OWC Unveils The MiniStack High Performance External Storage



/ 2 years ago

OWC

OWC is a pioneering zero emissions company which specialises in creating storage solutions for PC and Mac. The latest product to arrive is the miniStack, a power external drive with USB 3/1 connectivity. The unusual design is intended to slot on top of a Mac Mini and greatly enhance the storage performance within a sleek, singular design. In particular, the miniStack provides transfer speeds up to 208MB/s, capacities up to 6TB and an ultra-quiet MagLev cooling fan. Not only that, there’s a premium aluminium enclosure and glossy black top which complements the Mac Mini’s styling. This makes it a great choice for backups and storing large sums of data.

Jen Soulé, President of OWC said about the new miniStack:

“The OWC miniStack is an exciting new addition to our external storage lineup. Its footprint is identical to 2010 and later Mac mini, so it’s a perfect external drive and Time Machine backup for our customers who use a Mac mini as a home computer, or with their home entertainment system,”

“We designed the miniStack to be our most convenient, stackable external storage solution-and we think our customers who use a Mac at home are going to love its compact and stylish design.”

Users who use a Mac mini as a server for their home entertainment system will enjoy miniStack as a natural extension of their media libraries.
