The 4TB Mercury Elite Pro External Hard Drive from Other World Computing features a compact and shock-resistant design with a 3-year limited warranty to ensure it stays functional and keeps your data safe. Inside its enclosure is a 3.5" SATA hard drive with a rotational speed of 7200rpm and a capacity of 4TB, so you'll have plenty of space to save your favorite music, photos and movies.
The Mercury Elite Pro contains a USB 3.0 port (which is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1), an eSATA port and two 9-pin FireWire 800 ports (backwards compatible with FireWire 400, a separately sold adapter is required). The drive also comes out of the box pre-formatted for a Mac computer, but it can easily be re-formatted to work with a PC as well.
The Mercury Elite Pro houses the Oxford 944 and Oxford 3100 USB/FireWire/eSATA chipset, which works in conjunction with the 7200rpm drive rotational speed of the installed hard drive to deliver a fast data transfer rate. In fact, the Mercury Elite Pro can reach a maximum data transfer rate of up to 300MB/s (using the USB 3.0 port)
