The 240GB Mercury Accelsior PCI Express Solid State Drive Card from Other World Computing is the world's first bootable PCI Express solid state drive card for both Mac and Windows. This high-performance SSD is bootable on PCs and is the only Mac-bootable, Mac-supported PCIe SSD available at the moment. You will actually be able to boot from the Mercury Accelsior without having to install any drivers because it's a true Plug and Play solution. With its custom SandForce Driven Accelsior SSD blades, the Mercury Accelsior card enables Mac and PC users to enjoy a more responsive and productive computing experience along with cooler, quieter and more energy efficient operation, especially when compared to traditional mechanical hard disk drives.

The Mercury Helios Thunderbolt PCI Express Expansion Chassis from Other World Computing is fast and flexible with up to 10 Gbps throughput. It's an ideal solution for high-performance PCIe cards made for video capture, video editing, media transcoding, audio processing and data storage. It is bootable with AHCI compliant cards and can daisy-chain up to six devices. Mercury Helios can use any half-length PCIe2.0 card (up to 6.5" (16.51 cm)) to provide a massive boost to your workflow. Thunderbolt equipped computers like the Mac mini, iMac, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, now have the ability to tap into a wide variety of professional level performance PCIe cards.
