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…

Get Your Shot With The Replay XD1080 HD

Friday, February 15th, 2013 | Author:

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.
