OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G 120GB SSD Review

Legit Reviews
24 May 2011
  • 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.

Expert Review

  • 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.

The OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 120GB SATA 3 SSD Review – This 120GB 6G SSD Absolutely Flies!

12 April 2011
  • Excerpt: An SSD arrived earlier today that I thought all might like to read about.  A quick change of plans to the negative of a few and here we are taking pictures and benchmarking the new OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 120GB SSD . Having just completed testing, OWC gets a big thumbs up for being only the second manufacturer to release an SSD with SandForces new SF-2000 series SATA 3 processor as well as ensuring the ‘6G’ is of the quality that we have come to appreciate.

  • Excerpt: HDTune Pro confirms what we have seen but also shows us that the access time of this drive is 0.051ms which is becoming commonplace in newer solid state drives.  In comparison to a hard drive which is roughly 9ms, the access time of the SSD in this case is some 176 times faster in disk access.

The OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 120GB SATA 3 SSD Review – Initial Testing

thessdreview.com
12 April 2011
  • Excerpt: We can always predict that testing will go well when our first tests exceed the manufacturers specifications as seen here.  ATTO is one of the most popular benchmarks programs for SSDs as it is the test method used by manufacturers to arrive at their listed specifications.  554MB/s high sequential read and 478MB/s high sequential write transfer speeds just cannot be beat from a single SSD.

OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 120Gb SSD Review

thessdreview.com
8 August 2010
  • Excerpt: The SSD Review has been utilizing two drives for the passed two months now and we have to say that we just can’t get enough of these drives!!! They are truly hidden gems of the ssd world and we are not alone in this belief. It seems that everyone that seems to be buying them or, as in our case, reviewing them, just cannot speak highly enough of the ssd or the company itself The question we have to ask ourselves then becomes that of why they aren’t as popular as the OCZ...

OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Hardware Canucks
8 March 2011
  • 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.
