The OWC Mercury Elite Pro external hard drive has been updated to offer connectivity options that are ideal for all Mac users:
- USB 3 port for high speed I/O on Macs with USB 3 (2012 MacMini, 2012 MacBook Pro, 2012 iMac).
- eSATA port for high speed I/O on Mac Pro systems without USB 3 (Mac Pro will have USB 3 at some point).
- Firewire 800/400 for backward compatibility with systems lacking either eSATA or USB 3.
- USB 3 drops down to USB 2 on older Macs with only USB 2.
