Small Footprint. Big Possibilities
The Mercury Elite Pro mini was introduced over a decade ago to emulate its award-winning desktop-sized Mercury Elite Pro “sibling.” It has earned a stellar reputation for offering superior portable, bus-powered storage performance. This pintsized powerhouse’s latest evolution gives creative pros, small office/home office users, students, and families the speed and universal connectivity of a USB-C 10Gb/s interface. Go ahead, connect the Mercury Elite Pro mini to a USB port on any past, present, or future Mac or PC, or iPadOS, Android, or Chrome OS device. The included USB-C cable with tethered USB-A adapter lets you plug into nearly anything, anywhere.
Cuts the Cord
Complementing the convenience of not having to worry about connection ports, the Mercury Elite Pro mini is bus-powered so you can free yourself from power adapter limitations. Cut the cord and take high-performance storage where you need it… from the desktop to a mountaintop.
Ready for Everything
Available in hard drive or lightning-fast SSD configurations, the Mercury Elite Pro mini is ready for your demanding A/V, digital photography, professional music, graphics, and general data backup needs. Its rugged, aircraft-grade fanless aluminum enclosure offers near silent operation. Use it for a variety of business and personal needs:
- Pro-level video editing projects
- Time Machine and File History backups of important business data and irreplaceable personal photos
- Consolidating files from multiple smaller drives to a single location for faster, more convenient access
- Migrating data from an existing machine to a new computer
- Expanding game storage of console gaming systems
- Freeing up space on a computer’s internal drive to improve performance
Store from Minutes to Millions
All the features and “technospeak” of an external drive don’t mean a thing if you don’t know how much of a particular file type it can hold. For every 1TB of your OWC drive capacity, you can store up to any of the following:
- 250,000 photos
- 250,000 standard quality songs
- 38,000 high quality songs
- 200 high-definition movies
- 41.6 hours of GoPro 4K footage
- 4.3 million MS Office documents
- 24+ PS4/Xbox games
Your Life’s Entertainment Center
The Mercury Elite Pro isn’t just all work and no play. Besides saving and backing up computer data or functioning as a workhorse drive on set or in the edit suite, it can be used to watch videos, listen to music, and view pictures through your gaming console or directly attached to your Smart TV.
Saves the Gaming Day
As a console gamer, you can never have enough storage space. Whether you have a previous gen PlayStation, Xbox, or the latest PS5 or Xbox Series X/S console, the Mercury Elite Pro mini lets you spend more time going for the win and less time worrying about storage limits. Maximize your new console’s internal storage for the latest titles by running backwards compatible PS4 and Xbox One games directly from the Mercury Elite Pro mini. You can also store PS5 and Xbox Series X/S games on the Mercury Elite Pro mini and transfer them faster than re-downloading to your console when you want to get your game on.
