The 2TB Mercury Electra offers SATA 3.0 6G read speeds of 490MB/s sustained, 128/256-bit AES encryption, MLC flash, a three-year warranty and the largest capacity that OWC has on offer. While also offering read speeds of up to 471MB/s, this drive has been "designed from the ground up for heavy-duty use," says OWC founder and CEO Larry Conner.

Available before the end of January 2016, this drive will set back consumers $799.99 on release and can be bought directly from MacSales.
