Specifications, Pricing and Availability
In our first review of the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G we snickered a bit about OWCs very conservative sustained read and write performance quotes. On the day our article went live OWC changed their estimates and the revised spec list now reflects the same performance we observed in our article. The new revised spec list shows the Mercury Extreme Pro 6G achieving 559MB/s read and 527MB/s write when using SATA 6G. At this time IOPS is quoted as 60K IOPS at random 4KB.
OWC is in the process of rolling out three capacity points for the new Pro 6G SF-2281 models with 7% over provisioning. Those are 120GB, 240GB and a large 480GB capacity size. Each size will have a little different real world performance, but for the most part all drives are pretty equal in these three capacity sizes.
When it comes to pricing and availability, I've ripped an image from OWC's website from the time of writing. The 120GB drive is already available and shipping. The image shows the 240GB as being in a pre-order status, but by the time you read this, they will be shipping as well. The 480GB model will be ready just shortly after.
When it comes to add ons and accessories, OWC has a 3 year warranty with their Mercury Extreme Pro 6G, but the drive does not come with a desktop adapter bracket. OWC does list a few aftermarket brackets for both PC and MAC users on their website, macsales.com.
