mercury Extreme Pro 6G SSD and I did not read a bad review. I am curious as to how long these SSD last in terms of R/W, but so far I am greatly pleased by the speed. My old MBP operates so much faster these days. As simple install and a reasonable price is hard to beat.

Response from OWC, Call Center October 4, 2018 Hello! Glad to hear the SSD is working well for you. We use the highest quality NAND in our drives, so this should definitely outlast the computer it is in now, and possibly even the next one!
