Nice update for an old iMac

It will take time to install this SSD, but it worth it. The speed is significantly improved. Remember just remove all the original hard drive.

A Well Needed Upgrade

B&H is my go to whenever I need tech support and product direction. This 1TB internal drive made all the difference for my older MacBook Pro. The start up is quick and pricing very fair. Most of all I appreciate the knowledgable assistance I have received as a regular customer of many years.

Easy install, much more space!

Really needed this expansion for my internal drive space. Great quality, no issues. Easy to install - just watched the OWC installation video. The longest part of the process was transferring data from the old drive to the new one - I'd recommend doing this overnight so it doesn't disrupt your work day.

Good to Go on Mid 2014 Macbook Pro w/Retina

SSD shipped quickly and was New in the original packaging. OWC provides easy to follow install videos and swapping the old out for the new SSD was completed in under a half hour. I installed a 1 TB SSD and utilized my timemachine as a backup for the new installation on the OWC AURA X2 1TB SSD. Everything went well and my laptop is like new again with speed and more than enough storage. Don't hesitate on doing the upgrade you will be glad you did!

OWC strikes again it's awesome!

i used it to replace my SSD for my macbook pro late 2013 with retina that got water damage, it works great. but as usual the read and write speeds are lower than advertised. it came well packaged, so that's great for a fragile package.

Fast!

Took about 3 hours to do this upgrade; all the parts were correct fit, tools worked great, and I even had a couple of screws leftover, which is always a plus?
