Rating: 5/5 I still use this as a portable HD December 18, 2016 I got this drive a few years ago and had it in my MacBook Pro until I upgraded to an SSD. It is really handy to still have the Toshiba 1TB drive in its enclosure so I have access to past projects when I need them.

Rating: 5/5 Works Great July 17, 2016 Got this to update my mid-2010 MacBook Pro. It was just as easy to install as the online instructions showed and now my aging laptop is young again. Should hold out for a few more years until something better is established.

Rating: 5/5 Worth more! June 3, 2016 I pulled the hard drive from a Mac Mini and installed this drive, then put the Mini's hard drive in the enclosure. The hybrid drive is MUCH faster. Very inexpensive upgrade, and I have a spare 500GB external drive.

Rating: 4/5 Clearly speeds things up May 5, 2015 I bought this drive for my 13" MBP when I needed more storage space. As it learned what apps I use frequently, their launch speed quickened dramatically. I like this drive.

Only one caution: After 10 months, the drive began to fail. OWC replaced it quickly, and it's been fine since. At one point after that point, I realized things were slowing down. With OWC's tech support, It took resetting the SMC, zapping the PRAM, and rebuilding the directory using Disk Warrior before things got back to normal. So maybe the combination of the software I'm using, the HD controller, and so on allows some corruptions to creep in? But that said, I find this drive a perfect way to enjoy the speed of an SSD drive at a price point equal to a traditional hard drive.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
