Want to Win a OWC Mercury Solid State Drive?

Monday, August 20th, 2012 | Author:

If you’re going to the Flash Memory Summit starting tomorrow and running through Thursday the 23rd at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, you very well could have an OWC Mercury SSD to call your very own.

Of course, you’ll have to first visit the LSI Booth (#624-626) and enter in their raffle. There will be a drawing every 30 minutes and supplies of OWC drives are limited, so there is a chance you may win something from some “other” manufacturer (ewwwwwww), so there’s still a lot of luck involved.

However, if the stars, the Fates, Lucky the Leprechaun, or whatever determines the outcomes of contests are with you, you could walk out of the Santa Clara Convention Center the proud owner of an OWC SSD.
