Rating: 5/5 Excellent product! June 16, 2021 I purchased this drive to troubleshoot a problem with my wife's 2017 iMac, which had been exhibiting exceedingly slow performance. After installing the most recent MacOS and restoring her account to the new drive, the speed difference has been DRAMATIC! It has increased the performance of the machine by at least 500 percent! The computer now runs solely off this drive. So incredibly pleased with this purchase!

Rating: 5/5 A SSD made a radical difference in the speed of my old MBP May 22, 2021 What a radical difference the 6G SSD made in my new-to-me, but long in the tooth mid-2012 MacBook Pro. I had already upgraded the memory via OWG, thinking I would gain some OS speed, but I did not. It was still sluggish. Spinning beachballs as the OS loaded. Ergo the original hard drive itself was the problem. No more spinning beachballs, Catalina loads in a flash. This is my first 6G SSD that I have bought. I bought 3G SSDs in the past, and I’ve been pleased with them, except they ran terribly hot causing motherboard problems. This SSD seems to run cooler which is critical for the long life maintenance of these elderly Macs.

Reviewer: HappyBass-12345
Rating: 5/5 SSD Supercharged an Old MacBook Pro May 10, 2021 My wife's older MacBook Pro 9,2 (with an Intel i5 CPU) was really struggling to boot and function after the upgrade to Catalina. My kids nicknamed it "MacBook Slow." We were reluctant to restart it ever because it would take 20 minutes or so to fully boot back up. Even then, it would be very unresponsive and it took forever to do anything with it. It also seemed to loose more and more speed over time. (I cannot rule out that the HD was starting to deteriorate/fail, and it was most certainly fragmented.)

After following some online tips for optimizing it's performance, there was a slight improvement, but not enough to make things interesting.

The new Apple File System (APFS) that High Sierra and upwards automatically installs on your internal drive is actually designed specifically to take advantage of the performance benefits of SSD drives. I had no idea how huge a difference it would make on this older systems when I upgraded the half-terabyte OEM hard drive to a 1TB SSD. WOW!!!

The MacBook is now a PRO again! Boot time is comparable to to my much newer MacBook Pro 14,3 that already had a factory-installed SSD (and a 3.1 Ghz i7 CPU). Applications load as what we would consider a "normal" speed again. The laptop literally has life again, and has become a very usable tool for my wife and the kids. I highly recommend an upgrade to an SSD now that the prices are so reasonable on them, especially if you are using an operating system capable of using the APFS file system.

BTW: I upgraded our old 2007 vintage iMac that my younger kids use with a 1TB 3G SSD too. It is only capable of HFS+ formatting since it cannot go beyond El Capitan, but I can still see a noticable improvement in the system. And the smaller size of the 2.5" SSD in its adapter cradle to fit the 3.5" space really improved the air flow inside the machine. So whether you are running an older system on HFS+ formatting, but especially if you can upgrade to APFS, I highly recommend you make the move to a more reliable (and lower heat-generating) SSD like these units from OWC. They can extend the life of your equipment and provide improved performance.

Some wouldn't boot after cloning and some would just crawl. Figured I had a bad HD cable but ordered this and a cable. Tried to install the SSD with out the cable to see if it was the other drives or the cable and much to my surprise this drive took a time machine restore and booted up perfect. Happy to have my Mac back up and working and have a extra HD cable JIC.

Rating: 5/5 FAR BETTER THEN I EXPECTED April 4, 2019 I have a 9.2 Macbook Pro, I had a Hitachi 750GB 7200RPM drive which was a UPGRADE from Apple!$$$ haha Tech Tool Pro was giving warnings showing about 50% on the drive! So Time to UPGRADE! This was the speed 6G to be fully compatible with the bus! I used apples own software to clone and transfer everything! PERFECT! I didn't do any testing but I WILL SAY! that the start up is maybe 1/4 of the time for start up! WOW.! The over all function is SO MUCH FASTER! I ran bench mark 3 because what I have paid for! Showed from a test a year ago anything to do with the hard drive major updates! And Just so much faster on EVERYTHING! Wish I had done it a year ago when I started getting warnings! Do it! you will be satisfied!

Rating: 5/5 Great price for a great product February 1, 2019 This SSD is fast fast fast. Can't beat the price you pay for it either, it will certainly(coupled with new ram) breathe new life into just about any machine you put it into.

Rating: 5/5 Why didn't I do this sooner? January 17, 2019 Never thought I'd review an SSD, but this review really is about the whole OWC experience--the SSD, the install tools, and the incredible install videos. I'm pretty handy technologically, so installing it for me wasn't difficult. Just take your time and keep a neat workspace. I put this into my mid-2012 iMac i7, installed OSX and now my machine boots up incredibly fast! Not quite instantaneously...but the performance is definitely noticeably quicker, more responsive...and SUPER silent.

Highly recommended, and if you can get a Black Friday deal like I did--a no-brainer.

Rating: 5/5 Great price, great speed, great service... November 19, 2018 As usual,OWC comes through. My MacBook was quite sluggish - a lot of spinning beach balls and programs would take forever to open, but now after the upgrade to solid state drive everything is zippy. Good video tutorials made installation easy. Even if you’ve never opened your computer before, I think that with care following the video it will be smooth sailing. The only glitch I ran into was finding a screwdriver small enough to remove those itty bitty screws holding on the back of the MacBook.

Rating: 5/5 Finally an affordable SSD from my iMac November 11, 2018 The drive works as expected. I installed it in addition to my 2TB mechanical drive. I backed up the 2TB (0.5TB used) drive. I then installed the new1TB SSD drive as per the instructional video. When all was Ok, I restored my backup and booted from SSD in a breeze.

A worthwhile upgrade, especially that the SSDs are more affordable now.
