OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSD Released

Other World Computing has announced a new consumer/prosumer targeted SandForce Driven SATA Revision 3.0 6Gb/s Solid State Drive, reports CDR Labs. The OWC Mercury Electra 6G SSD utilizes the highest quality components available like Tier 1/Grade A NAND, the OWC Mercury Electra delivers 556MB/s read and 523MB/s write sustained data rates for  faster performance than a standard factory hard drive.


“Ordinary SSDs offer fast read/write performance during first initial uses, but can then experience significant write speed degradation over repeated, long-term usage. Independent simulation tests by leading drive performance experts confirm OWC Mercury SSDs’ ultra-efficient block management, wear leveling technologies, and real-time data redundancies enable incredibly high performance and extreme reliability, both of which are maintained over long-term intensive use.”
