    OWC / Other World Computing Mercury Aura reviews

    120GB Mercury Aura Pro MBA Solid State Drive is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Standard mSATA 1.8 SSD hard drive with mac cables The OEM drive that came with the Macbook Air (A1304) is smaller than an standard 1.8 hard drive. It uses a ZIF connector and it's enclosed in a rubber case and a special chassis that's screwed down into the board. I thought the OWC SSD would be a similar hard drive with the same dimensions and ZIF connector. It's actually a standard mSATA 1.8 SSD. It includes a small tool kit, stickers and a mSATA to mac cable (as seen in the photos). The OWC drive is a tight fit in the available space, and the cable needs to be folded precisely to fit in the available space. The drive will not fit into the rubber case or chassis, and has to be inserted by itself. The stickers are there to keep the hard drive in place and to tuck some of the wires. Performance wise, it's a huge improvement. The Mac boots quickly and programs load almost immediately. People might run into problems during the OS install. Remember to partition the drive using disk utility to get the computer to recognize the drive.
