Price Drop: Elite-AL Pro RAID

We try and post our price drops on Fridays here on the OWC Blog. Sometimes, like last week, we get a “two-fer” when two models of a drive see price reductions across the board. This week, we’ve got another “two-fer” price drop, this time on the OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro RAID storage solutions. Add that to the drop on the NewerTech Guardian MAXimus, and we’ve got a “Two-plus-one-fer” drop on RAID enclosures this week; all you need to decide is if you want a the security of a RAID 1 (Guardian MAXimus) or the speed and size of a RAID 0 (Elite-AL Pro RAID).

OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual-Bay RAID solutions sport a sleek and compact aluminum design, measuring 9.3″ x 2.8″ x 5.6″. The Triple-Interface model features FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 connections; The “Quad” Interface model adds eSATA as well.

Like all of our storage solutions, the Mercury Elite-AL Pro FireWire  offers incredible performance along with great versatility. Key features include:

  • Oxford 924 based performance bridge solution
  • Large data buffer up to 32MB
  • Fully bootable, ideal for applications, A/V, Photos, Music, etc.
  • Certified for Audio/Video and Time Machine
  • Attractive & compact shock resistant Aluminum design
