OWC Offers 1TB SSD for $449

A new SDD from OWC, the 1TB Mercury Electra™ 6G SSD for only $449.

With 7% over-provisioning, far more than many brands: flash RAM fails over time.

Note that the drive is qualified for RAID. MPG will be testing four of these in the Thunderbay 4 Mini.

Though not yet listed, the Electra 6G 1TB can be used in the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Mini enclosure using bus power (about $34). OWC will probably soon offer this combination directly.
