    OWC / Other World Computing OWCME3QH7T5.0 reviews

    5TB Mercury Elite Pro External Hard Drive is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and fast setup. Easy to use I need extra storage for my late 2012 MacPro 800 firewire. I did some research and found the best option was to purchase a couple of these drives. They were delivered with the same speed and precision we have all come to expect from B&H. My guess is that about two minutes after unboxing, the drive was ready to go. Fast and easy setup. As an aside, they look pretty good as well. I put them both ON my workstation in front of one of my three monitors. The only slight drawback is that they occasional make a bit of a grating sound. Not a big deal. Recommended.
