Father’s Day is tough. Gift ideas are not easy to come by … and let’s face it, dad isn’t much help. So this year we’ve decided to go all out for dad’s big day. In this series leading up to June 16, we’ll give great gift ideas for all types of dads.
Dads around the world have been displaying their technological know-how for as long as they’ve been around. Dads have also been constantly bragging about their technological know-how for as long as they’ve been around.
Now is your chance to show dad what you’ve learned from him, and get him a gift that will make him look as tech-savvy as he feels. And there’s no easier way to do this than by giving him the upgrade that will help him get the most from his Mac or PC: an OWC Solid State Drive. Article Continues…
When the 2012 MacBook Pros were released, we found that SATA 3.0 SSDs—such as the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G and the Mercury Electra 6G—exhibited poor performance and reliability in the 13-inch model when installed in the optical bay via an OWC Data Doubler, while the same SSDs in the 15-inch model worked just fine.
This was similar to what happened in 2011, where (ironically enough) the 13-inch models were the only ones able to handle our Mercury 6G SSDs in the optical bay at first. Eventually, though, an Apple firmware update resolved the problems in the 15-inch and 17-inch models in the main drive bay.
Other World Computing announced today the OWC Mercury Electra MAX 3G 960GB SSD as the highest capacity 2.5″ Solid State Drive ever offered by OWC. This high-performance 3.0Gb/s SATA Solid State Drive offers Mac and PC users maximum storage capacity along with the test-proven, award-winning performance of Mercury brand SSDs to meet real-world software applications demands.
Maximizes Drive Bay Limited Machines
The majority of notebooks no longer contain an optical drive, so fading fast are the days where computer users could add a second internal drive with a product like the OWC Data Doubler for a Plug and Play capacity increase. For these single drive bay machines, as well as desktop machines with limited open bays, a computer user’s only solution is to add the biggest capacity drive available. The Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD offers the highest capacity available—960GB— in a 2.5″ Solid State Drive. Article Continues…
