OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual Thunderbolt + USB 3.0

Seagate ST2000DX001 3.5 inch 2TB Hybrid Internal Solid State Drive

About this drive i have 2 SEAGATE Hybrid DRIVES installed into this OWC unit
now in order to shut the OWC down first deject it from Mavericks
then put your system to sleep the drive will power down altogether
i tried this on Yosemite beta 7 and it did not work
i fine it no more noisy than my USB 3 icy box 2 drive system in fact the icy was a bit more noicy
but had less trouble turning it off

the QWC i got it up to read 290 and 320 wright Combined RAID 0 2 Drives as one
one drive was around 80 & 90 2 drives on RAID 1 was 170 180
not bad for a 200 quid unit and 2 drives at around 87 quid each
total of 4TB i could not find any 3,4,5,6 etc TB Drives on Hybrid SSD

hope this info helps

Not Ready for Prime Time 27 July 2014
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com
We bought this unit to use with our new Mac Pro and a software called Capture One. The short answer is that we tested two of these units with WD, Seagate and Toshiba hard drives and found that the unit disconnected randomly. It is not nearly as good as the previous generation, they redesigned it.

After talking to tech support, I learned that it has certain problems with hard drive firm ware. Variable power units such as WD environmental drives, carvers and maybe WD Red cause problems that OWC knows about. We tested with the Seagate 7200 Barracuda (500gb and 3tb), WD 10K raptor drives and Toshiba 7200 drives and found the unit to crash the computer 20 times a day. Automatic restarts and death screens.

The hard drives that come with the unit are Toshiba and while they sound good on paper. There performance is half of a seagate or wd drive.

Save your money, we just bought the Lacie 2big Thunderbolt 2 (New version just released 2014) and are very happy. We are getting slightly slower speeds than our 10k rpm hard drives but very happy.

You get what you pay for...I spent three weeks trying to get this to work. Time I will never get back.

Loud 26 Mar. 2014
By Don Pattee - Published on Amazon.com
This thing is loud.

My new Mac Pro makes no noise when I'm just using it casually, and not too much noise when I'm doing something 'serious' on it. But this drive's fan runs constantly and loudly.
Now I have to go waste time finding a quiet replacement fan for it. This is unusable in a home office environment. Maybe in a 'work office' environment where there are a bunch of computers, people talking, etc it would be fine.

Update: I removed the original fan and looked up its specs - it was a 25 db fan. I replaced it with a 14db fan Scythe Mini KAZE 40mm Silent Case Fan (SY124010L), and I purchased large rubber 'feet' so I could place the case on its side on my desk. This helped drop the noise down notably, but it is still too loud. The fan runs at full blast constantly, there appears to be no actual thermal management taking place.

If you want reliability, do not buy OWC 7 Jun. 2014
By A. Hein - Published on Amazon.com
I currenlty own three OWC Mercury Elite Pro enclosures. One failed within the first year, OWC replaced it. Now a year later the brand new replacement has failed and OWC says tough luck.

The second OWC Mercury Elite Pro enclosure I bought also failed a little over the 1 year warranty mark and after heavy pushing they agreed to replace it.

The third and newest OWC Guardian Plus that I bought failed within the first six months. OWC was willing to replace it because it was in the first year of ownership.

Having owned three enclosures that seem to fail right at the 1 year mark I do not consider OWC cases reliable and would not recommend them. That is unless you need a door stop.

I'm on my fourth enclosure in less than three months ... 3 Sept. 2014
By Brian M. Hirschy - Published on Amazon.com

I'm on my fourth enclosure in less than three months since they keep dying... and then replacing them.

One enclosure was DOA. The next enclosure stopped connecting after 2 months.

This is a connectivity issue associated with the controllers on these enclosures where if you do any kind of daisy chaining that it won't connect. On one drive it wouldn't connect no matter what I used. USB3, Thunderbolt - it didn't matter. Just wouldn't connect to any of four computers I tried it on.

The drives are all safe, but it's been quite a headache having to send back multiple enclosures for what seems to be a controller issue.

After close to a decade of using OWC, I can safely say I'm done. The quality of the most recent drives I've own from them seem to have slipped. I can't afford to replace an enclosure every month.

I'd strongly advice you to avoid this enclosure if you value your time and sanity.

Terrible reliability. 21 July 2014
By -TMcN- - Published on Amazon.com
I'm on my second OWC Mercury Elite Pro. The first one died when it tipped over. It was in RAID-1 mode, but the way it died, it couldn't recover anything. The second one has been babied. Which doesn't make it much better.

In any long set of copies, it will suddenly stop being responsive to the PC. It doesn't drop the USB connection - the PC knows it's still connected - but it doesn't respond to file i/o requests. Unplug/replug the USB and it resumes.

This isn't an issue with any other external USB3 devices I've used.
