Boost your storage capacity with the 56TB Mercury Elite Pro Quad 4-Drive HDD Storage Solution from OWC. Capable of data transfer rates up to 947 MB/s, the four-bay Mercury Elite Pro Quad comes with four 3.5" 7200 rpm enterprise drives and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C interface.

This RAID-ready version of the Mercury Elite Pro Quad can be configured for RAID 0 or 1 using the included SoftRAID XT Lite application for macOS, while Windows users can set up the drives for RAID using Windows Storage Spaces or a different RAID software utility.

Designed for quiet and cool operation, the fan-cooled Mercury Elite Pro Quad features a lockable bay door, a Kensington lock slot, and an aluminum enclosure.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C Interface

The Mercury Elite Pro Quad's USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C interface delivers up to 10 Gb/s bandwidth and works with most Mac or Windows PCs with USB Type-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports. If your computer doesn't feature USB Type-C connectivity, the included USB Type-C to USB type-A cable allows for backward compatibility for machines with legacy USB ports.

Software RAID

The Mercury Elite Pro Quad features advanced software RAID capabilities, letting you choose the best option for your workflow. Whether you need maximum performance up to 947 MB/s or redundancy to keep your data secure, OWC's SoftRAID XT Lite application for macOS is included for RAID 0 and 1. The RAID-ready model also works with Windows Storage Spaces, or you can install the RAID software of your choice.

Design

Built with a heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure, a whisper-quiet fan, and vibration-absorbing feet, the Mercury Elite Pro Quad is designed to run cool and quietly, making it ideal for noise-sensitive environments. Front-facing LEDs provide an instant drive-activity snapshot, while the front panel access lock keeps your drives safe. You can even secure the entire drive with the rear-mounted Kensington compatible lock slot. OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure helps to ensure that your drive arrives operating properly and ready to perform.

does this work with ps4?
Asked by: Ben A.
The OWC / Other World Computing Mercury Elite Pro Quad 40TB 4-Bay USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C RAID Array (4 x 10TB) BH #OWMEQCTSRT40 would not work with a PS4, this is a software RAID box. The PS4 does support RAID drives but they must be hardware raid.
