More Info

The OWC / Other World Computing 480GB Mercury EXTREME PRO 6G SSD is a 2.5" Serial-ATA 9.5mm SSD that is equipped with a SandForce 2282 Processor and DuraClass technology and offers sustained reads up to 559 MB/s and writes up to 527 MB/s.

In addition to RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology, the Solid State Drive comes with ECC protection that protects the data on your hard drive and retains it for a long time on the hard drive. The Mercury EXTREME Solid State Drive features intelligent block management, while the wear leveling system evenly distributes the data over the hard drive. An intelligent read disturb management spreads active read/write, eliminating data corruption.

Advanced intelligent recycling ensures space management by re-writing the data over the SSD, and Durawrite extends the quality of the hard drive. Compatible with Notebooks and Desktops, the Mercury Solid State Drive has no moving parts and a highly rugged storage solution offers faster system response. It supports 480 GB useable capacity with a total flash memory of 512 GB, additionally 32 GB space is allocated for real time data redundancy and error correction.
