The high-capacity, high-performance Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 was engineered for performance-intensive applications such as HD-video, digital photography, professional music, graphics and backup. Choose between five different RAID levels for the best combination of speed, capacity and redundancy for your needs.

Four 3.5" Serial ATA (SATA I/II) hard disk drives in a brushed aluminum enclosure with Hardware RAID setting flexibility and up to 300MB/s data transfer speed for high performance data storage and redundancy.

Thanks to a front panel selector switch, the Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 enables easy configuration of the Hardware RAID settings - Span, 0, 1, 5, 10 - so you can select the best combination of speed, capacity, redundancy, or any combination of the three.
