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

Newer Technology, Inc. announced today its new miniStack external storage solution specifically designed to match the appearance and size of 2010 and later Mac mini computers. With the same 1.4″ H x 7.7″ W x 7.7″ D dimensions and aluminum finish, the two devices can be stacked together to conserve precious desktop workspace while the miniStack is used for storing or backing up large music, photo, and video libraries.
Stackable Design with Big Performance
While designed to complement the Mac mini, the miniStack is also an ideal space-saving, high-performance external drive that can be used with any Mac or PC. Users have found they can create a ‘power tower’ of storage capacity by stacking two or more miniStacks while still preserving desktop workspace. miniStack offers up to 4.0TB of storage with data rates up to 500MB/s thanks to a ‘Quad Interface’ of FireWire 800/400, USB 3.0, and eSATA ports.

It’s the middle of the month of April, and you know what that means. No, not that every “light” radio station and canned music service has that awful Celine Dion song seemingly stuck on endless repeat (though that does seem to be the case); it means it’s time for April’s garage sale.
This month we’re making a “splash” with a bunch of great deals you can “sink” your teeth into without having to pawn that improbably large diamond you’ve been hiding all these years.
Here’s just a few of the great deals this month.
As always, it’s “first-come, first served,” so grab these great deals while you can; quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and will disappear as they’re sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
To make sure you get the first notice for these and other specials, make sure you subscribe to our Tips & Deals Newsletter and Hot Deals blasts. They’re free to join and, unlike some other places, we don’t sell our subscriber lists to anybody.
