As always, we’re hard at work on new exciting products here at Other World Computing. You can check out some our recent releases right here on the OWC Blog.
But it’s not only our newly released products that are turning heads lately. Some of our other existing products have been getting attention as well. See what some of the reviewers and customers have had to say recently about OWC gear.
OWC Solid State Drives
Our line of solid state drives have been winning awards for years for their performance and reliability. But OWC SSDs are still getting rave reviews directly from our customers. Article Continues…
Other World Computing has announced that it has expanded its line of Thunderbolt interface storage products with the addition of the OWC ThunderBay IV four-bay external high-performance drive.
High-Performance Four-Bay Design
The ThunderBay IV, available in capacities up to 16TB of total storage, adds tremendous storage capacity and throughput to any Mac or PC with a Thunderbolt port. Applications such as A/V post-production, photography, music, graphics, data management, and even Time Machine backups are enhanced with access to data at sustained data rates of up to 887MB/s read, 884MB/s write.
Flexible for Individual Storage Needs
The ThunderBay IV supports independent drive access of up to four installed drives, is fully RAID ready, and is ideal for RAID 0, 1, and 5 configurations. Even combinations of RAID, individual drive(s) or multiple RAID sets are possible with OWC ThunderBay IV. Article Continues…
Over recent years, Apple has slowly phased out optical drives from its Mac lineup. In fact, the non-Retina MacBook Pro is the only Mac that currently ships with an optical drive. And even if you have a MacBook Pro with an optical bay, you can choose to add a second drive in its place via the OWC Data Doubler with some models.
But owning a Mac without an internal optical drive or opting for more storage and performance with the OWC Data Doubler plus a second hard drive or SSD doesn’t mean you can’t still get the benefits from an optical drive. And luckily, OWC has the right solution for your optical needs! Article Continues…
The Mac officially turns 30 today, and Apple is celebrating in style with great home page imagery and cool Timeline and Your First Mac sections of the website. Of course, there’s also an awesome Apple video that celebrates the 30th birthday event.
Obviously, we’re huge “Mac heads” here at OWC, and we couldn’t be happier that the Mac has hit this major milestone. Many of us, and our customers, lived during the revolution and remember its launch. While some of us, and those newer to Mac, were born after 1984 and recognize that without the Mac, much of what we do today in computing would be vastly different. Just imagine if point and click didn’t exist, or if the Palm Treo was still the best “smartphone” around (iOS comes from OS X). It really is difficult to fathom. Article Continues…
Since the introduction of Thunderbolt as a port in 2011 Macs, Apple has slowly phased out its previous high-speed connection, FireWire. Now, with the release of the Late 2013 Mac Pro, only one shipping Mac model – the Mac mini – still has this connection.
While Thunderbolt promises even faster throughput and simplified connectivity, the loss of the FireWire port may leave the many users who upgrade their Mac – but still have useful legacy FireWire external hard drives and other peripherals – out in the cold. Luckily, OWC has the solutions you need to maximize your FireWire investment.
The Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter enables you to easily connect up to 63 externally powered FireWire 800 devices to your Thunderbolt port-equipped computer. The FireWire 800 port even provides up to 7W of power for your bus-powered external hard drive solution needs.
