Since we’ve started with the price dropping blog posts around here, we’ve never before seen a product win the “Triple Crown” of price reductions. On June 25th, we watched as the 4.0TB OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID FireWire 800/400+USB2 storage solution triumphantly crossed the finish line with a $70 price drop. On August 27th, we marveled as this same 4.0TB unit gave an impressive victory with an additional $100 knocked off the price. Now, we’re pleased to report that one more $60 price drop today will have earned this product a $230 total reduction in price since Summer!
