I have 2 of these. 1 when I updated the drive and one when I got rid of an old MacBook. In both cases I ended up with external SSDs...quiet, nothing to break, portable. Great product

It works!

This OWC ENVOY worked great with the hard drive from my MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012) and was out of stock at the manufacture's web site. Thanks to B&H, I did not need to wait long to finish my project.

How do I insert my ssd I took out of my mid 2014 Mac Book Pro with Retina 15 laptop into this enclosure?
Asked by: Anonymous
You must open the case, carefully because the plastic of the led falls down, and then you just insert your ssd hard disk drive, its only one way to put it in.

Does this work with an M.2 NVME SSD? Thanks!

No, this is specifically made for the Apple SSD. An M2 SSD has completely different pinouts.
