The All-New Desktop Optical
Configured For Your Workflow
Now with an updated design, Mercury Pro is the premier drive to bring optical media back to your workflow. With a sleek, durable aluminum chassis, and high-speed USB 3.0 interface, Mercury Pro delivers reliable performance that matches its good looks. It's cooler, quieter, and better than ever.
Universal USB 3.0 Connectivity
The new Mercury Pro is plug-and-play compatible with both Mac and PC workflows, making it your versatile premium optical drive. With high-speed USB 3.0 connectivity, playback of optical media, data transfer, and archive all happen as fast as possible, with bandwidth to spare.
M-DISC - The Perfect Long-Term Archive Solution
The OWC Mercury Pro supports the revolutionary M-DISC format, making it the ideal solution for reliable long-term backup and archiving. Compared to other recordable storage media like DVDs and Tape, M-DISC offers superior reliability and protection against data loss that will last a thousand years (or more)!

 

M-DISCs use a proprietary layer made from inorganic, rock-like material for permanent data storage, protected from data rot and extremes of light, humidity and temperature change. Once written, the M-DISC can be read or played on any quality DVD drive that supports the common DVD+R/RW format. Shop our selection of M-DISC Optical Media.
Reliability and Support You Can Count On
Like all OWC drives, the Mercury Pro is built to the highest standards of reliability and performance. Because our goal is always 100% reliability, it's rigorously quality tested, and backed by our 1 year warranty and 
 
Please note: Apple's DVD Player application only works with an internal optical drive or the Apple's external SuperDrive. To play DVDs with this drive, we recommend the free VLC Player, which can be downloaded from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/. Faceplate design may be different from shown.
