It’s finally over … you’ve mustered up the motivation to finish filing your taxes. You’ve triple-checked that you entered all the right figures, found out whether you’re getting a refund, and better yet, found out your not getting audited. Now all that’s left is deciding what to do with that glorious refund.
Fortunately, the end of this year’s tax season coincides with the April OWC Garage Sale. And as always, this edition of the sale is packed with some great finds that would make even the biggest IRS targets smile.
Here are just a few of the great deals in April’s Garage Sale:
If you’re planning on heading to The NAB Show next month or still looking for a good excuse to attend, OWC has an offer that might make your decision a bit easier.
Register for the 2013 edition of the digital media trade show by Friday, March 22, and enter OWC’s special code “LV5199″ during the checkout step for the Exhibits-Only registration, and you’ll receive an Exhibits-Only pass – a $150 value – free! You can also share this code with any friends or digital media buffs who are planning on going to the show that’s set for April 8-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. But the offer expires soon, so you’ll need to act fast.
Of course, OWC will once again be well-represented, setting up camp at Booth #SL14811. Among the products we will be demonstrating is Jupiter scalable storage solution. Attendees will even be able to load up an Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro project of their own right on the show floor to see Jupiter’s amazing speed first hand.
We hope you can take advantage of this great offer, and we’ll see you there!

Video cameras play a crucial role in documenting our lives and experiences. It’s important to have a portable camera that’s versatile and can capture quality footage and frames where ever you go, and during any situation that may arise.
For instance, it’s essential to have a rugged camera that will survive your treacherous hikes up the stairs to record your cat chasing that elusive laser pointer. And you need a small, mountable camera so you can get a discreet, secure view of what your cat does all day while you’re gone. But most of all, you need a camera that’s light and mobile enough to strap directly on to your cat so you can bravely explore your terrifying, spider-filled basement at night.
OK, unlike most of the Internet, you do more than just record your cats with your video camera. And for your own extreme adventures, having the ultimate portable camera is essential to keep you prepared for any footage that you need to get. And the Replay XD1080 HD Video Camera Complete System is just that. Article Continues…
While the world continues to wait for the first major update of Apple’s Mac Pro line since 2010 (CEO Tim Cook has said it will be sometime this year), others are taking matters into their own hands, opting to give their current machine a boost. And of course, Other World Computing has the perfect upgrade to help you get most out of your current Mac Pro
As outlined recently on his blog, technology enthusiast Randy Noland installed an OWC Mercury Accelsior PCIe SSD in his 2010 Mac Pro to get faster throughput when editing video. And not only does his speed test show his Mac Pro gets the boost it needs compared against two platter-based 7200 RPM drives or a SSD, it gives him “incredible” results.
That’s because the the Mercury Accelsior uses the fastest data interface available in a Mac Pro or PC — the PCIe slot — for speeds that go well beyond even 6Gb/s. This allows nearly 3x the performance vs. a SSD in a SATA 2.0 3Gb/s drive. In fact, the Mercury Accelsior can deliver up to incredible 820MB/s read and 763MB/s write speeds! This blazing speed makes the Mercury Accelsior ideal for I/O-intensive apps like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, or Avid Pro Tools to render, capture or process, and it makes booting and application launches become nearly instantaneous.
Additionally, as Lloyd Chambers of Mac Performance Guide points out, the Mercury Accelsior is bootable, while all four of the Mac Pro drive bays remain available for high capacity hard drives!
And since its PCIe-based and compatible with both Macs and PCs, you can still use your Mercury Accelsior when you get a new machine — whether it’s that much rumored 2013 Mac Pro update or not.
