Cheaper than OEM, More Reliable than competitor

This is probably one of the only SSD options you have when upgrading your Macbook Pro/Air. The OWC has notoriously poor reliability and high fail rate. I have no problems with this Transcend 820 model so far. It comes with all of the tools and screwdrivers you need to get this installed.

I loaded MacOS on a usb boot drive and installed MacOS High Sierra in seconds.
