The Mercury Elite Pro storage solution from Other World Computing features an aluminum design matching Apple's computers. The external drive can be equipped up to 4 TB of storage, or as a bare 3.5-inch drive enclosure for a DIY kit.
Recently OWC introduced a new model supporting USB 3.0. The USB 3.0 enclosure also contains dual Firewire 800 and eSATA connectors. USB 3.0 is now available on Apple's last laptops, and likely future computer. It offers greater speeds than Firewire 800 for those looking for easy and portable external storage.
The USB 3.0 product joins two other solutions, one with USB 2.0, Firewire 400, Firewire 800, and eSATA, and a less expensive model with just USB 2.0 and Firewire 400.
Pricing on the USB 3.0 model starts out at 97.99 on the enclosure and $169.99 with 500 GB drive installed.
