Other World Computing (OWC), creator of the Mercury Extreme 6G, has just announced a new addition to its lineup of prosumer SSDs (solid state drives) – the Mercury Electra 6G SSD. Designed and built in the USA, these SATA Revision 3.0 6Gb/s SSDs feature Tier 1/Grade A NAND and deliver 556MB/s read and 523MB/s write sustained data rates. That’s over 7x faster performance than standard factory hard drives found in most computers.
But as usual: high performance means premium prices, and the Mercury Electra 6G SSDs isn’t what you’d look for if you were building a computer on a budget. But if you’re looking for high-speed computing at home or in the office, for gaming or for work – you can’t go wrong. These drives also come with premium features like no decrease in performance in the long run, SandForce DuraClass technology to provide up to 100x higher data protection, and 30-day money back guarantee for a risk-free trial. The SSDs are priced at $229.99 (120GB), $479.99 (240GB), and $929.99 (480GB). Find out more.
