OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini
The universally USB compatible bus-powered drive for saving, accessing and backing up.
Small Footprint. Big Possibilities
The Mercury Elite Pro mini was introduced over a decade ago to emulate its award-winning desktop-sized Mercury Elite Pro “sibling”. It has earned a stellar reputation for offering superior portable, bus-powered storage performance. This pint-sized powerhouse’s latest evolution gives creative pros, small office/home office users, students, and families the speed and universal connectivity of a USB-C 10Gb/s interface. Go ahead, connect the Mercury Elite Pro mini to a USB port on any past, present, or future Mac or PC, or iPadOS, Android, or Chrome OS device. The included USB-C cable with tethered USB-A adapter lets you plug into nearly anything, anywhere.
Cuts the Cord
Complementing the convenience of not having to worry about connection ports, the Mercury Elite Pro mini is bus-powered so you can free yourself from power adapter limitations. Cut the cord and take high-performance storage where you need it... from the desktop to a mountaintop.
Ready for Everything
The Mercury Elite Pro mini is ready for your demanding A/V, digital photography, professional music, graphics, and general data backup needs. Its rugged, aircraft-grade fanless aluminium enclosure offers near silent operation. Use it for a variety of business and personal needs…
- Pro-level video editing projects.
- Time Machine and File History backups of important business data and irreplaceable personal photos.
- Consolidating files from multiple smaller drives to a single location for faster, more convenient access.
- Migrating data from an existing machine to a new computer.
- Expanding game storage of console gaming systems.
- Freeing up space on a computer's internal drive to improve performance.
Store from Minutes to Millions
All the features and “technospeak” of an external drive don’t mean a thing if you don’t know how much of a particular file type it can hold. For every 1TB of your OWC drive capacity, you can store up to any of the following…
- 250,000 photos
- 250,000 standard quality songs
- 38,000 high quality songs
- 200 high-definition movies
- 41.6 hours of GoPro 4K footage
- 4.3 million MS Office documents
- 24+ PS4/Xbox games
Certified for Demanding Use
OWC understand that having confidence in gear reliability is paramount to creative professionals. That’s why the Mercury Elite Pro mini goes through a multi-step performance certification prior to shipping. This ensures it arrives operating properly and immediately ready for demanding use.
