OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSD7P6G960 overview

  • 1Description

Designed with a Silicon Motion SM2246EN Series controller and Tier 1 MLC NAND flash, the 1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Internal SSD from OWC / Other World Computing features 1TB storage capacity, allowing you to store a variety of files including movies, photos, music, documents, and more. This SSD connects to your system's 2.5" / 7mm bay via its SATA III 6 Gb/s interface that is also compatible with SATA II 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 GB/s. Additionally, this drive may be used in 2.5" / 9.5mm drive bays using the included 7mm to 9.5mm spacer. With solid-state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional hard disk drive. Sustained read speeds of up to 500 MB/s and data write speeds of up to 450 MB/s allow you to access data stored within the drive quickly and efficiently. SSDs also contain no moving parts, which helps them to be better protected against physical damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear when compared to traditional spinning hard drives, as they have no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with.

The 1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Internal SSD supports single and multiple drive RAID configurations, including RAID 0, 1, 10, and 0+1, each of which offers redundancy, performance, or a combination of both. It also features 7% over provisioning, meaning that 7% of the drive is always allocated for data management and maintaining the drive's performance. This is further strengthened by the 64GB that are allocated to real-time data redundancy and error correction. This SSD is protected by a limited 5-year warranty.

Global Wear Leveling Algorithms
Global wear leveling algorithms automatically distribute data evenly and manage program/erase count, helping to maximizing SSD lifespan.
StaticDataRefresh technology manages free space, gradually refreshing data across the SSD over time, helping to limit data corruption
Hardware BCH ECC
Hardware BCH ECC corrects errors up to 66-bit/1kB for data retention and drive life
Advanced Security Protocols
Advanced security protocols support 128/256-bit-AES disk encryption
Includes 7mm to 9.5mm Adapter/Spacer
Attach this adapter to the top of any 2.5" / 7mm drive for installations that require a 9.5mm drive height for proper use, whether you need a 9.5mm drive height for a dock, camera, server, device, PC, or external drive. This adapter is not needed for 2.5" drive installations that use the standard side or bottom mounting positions to secure the drive in place, and is not needed for any installation of a 7mm drive in Apple Macintosh computers

    OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSD7P6G960 reviews

    1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightning fast this drive was a surprise purchase to replace my old ssd. I found it easy to install on a MacBook Pro, the installation of OS X was a breeze, and loading the drive with the migration assistant was considerably short for 500 Gb. Hopefully it'll last longer than 4 years
