Transcend JetDrive 725 overview

  • 1Description

The 480GB JetDrive 725 SATA III JetDrive Internal SSD from Transcend is a replacement SSD with 500 MB/s read and 430 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.

The 480GB JetDrive 725 works with Mid 2012 - Early 2013 MacBook Pro Retina 15" Models 10,1

    Transcend JetDrive 725 reviews

    480GB JetDrive 725 SATA III JetDrive Internal SSD is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 29 days Could be I got a lemon. I guess the most redeeming quality is that it was kind enough to die within the first 30 days. Was typing away in a safari browser, system locked then went black screen. After a reboot it said unable to find root device. Tried to format it and restore from backup and it stated that the drive could not be formatted. Even attempted to format with gparted, no luck. I have had issues with transcend flask drives in the past and was skeptical of this one from the get go. That said when it did work it was faster than the stock drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD Replacement I replaced the 256GB internal SSD on my 2012 Macbook Pro Retina with the Transcend Jetdrive 725 480GB. I've been using it for about 2 weeks and its been working great. Pros * Easy installation * Comes with all the necessary tools * Faster than stock SSD(430MBps Write/490MBps Read on Black Magic) * Comes with external enclosure so the old drive can be used as an external drive Cons * Price per GB is a more than your typical SSD

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast & Reliable Internal or External SSD The JetDrive 725 is a extremely fast and reliable internal or external SSD. I have several rMBP and a JetDrive for each one with a complete bootable copy of the internal drive. I can effectively have all four macs in one location by using the JetDrives as an external drive, It is very fast, as fast a the internal SSD. There are no negatives that I found thus far. I expect the JetDrives to provide great service for years.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings Several things.. Very poor documentation. The MBPr has to be taken apart to install the drive. The screws are all slightly different in lengths and the documentation makes no mention of it that you should be careful in making sure you know where they go back. Fortunately I knew this. What is really odd is that they have an excellent pdf on their website for the install which should be what is included with the product. An excellent step-by-step video is there as well. I researched this product just before the release of Yosemite and went this this brand over another. I wanted to make sure that TRIM could be enabled for the health of the SSD drive and all the documentation and video said it could. Well Transcend no longer supports this feature which worries me about the longevity of the drive as an SSD does wear out. The jury is still out on that one. I wish I had done a battery life calculation before the install but it does appear to use more power and battery life does appear not as good. So these issues warrant a middle grade.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Easy to install. The included instructions aren't the best, but there are great instructions available online. Computer is much faster now with free space.
