Transcend Jetdrive 855 Overview

  • 1Description

Boost your system's performance with the 480GB JetDrive 855 Thunderbolt External SSD from Transcend. Combining a PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD with a 10 Gb/s Thunderbolt aluminum enclosure, the JetDrive 855 is a fast and portable storage solution for select Thunderbolt-equipped Apple systems such as the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro with Retina Display, Mac mini, and Mac Pro. The drive uses 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 only for storing documents, photos, music, and videos, but also delivers real-time performance for professional tasks, video editing, and 3D graphics with read and write speeds of up to 1600 and 1400 MB/s respectively.

In addition to serving as external storage, the PCIe 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, you'll require additional, separately available screwdrivers. Rubber feet are included in the package and protection is provided by a limited 5-year warranty.

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

General Features

Thunderbolt Technology in an Aluminum Alloy Enclosure

Expand Storage in a Flash
Upgrading your Mac with the 480GB JetDrive 855 helps ensure you have plenty of space for your documents, photos, music, and videos.
The Need for Speed
The JetDrive 855 uses the PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 interface paired with 3D NAND flash, resulting in read and write speeds of up to 1600 and 1400 MB/s respectively. The JetDrive 855 gives you fluid, real-time performance for professional tasks, video editing, and 3D graphics.
Manage Your Drive with JetDrive Toolbox
Developed by Transcend, the JetDrive Toolbox helps maintain a healthy and efficient SSD by keeping it up to date, preventing functional degradation, and predicting problems. The JetDrive Toolbox displays drive information, S.M.A.R.T. status for possible drive failures, a health indicator showing estimated lifespan remaining, and firmware upgrades.
