Other World Computing 8.0TB (4x 3.5" SATA I/II Product Details

The Ultimate Blend of Professional Performance and Convenience

Four 3.5" Serial ATA (SATA I/II) hard disk drives in a brushed aluminum enclosure with Hardware RAID setting flexibility and up to 300MB/s data transfer speed for high performance data storage and redundancy.

User Selectable Hardware RAID Settings

Thanks to a front panel selector switch, the Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 enables easy configuration of the Hardware RAID settings - NRAID, 0, 1, 5, 10 - so you can select the best combination of speed, capacity, redundancy, or any combination of the three.

Re-builds without a computer connection!

RAID 1, 5, 10 enables you to keep working even if one drive fails!

NRAID (Span)

Combines capacity of two or more drives of the same size without any RAID data distribution scheme into one logical desktop volume. Will also combine the capacity of varying size drives based on the lowest capacity drive in the set.

RAID 0 (Stripe)

Data is split into blocks over two or more drives at same time for high speed and large capacity. The ideal RAID setting for demanding video production/editing.

RAID 1 (Mirror)

Data is written at same time to two drives only for highest level of data safety and redundancy.

RAID 5 (Stripe with Parity)

Data is Striped (RAID 0) while incorporating redundancy over three or more drives for the best combination of speed, capacity, and redundancy. The "Quad Interface" 4 Bay Enterprise Class Performance RAID Solutions are pre-configured as RAID 5.

RAID 10 (1+0)

Data is Striped (RAID 0) over two Mirrored sets (RAID 1) of drives for fast redundancy.

From day one, the OWC Mercury Elite Series has been designed to be everything you'd hope for and more!
