Swap Drives at Will
When using the OWC Mercury Rack Pro in Independent mode*, all four drives appear on your system as individual volumes drives, so you can mix and match drives of any size and brand and hot swap** the drives too.
Smart Power regulates power during prolonged periods of inactivity to save operating costs and prolong component lifespan.
The OWC Mercury Rack Pro can easily be converted to a desktop form-factor via a Phillips screwdriver by simply removing the rack ears and installing the included anti-skid, vibration dampening feet.
*When using in independent mode via eSATA, you must use an eSATA Port Multiplier capable card.
Please see "Recommended eSATA Cards" in SPECS table and check for Port Multiplier compatibility.
**When using in Independent Mode and wanting to switch out one or more drives, ALL drives must be ejected (unmounted) from the Desktop to avoid data corruption.
