OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro Bus-Powered Portable Drive
Other World Computing announced today the 'Triple Interface' model of its award-winning OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro bus-powered portable storage solution now features a USB 3.0 'SuperSpeed' port which is also USB 2.0 backwards compatible. Complemented by two FireWire 800/400 ports, the new USB 3.0 capability enables the Mercury On-The-Go Pro to deliver real-world, benchmark-proven data transfer speeds up to 285MB/s. All that speed is housed in a pocket-sized drive offering up to 1.0TB of storage capacity-enough space to hold up to one million JPEG photos, 500 DVD movies, 76 hours of digital video, or 350,000 MP3 songs. In addition to the FireWire 800/400 and USB 3.0/2.0 'Triple Interface' model, a USB 3.0/2.0 only model is also available. Both models offer a choice of a 5400RPM or 7200RPM hard drive in capacities up to 1.0TB, or an OWC Mercury Electra 6G Solid State Drive up to 480GB capacity, and are available immediately priced from $89.99.
Designed for the active "On-The-Go" computer user who needs the largest and fastest portable storage solution available on the market, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is compact at 3.5"x 5.5"x 1" in size -- small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, yet big enough to offer up to 1TB of capacity. Stylishly engineered in a sleek, acrylic enclosure, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is bus-powered, so it doesn't require an AC adapter, which makes it ideal for presentations, multimedia, law enforcement, surveyors, and other "mobile office" uses. Additionally, notebook users with internal 5400RPM drives will find that using the Mercury On-The-Go Pro 7200RPM and SSD models as a start-up disk offers faster system boot-up and overall system performance.
