    OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSDAB2MB10 reviews

    1TB Aura Internal SSD for MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina (Mid-2013 & Later) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only 1TB option I purchased this 1TB SSD for my MacBook Air (early 2015, Retina display) to replace the original 128GB drive. The OWC drive was/is frustratingly expensive, but other M.2 drives will not work with these recent MacBooks. I have not tested the read and write speed of the OWC drive (or the original drive, either), but my computer is noticeably faster with the new drive. If I did not know better, I would think that I had a new computer, or at least a faster processor and more RAM. Programs load faster, Photoshop CS6 runs smoothly, macOS Sierra does not hesitate nearly as frequently (perhaps updates helped this too), 150+GB images save quickly, etc. It makes the MacBook Air (early 2015, 1.6GHZ i5, 4GB RAM) almost as comfortable to use for photo editing as my more powerful MacBook Pro (late 2013, 23.GHz i7, 16GB RAM). I have no way of judging the ultimate reliability of this drive (or any other). At this price, and for this market, though, it seems unlikely that OWC is going cheap for the sake of competition.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fast and works with BootCamp. Works great at a much lower price than the Apple OEM part. Very fast and responsive. Note that several reviewers report this does not work with Boot Camp, which is not true. There are instructions included with the drive to download a driver that re-adds BootCamp compatibility. see: http://www.owcdigital.com/support/software-drivers.html Note that it does show as an external drive in Finder, but is no big deal.
