Summary: The OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G is exactly what we would expect from a SandForce SF-2200 drive – fast and reliable. However, there’s stiff competition from both OCZ and Intel with others emerging as the year progresses so tweaks in their firmware may help differentiate them in the long run.
Excerpt: In 2010 we were introduced to Other World Computing ( http://www.macsales.com ), a reseller specializing in Macintosh products. At the time OWC was moving beyond that of a simple retail / e-tail outlet and venturing into manufacturing their own solid state product line. Over the last few years we've seen many companies manufacture their own SSDs; some have been established in the SSD market and others have been a one product wonder.

Conclusion: Please note that this conclusion has been modified on launch date after it became apparent that the actual retail price of the Mercury was indeed much lower than our research had shown. We apologize for any confusion. Admittedly, we and the market in general have come to expect a lot of modern solid state drives.
