Verified Buyer
Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Gig Harbor, WA Age: 55-65 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 5/5 Flawless Installation April 3, 2015 A very easy upgrade with the help of OWC's instruction guides and videos. The Toshiba Drive performs excellent. I upgraded for a few reasons. 1.) Could always use a bigger HD. 2.) I had a bad sector on my original drive which was evident when trying to back up. 3.) The price was right. With the old drive in the enclosure I was able to erase and format the drive. Voila, the bad sector was repaired so now I have another drive for storage. The only glitch I had was when installing OS X on the new drive. If the time is not set correctly (which it won't be if you followed the instructions and disconnected the battery) you will get an error. This can be fixed easily through terminal commands and hopefully OWC has updated their instructions.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
