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 a bracket to adapt the mount to fit.

This is the 500GB version of the Mercury Electra 3G, with 3.5" enclosure adaptor.

OWC part code: OWCS3D7E3G500.

If you don't want to fit this device yourself, we can fit it for you. Simply add the relevant fitting service to your cart.

If you want instructions on how to do this yourself, see our drive cloning guide. For more details on our fitting services, please see our installation service page.

If you prefer to fit the drive yourself, please be aware you may need some tools. Most desktop Macs use Phillips or flathead screws to secure the case. Please see our standard screwdriver set.
