updated 01:45 am EDT, Wed August 8, 2012

Firewire 800 or USB 3.0 provide bus power, no AC adapter required

Accessory manufacturer Other World Computing announced the "triple interface" model of its OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro bus-powered portable storage solution. The new version replaces the USB 2.0 port with a USB 3.0 interface, backwards compatible to the older version of the port.

Complemented by a pair of FireWire 800 ports, USB 3.0 allows the drive to deliver speeds up to 285MB per second. A USB-only version of the drive is available. Both models offer 5400 or 7200RPM hard drives in capacities up to 1TB, or a OWC Mercury Electra SSD up to 480GB. The drive is designed to be bus-powered, but an optional AC adapter is available.

A USB 3.0, 5400RPM, 320GB version of the drive is available for $90. The triple-interface 1TB 5400RPM drive retails for $175. The 60GB SSD USB 3.0 version costs $118, up to $568 for the 480GB triple-interface SSD model.
