OWC Introduces miniStack — High-Performance External Hard Drive That Stacks Perfectly With Mac mini

Offered with 7200RPM hard drives up to 6.0 TB, or as a build-your-own solution featuring fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity, and ultra-quiet MagLev cooling fan.

Woodstock, IL – October 26, 2016 - OWC®, a leading zero-emissions Mac and PC technology company, today introduced the OWC miniStack, a powerful external hard drive with USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity designed to stack perfectly with Mac mini. The new OWC miniStack offers exceptional performance, with transfer speeds up to 208MB/s, capacities up to 6.0TB, and an ultra-quiet MagLev cooling fan—all in a low-profile aluminum enclosure with a glossy black top designed to complement the look and feel of Mac computers. For virtually any Mac user, but especially those with a Mac mini desktop, home media library, or server, the OWC miniStack is an ideal solution to expand their computer’s storage for documents, movies, photos, music, and to perform Time Machine backups.

“The OWC miniStack is an exciting new addition to our external storage lineup. Its footprint is identical to 2010 and later Mac mini, so it’s a perfect external drive and Time Machine backup for our customers who use a Mac mini as a home computer, or with their home entertainment system,” said Jen Soulé, President of OWC. “We designed the miniStack to be our most convenient, stackable external storage solution—and we think our customers who use a Mac at home are going to love its compact and stylish design.”

Perfectly stackable, space-saving storage

OWC miniStack is designed to easily stack together with Mac mini computers and other miniStack drives, so users can increase external storage without taking additional space on their desktop. Because it features fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 connectivity, miniStack is a perfect solution to store and stream a personal collection of HD videos, music, and photos. Users who use a Mac mini as a server for their home entertainment system will enjoy miniStack as a natural extension of their media libraries. And for photographers managing large volumes of RAW images, or music producers who use a Mac for their workstation, miniStack accelerates pro-audio and photo workflows with powerful 7200RPM hard drives.

The durable aluminum enclosure, dedicated power switch, and integrated cooling fan make the miniStack a professional-grade solution that fits perfectly alongside virtually any Mac or PC at home.
