    OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSDACL6G.S reviews

    Accelsior S PCIe Adapter for 2.5" SATA III SSD Drives is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mac OS Update Failure We purchased 14 of these for our v4,1 and v5,1 Mac Pro's which had already been updated with Micron 500GB SSD's. The v4,1 Mac Pro's also had the Flash ROM Update convert them to v5,1 units. Unfortunately, all attempts to upgrade the Mac OS from 10.11.6 (El Capitan) to 10.13.6 (High Sierra) failed. After download the computer would not shutdown to initiate the install. We were forced to remove the OWC PCIe adapter, reinstall the SSD drives back on their NewerTech SATA Adapters before the OS update would complete successfully. After the OS update the SSD drives were reinstalled o the OWC PCIe adapters and would boot and run without and problems.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not boot in all PCs I bought this so I could use a Samsung SSD to boot my PC computer (Dell T5500).� But after hours of research and contacting tech support, it is clear that it cannot be used for a boot drive in my computer.� The BIOS will not recognize the device, and I am using the latest bios available for my computer.� The adapter works fine if you do not want to boot from it, however.� So beware, the description for this product is misleading.� If you want a boot device, get the IOCrest PCI Express card instead, but definitely do not use their drivers!� Use the default Windows drivers instead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super easy way to add fast SSD to Mac Pro! I used this with a Samsung Pro 850 512GB to replace my original hard drive in my Mac Pro 5,1. Super easy, no drivers needed. Booted fine after install and am thinking of getting another one soon as I still have more PCIe slots available.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Writing Speed is low. I have a Mac Pro 5.1 and use this card with Mercury Extreme Solid Drive. Reading speed is over 500 MB but writing speed is like 230 MB. Other than that it is fast. No problem so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one.. If your like me and were looking for a faster PCIe replacement for the discontinued Apricorn Velocity X2 ( the X1 card is nowhere as fast ), then this is the card youll want to order.  While the OWC only gives you the single 2.5 inch connection, the Apricorn X1 does give you an extra SATA input ( which is nice ) but with the Apricorn X2 speed no longer available this is your best option.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OWC / Other World Computing Accelsior S PCIe Adapter for 2.5 The easiest way to speed up your operating system is by using the PCIe adapter for your SSD 2.5" SATA III drive. Blazing fast boot up and running of all your programs. Highly recommended upgrade using this OWC PCIe adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy As with most OWC products, I'm very satisfied. Install SSD drive of your choice and enjoy the increased transfer/read speed. I use it for my boot drive with a 5.1 Mac Pro.
