Benchmarking the OWC Mercury Accelsior_E2

Friday, April 19th, 2013 | Author:

The original OWC Mercury Accelsior has been a phenomenal product. To put it simply, those who’ve used it – they never look back. However, we wanted to improve upon the Accelsior’s design by offering both internal and external storage capability, so earlier this week we announced the OWC Mercury Accelsior_E2.

This new Accelsior model again offers extremely fast internal storage and adds fast external storage capability with the addition of two 6Gb/s eSATA expansion interfaces. Now you truly can have the best combination of speed, capacity, and connectivity for simultaneous internal and external storage performance.

And you aren’t limited to needing to have an available PCIe slot in a Mac Pro or PC to benefit from the Accelsior_E2. By installing it into an OWC Mercury Helios Thunderbolt expansion chassis, you can turn the Accelsior_E2 into the ultimate external SSD for Thunderbolt technology enabled Mac mini, iMac ,and MacBook machines.

“So, how does it perform?” you might be asking yourself. We’ve put the OWC Mercury Accelsior_E2 through its paces here at the OWC Test Lab and here’s what we’ve come up with: Article Continues…

Newer Technology Announces New miniStack Storage Solution Design As The Perfect Complement To Apple Mac mini

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012 | Author:

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.
