OWC intros Mercury On-The-Go Pro portable SSDs

updated 02:35 pm EDT, Thu September 10, 2009

OWC portable SSDs available in up to 256GB

OWC on Thursday introduced its first SSDs as part of its Mercury On-The-Go Pro portable lineup, touting them as the lowest cost portable FireWire 800/400 or USB 2.0 powered devices of their kind. Starting off with the 64GB version, a 128GB unit and the largest 256GB SSD, each can transfer data at up to 100MBps. Each 2.5-inch drive offers a 64MB data cache. As with most SSDs, the lack of moving parts makes them more shock resistant, power efficient and quieter than rotating hard drives, as well as being more tolerant to temperature extremes.

Each drive ships with a handful of utilities oriented includes Carbon Copy Cloner, ProSoft Engineering, Data Backup 3, NovaStor NovaBACKUP and Intech SpeedTools Utilities. These should be available today; the 64GB Mercury On-The-Go Pro SSD costs $280, the 128GB model $450 and the 256GB version $730.
