Mercury Elite Dual Bays Now More Attractive Than Doublemint Twins

Thursday, October 1st, 2009 | Author:

DoublemintDrivesDo remember those old but memorable Doublemint chewing gum ads on TV?  The ads had a jingle with the famous phrase “Double your pleasure…Double your fun…” which lends itself perfectly to today’s examination of the OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay RAID Solutions.

Two drives for doubling your performance storage capacity up to 4TB and two interface models to double your purchase options!

Today’s spotlight rests on the “Quad Interface” model. Its custom Oxford 936DS chipset provides interface flexibility along with sustained data rates of well beyond 200MB/s. That kind of performance makes the Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay an excellent choice for a wide range of data storage needs like backup (Time Machine ready), graphics, music, and even live High-Definition Video capture! Speaking of video capabilities, these professional grade solutions are fully A/V Certified, EMC Retrospect Backup Certified, and Pro Tools Compatible.

With two FireWire 800 ports, one FireWire 400 port, one USB port, and one eSATA port (hence the “Quad” moniker) and all interface connection cables included, the Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay Raid Solutions are ready for Plug & Play use with Macs and PCs available today as well as in the future.

Performance can also mean knowing exactly what you’re getting and what the expected performance should be. Unlike the competition, OWC provides detailed information of the exact hard disk drive models you’ll find inside our solutions (no mystery meat here) as well as performance throughput test data to see just what you can expect from these fastest in class solutions.

And if their sleek, compact aircraft grade Aluminum housings aren’t more captivating than those TV twins, check out the attractive price drops we’ve given the Quad models:

There are so many great things going for the Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay Solutions that it almost makes me want to sing about it. But that might pit me against a much better Chicago area commercial legend.
