OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro Bus-Powered Portable Drive Now Offers Up To 1.5TB Storage/Back Up Capacity

Thursday, November 15th, 2012 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today its award-winning OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro bus-powered portable storage solution has expanded its storage and back up capacity by 50% to a massive 1.5TB. That’s enough space to hold up to 1.5 million JPEG photos, 750 DVD movies, 115 hours of digital video, or 526,000 MP3 songs in your back pocket.

The new Mercury On-The-Go Pro 1.5TB model is available in two interface configurations:

With its USB 3.0 ‘SuperSpeed’ interface, a Mercury On-The-Go Pro equipped with an OWC Mercury Electra 6G Solid State Drive up to 480GB capacity can deliver real-world, benchmark-proven data transfer speeds up to 285MB/s.

Pocket-Sized and Bus Powered – Ideal for the Mobile Office

Designed for the active “On-The-Go” computer user who needs the highest capacity and fastest portable storage solution available on the market, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro measures a compact 3.5″x 5.5″ x 1″ in size. 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.

Works with Macs, PCs, and Digital Devices

Featuring a variety of the latest and backward compatible FireWire and USB interfaces, the Plug-and-Play ready Mercury On-The-Go Pro can be used with current and legacy Macs and PCs for additional storage capacity, transporting large files between multiple computers and real-time A/V editing. The drive can also be used with storage capable digital cameras and camcorders with FireWire and/or USB data ports for quick, convenient backups of images and video while on the road.

Backed by the Best Support in the Industry
The best product warranty is one a consumer should never have to use, but should the need occur, OWC’s stellar reputation for support offers peace of mind ownership. All OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro storage solutions come fully backed by free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support and a three-year warranty which includes a 48-hour repair turnaround time with up to one year of complimentary Level 1 data recovery service.

The Mercury On-The-Go Pro has been the undisputed leader in portable drive performance since the first model was introduced 11 years ago,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO, Other World Computing. “Expanding its capacity by 50% underscores our commitment to providing a best-in class portable solution.”

      Using an OWC Electra 6G SSD, how would the performance (over USB3.0) of this enclosure compare with the Mercury Elite Pro Mini?
