Excellent upgrade for older Mac!

Middle American, Amazon
10 June 2015
  • 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.

This hard drive crashed in less than 1 year.

Matt, Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: The company is willing to replace it. It does have a 5 year warranty. But, it crashed without reason - and it's going to cost me nearly four times the amount of the hard drive itself to recover the data now stuck on this device.

This IS the SSD for this application ...

Portland Fella, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: For a Blackmagic Design Hyperdeck Shuttle, this is the SSD to have. There are SSDs available for half the price. However, be careful. They might work once or twice -- but then, POOF! -- economy models, even if rated for speed and throughput, fizzle. For shooting with my rig, this SSD works.
