The Mercury Elite Pro Dual Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array from OWC / Other World Computingfeatures two bays that each sport a 6TB hard drive to deliver a total raw capacity of 12TB for your Thunderbolt-equipped system. The two 3.5" hard drives are preconfigured in a hardware RAID 0 array that strips the data across both drives to provide speeds of up to 474 MB/s. You can reconfigure the drives in a RAID 1, SPAN, or individual mode utilizing the hardware RAID controller. Other notable features include an aluminum enclosure and a quiet fan to cool the drives and internal components.

To keep up with the fast transfer speeds from the drives, the dual Thunderbolt 2 ports have a 20 Gbps bi-directional channel for each port. The Mercury Elite Pro also has a USB 3.0 connection for greater compatibility with a wider range of systems. Moreover, Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 cables are included so you can start storing and editing right out of the box.

Most unopened items sold by Melrose Inc. in new condition and returned within 30 days will receive a refund or exchange. The return window for items sold online begins once the order has been invoiced. Invoicing happens when any part of the order is shipped, delivered by a courier service or made ready for pick up.

Software is not returnable and not refundable. All sales are final. This is generally part of all webcarts selling software. It is buyer beware. The reason for this is once an end-user customer sees a License Code then that code is 'spoiled' because they can use it to gain access to the software.  Once a License Code is registered by a customer that product is available to that customer and therefore the code cannot be returned.
