An Essential External Solution for Everyone

The Mercury Elite Pro began OWC’s rich, storied history of storage solution innovations nearly 20 years ago. It has lasted the test of time by continuing to offer an incomparable blend of performance, quality, and value in a single-drive storage solution. 

It’s an essential desktop external drive for creative pros, small office/home office users, and families with ever-growing storage capacity needs. Photos, music, and videos are a part of everyday digital life. Add in presentations, reports, record-keeping, and correspondence, and the result is a staggering amount of data that needs to be stored in one accessible location. 

The Mercury Elite Pro is up to the task with its rugged, solid aluminum enclosure holding a high performance 3.5-inch 7200RPM hard drive with up to 16TB capacity. It can be used for a variety of personal and business needs including:

  • Pro-level video editing projects
  • Time Machine and File History backups of important business data and irreplaceable personal photos
  • Consolidating files from multiple smaller drives to a single location for faster, more convenient access
  • Migrating data from an existing machine to a new computer
  • Expanding game storage of console gaming systems 
  • Freeing up space on a computer's internal drive to improve performance

Purposefully Designed

Offering an ideal blend of form and function, the Mercury Elite Pro’s fanless brushed aluminum chassis provides maximum heat dissipation to run quietly cool while the shock isolation design keeps the drive — and your data — safe and protected. It fits discreetly on any desktop with the included vertical orientation stand or place it horizontally with the included non-skid rubber feet and even stack multiple units to create a capacity “tower of power”.  

Ready for Play

The Mercury Elite Pro isn’t just all work and no play. Besides saving and backing up computer data or functioning as a workhorse drive on set or in the edit suite, it can be used to watch videos, listen to music, and view pictures through your gaming console or directly attached to your Smart TV.2

Gain Critically Needed Gaming Space

With their stunning realism, modern games have grown to an average of 40GB per game. That means PS4 and Xbox One’s standard 500GB internal drive will only hold 12 “regular” games. How do you play more games — including 4K games that are up to 100GB in size — without uninstalling other games? Easy … for every 1.0TB of Mercury Elite Pro capacity you add as external storage to your console, you’ll gain space to store up to an additional 24 average-sized games. Besides eliminating the limitations of your internal capacity, you’ll gain the ability to offload the games you play most regularly and potentially load and save them faster! 

Certified for Demanding Use

We understand having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to all tech users. That’s why every Mercury Elite Pro pre-configured solution undergoes a multi-step performance certification prior to shipping. This ensures it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.
