The Mercury On-The-Go Pro 60GB 2.5" Solid State Drive from Other World Computing is a portable Solid State Drive with a variety of connection options, including FireWire 800/400 and USB 3.0. This solid state drive is compatible with both Mac and PC machines and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, making it both compact and versatile. The drive features a fanless design for near silent operation and utilizes the current DuraClass technology with a SandForce processor to deliver high transfer speeds, endurance, performance and power efficiency.

The Solid State Drive features RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology along with ECC protection to protect data on your drive. An intelligent block management and wear leveling system evenly distributes the data over the drive. Furthermore, an intelligent read disturb management spreads the active read/write across the flash components, eliminating data corruption. Advanced intelligent recycling ensures space management by rewriting data over the Solid State Drive.

A variety of included cables enable you to begin using your Solid State Drive right out of the box. The included USB cable enables you to connect to systems with either a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port. Although the drive comes preformatted for Mac OS X systems, it can easily be reformatted for a Windows system. Once connected, the OWC Solid State Drive contains both backup and utility software, allowing you to easily create complete system backups.
