The Mercury Elite Pro Dual 2-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Enclosure from OWC / Other World Computing features two bays and two Thunderbolt 2 ports so you can create a direct-attached storage solution for Windows and Mac systems. The two bays are capable of holding 2.5"/3.5" SATA-based hard drives as well as SSDs. Once optional drives are installed, you can configure your drives in a RAID 0 array, which stripes the data across both drives, to provide speeds of up to 474 MB/s. You can also set the drives in a RAID 1, SPAN, or individual mode utilizing the hardware RAID controller. Other notable features include an aluminum enclosure and a quiet fan to cool the drives and internal components.

To keep up with the fast transfer speeds from the drives, the dual Thunderbolt 2 ports have a 20 Gbps bi-directional channel for each port. The Mercury Elite Pro also has a USB 3.0 connection for greater compatibility with a wider range of systems. Moreover, Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 cables are included so you can start storing and editing right out of the box.

Dual Drive Hardware RAID
The Mercury Elite Pro Dual with Thunderbolt 2 technology is a suitable RAID solution for creative workflows, project archives, and system backups. You can easily configure the user-supplied drives in a RAID 0, 1, span, or independent mode.
Thunderbolt 2 technology supports the full potential of two 3.5" hard drives in RAID 0, which offers a maximum sustained throughput speed of up to 474 MB/s. You can also reconfigure the Mercury Elite Pro Dual in a RAID 1 mode to enjoy instant mirroring of your data.
Ready for You Right Out of the Box
The Mercury Elite Pro Dual comes with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, one USB 3.0 port, and all of the cables you need for use with almost any system. Ready to perform in RAID 0, it's also easily configured in RAID 1, span, and independent modes to match your workflow needs.
Thunderbolt 2
With dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, the Mercury Elite Pro Dual supports Thunderbolt daisy-chains that enable you to expand your workstation's capabilities with up to five additional Thunderbolt devices, including high-speed storage, expansion chassis for specialist workflows, and even a high-definition display.
The Mercury Elite Pro Dual features a heat-dissipating, brushed-aluminum design with a whisper-quiet, variable-speed fan. In addition, smart power conserves energy and extends the life of the drives inside. The Elite Pro Dual automatically spins down during periods of inactivity, and powers on and off with your workstation.

    Mercury Elite Pro Dual 2-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Enclosure is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dead on arrival Waiting on a return authorization from OWC after chatting with their customer service. Frustrated but hopefully a one off. This is my second one and the other work has worked just fine for a couple of years.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from noisy but functional The enclosure functions fine, but has no sound management. Every noise made by the drive(s) inside is transmitted to the surrounding environment. There's not enough vibration dampening either, so if you place the enclosure on a desk surface, you'll feel every seek operation. There are bright LEDs on the front and rear that aren't very useful and are quite annoying at night in a darkened room.
