    OWC / Other World Computing Aura Pro XB SSD reviews

    Aura Pro X 480GB SSD Upgrade Solution for MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Late 2013 - Mid 2015) and MacBook Air (Mid 2013 -Mid 2017) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heats up! It works great, it's great to have more space, but the Macbook (High Sierra - Mid 2014) heats up. The cooling fan stays on almost all the time, even in basic functions such as accessing the internet. Regarding the battery consumption I did not have time to notice great differences, but with this heating it is probable that the battery lasts less. Reasonably satisfied.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Un poco complicado de instalar Algunas complicaciones para instalar, adem�s que la la macbook ha tomado unos d�as para volver a estar rapida como con el disco duro anterior, aun as�, pasan cosas raras desde que cambi� por este nuevo disco duro, en fin no estoy muy contento con el resultado.
