OWC Mercury Accelsior PCI Express SSD
If the success of the MacBook Air is any indication, there’s little doubt Apple intends to switch over to SSDs as quickly as it can. Solid state drives are incredibly fast and more reliable than spinning hard drives, although they still ring up at a higher price per gigabyte. OWC has been at the forefront of bringing these drives to Macs that don’t already have them, and is now expanding its lineup with Mercury Accelsior PCI Express SSD ($360-$2,096) for the Mac Pro.
Ranging in capacity from 120GB all the way up to 960GB, these drives offer super fast speeds of up to 780MB/s read and 648MB/s write. They’re also incredibly easy to install with a plug and play setup; no need to worry about drivers or anything like that. Chances are if you’re using a Mac Pro, you’re running some heavily duty applications—and while the Mercury Accelsior may not be cheap, it’ll bring much appreciated speed to your workflow.
