OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual USB3.0 / eSATA (8TB)

The Mercury Elite Pro Dual USB3.0 / eSATA  is the best dual-drive hardware RAID solution for creative workflows, archiving of projects and system back-ups where reliability and versatile performance are important. Simply mount two fast hard drives, which are easily configurable in several RAID modes with emphasis on the easily accessible switch, connect the Mercury Elite Pro Dual seamlessly to every work environment.

Reliable hardware RAID maximizes the full potential of two 3.5” 7200RPM hard drives in the Mercury Elite Pro Dual USB3.0 / eSATA and comes configured in high-speed RAID 0 mode for maximum supported transfer speeds of your devices. With speeds up to 390MB/s, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual USB3.0 / eSATA is fast enough for HD video workflows. Configure the Mercury Elite Pro Dual to RAID 1 for extra security of mirrored data.

The Mercury Elite Pro Dual delivers both superfast USB3.0 as well as an eSATA port and offers much connectivity and versatility for your equipment because of it. A second generation, easily accessible and sandblasted aluminum chassis with fast fans, provides quiet power. You can also, because of the integrated LEDs, instantaneously see the status of your RAID, and intelligent power management will save energy and reduce wearing by automatically powering down the hard drives when inactive.
