On-the-Go portable drives reach 750GB

OWC has launched new 750GB notebook drive products. The new capacity drives arrive in bus-powered On-The-Go Pro models, with three connectivity options. The top-of-the-line triple interface offers FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0 connections, while a dual-interface FireWire 400/USB 2.0 and a USB 2.0-only version are available for reduced pricing.

The 750GB SATA-based drives spin at 5200-RPM and deliver up to 100MB-per second. The cases are fanless, run off of Bus power or an optional AC adapter. The FireWire models use Oxford chipsets, while the USB 2.0-only model sports a JMicron bridge chipset.

The cases come with ll necessary cables, a carrying case and a disk utility software bundle including Carbon Copy Cloner, ProSoft Engineering Data Backup 3, NovaStor NovaBACKUP, and Intech SpeedTools Utilities. The drives are Snow Leopard compatible, work with PCs and are suitable for Audio/Video applications.

The OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro 750GB 5200RPM triple interface FireWire 800/400 & USB 2.0 model retails for $270, while the FireWire 400/USB 2.0 model is $250 and the USB 2.0-only model sells for $230. All three models carry a three year warranty.

    I've had a few OCZ products. So far, they have spent more time being RMA'd and "we're going to ship it out just as soon as we restock them, really we are" than actually in my machine.

    I'm just so unimpressed with their customer service at this point, I think I'm done buying stuff from them.

    Never had to RMA to them, but the fact that they're taking the stuff back and replacing them certainly seems like good customer service, not bad. Seems more like you're unimpressed with the product quality.

    OCZ is a completely different and unrelated company to OWC. Our product is not built using any components supplied by OCZ.
