The 12TB Mercury Elite Pro External Hard Drive from Other World Computing features a compact and shock-resistant design with a 3-year limited warranty to ensure it stays functional and keeps your data safe. Inside its enclosure is a 3.5" SATA hard drive with a rotational speed of 7200 rpm and a capacity of 12TB, so you'll have plenty of space to save your favorite music, photos and movies.

The Mercury Elite Pro contains a USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1 port (which is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1), an eSATA port, and two 9-pin FireWire 800 ports (backwards compatible with FireWire 400 using an optional adapter).

High Performance

The Mercury Elite Pro houses the Oxford 944 and Oxford 3100 USB/FireWire/eSATA chipset, which works in conjunction with the 7200rpm drive rotational speed of the installed hard drive to deliver a fast data transfer rate. The Mercury Elite Pro boasts a maximum read speed of 212 MB/s.

High Reliability

A top-notch design and the best components ensure the Mercury Elite Pro Series is built to last, backed with a 3-year limited warranty by OWC.

The compact and shock-resistant design ensures safe portability. In addition, the Mercury Elite Pro offers one USB 3.0 port (backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1), two FireWire 800 (1394B) ports and one eSATA port for easy plug-and-play on virtually any system. Even the cables are included.

Style

Designed to complement any user's system, the Mercury Elite Pro was created with the Mac Pro system in mind as a starting point. However, it's a fine storage solution for any computer.
