OWC has announced a new line of SSDs that it calls Prosumer drives. The new drives have blazing fast sustained data rates of 285MB/s and a five year warranty. The big news is that the drives still are able to come in at reasonable prices.

The Mercury Extreme Pro SSD is available right now in capacities of 60GB, 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB. The 60GB SSD sells for $219.99, 120GB is $379.99, 240GB is $699.99, and the 480GB version is $1579.99.

OWC promises that the SSDs maintain their fast performance with repeated use. The SSDs also have ECC built-in and use the SandForce controller. The drives are also power efficient with 1/7 less power use than other SSDs and 1/3 the power use of HDDs.
