    Other World Computing (OWC) http://www.macsales.com, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today the 'Triple Interface' model of its award-winning OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro bus-powered portable storage solution now features a USB 3.0 'SuperSpeed' port which is also USB 2.0 backwards compatible. Complemented by two FireWire 800/400 ports, the new USB 3.0 capability enables the Mercury On-The-Go Pro to deliver real-world, benchmark-proven data transfer speeds up to 285 MB/s. All that speed is housed in a pocket-sized drive offering up to 1.0TB of storage capacity—enough space to hold up to one million JPEG photos, 500 DVD movies, 76 hours of digital video, or 350,000 MP3 songs.

    Pricing, Availability
    In addition to the FireWire 800/400 and USB 3.0/2.0 'Triple Interface' model, a USB 3.0/2.0 only model is also available. Both models offer a choice of a 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM hard drive in capacities up to 1.0 TB, or an OWC Mercury Electra 6G Solid State Drive up to 480 GB capacity, and are available immediately priced from $89.99.

    Pocket-Sized and Bus Powered – Ideal for the Mobile Office
    Designed for the active "On-The-Go" computer user who needs the largest and fastest portable storage solution available on the market, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is compact at 3.5" x 5.5" x 1" in size -- small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, yet big enough to offer up to 1 TB of capacity. Stylishly engineered in a sleek, acrylic enclosure, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is bus-powered, so it doesn't require an AC adapter, which makes it ideal for presentations, multimedia, law enforcement, surveyors, and other "mobile office" uses. Additionally, notebook users with internal 5400 RPM drives will find that using the Mercury On-The-Go Pro 7200 RPM and SSD models as a start-up disk offers faster system boot-up and overall system performance.

    Works with Macs, PCs, and Digital Devices
    Featuring a variety of the latest and backward compatible FireWire and USB interfaces, the Plug-and-Play ready Mercury On-The-Go Pro can be used with current and legacy Macs and PCs for additional storage capacity, transporting large files between multiple computers and real-time A/V editing. The drive can also be used with storage capable digital cameras and camcorders with FireWire and/or USB data ports for quick, convenient backups of images and video while on the road.

    Backed by the Best Support in the Industry
    The best product warranty is one a consumer should never have to use, but should the need occur, OWC's stellar reputation for support offers peace of mind ownership. All OWC Mercury On-The-Go Pro storage solutions come fully backed by free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support and a three-year warranty which includes a 48-hour repair turnaround time with up to one year of complimentary Level 1 data recovery service.

    "USB 3.0 is fast becoming the high-performance interface standard for the majority of everyday Mac and PC computer uses," said Larry O'Connor, CEO, Other World Computing. "Adding 'SuperSpeed' capability to our flagship portable Mercury On-The-Go Pro will keep it on top as one of the best-selling portable drives on the market."
