If you're looking for the highest-capacity solid-state storage to date but don't have nearly $1300 to spend on it, you may want to avert your gaze from this news post. Seriously, it will just make you want one.
Other World Computing has announced the availability of the Mercury Electra MAX 3G, a whopping 960GB 2.5-inch solid-state storage drive clocked at 3.0Gb/s for high performance as well as high capacity.
"When only the fastest and most reliable Solid State Drive on the market today will suffice for your data storage and backup, look no further than the OWC 960GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD," the company's product page teases.
"With sustained reads up to 254MB/s and writes up to 250MB/s, up to 100X greater data protection than enterprise class Hard Disk Drives, and RAISE technology for RAID like data protection and reliability, the OWC 960GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD line delivers unbeatable performance that's designed and built in the U.S. from domestic and imported parts and backed by a three year warranty."
While that's not quite as impressive as the read/write speeds clocked from Apple's latest flash storage on the new MacBook Pro with Retina Display or even MacBook Air, it's still pretty lust worthy for those looking for nearly a terabyte of notebook storage with no moving parts.
So how much will the Mercury Electra MAX 3G 960GB set you back, you ask? As the old saying goes, "if you have to ask, you can't afford it" -- but if you can, a mere $1,269.99 will make it yours, and OWC has 'em in stock for same-day shipping.
