Rating: 5/5 Works well, as expected at this price point June 24, 2018 No hassle. Plug and play. Easy as.

Can now boot my old MacBook from my new one and access all my old files. Or just use as new external USB drive.

Would be nice if it was faster though. Maybe if it had USB C?

Rating: 4/5 works flawlessly March 22, 2018 I had a 2013 macbook pro that unfortunately died an SMC death. I needed my data and this worked flawlessly. The construction is high quality. The only clue it wasn't made by apple is the thick, stiff, black cable it comes with. It has a special connector on the end that connects to the case, so I don't think you can't replace it with a better one. For that reason, and the high price, I give it four stars. This is the only game in town, though, so you're not going to find another option somewhere else. I guess we Apple people are used to paying a lot anyway. I am, however, glad this exists because professional data recovery is way, way, way more expensive. Thank you, OWC. I also now have an nifty external drive, so that's cool too.

I should add that my old SSD drive was encrypted so I wasn't totally sure if this would work for me without actually booting from the drive. I was pleasantly surprised when I was prompted to enter my password when attempting to access the drive with finder. I got my data without a problem.

Response from MacSales.com, Call Center March 23, 2018 Hello! The connection on the enclosure is actually just a micro USB 3.0 connection. There are multiple cables that you can use to connect the enclosure to the computer if you are looking for a longer option.

Rating: 5/5 Exactly what I needed! February 19, 2017 I had been searching for this over the last 4 months. Every time I thought I had found it, there was some detail that would surface that made it incompatible with my drive. Finally, I found your website which provided me with all the info I needed to be sure that I was ordering the right enclosure. It was shipped the same day and I received it 3 days earlier than the delivery date shown on my invoice. Within 15 minutes after receiving it, I had it assembled and plugged in to my Mac Book Pro. It was instantly recognized and mounted on the desktop. When I opened it, there was ALL my data which I had feared lost. Thank-you MacSales.com. This was a lifesaver for me!

Rating: 5/5 Leave it to OWC to step up when Apple goes rogue! May 28, 2016 If you can sort thru all the technicalities of solid-state drives and compatibility of various drives versus enclosures, you can't do better than these Envoy Pro enclosures. Solid, compact and very well designed. Trust OWC's guidance to match enclosure to SSD and you'll be good to go.

Rating: 5/5 Enclosures are great, especially when upgrading to a new Laptop! February 6, 2016 We use these enclosures all the time when clients bring us computers that are no longer worth fixing. We tell them to recycle the computer but hang on to the backup drive we provided! Enclosures are great, especially when upgrading to a new Laptop!
