Thursday, August 16th, 2012 | Author:

Other World Computing announced today it has expanded its OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini line with 33% more capacity to a new maximum of 2TB storage capacity. As the industry’s only ‘Quad Interface’ (FireWire 800/400, USB 2.0, and eSATA) or ‘Combo Interface’ (eSATA 6G and USB 3.0) bus-powered portable drive, the Mercury Elite Pro mini is now available in 14 different hard drive or OWC Mercury SSD-equipped configurations that deliver up to 600MB/s data rate storage/backup performance to Mac and PC users in a Plug and Play mobile footprint.

Portable and Bus-Powered for Mobile Lifestyles

Measuring a compact 5.5″ L x 3.8″ W x 1.1″ H, the Mercury Elite Pro mini offers portable storage capacity up to 2TB– enough space for up to 2 million JPEG photos, 1,000 DVD movies, 152 hours of digital video, or 700,000 MP3 songs – in its fanless brushed aluminum enclosure. Because it’s bus-powered, the Mercury Elite Pro mini doesn’t require an AC adapter, so it’s ideal for in-the-field business professionals, creative/entertainment professionals, students, and anyone else needing to back up data, transport large files between computers, gain additional storage capacity, and even perform video editing and live music recording.

Built for Performance and Flexibility

Designed to emulate the award-winning history of the larger desktop-sized Mercury Elite Pro, the Mercury Elite Pro mini portable storage solution line offers a choice of the fastest 2.5″ SATA hard drive mechanisms up to 7200RPM; or ‘faster in a flash’ OWC’s Mercury brand SSDs for demanding A/V, digital photography, professional music, graphics, general data, and Time Machine-ready storage needs. The ‘Quad Interface’ model offers connection flexibility among various systems; while those seeking the fastest interface offered in a portable drive will find their speed needs fulfilled by the 6G (6Gb/s) eSATA/USB 3.0 ‘Combo Interface’ model. The Mercury Elite Pro mini can also be used with digital cameras and camcorders with USB 3.0/2.0 data ports for fast, on-location backups of images and video. Article Continues…
