External Solid State Drive (SSD) for reliability when traveling

OWC Mercury On-the-Go enclosure

I’ve previously written extensively about using solid state drives (SSD) for performance in Mac Performance Guide.

But an SSD can also be your smart move as a reliable alternative to hard drives, especially for travelers. To be clear, it’s not shock-proof, but an SSD has no moving parts and can take a lot more abuse than a hard drive.

OWC is now offering external solid state drives— a great idea for anyone traveling to remote places where reliability is key.

You can choose a 64GB, 128GB or 256GB SSD in the OWC Mercury On-the-Go enclosure. It connects via Firewire 800, Firewire 400, or USB, and the best part is that no external power cable is needed on any reasonably recent computer— just connect the data cable and go!

And of course if you ever want to re-purpose the speedy SSD for use internally in a Mac Pro, or MacBook Pro, just remove the SSD from the enclosure.
