nice replacement for an antique Mac ;)

  • Summary: I'd be nice to have more space, but for what we use it for this little drive was the right price and fit and connected up just fine on our original MacBook Air.

Ultimately worked ok!

Joseph A Fisher, Amazon
20 August 2013
  • Summary: Bought two of these via Amazon. Shipped only one but the vendor made good on the 2nd one very promptly. They both ultimately worked ok but not as advertised. The preloaded backup software did not work. I had to use a personal copy of Acronis to backup my old drive and then restore to the new larger RunCore drive. The included drive holder came in handy to facilitate this maneuver.

Expensive, but worth it

C. Tasker, Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: My original Macbook Air 1,1 is still going strong, but the stock SSD was just too small, and even after a full reinstall was still a bit slow. This upgrade costs a bit more than I would like, simply because there's so little competition for PATA SSDs. I chose the RunCore because it supposedly supports trim, it performs well, and its reasonably priced. The SSD works great, and performs well, but even with the trim enabler, I can't get trim to work on the MBA 1,1.

So far, so good with this product, but like most SSDs, only time will truly tell. External drive kit a nice bonus.

  • Summary: We have an original MacBook Air (the very first one) and this is pretty much the only option for and SSD upgrade. That being said, the RunCore has been a solid and very noticeable upgrade to the original 80GB drive in terms of both speed and capacity. If one is careful and has the right tools (think very small 0 and 00 Phillips screwdrivers and a couple of spudgers) and works at a methodical pace, the drive upgrade can be done as a DIY project (iFixit has an excellent...

128 GB RunCore Pro IV replaces Early 2008 MBA HDD

dtech, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: This product was used to replace my failed Early 2008 MacBook Air HDD. I used the YouTube video to help me disassemble the MBA and installed this SSD effortlessly. Now I have 128GB vs the original 80GB. It feels even faster now. Excellent product! Too bad it didn't come any bigger!

50 mm 64G solid state drive for Dell and Asus netbooks

W. Mayhew, Amazon
8 December 2011
  • Summary: There aren't many choices when it comes time to upgrade the IDE PATA solid state hard drive in Dell or Asus netbooks with 50mm size SSD drives. It is pretty much generic or the Pro IV series of SSDs from Runcore. I read reviews of generic SSDs and it seemed to be a maybe yes, maybe no in successfully installing and getting the generic model to work properly.

Worth the wait

Jimmie L. Muggy Jr. "Think Linux Think Free", Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I have the Dell Mini12 and I do not recommend it for Linux users, or users that like to upgrade. That being said, I really am happy with the SSD when it finally arrived. Best price found was for the APPLE version, go figure that one! Have to reformat before installing, Mini12 did not want to boot with the SSD formatted for APPLE. Installed old drive in supplied case and using it for external drive. Boot time from Bios screen is 25 seconds, shuts down in 6-7 seconds.
