1.0TB 5100 Pro Series

2.5-Inch | SATA 6.0Gb/s
Up to 540MB/s Read, 520MB/s Write
Micron's 5100 solid state drive (SSD) uses a single-chip controller with a SATA interface on the system side and four channels of Micron NAND Flash internally.
The SSD is designed to use the SATA interface efficiently during both READs and WRITEs while delivering bandwidth-focused performance. SSD technology enables enhanced boot times, faster application load times, reduced power consumption and extended reliability.
The self-encrypting drive (SED) features a AES-256 encryption engine, providing hardware-based, secure data encryption, with no loss of SSD performance. This SED follows the TCG Enterprise specification for trusted peripherals. When TCG Enterprise features are not enabled, the device can perform alternate data encryption by invoking the ATA security command set encryption features, to provide full disk encryption (FDE) managed in the host system BIOS. TCG Enterprise and ATA security feature sets cannot be enabled simultaneously.
The data encryption is always running; however, encryption keys are not managed and the data is not secure until either TCG Enterprise or ATA security feature sets are enabled.

Rating: 5/5 Low price, High speed, reliability July 21, 2019 As described both spec and mark, Micron 5100 Pro 1TB has fairly nice speed. I assembled a new computer with this SSD, installed windows 10 and there was no problem at all. no freezing, no BSD, no unknown Error till now. I really recommend this SSD to you guys considering a new computer or upgrade. There are cheaper and super cheapest SSDs in market, but if you consider reliability of system a little bit, dont use that cheapest things. use this nice SSD.

Rating: 5/5 Super Fast June 18, 2019 I replaced the stock 500GB 5400 RPM HDD in my 2012 Mac mini with this SSD. The result was absolutely outstanding. This SSD performs so well, and gives me the speed that I have been hoping for. EVERYTHING loads in an instant and the system runs flawlessly. I highly recommend this drive to anyone trying to bring new life to a perfectly good Mac, that it is just older. LOVE this SSD. Once again, OWC has come through. Not only is the drive Awesome, but the price and speed of shipping was above and beyond.

Thank you OWC for another Great product. Customer for life......Ryan

Rating: 5/5 Works Great...Great Price... May 27, 2019 I was looking for an SSD to speed up an old Imac (late 2012, 21.5", 2.7 GHz, 1TB HDD, 8GB). The price on these Micron SSD's looked good, OWC confirmed the should work with the imac, and the specs looked good. So I decided to get 2. Hoped to use one as an external boot drive for the old Imac and 1 to use as an external backup drive for my Macbook Pro (late 2013 retina w/8GB and 120GB factory SSD). Used a USB 3.0 to SATA external enclosure w/UASP and used a USB 3.0 to SATA cable w/UASP support to connect to the Macbook Pro. Both machines are running OSX 10.14 Mojave.

Both USB connected external drives performed about the same. The Macbook Pro managed 400 MB/s writes and about 420 MB/s reads. Not as fast on reads as the stock Macbook Pro internal ssd...which is about 610 MB/s, but it writes faster than the stock (290 MB/s).

The Imac connection did a little better on writes at about 420 MB/s and the same on reads. The internal HDD manages about 95/100 on reads/writes. Not sure if replacing the internal HDD with the SSD will increase speed enough to be worth cracking open. I bought the screen installation tape with the intent of doing that, but not sure I want to risk it. Boot time (on switch to password entry screen) dropped from about 70 seconds to 37 seconds.

Anyway, I am happy with them! Thanks OWC for getting what seems like a great price on these Micron SSDs!

Rating: 5/5 Great SSD May 7, 2019 Wow! That is all I can say. The difference is remarkable! I installed this SSD in my Macbook Pro (2012), and the results are astounding. Bootup went from almost a minute to as little as 15 seconds! Launching files was already ok, but now is almost instantaneous! A few seconds at most. Operating temp has dropped by 20-40 degrees. I was looking for a little more speed, but got lots more. Installation was no harder than a regular HDD, basic for somebody with moderate skills. If you can find a good deal (always easy here at OWC) make the upgrade to SSD. You will never regret it, guaranteed!
