USB 3.1 Gen 1

USB 3.1 Gen 1 features a maximum throughput of 5 Gb/s and is synonymous with USB 3.2 Gen 1 and USB 3.0.

Your Multitool for Digital Workflows

With dual drive bays, and seven connectivity ports including an SD card reader, the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dock is a do-it-all tool for organizing your digital life. You'll have plenty of room to duplicate footage, create and manage archives, or render and process effects. Connect your favorite peripherals via USB ports.

Hardware RAID Control for Speed, Reliability, and Flexibility

The Mercury Elite Pro Dock utilizes hardware RAID to unleash the full potential of two 3.5" 7200RPM hard drives. Preconfigured in high-speed RAID 0 mode to deliver maximum sustained throughput from its drives, this RAID array offers real-world speeds up to 497MB/s to handle HD video workflows. If you desire the extra security of mirrored data, you can configure the Mercury Elite Pro Dock in RAID 1 mode. Need more drive flexibility? Set up a span to combine the capacity of the two drives into one huge volume or use the drives as independent volumes.

Configure to Your Unique Needs

You can customize the Mercury Elite Pro Dock to quickly adapt to project changes and help you stay ahead of deadlines. With built-in hardware RAID, you have four drive set-up choices: non-RAID to keep the drives as independent volumes, RAID 1 (mirror) for backup reliability, RAID 0 (stripe) for optimal performance and maximum speed, or Span to combine the drive capacities into one huge volume for extra-large storage capacities. Done with the drives but need the connectivity? Just eject the RAID from your computer and the Mercury Elite Pro Dock keeps you working smoothly.

Full Stream Ahead

The Mercury Elite Pro Dock features a Gigabit Ethernet port to keep you connected at speeds that leave Wi-Fi in the dust. A must-have for shared workflows and workspaces, Ethernet connectivity speeds up file transfers giving you an edge on your work in progress.

Ready to Work

Mercury Elite Pro Dock undergoes OWC's multi-hour drive "burn-in" performance certification procedure prior to shipping. This ensures it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.

Disconnect in One Click

OWC Dock Ejector software safely disconnects drives in a single click. Designed by OWC hardware and software engineers, Dock Ejector ensures all data is written before disconnection, saving time and protecting against data loss. Use it to move quickly between workstations and get the most out of your OWC Dock.
