Jan 6, 2019 | LAS VEGAS


OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, today announced its 2019 family of Mercury Elite Pro Mini storage solutions. Perfect for client meetings, studio sessions and on-set downloads, the OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini USB-C with full Thunderbolt™ 3 compatibility is a powerhouse of data transfer and storage.

The new Mercury Elite Pro mini with USB-C is engineered to keep pace with production schedules, from the studio to the office and everywhere in between. With bus-powered plug-and-play connectivity, users can ditch those adapters and grab, share and present works in progress.

“The Mercury Elite Pro family of storage solutions has been a favorite with our music, video and creative professional enthusiasts for many years, and it just keeps getting better,” said Larry O’Connor, OWC Founder & CEO. “When data is your livelihood, there’s nothing better in life than a rugged, blazing fast hard drive or SSD, and frankly there’s just about no other hard drive out there that’s better or more versatile than this one.”

Choose from either a 2.5" Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive or a Solid State Drive (SSD) design - both with a heat-dissipating, fanless design – these drives were designed for any professional application where cool, super-quiet operation and blindingly fast performance is required. The Pro mini offers eSATA and USB-C connection options, delivering up to 540MB/s transfer speeds with models offering up to 4TB storage capacity. Enclosed in sleek, impact resistant brushed aluminum, it’s lightweight and compact, so it easily goes anywhere.
