The Aura (pictured above) offers up to eight times the original factory capacity, extending the life of your MacBook. The folks at took the Aura SSD for a spin, calling out the simplicity of the solution.

The Aura SSD is a tier-1 flash drive that gives you superior reliability, performance, and compatibility. There is nothing else you need to install, no software hacks or TRIM enablers. Plug the Aura into your MacBook Air, and it just works.”

Reviewer Rich Lefko also noted that the Aura simply adds free space without complication. 

“My MacBook Air booted right up and once that was completed I ejected the Envoy Pro. I had to log back into Dropbox, and believe it or not, that was the extent of my post installation fixes. I went and checked how much disk space I now have. Just look at all of that free space!”
