About Other World Computing Mercury Electra

The OWC/Other World Computing 240GB Mercury Electra Internal Solid State Drive is a 2.5" Serial-ATA 9.5mm that is equipped with a SandForce 2281 Processor and DuraClass technology and offers sustained reads up to 556 MB/s and writes up to 523 MB/s.

In addition to RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology, the Solid State Drive comes with ECC protection that protects the data on your hard drive and retains it for a long time on the hard drive. The Mercury Electra Solid State Drive features intelligent block management, while the wear leveling system evenly distributes the data over the hard drive. An intelligent read disturb management spreads active read/write, eliminating data corruption.

Advanced intelligent recycling ensures space management by re-writing the data over the SSD and Durawrite extends the quality of the hard drive. Compatible with Mac and Windows, the Mercury Solid State Drive has no moving parts and a highly rugged storage solution offers faster system response. It supports 240 GB useable capacity with a total flash memory of 256GB, additionally 16 GB space is allocated for real time data redundancy and error correction.

Other World Computing Mercury Electra Features

  • DuraWrite extends the endurance of your Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD
  • Intelligent Read Disturb Management spreads the active read/write across the flash components eliminating data corruption caused by constant use
  • Intelligent "Recycling" for advanced free space management gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted
  • RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup
  • Best-in-Class ECC Protection for longest data retention and drive life
  • This internal 2.5" SATA SSD uses the latest SandForce 2281 Processor and DuraClass technology to deliver the highest transfer speed, endurance and performance available today
  • High Performance Internal Storage: Replace your conventional hard drive with a reliable solid state drive. Unlike traditional hard disk drives, OWC SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers near instantaneous system response
