Hey Big Spender! The 960GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD is Now Available

If you have $1300 laying around, and you’re looking for the highest-capacity solid state storage available, keep reading. If you don’t fit either of those descriptions, especially the monetary one, keep moving folks, nothing to see here…MacLife reports:

Other World Computing has announced the availability of the Mercury Electra MAX 3G, a whopping 960GB 2.5-inch solid-state storage drive clocked at 3.0Gb/s for high performance as well as high capacity.

“When only the fastest and most reliable Solid State Drive on the market today will suffice for your data storage and backup, look no further than the OWC 960GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD,” the company’s product page teases.

“With sustained reads up to 254MB/s and writes up to 250MB/s, up to 100X greater data protection than enterprise class Hard Disk Drives, and RAISE technology for RAID like data protection and reliability, the OWC 960GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD line delivers unbeatable performance that’s designed and built in the U.S. from domestic and imported parts and backed by a three year warranty.”

That’s not quite as fast as the read/write speeds you get from Apple’s latest flash storage on their new MacBook Pro with Retina Display, or their MacBook Air, but it’s still pretty exciting if you’re in the market for almost a terabyte of storage and no moving parts.

We mentioned at the beginning of the article that it would run you $1,300 to pick one of these babies up. It’s not quite that dear, it’s actually a mere $1,269.99, and they’re available for same-day shipping!
