“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 6 - Macenstein

“The 12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaway: Day 6

[Thank you, we have our winner. This contest is closed. Congratulations to faithful Macenstein reader RandomPerson]

On the Sixth Day After Christmas, Macenstein gave to you (or, more accurately, gave you a chance to win…) A 320GB OWC Mercury On-The-Go Oxford924 FireWire 800&400+USB2 5400RPM 8MB Cache Portable SATA 2.5″ based Storage Solution


That’s a fancy way of saying “hard drive”, dummy! And a big one too (at least storage-wise – at 320 GB!). Physically, it’s actually quite small and fits easily in your laptop bag inside its included carrying case. I have 2 of these, and I love them – perfect for running Time Machine on my MacBook Pro.

OWC 320 GB mercury drive
Above: Palm-sized, FireWire 400/800, and USB 2 connections, a cool carrying case and cables included! What more could you want?

Finally! Now you have no excuse not to back up your laptop (you know you’re not doing it).

The OWC Mercury On-The-Go FireWire 800/400 + USB 2.0 Portable Kit packs an incredible punch into a 3″Wx5.5″Lx1″H 11 ounce package!

If you’re looking for one of the most compatible mass storage solutions made, look no further! The OWC Mercury On-The-Go drive is all you’ll need! Packing a one-two punch of super fast FireWire 800 and USB 2.0, the OWC Mercury On-The-Go has what it takes to truly work cross platform.

The OWC Mercury On-The-Go keeps everything running silent while still keeping your drive cool with a built in aluminum heatsink underneath the hard drive, and passthrough cooling vents on the top of the case.

The OWC Mercury On-The-Go drive uses the latest Oxford chipset, the 924, for both FireWire 800/400 and USB 2.0. Designed to work with SATA hard drives, this chipset is the latest evolution of the best performing FireWire chipsets on the market.

FireWire/1394 makes it easy, OWC Mercury makes it faster! With transfer rates of up to 800mbs, plug and play connection, and professional level FireWire software, you will not go wrong with an OWC Mercury FireWire Drive.

To enter: Since the Mercury On-The-Go is all about space (both storage, and not physically taking up much), leave us a comment telling us what you think is the best Sci-Fi Space movie ever. Winners will be picked randomly 7 days later and notified (kind of like in The Ring, only with less killing… we hope). Open to all readers world-wide. Good luck, and thanks for reading Macenstein! (Oh, and be sure to enter ALL our “12 Days AFTER Christmas” Giveaways!)
Please note: Comments may take a while to show up, please do not double-post. Thanks!
