The Mercury Pro External USB 3.0 Blu-Ray Reader/Writer includes a 2' USB 3.0 cable, two Philips 4x BD-R discs in cases, and operates using an included 100 ~ 240 VAC power supply at 50-60 Hz. It is protected by a limited 1-year warranty.

Configured for Your Workflow
Now with an updated design, Mercury Pro brings optical media back to your workflow. With a sleek, durable aluminum chassis and a USB 3.0 interface, Mercury Pro delivers reliable performance that is cool and quiet

USB 3.0 Connectivity
The Mercury Pro is plug-and-play compatible with both Mac and PC workflows, making it a versatile solution. With USB 3.0 connectivity, playback of optical media, data transfers, and archiving all happen as quickly

Long-Term Archiving
M-DISC is a solution for safe and long-term data storage, and the Mercury Pro supports this format, making it a good solution for reliable long-term backup and archiving. M-DISC is an archival-quality storage solution that helps protect your data from degradation and loss for 1,000 years or more.

M-DISCs use a proprietary layer made from inorganic, rock-like material for permanent data storage, protected from data rot and extremes of light, humidity, and temperature change. Because the M-DISC ready Mercury Pro engraves the data into this layer, write once and read virtually forever

Reliability & Support
The Mercury Pro is backed by OWC's limited 1-year warranty and 24/7 customer support
