OWC Quad External HDD Overview

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 version of the Mercury Elite Pro Quad comes with SoftRAID XT for macOS, which supports RAID modes 0, 1, 4, 5, and 0+1. The array has been pre-configured for RAID 5. Windows users can set up the drives for RAID using Windows Drive Spaces or a different RAID software application.

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

Speed, Storage, and Security with SoftRAID

Pre-configured for RAID 5, the Mercury Elite Pro Quad features advanced RAID capabilities, letting you choose the best option for your workflow. Whether you want massive capacity through a single large array, need maximum performance up to 947 MB/s, or redundancy to keep your data secure, the Mercury Elite Pro Quad gives you the option of OWC's proprietary SoftRAID engine or Windows-supported RAID modes.

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 helps to keep your drives safe. You can also 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.
