Rating: 5/5 excellent drive for studio recording June 9, 2017 This is the 3rd drive I have purchased and installed on my Macbook pro15 (2011). This my first 7200 and works great and improves the loading speed of the audio tracks. The other two 5400 drives worked great also, and still do. I use those as pack up drives with the old OS on when I update to the newer ones. In case new OS does not work with Studio One 3 software properly. I would purchase again.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent but not a SSD May 17, 2016 I replaced my MacBook Pro Hard Disk using that product and everything worked as a breeze. Afterwards I taught that next time it will be a SSD! Cost was a concern but not for my next replacement.

Rating: 4/5 works fine, non-standard usb April 19, 2016 Well priced, sturdy, compact. But its USB cord is sui generis and does not interchange with any other drives. A small inconvenience, but worth noting.

I would recommend this item to a friend! This review is from DIY KIT: 1.0TB HGST 5400RPM HDD + OWC Express USB 3.0/2.0 2.5" Enclosure.

Response from MacSales.com, Technical Support April 20, 2016 The USB cable included is a standard USB 3.0 Micro-B cable which does have a different shape than USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 cables. So whereas the cable will not connect to a drive with a USB 2.0/1.1 port, it most certainly is able to be used with any other USB 3.0 drive with a Micro-B port.

Rating: 5/5 GREAT SERVICE, PRODUCT & VALUE! May 11, 2014 There is no Apple accessory or related service resource that comes close to OWC. But the products are not the real issue. It is the stellar service from their customer service and support team members. They are what really set OWC apart from their competition. They easily rival, and actually often exceed, the quality customer care from Apple retail or the Apple online store. PERIOD! OWC has our business for life! Finally, the OWC Express USB Enclosure Transfer Kit with tools ROCKS!
