OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 240GB Solid State Drive Review
21 February 2012
Summary: Final Thoughts
For being our first product from OWC we were very impressed. In ATTO Disk Benchmark the drive scored 559MB/s read and 518MB/s write, which is very close to its advertised speeds and puts it as the second fastest drive that we have tested behind the Kingston HyperX drive. It did beat out the HyperX drive in many of our other tests.
This is a SandForce-based drive so you do get the added features that the SandForce SF-2200 controller offers.
Pros: – One of the fastest drives we have tested, – Sleek blue design, – Assembled in the USA, – 5 year warranty
Excerpt: Other World Computing, the small company capable of big surprises and market leading innovations is back at it again. We've already reviewed the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 240GB solid state drive back in May 2010, but since then a revision was made to the PCB and now a new, more extensive revision has emerged. The new OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G has enough changes to warrant a new product name and price increase, but that isn't happening.
Excerpt: Any fears we had that the OCZ Vertex 3’s speeds were due solely to some voodoo magic or secret deal with SandForce were unfounded. OWC’s Mercury Extreme Pro 6G—a product name that contains three too many buzzwords—goes toe to toe with the Vertex 3 in nearly every benchmark, and exceeds it in some. Like the Vertex 3, the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G (and why not tack on “Enhanced Premium Plus” while you’re at it, OWC?
Excerpt: After our recent review of the 120GB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G , I think you are familiar with Other World Computing. The OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G didn't put the company on the map, but it did verify that OWC belongs in the same legend as OCZ, G.Skill, Patriot and the rest of the Team SandForce landmarks.
Recensione: OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 240GB, ancora oltre

Excerpt: Solo due giorni fa vi raccontavo dei problemi incontrati con il disco OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 240GB ed oggi vi dico che sono completamente risolti. Faccio un velocissimo riassunto. Montato il disco, il primo avvio del Mac mi generava sempre un Kernel Panic (mentre il successivo filava via liscio come l'olio). Non c'erano per la verità altri problemi evidenti, ma il sistema in tali condizioni era potenzialmente instabile.
