Great price for this, not seen it this low before. It's only the 130 model, for the Macbook Air at this price.

Trancend Jetdrive, 128gb storage. Basically a shortened SD card so that it ends up flush with the case of a Macbook Air.

Obviously won't be as fast as your internal SSD, but handy if you've got a measly internal amount like me and you want to move your photos/itunes to free up space.

Welcome - take a look here hotukdeals.com/dea…412
Have the 64gb version of this, but just ordered the used 128gb as such a good price.

Only downside of these is that if the Macbook goes into hibernation it is no longer visible, good for pictures, music, films etc. but not for program files.

Hot deal.
Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a Mac flush microSD adapter and a quality/high speed 128MB microSD card instead? That's all this is anyway...

Could be - but fast MicroSD 128gb aren't that cheap, unless you can link to one, and then a decent flush adapter..the Transcend is as flush as can be, it's well designed (excepting the problem highlighted above)
The Amazon warehouse one didn't work in the end, won't recognise and won't format...no wonder it was sent back.
Mine was refunded with a BS excuse about delivery, maybe for the best if it wasn't working.

Does this work for MacBook Pro too?

There are 3 or 4 of these for various Mac's. Even MacBook Pro 2015 is different than previous. I believe it will stick out a little on some models, others may not connect. I bought a cheap SD adaptor (£1.60) for Macbooks & it sticks out about a quarter of an inch (about the same as an Ultra fit) but it works fine with a micro SD card. It will do fine until a true fit comes out.

There is a different type for the MacBook Pro, based on your year of model. Also reduced heavily but not this price.

Not the only downside. It also stops it going into a deep sleep if you just shut the screen. At least that is the case wit the MBPr, I assume it affects this as well.

I've been using this for a few years and it's been great, prolongs the life of the air by years, I'm still on a mid-2012 13" air with no reason as yet to upgrade, it's been the perfect travel machine whilst powerful enough for dev work. The only downsides is there is the random unexpected unmount but its not very often, and there are rumours about these SD drives affecting battery life but I haven't really noticed that it is on my mind now since reading about it so might do some tests.
Purchased; superb find.
