New vs Seasoned OWC Mercury Pro RE 200GB

Last updated 2010-04-26 - Send Feedback

See review and specifications.

The OWC Mercury Pro RE has 28% over-provisioning, which means that 28% of its memory is set aside for error correction, bad blocks, and performance enhancements. It is an enterprise-grade unit with a rated MTBF of 10 million hours, about 8 times longer than the best hard drives! Unlike some SSDs, it has no memory buffer, which is a very good thing should the power fail: no data loss.

As of April 2010, the OWC Mercury Extreme is the only SSD that I now feel confident recommending.

Performance brand-new and after seasoning

The OWC Mercury Pro RE graph below looks like only one write/read test was done because the results are all but identical when new and when seasoned.

In the graph below, reads are green and writes are red. This is a flawless performance! Click for a larger graph.
