Excellent upgrade for older Mac!

Middle American, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Only one found that wasn't from Apple that is compatible with Yosemite (due to trim support). Easy instillation with proper tools. Much faster than original HDD. Add longevity to older Mac by adding one of these and maximizing the memory. See manufacturers site to easily configure for your Mac.

What I Expect From OWC

Matt, Amazon
25 May 2015
  • Summary: The Mercury Extreme Pro SSD is representative of the quality I've come to expect from Other World Computing's products. I installed it in my primary work machine, an early 2011 17" MacBook Pro (replacing the OEM 5200rpm drive).

I love OWC

RichCastillo, Amazon
27 April 2015
  • Summary: I use 4 of these as RAID 0 in an OWC Thunder Bay Mini to get read write speeds of about 1000 MB/sec for video editing (tested on AJA System Test). I also use these as media cards in a Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera. They have no problem keeping up with the horrendous bandwidth demands of the camera.

SSD Transfer Speeds

Freestyler, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: After buying the 480G OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G I came to realize I wont be seeing the "near" 600gbs transfer speeds. I have a 2009 Mac Pro and found out the drive bay SATA max's out at 3gbs. In other words I could buy the cheaper Mercury Electra 3G and see the same results for less money.

Incredibly fast drive!

Mitchell Smith, Amazon
3 September 2014
  • Summary: When I purchased the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD to replace the stock Apple 256 GB SSD in my 2011 15" MacBook Pro (2.3 GHz i7 with 16 GB of RAM), I expected it to be faster. I figured that the Apple SSD was about 30% faster than the standard MacBook Pro hard drive, so maybe the Mercury would...
