That's space to hold up to 1.5 million JPEG photos, 750 DVD movies, 115 hours of digital video, or 526,000 MP3 songs in your back pocket.
The new 1.5TB model is available
in two interface configurations:
- USB 3.0 and FireWire 800/400 $199.99

With its USB 3.0 interface, a Mercury On-The-Go Pro equipped with an Mercury Electra 6G SSD up to 480GB capacity can deliver benchmark-proven transfer speeds up to 285MB/s.
Pocket-Sized and Bus Powered for Mobile Office
Designed for the active On-The-Go computer user who needs high capacity and fast portable storage solution, it measures 3.5" x 5.5" x 1". In a shock-resistant acrylic enclosure, the Mercury On-The-Go Pro is bus-powered, so it doesn't require an AC adapter, which makes it for presentations, multimedia, law enforcement, surveyors, and other mobile office uses. Additionally, notebook users with internal 5400RPM drives will find that using the Mercury On-The-Go Pro 7200RPM and SSD models as a startup disk offers faster system boot-up and system performance.
Works with Macs, PCs, and Digital Devices
Featuring the backward compatible FireWire and USB interfaces, the Plug-and-Play ready Mercury On-The-Go Pro can be used with current and legacy Macs and PCs for additional storage capacity, transporting large files between multiple computers and real-time A/V editing. The drive can also be used with storage capable digital cameras and camcorders with FireWire and/or USB data ports for backups of images and video while on the road.
The best product warranty is one a consumer should never have to use, but should the need occur, OWC's reputation for support offers peace of mind ownership. All Mercury On-The-Go Pro storage solutions come backed by free lifetime US-based 24/7 technical support and a three-year warranty which includes a 48-hour repair turnaround time with up to one year of complimentary Level 1 data recovery service.
