Enclosure for 3.5-inch SATA Drives: OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini USB-C

The OWC Mercury Elite Pro mini USB-C Enclosure for 2.5-inch SATA drives is now available. Buy with included SATA drive up to 4TB capacity, or get an empty enclosure and add your own hard drive or SSD.

Great solution for a SATA drive to put to use and/or for backward compatibility with older Macs with USB-A ports. And that’s the point: this is an enclosure for SATA drives, including hard drives.

But for top performance on USB-C, a dedicated SSD like the OWC Envoy Pro EX or OWC Envoy Pro Elektron will perform at full USB-C speeds (SATA drives are limited to ~500MB/sec).
