Was waiting for the Sabrent Rocket again, but this will do nicely.
So tempting.
Grabbed two of these, cheers.
Can I put this in my MacBook Air 2015 with. One of those little adaptors from eBay?
Thanks OP, bought one to upgrade my WD Black NVMe 250Gb SSD as it is finally running out of space after three years. Great value. £132 on Amazon!

Received and upgraded. Read performance increased from 1,600Mbps to 3,260Mbps. Application startup noticeably faster. Good buy!

You can use this with an external enclosure. Unfortunately you will be limited to USB speeds.
XecutivE08/01/2020 14:46

Why?


Because it can be had for less and is better in nearly every aspect. I presume.....

Where did you find Adata Pro 8200 for less than this..?

Sorry. It was £99. I'm thinking of the Sabrent Rocket which has been £82. Very similar drive though and would be my choice over this. Personal preference
Got the swift 5 with 250gb c drive. Not put any sizeable soft on it and already a third full. Tempted to just upgrade it sooner rather than later.

Yes of course, I posted that 3x in the past at that price point but I doubt that would be back very soon as they're increasing the price lately. Even the Adata one's gone up. So, at the moment this is the best shot on Nvme as far as I know.

You did indeed and I got one thanks
Why are the read/write speeds quoted for this slower than quoted for the rocket and x8200, please?
Seems to be giving me an error: "This code can't be applied to your order."

Edit: my registered address on ebay (which is seperate from the postage address) wasn't in the UK. Set it to my current address and the code works! Hot!

It really depends on how old is your Mac or PC.
Thunderbolt 1 or 2 will badly restrict your speeds no matter how fast is your NVME.

I’m thinking of getting one for my MacBook that’s the same age! What sort of read/write speeds are you getting? And has it made much of a difference to your battery life?

Battery life same, i am getting 1400 ish read and 1300 ish write speed. But I used a cheap adapter . Not an NGFF one. This could be reason for low speed but still its double speed than built in ssd.

Thanks for the reply, I think from what I’ve read the mid 2014 MacBook Pro is constrained on speed by the logic board, but those numbers are perfect for me and bonus that the battery life is the same!

Did you have to disable hibernate like some forums suggest?

I am not an expert on anything.. I just bought the ssd and adapter, replaced it and upgraded to High Sierra ( Sierra didn’t recognise ssd) . Thats it.
