OWC Mercury 250GB Electra 3G with 2.5 to 3.5 adaptor SATA 300 SSD
Stock Status: Available.

Condition: Brand New

The OWC Mercury Electra 3G from Other World Computing is a 2.5in SATA 300 7mm height Solid State Disk, aimed at consumers with older Macintosh computers which have SATA 150 or SATA 300 drive controllers - it is fully compatible with more modern machines with faster SATA controllers, although on them a SATA 600 device will be faster. Benchmarks, and a video showing the improvement in boot time over a standard hard drive, can be found here.

This SSD is in a 2.5in SATA form factor. To allow you to mount this into a desktop Mac, which takes a 3.5in SATA hard drive, we include an Startech 2.5in to 3.5in enclosure adapter (this is what is shown in the product image). This is an enclosure and converter for the 2.5in unit, which presents the ports in the correct place for easy installation into a 3.5in bay in a desktop Mac. In most iMacs this will replace the main system drive, in a Mac Pro or PowerMac G5 it can be used as an additional drive - allowing for example a small SSD to be used for the OS, and a large standard drive for data.

This is the 250GB version of the Mercury Electra 3G, with 3.5" enclosure adaptor.

OWC part code: OWCS3D7E3G250.
