Get 4TB of SSD for about $776, Install in $90 Dual-Bay External — Super Convenient Capacious Storage

See OWC external SSD wish list and other wish lists.

Get two of the special deal Micron 2TB SSDs and install into the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual enclosure (USB 3.1 gen 2 via USB-C as well as compatibility via USB-A, both cables supplied). WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.

A 2TB SSD or two are useful in many other scenarios also! For example, older laptops with SATA drives, any PC or Mac with SATA bays.

I just ordered some—I will RAID-0 stripe them; the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual enclosure supports hardware RAID-0, RAID-1, SPAN or JBOD in the enclosure.

Any 2.5" drive like this SSD can also be housed in things like the OWC Thunderbay 4 or the single-drive OWC Elite Pro Mini or the OWC Drive Dock. See all OWC external enclosures.

Update: these SSDs do NOT work in the OWC Thunderbay 4 (ditto for OWC’s own 2TB SSD).

For my purposes, I want bus powered operation in a compact form factor for portability, even if I don’t get full performance, hence the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual enclosure.

These will be perfect for taking along a couple of years work on a very compact external SSD in my Mercedes Sprinter photography adventure van—I do not want to deal with bulky and heavy hard drives in the van. For that matter, they will be terrific at home used for many purposes, including a silent 4TB backup drive (2 X 2TB = 4TB).

I’m not yet certain, but the OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dual enclosure bus powers two SSDs off many Macs, including the iMac 5K and iMac Pro (tested tonight with dual 480GB, works great, so I’m assuming the Microns will bus power just fine).
