Designed for Professionals
Every detail was considered when designing the Mercury Elite Pro Quad. Built with a heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure, a whisper-quiet fan, and vibration-absorbing feet, the Mercury Elite Pro Quad runs cool and quietly, making it ideal for noise-sensitive environments. Front-facing LEDs provide an instant drive-activity snapshot, while the front panel access lock keeps your drives safe. You can even secure the entire drive with the rear-mounted Kensington compatible lock slot. On top of that, drive-equipped models undergo OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure to ensure that your drive arrives operating properly and ready to perform.
Capacity without Compromise
Compatible with 2.5" and 3.5" drives, the Mercury Elite Pro Quad's four universal drive bays let users pack up to a massive 72TB of storage. With this level of capacity and drive flexibility, you will not have to compromise when it comes to your storage.
