Transcend JetDrive 825 overview

  • 1Description

The 240GB JetDrive 825 Thunderbolt External SSD from Transcend takes a PCIe 3.0 x2 M.2 SSD and combines it with an aluminum Thunderbolt enclosure, thus providing a fast and portable storage drive for select Thunderbolt-equipped Apple systems, such as the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Mac mini, and Mac Pro.

The JetDrive 825 provides up to 240GB of storage and also features a 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt interface, 3D NAND flash memory, and is bus powered via Thunderbolt connectivity, meaning that no external power sources are required. Furthermore, the JetDrive can be used not just for storing documents, photos, music, and videos, it also delivers real-time performance for professional tasks, video editing, and 3D graphics with read and write speeds of up to 950 MB/s.

In addition to serving as external storage, the PCIe M.2 SSD can be removed from its external enclosure and installed within select Mac systems. To accomplish this, T5 and P5 screwdrivers are included. If you'd like to upgrade your Mac Pro or Mac mini, additional screwdrivers are required which are not included. Also included are rubber feet and protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

Please note that the warranty does not apply when the JetDrive Toolbox's wear-out indicator displays 0% within the warranty coverage.

    Transcend JetDrive 825 reviews

    240GB JetDrive 825 Thunderbolt External SSD is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the money, but keep these things in mind... -This device is not as fast as the stock drives on the latest Apple laptops. That is because the JetDrive uses an x2 link and Apple drives use an x4 link. My 2017 MacBook Air's read and write speeds decreased from about 1000mb/s to 700mb/s. You will notice that the device does not wake instantly when you open it, it takes a second or two. Boot times are also noticeably slower. -Battery life will decrease. The JetDrive is not as power efficient as the stock drive. My battery life went from about 9hrs to less than 8. -Apple won't void your warranty, however you will have to reinstall the stock drive to have the device serviced by Apple. -The instructions go into detail about the installation, but do not cover the much once you start up your device. Make sure you are familiar with formatting and partitioning storage devices prior to buying this product. -Be sure to download the JetDrive toolbox and enable Trim for optimal performance.
