OWC preps 1TB Mercury On-the-Go Pro drives

updated 12:50 pm EDT, Thu October 1, 2009

Three interface options

Other World Computing has announced a new 1TB capacity for its Mercury On-the-Go Pro external hard drives. All of the 1TB models rely on 2.5-inch storage, and use 8MB caches. Speed options are limited to 5200rpm, as compared to some other Pros, which can reach 7200rpm or SSD levels.

The 1TB range is divided by its interface options. A $360 model supports USB and FireWire 400/800 connections, whereas a $330 "combo" drive handles only USB and FireWire 400. A $300 price pays for a unit supporting just USB. All interfaces can be used to power a drive, though ports are provided for optional AC adapters.

The new Pros can currently be pre-ordered from OWC's website, though they will ship on October 15th.
