Aura Pro X2
240GB NVMe SSD Upgrade Solution
for MacBook Pro w/ Retina Display (Late 2013 - Mid 2015) and MacBook Air (Mid 2013 -Mid 2017)

Mac
Complete Internal Flash/SSD Drive Upgrade Kit with Tools & 1.0TB OWC Express USB 3.0 Portable Storage Solution
Your Mac. More Space. Twice as Fast.
High-Performance + Extra Storage
Your new internal storage upgrade should be a seamless experience. That's why Aura Pro X2 SSD upgrade kits come with the 1.0TB OWC Express USB 3.0 Portable Storage Solution.

With this solution you get the best of two worlds - a new super fast internal SSD and a new 1TB external drive. This new external drive allows for a easy pre upgrade backup to make the SSD install trouble free and then afterwards you have a spacious drive for data storage or backup purposes. Even better OWC offers a trade in program for the original Apple drive.
Keep On Innovating
Tight deadlines, long nights, and terabytes of media – your Mac has been with you through it all. If storage is tight, there's no reason to ditch the Mac you know and love. The Aura® Pro X2 SSD gives you up to 16 times more space and the speed to keep up with your imagination today and tomorrow. Upgrade your Mac with Aura Pro X2 SSD for a fraction of the cost of a new model and keep your Mac running for years.
Blazing Fast and Super Cool
Aura Pro X2 combines speed, stamina, and efficiency that will change the way you experience your Mac. With read speeds reaching 2989MB/s and write speeds of 1208MB/s, the 240GB Aura Pro X2 is up to twice as fast as the original SSDs, delivering performance on par with the latest models. It runs cooler and consumes less power than earlier SSD models, so you can run at peak for longer than ever.
Maintain Your Edge
When it's go time, getting off the line and maintaining a high level of performance are equally important. Aura Pro X2 is engineered with advanced SLC caching, providing instant full-speed write acceleration, meaning those media projects and games stream fluidly and respond without lag time. You might even forget what that beachball looks like.
Continuous Compatibility
Aura Pro X2 is designed for the latest macOS versions (macOS High Sierra 10.13 and later), taking full advantage of the advanced features of APFS including: strong encryption, copy-on-write metadata, space sharing, cloning for files and directories, snapshots, fast directory sizing, atomic safe-save primitives, and improved file system fundamentals.
Right-Sized for Work and Play
The smaller stock SSDs for Mac can fill up quickly, especially with photo and video files, games, or even your email. Aura Pro X2 SSDs are available in capacities up to 2TB, giving you more space to work and play. Newly calibrated to use less power and run cooler, Aura Pro X2 is the best way to upgrade your PCIe equipped Mac.
No Hassles or Hacks Compatibility
Aura Pro X2 PCIe-based flash storage upgrades are precisely engineered for your Mac laptop, so you'll never need to compromise your data by relying on complicated software hacks or TRIM-enablers to get the most from your upgrade. Just install, migrate your data, and enjoy the great performance of flash storage with up to 16 times the capacity of the factory-installed drive.
7% Over Provisioning
OWC SSDs perform maintenance tasks in the background that optimize the health, performance, and endurance of your flash drive. These jobs take advantage of available, unwritten areas on the SSD. Aura Pro X2 PCIe-based flash storage reserves 7% of the overall capacity as free space. Always. With this allocated free space, Aura SSDs can perform these normal maintenance tasks making your drive more stable, dependable, and ultimately a safer place to store your data.
Quality That Lasts
Aura Pro X2 SSDs are proudly designed in Austin and are backed by a lifetime of free, award-winning USA-based support.

Reviewer: vd-96036
Rating: 5/5 Working like a charm! August 11, 2021 I replace my failed 1 TB SSD on mid-2015 MacPro. I didn't test, but it's definitely faster reading and writing speed. Also, it stops crashing on Catalina. After 2-3 weeks of using it, I decided to upgrade to Big Sur. Create bootable USB for Catalina and Big Sur, have a full backup on Time Machine with external 1 TB WD Elements. It's NO crashes on Big Sur too. I am happy with the product. I tried to use the Envoy enclosure with an old 1 TB SSD without luck using it. MacOS or Windows or Ubuntu can see it, but I can't reformat it. Hard drove is gone. I'll buy another 1 or 2 TB from OWC to use the Envoy enclosure cause it looks reliable and nice.

Reviewer: elliefs
Rating: 5/5 Laptop Broke, Used This To Fix! July 7, 2021 My SSD broke and instead of paying over $500 to get it fixed by Apple or an authorized repair shop, I decided to buy this instead and fix it myself.

All the instructions were written for people who are trying to save all their data and swap information to a new, upgraded SSD. I was in a bit of a different situation, since my SSD was completely broken and I'd already accepted the data loss. I tried the repair on my own using the instructions given, but couldn't quite get it to work, even after running through the whole process twice. (This wasn't because the instructions were faulty, it's just that I was in a different boat than the other people doing this install.) I hopped online and started a chat with MacSales customer support and told them my situation and they immediately told me exactly what to do, and it worked perfectly the first time. Have been using my laptop for a few weeks ago and it's running just as well as it was before the SSD broke. Truly a lifesaver, and such a cost effective way to do it.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

I bought it with the enclosure and it also came with the kit to open up my MacBook Pro 15 and replace the original Apple SSD. Mine was an international purchase, but still it took just 5 days end-to-end. The invoice was clear, which made clearing customs and paying my import duties easy and hassle free. I will probably now buy another one for my 2015 MacBook Air .

I loved the walk-through installation videos.

The support help desk was very knowledgable and helped fix the issues I ran into.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from 1.0TB OWC Aura Pro X2 SSD Upgrade Solution for Select 2013 and Later MacBook Air & MacBook Pro.
