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 Super Fast Now! December 2, 2016 I replaced the HDD on my iMac 21.5 late 2013 with the SSD drive from OWC, and the speed is amazing. Would highly recommend it. The only thing I missed was that there was also a faster SSD but a bit more pricey [only $10 or $15 higher] sold by OWC, but somehow I missed it, and wish I would have gone for that one. I also upgraded the ram from 8GB to 16GB (got the boards from OWC), and it's unbelievable how much faster the computer has become. I went for 240GB SSD, as it was sufficient for my usage, but in hindsight, wish would have gone for the 500GB, since I could have transferred some of the files on my 3TB external HDD to the SSD, and retrieve them much more quickly when I needed them!

Reviewer: MrSerge Location: Philadelphia, PA Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: over 6 months
Rating: 3/5 Huge difference in performance but formatting takes a while! November 27, 2016 This hard drive is great - my macbook pro is way faster than before. The installation video is very clear and it took me about 10min to replace the original hard drive.

There a HUGE issue though. This is not stated anywhere: The hard drive comes unformatted, and once I replaces the original hard drive and turned the macbook pro back on, there was a big error message on the screen because there's no operating system installed. And this is no fun! I'm surprised that this fact is hidden from the customers.

But then there's a huge PLUS. I called OWC customer service, and these guys are very knowledgeable, friendly, and customer focused. The customer rep guided me through the process of bringing the new hard drive back to life, step by step, click by click. The process took hours to complete, but you only need to be on the phone for about 20min until you kick off the installation process (installation of the new operating system)

Overall, I like the product but the fact that I wasn't warned of this issue in advance, is a huge issue for me. Unfortunately, a novice will not be able to complete the formatting process.

Rating: 5/5 Long Term Review - Another great product from OWC - Great SSD November 14, 2016 I have had this drive in a Power Mac G5 for four years now. Up until about 4 months ago, this mac was my main computer in my office and was used for graphic design using all of the Adobe Creative Suite Software, audio production with Ableton Live, web production, video work in iMovie and many others. This drive gave my G5 new life and has performed flawlessly for the past four years. No issues whatsoever. The computer has been relegated to just an iTunes player and Video converter (from old digital camcorder tapes to dvd), but it still works great. I only upgraded because it's not an intel mac and the internet has become unusable with the browsers available to OS X version 10.5 which is the highest I can upgrade it to, so I got a new iMac. Anyway, these Mercury drives are great! I would buy again and again.....

Rating: 5/5 Like New! September 24, 2016 My 5 year old MBP seemed to be crawling after the last couple of OS updates. Word and Excel would take minutes to launch. With the new SSD, my MBP is like new. I even got to keep my old HD nice I bought the Drive Doubler too. The hardest part was figuring out what to move to the SSD since it was smaller than my HD. I put the system, apps and docs on the SSD and it's a whole new world/

Rating: 5/5 In the blink of an eye! September 4, 2016 I finally replaced the slug-slow hard drive in my Early 2011 13" MacBook Pro with this SSD. I simply can't believe the difference in speed and boot up time. I use to have to turn it on and go do something else while waiting, or just put it to sleep in the first place so I didn't have to wait.

Now it's less than 10 seconds from the time I hit the power button to the login screen coming up. Plus, once I log in it's ready to go, not slogging through all the startup routine.

With the low prices of these things and the massive improvement in performance, plus the ease of installation, it's simply crazy not to get one. Or two; dump the optical drive.

Rating: 5/5 Very Happy!! August 27, 2016 My Mac mini runs cool, and is lightning fast! I am extremely happy with the ordering process and shipping securely. I recommend a SSD to anyone who is looking at a new computer, or just speed up your existing Mac mini. The staff at OWC is always very helpful when I call.

Rating: 5/5 2nd SSD from OWC and can't say enough good things!! July 22, 2016 I purchased this SSD as a house warming gift for a friend. He has said the difference in speed and boot up times on his 2011 Macbook Pro is night and day.

Shipping to Canada is also a breeze as there is an option to have the customs fees included in the shipping cost.

Would highly recommend to anyone to use macsales.com

Haha. Seriously though, I've had this for a few years without any hiccup or complaint. Installation was easy into MacPro5,1 with OWC videos and toolkit.

Had a drive fail once and they were very responsive and helpful.

Nothing beats a painless RMA.

All other products have worked well.
