The 480GB JetDrive 720 SATA III JetDrive Internal SSD from Transcend is a replacement SSD with 495 MB/s read and 427 MB/s write speeds for your MacBook. This upgrade kit includes tools, instructions, and an enclosure case that is less than 0.5" thick for housing your original drive. Inside the kit are two types of screwdrivers and a step-by-step guide on how to open your MacBook and copy over the data from your original drive to the JetDrive SSD. Once the JetDrive has been installed, use the JetDrive Toolbox software to check health status and enable TRIM support.

If you want to reuse the original drive as a portable drive for extra storage, Transcend has also provided an enclosure case for it. The enclosure is made from aluminum for protection and is powered via USB 3.0, which supports data transfer rates of up to 5 Gb/s. When you need to travel, use the included pouch to protect the enclosure from scratches.

    Transcend JetDrive 720 reviews

    480GB JetDrive 720 SATA III JetDrive Internal SSD is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended Paid for new drive but was disappointing in receiving what turned out to be an open box or a return from B & H. The drive was already formatted Mac OS Extended, I reformatted; after the install disk utility shows the disk has been re-formatted 3 times so definitly not brand new. To far though the install to turn back so carried on. Instructions are not good the booklet and Transcends Web site are not for my Late 2012 MBPR 13 the SSD is located under the mouse pad not in the position shown. Google for instructions, iFixit's were easy to follow, disconnecting the battery was hardest part, suggest you get a plastic guitar pick or something nonmetallic to pry the SSD connector of the motherboard its pretty tight. Fairly straightforward to complete the upgrade, now have more space drive appears to be quicker than the stock 128Gb SSD it replaced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid choice This is a great internal SSD upgrade choice. Have not done speed tests with it yet, but it has not been a bottleneck for video editing. Much less expensive than getting a larger SSD from Apple originally.
