The OWC 1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Internal SSD is a media storage that allows you to store a variety of different files within a 1TB capacity. This connects by having it on a 2.5" bay and interfacing with a SATA III interface. However, this is backwards compatible with a SATA connection.

Additionally, this drive may be used in 2.5" / 9.5mm drive bays using the included 7mm to 9.5mm spacer. With solid-state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional hard disk drive. Sustained read speeds of up to 500 MB/s and data write speeds of up to 450 MB/s allow you to access data stored within the drive quickly and efficiently. SSDs also contain no moving parts, which helps them to be better protected against physical damage. SSDs also receive less wear and tear when compared to traditional spinning hard drives, as they have no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with.

The 1TB Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Internal SSD supports single and multiple drive RAID configurations, including RAID 0, 1, 10, and 0+1, each of which offers redundancy, performance, or a combination of both. It also features 7% over provisioning, meaning that 7% of the drive is always allocated for data management and maintaining the drive's performance. This is further strengthened by the 64GB that are allocated to real-time data redundancy and error correction. This SSD is protected by a limited 5-year warranty.

Global Wear Leveling Algorithms

Global wear leveling algorithms automatically distribute data evenly and manage program/erase count, helping to maximizing SSD lifespan.


StaticDataRefresh technology manages free space, gradually refreshing data across the SSD over time, helping to limit data corruption

Hardware BCH ECC

Hardware BCH ECC corrects errors up to 66-bit/1kB for data retention and drive life

Advanced Security Protocols

Advanced security protocols support 128/256-bit-AES disk encryption

Includes 7mm to 9.5mm Adapter/Spacer

Attach this adapter to the top of any 2.5" / 7mm drive for installations that require a 9.5mm drive height for proper use, whether you need a 9.5mm drive height for a dock, camera, server, device, PC, or external drive. This adapter is not needed for 2.5" drive installations that use the standard side or bottom mounting positions to secure the drive in place, and is not needed for any installation of a 7mm drive in Apple Macintosh computers
