'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

Is your Mac Pro going places? It will be with the new OWC Rover Pro wheel kit.

Now, OK, Apple do make a wheel kit for the Mac Pro, but for $699 that's pretty steep for many people, even people who've just dropped many thousands on a Mac Pro. OWC's Rover Pro kit is normally priced at $249, but you can pick them up right now at the special pre-order price of $199.

So, what is the Rover Pro wheel kit? They're wheels that fit onto the bottom of the Mac Pro.

OWC Rover Pro

  • Toolless install: hand tightens in under two minutes
  • Highly positional: 360-degree articulating wheels
  • Non-marking soft rubber tread wheels with low friction bearings
  • Highly polished stainless-steel matches the Mac Pro
  • Vibration-absorbing silicone rubber pad preserves factory feet finish

The wheels are made of highly polished stainless steel, and feature vibration absorbing silicone rubber treads. They're smooth, silent, spin around 360-degrees on low friction bearings, and don't leave marks.

You can fit them and take them off in two minutes, no tools required.

There are even wheel stops for when you don't want your Mac Pro to roll away.

And they come with OWC's limited lifetime warranty.

The OWC Rover Pro can be ordered now at the special limited-time pricing, and will begin shipping in September.
