Release Candidate (RC) firmware set

There are two kinds of firmware for SSDs Mass Production (MP) and Release Candidate (RC). Prior to an MP firmware release, there are beta firmware releases and an RC firmware release. Often, the RC is the same as the MP release, however there can be small changes and bug fixes made between the two. OWC has evaluated the RC for the 6Gb/s SandForce 2281 Processor and found it to be stable with no issues reported during our testing. However, as with any evolutionary product, issues may surface as different usages and configurations are employed and it is important to understand that there will be further updates and revisions.

Since no firmware update is currently offered for the OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD, no update page exists. To see the typical steps involved with a self performed field firmware update, please visit our 3Gb/s product update page at: http://eshop.macsales.com/Customized_Pages/Framework.cfm?page=sf_firmware.html

It is important to note that the current firmware update tool requires the use of Windows XP/Vista/7. OWC is currently working on a Mac OS based update tool, but we do not have an exact availability date.

  2. In terms of standard gigabytes, 1GiB ≈ 1.074GB and refers to the actual formatted capacity of shown under Mac OS 10.5 or earlier and Microsoft Windows OS.
  3. Specific application environments such as temperature and duty cycle will affect the overall reliability.
  4. Temperature reporting is currently an unsupported feature because due to the operating characteristics of SSDs, it is highly unlikely one would ever exceed an OWC Mercury SSD's stated operating temperature ceiling of 158F/70C. However, we are looking into supporting this feature in the future via a firmware update. Firmware updates can be found here: http://eshop.macsales.com/tech_center/OWC/SSD.

Rating: 5/5 SSD is great, enclosure hmmm... January 15, 2017 The SSD upgrade is excellent. The enclosure is quite useful - however I had trouble for awhile before I figured out the cable was bad. The drive powered up but was not recognized. Luckily I had another cable and that fixed the problem. Also, I never got an answer to "what is Shipping Insurance"?

Rating: 5/5 Great Products backed by Excellent Support! January 10, 2017 I decided to give my older (but still vibrant) Mid 2009 MacBook Pro some help by getting it's tired, old, butt into better shape. I happened onto MacSales by chance, liked what I saw and ordered a 1 TB SSD and a RAM upgrade from 4gb to 8gb (it's maximum). I'm terrified of opening my computer fearful I will only do more damage and incur greater costs in repairs. I watched the videos on MacSales and they were both straightforward and seemed simple as well. I had no problem installing the new RAM - which gave me the courage to tackle the Hard Drive the week after. Whenever I had a question or hit a snag, MacSales Support personnel were available all the time by chat or phone and all of them were helpful and friendly. The laptop has gotten a much needed kick in the pants and both the new RAM and SSD have performed brilliantly. I'm a more than happy customer and I will be back when I'm ready to perform similar magic on my Mac Pro. Cheers to Macsales, their great products and excellent support!

Rating: 5/5 Mac runs like new! January 9, 2017 This kit, and the accompanying install videos, made replacing the dying drive in my MacBook Pro easy and efficient. As long as you have a solid backup of your data, it's simple. And having the external housing for the original drive made it possible for me to recover a few files that weren't in my last backup. Awesome.

Rating: 5/5 Ordered on Monday, Installed on Tuesday, Writing Review on Wednesday December 21, 2016 Ordered this for mid-2010 MacBook Pro owned by my wife. Improvement in performance is over the top. Needless to say, she's very happy with her "new" MacBook Pro. Installed the 8MB memory upgrade as well. Just FYI: I'm a mostly Windows user, and was able to work my way thru the whole install without incident. I tried cloning first, but threw the towel in on that and did the download of the fresh O/S 10.12.2 and then used the built-in Apple data migration utility to COMPLETELY move all data and apps to the new SSD drive from the old hard drive. This took most of the time - about 2-3 hours total to move a couple hundred GB of data over. I may now replace the 1TB hard drive on my Dell desktop because of how well this worked out.

Rating: 5/5 New life for an old notebook October 2, 2016 I debated doing this for a long time. Now I wish I'd done it sooner! I upgraded the HD to the 7200rpm 512Gb when I bought my MacBook Pro in mid-2010 and I was glad for the extra speed. However, as I filled the disk up even defragmenting was just not helping performance enough. Getting a new system was not an option since 17" MacBook Pro's are no longer made. So I decided to get the 1Tb SSD when I replaced the aging battery. WOW! Who needs a faster CPU? The system boots in well under a minute and everything starts noticeably faster! This is the least expensive way to get a new Mac!!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent! August 5, 2016 I purchased row 1TB internal SSD drive plus enclosure for the old one. The video instructions were simple and extremely easy to follow, and the entire conversion took less than 30 minutes for a non-techie. I have an older (late 2008) MBP and the new drive has significantly improved both read and write speeds. Plus for around $20 I now have another drive to use for Time Machine backups. All in all, an excellent deal that I'm sure will last at least five-seven years.

Rating: 5/5 Easy and effective July 31, 2016 I upgraded my mid-2009 Macbook Pro from its original 250 Gb hard drive to a 1 Tb SSD. Not only do I have more storage capacity, my computer also runs much faster! For less than $350, I am getting a highly-improved user experience, and will get a longer lifespan out of my computer. Very glad I made the purchase, and the installation kit was well worth the few extra dollars that MacSales.com charged for it!

Rating: 5/5 OWC = the best! July 12, 2016 Although I had to return this item, OWC, in their inimitable way made this as simple as could be. No questions asked, just complete customer satisfaction. This is the reason I've been buying from OWC for as long as I can remember, and will continue to do so, as well as recommend OWC to others!

Rating: 5/5 Must have upgrade May 20, 2016 My MacBook Pro was taking us much as five minutes to start up. Now, after installing the SSD it starts in a manner of seconds. I did the install from my Time Machine back up. Installing the drive was straightforward and only took a few minutes to complete. While I was at it I installed a new battery at the same time. I have doubled the capacity of my storage and extended battery life significantly.

Rating: 5/5 Good SSD, easy to change with the toolkit May 12, 2016 I bought this SSD to replace the old HDD in my Mac Book Pro 15" 2010. The speed of this SSD is very fast for my needs, and I am happy with it. It is super easy to use the tool kit I purchased along with this SSD to replace the HDD.

Rating: 5/5 Fast !!! Breathed new life into my MBP. February 13, 2016 I received my new 1T.B. SSD kit, installed the drive in the included enclosure and cloned my original drive. I booted up the SSD externally and it worked perfectly. I shutdown and I removed the original drive and installed the SSD closed up my MBP and powered up. I entered the Firmware password and my MBP could not find the drive. I shut down and reconnected the original drive. I held down the option key and started the SSD drive. I had to tell my MBP to use the SSD as the startup drive. I restarted and it was perfect !!! and fast it was like a just bought a new computer My MBP is a 2009 model 5.3 2.53 Ghz 8 gig ram. It has given new life to my MBP and this makes me very happy because I did not have to buy a new computer and go through the long process of getting it just the way I want it. One note: Although my original 1 T.B. drive works in the included external drive enclosure the drive is too thick to allow you to put the cover on. I do not consider this a problem because I can just use a different enclosure for the drive.
