Other World Computing (OWC), a Mac and PC technology company, announced its new line of OWC Mercury Pro Blu-ray “Quad Interface” external drive solutions. The first Blu-ray external drives on the market offering a “Quad Interface” of FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB 2.0 and eSATA, the OWC Mercury Pro drives feature 4X Blu-ray disc write speed for burning up to 1 GB of data per minute; a data-transfer rate up to 150 MB per second; plug-and-play connection flexibility; and the convenience of compatibility with both Windows and Macintosh systems.
