Standard Mechanism

    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.

Rating: 5/5 Like a new Mac November 23, 2016 Using the Mercury OTG SSD as the boot drive for a late-2014 Mac Mini with a HDD. Got the 1TB size to hold all applications, pictures, music, etc. The system is now blazing fast, and I can't detect any difference between this home setup and the Mini with internal SSD that I have at work. The internal HDD is now the TimeMachine drive.

One thing is that the plastic case seems to amplify the blue activity light, which matters in the evening when there aren't a lot of lights turned on. I put a piece of electrical tape on the case in front of the light, and that helps somewhat. If there's a way to turn off the light, I haven't found it.

Reviewer: OldWorldComputing
Rating: 4/5 you may need the AC adapter November 20, 2016 I have several of these drive enclosures. They're very handy for tossing in the laptop bag. I also use them for rotating off-site backups. My only complaint is that, with some drives, they may require more power than is provided by USB or Firewire, which means you have to carry one of the AC adapter wall-warts AND be near a power outlet. This reduces the portability considerably. This drawback is barely implied by a tiny footnote on the product page, and is more explicit in the documentation that comes with the product. I suggest you buy one of the AC adapters and keep it with the unit, at least until you're sure the drive works reliably without it.

(I encountered the problem with HGST 1TB drives; some work without the AC adapter, some don't. Frustrating, especially until I figured out what the problem was.)

Rating: 5/5 Solid drive, flexible, portable solution November 3, 2016 This is my primary on-site backup drive. All my OWC drives, SSD or otherwise, have been very reliable. I recommend them over any other brand except Apple—and they are generally less expensive than Apple branded products.

I particularly like the drive enclosure. Very sturdy, well designed and made. The built in connection flexibility makes connection to almost anything easy, without adapters. The power switch is a nice touch, too.

Only downsides to this package are the took kit, which is kind of chintzy, though the little pry tool is very handy for getting components out of a laptop. The carrying case is well made, but the inner partition (to separate cables and drive enclosure) is too floppy and unnecessary considering the near impervious drive enclosure.

Rating: 5/5 TimeMachine Drive Replacement July 23, 2016 I bought this drive to replace the 2TB external drive (not an OWC product) TimeMachine drive that Drive Genius told me was failing after only 5 months!

As an aside, no drive lasts forever so I'm happy to have another quality drive case for when the inevitable happens.

Rating: 4/5 Good product but cable too short June 13, 2016 This portable hard drive works well, efficiently , and quietly as part of my backup strategy. I trust OWC products from long experience with them.

Unfortunately there is one disappointment. The FireWire connection cable that came with the hard drive is much too short to be truly useful. It is difficult to use it with my iMac and reach the drive sitting on my desk near the computer. OWC should provide a longer cable for this product.

Other than that. it's a fine product.

Rating: 4/5 Silent and easy setup. May 30, 2016 A small. silent and cool running unit. Using it as a redundant backup drive for my OWC Elite Pro Dual 6Tb which houses all the work files freed from my 1Tb 2010 iMac. Lots of open space left on all the hard drives now. It lacks a Thunderbolt port so it cannot connect directly to the Elite Pro Dual and has to be routed by my iMac via USB2 for slower than desired backups. As a photographer, I leave it always connected for frequent backups of work in progress.The OWC tech person said that should not be a concern. The resiliency of the clear plastic housing is a concern. The large bright LED is annoying.

Rating: 5/5 So surprised at the speed! May 15, 2016 I knew what to expect with the body, the weight and the sturdiness of this drive, but I had no idea of how good the speed would be. With previous 500 OWC Mercury On-The-Go USB drives, I always had dependability in making a clone of my internal hard drive, but the process usually took an hour, at least. The first few times I used this new drive, I was convinced that something was wrong...the entire process takes less than 10 minutes! It's wonderful! Totally worth the extra cost and I am totally happy and satisfied with the performance of the device.
